QHey Erin, I'm 13 and I've always been a little shy in approaching people. There is this guy who I really like a lot in the class next door to mine. We always make eye contact when the door is open. The problem is I'm sorta short for my age, like 4'11 probably 5'1'' with my shoes and he's like taller. I feel uncomfortable because he's much taller than me. Do you think he will realize it when I'm next to him and not like me anymore, or do you think he'll like me for my looks and my personality regardless of my height? Do guys judge by height and does it change their decision about a girl?
I'm a short girl myself, and I used to be self-conscious about it, but people will like you for who you are regardless of height, or hair color, etc... Certain people just have preferences, and a lot of guys like short girls, they think it's cute and stuff. I don't think I've ever heard of a guy not liking a girl just because she was short.
To get to know him better, smile when you see him and say hi. Ask around and see if you know anyone that knows him. If you do, see if they will help to hook you up. If you don't know anyone that knows him, you could write him a note, just telling him that you've noticed him in the class next door, and tell him a little about yourself, ask him to write you back or call you.
This will take some courage, but what have you got to lose? If you think it's a chance worth taking, go for it girl!
And I wish you the best of luck.
