Lets start with saying I’m 4’10” and 95 lbs.  HECK YES I get that and whats worse is I get the “O you’re so cute trying on rings and dresses when your just kid dreaming about your wedding” WTF people I am almost 21 about to graduate, back off I am old enough to do all this.  It also doesn’t help that I don’t actually have my ring yet so I really look like I’m playing dress up.  I just politly tell them I am 20 and woman that can make her own decisions.  I love being on the short and small size but it does kinda suck when I want people to take me serious about being engaged.  Well there is my vent and us small people need to stick together!!! lol

i get this all the time! i’m 27 (28 in july), 5 ft tall and 90 pounds. the “you’re so cute!” comments do get annoying, but the question that really bothers me is “do you eat?” i get asked this ALL the time. the sales girl at my first fitting asked me that. they’re lucky i had already bought my dress there otherwise i would have left.

@lilchicana:  O my goodness that i must say is the worst! I cannot walk into my grandmothers house without her asking about my eating habits.  I have a very healthy appetite thank you very much. I had one lady at a jewelry store act offended when a size 6 ring was too big for me, its like sorry I’m skinnier then you but that is so not my fault.

When I was younger I used to get called cute a lot and I used to find it really wearing… nobody would say I was sexy, or pretty, or even smart or funny etc. I just got called cute. That said, it certainly doesn’t happen any more LOL… I look my age more and more now! I don’t know… it’s wearing for you guys now, but at least it’s only temporary. Enjoy it while it lasts and then you will be able to look back and laugh at the things people used to say to you in years to come, when you hopefully swap the “cute” look for something a little more sophisticated!

What about going dress shopping by yourself or with a friend who will back you up? Once you find one or two you really like, you can bring your mom back for the final decision so she’s involved.

Haha my bf and I are getting engaged soon and I’m 22 But people always think I’m like 18. I’m about 5’6″ and naturally only 106 lbs so I’m just a small person who looks young! My mom also loves princess ball gowns but I feel like I’ll loom even younger! Lol

Yes…. on all sorts of occassions, it was blurted out the most during dress shopping. It makes me feel more like a little girl then an actual woman and I am 27 years old….

My ex’s ex emailed me after we broke up saying she was sorry she did not warn me about him sooner. We chatted back and forth for awhile and decided to meet up for drinks. When we met, she was about 5’10 and looked down at me. “Oh my god! You are so cute and little!!!!”

Um okay…. good thing I thought she was a keeper otherwise she would have been kicking rocks after that comment. I think it isjust one of those comments made with the best intentions even though the person hearing it would take it personally.

I have the same problem, I’m 22, 5 feet tall, and weight 105 lbs. People still think I’m in high school when they see me. I’m going to be starting graduate school in August, and I’m really worried that when I TA undergraduates, they won’t take me seriously because of my height. Boo!

I have always had that same problem. I am 5’3 and weigh somewhere in the area of 110lbs … which is after me putting on a good bit of weight last year. I’ve got a very young looking face and a supposedly high pitched voice – and so people usually assume that I am still in high school. Thankfully though, I didn’t run into any problems while dress shopping … other than some random woman asking me my age and then afterward telling me that I looked much younger.

I’m 19, 5’3 and 100-something pounds. I took a recreational dance class last year, and when the other girls in my class found out how old I was, their jaws dropped. At recital, they started playing the “Guess how old she is” game with the other dancers I didn’t know. Most guesed about 15-16. 

I haven’t gone dress shopping yet (only been engaged for a week), but I’m already prepared for the awkward questions about my age and I’m trying to find an outfit that’ll make me look older.

I’m 20 (almost 21), am 5′ and 90lbs. Nobody ever believes how old I am. I can’t wait to get carded on my birthday. Everyone thinks my 14 year old sister is the “sister that’s in college.” She’s taller, got boobs, and mad acne and make up.

I’m 27 and people tend to think I’m much younger.  I like this sometimes, but it can be incredibly frustrating… it’s like people don’t think I’m really serious about ‘adult’ things.  Yep, I’m almost 30.  Yep, I’m getting married.  Yep, Fiance looks older than me, but he is actually 2 years younger than me.  Sheesh!  That’s part of why I really don’t want any balloons at the hall.  I made sure to steer everyone away from that.  I feel like that would accentuate my perceived ‘youngness’ as opposed to youthfulness.  I love fabric ribbons, mirrors, tulle, flowers, etc though, so we’re doing lots of that.
