11 Perks Of Dating A Short Girl

11 Perks Of Dating A Short Girl

We are more than just a great little spoon.

Being 5'2", I know there are some serious perks that my boyfriend loves about dating me. Here are a few things he always says he loves about dating a short girl!

1. You're always taller than us.

No matter how short or tall you are, when you stand next to a short girl you automatically look tall. It's the one loophole an average height guy can find to make him look like he's 6 feet tall.

2. You feel needed.

We can't reach stuff off the top shelf without jumping or climbing on the counter, so we always ask you for your help.

3. We're the perfect height for hugs.

You don't have to worry about our head pushing against your throat or being at an awkward level when you hug us. We fit perfectly right under your chin so you can breathe easily and still see everything over our heads.

4. You can pick us up and move us really easily.

If we're sitting in your spot or fall asleep on the couch, it's really easy to scoop us up and move us where you want. Plus, we won't kill your back while you lift us!

5. What we lack in height, we make up for in personality.

"Though she be but little, she is fierce". We may be small, but we have big personalities that you can't help but fall in love with!

6. You always have someone that can crawl into small spaces.

If you dropped your keys under the bed, don't worry, we can crawl under and grab them without even hitting our head!

7. You never have to worry about not having enough room on the couch or enough blanket.

We take up just a quarter of the couch or blanket, so you have plenty of room to stretch out and relax without feeling crowded.

8. We can easily sneak through a crowd and pave a path for you.

It's super easy for us to push our way to the front of a concert or make it through a crowd and beat the rush to the parking lot, just follow our lead and don't lose us in the sea of tall people

9. We are an excellent little spoon.

We're the perfect size for cuddles!

10. You can easily hide things from us, just put them on the top shelf!

Whether it's our birthday present or your favorite snack you're trying to hide from us, just put it on the top shelf and we'll never be able to find it. Even if we're snooping!

11. Everything we do is adorable.

We can't help it, being cute is part of being short and everything we do is just so darn adorable!

'Bohemian Rhapsody' Is The Must-See And Must-Hear Movie Of 2018

If you haven't yet seen the new Queen movie, when you do, you definitely won't regret it.


"Bohemian Rhapsody" was hands down one of the best movies we have seen in a long time.

Focused on the life of Freddie Mercury and his career as the lead singer of the well-known rock band Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody paid a great tribute to the late singer. Rami Malek plays Freddie with extreme talent, there wasn't one moment throughout the movie that I thought anyone else could've played the part.

If you don't know who Rami Malek is, this was not his first movie, he played in the Twilight Saga's "Breaking Dawn" (parts one and two) and also in multiple "Night at the Museum" movies. Also featured in the movie were Mike Meyers, and Allen Leech ("Downton Abbey's" Tom Branson).

It cannot be said that Rami didn't channel Freddie's personality.

The actor and the movie itself did a great job as portraying Freddie as the legend he truly was. It walked us through a brief mention of Freddie's humble upbringing as Farrokh Bulsara and the very beginnings of Queen, to the Live Aid concert at the Wembley Stadium in London six years before his passing. Watching the movie, you feel all of the emotion, the confusion, the love, the eccentric personality of Mercury, and the sense of family the band really had despite disagreements they had throughout their career.

Of course, I wasn't even born when Queen was performing, so in a way, I feel it might not have affected me emotionally quite as much as the way it affected many others in the theater. With laughter, tears, and even clapping, we were all engulfed in the life and career of Freddie Mercury.

Although some things may have been a little more dramatized or even underplayed, such as Freddie's sexuality, relationships, and the other band members' lives it was a great movie. In my opinion, even without those aspects, you could still relate and feel what Freddie was feeling, it did touch on a few relationships, however, this was not the focus of the movie and I don't feel it needed to be.

While the "Tomatometer" on Rotten Tomatoes only gave the movie a 60%, the "Audience Score," shows that 94% rated the movie with a score of 3.5 stars or higher. Some people who left reviews on IMDB felt the movie should have shown more of Freddie's life after Live Aid, and another review of only 3/10 stars claimed, "This move comes off like a LIFETIME film and not a serious Queen or Freddy Mercury Biopic for the big screen." Despite reviews such as this where people claimed to be disappointed, from the 55,071 user ratings, the movie earned an 8.4/10.
