Hi, my name is Tyler and I’m a short guy. It feels good to finally be honest. Since about eighth grade, I’ve been  5’8”. Okay, fine I’m 5’7” — 5’6”, but who’s counting, right? Any short guy would tell you though, it feels like everyone is!

Being short certainly has its disadvantages, but being a short guy…that can be brutal. From dealing with your friends making fun of you, to trying to get with taller women, to struggling not to get picked last every time in pick-up basketball — being a little guy comes with a lot of large problems.

But what better way to deal with the big/little issue than to laugh about it? Hey, Napoleon was only 5′ 7” and he conquered almost all of Europe. Every short guy can have his moment! By the way, I’m really 5’5”…

Here are 20 problems every short guy has had to deal with:

Your friends always lose you in large crowds
