Age 48 From Watertown, Massachusetts Online - 1 week ago Little Woman Seeking Man (6465 Kilometers Away) Disabled. I live on disability because I care for my mom who has ALz. Just looking for someone to talk to and maybe hang out with and hopefully grow in something more. Age 32 From Hyattsville, Maryland Online - 1 week ago Little Woman Seeking Little Man (7064 Kilometers Away) hello it's a nice to say hi to you, well I'm Katerina very laid back person funny and very friendly I'm very easy man to go, I'm caring, loving, passionate, funny, positive.That's how things are right now for Becky and her boyfriend of a little over a year.They met at an LPA convention, and though they talk every night, they've only spent about three weeks together in person.Little people are probably just as likely to marry or have long-term relationships as average-sized people, says Leah Smith, vice president of public relations for LPA. They may have to deal with prejudice from average-sized people — Smith says lots of her female friends have been told by men, "If you weren't little I would date you." And if they want to date other little people, they have to navigate dating in a community that's small and spread out — and can have a big gender imbalance.
Dwarfism is present in less than 200,000 people in the United States. Achondroplasia is the most common type of dwarfism.Things changed when she got to college and started going to events hosted by the organization Little People of America (LPA): she started getting a lot more attention from men who were also little people.Becky, who's now 28 and prefers that her last name not be used, says: "My whole life I was saying, I'll date whoever I connect with, but it happens that my two relationships have been with little people." She says that's probably because they've faced common obstacles — but dating other little people has brought challenges of its own.So even if you grew up in a big city, there may be only two or three other little people in your age group — and since families who have children with dwarfism often connect, "the likelihood is you grew up with them, and they're like a brother.It doesn't mean you can't date, but it's harder."Because of this, a lot of relationships between little people start out long-distance.
