Look How Small My Hands Are is a catchphrase often said to be used by women as an excuse to measure their hands against a man's hands and flirt with them. In memes, the term is sometimes seen as the female equivalent of the phrase "Where My Hug At" and is commonly attributed to 'pick me' girls. The phrase became popularized as the subject of memes on TikTok as early as 2021. In 2024, the phrase gained increased interest after a meme asking if you'd rather have a "where my hug at" son or a "look how small my hands are" daughter went viral.
