Are things really over for Lee and Bailey from My Little Life? Lee joined the cast of Season 1 of TLC's newest reality TV series that documents the lives of young little people as they navigate their own personal journeys, and in Lee's case, his journey to find love came to a screeching halt on this week's episode. Lee, a Mormon little person from Provo, Utah had a crush on his friend Bailey for a while and he wanted it to be more than just friends — but Bailey wasn't interested in having a romantic relationship so she cut ties with Lee and it seems like it's for good.
Lee, who is 3 feet, 11 inches tall and Bailey — who is average height — met nearly a year ago after he messaged her on Facebook, and he often referred to Bailey as the girl of his dreams. Lee finally introduced Bailey to his friends and he awkwardly put her on the spot when he asked her to go out with him on Valentine's Day in front of his pals. She said she had to work that day and she could try to get her shift covered, but she made it very clear with Lee that she didn't want to lead him on.
"I'm reluctant to do that because it would be leading you in a direction that I’m not ready for," she told him. She later revealed in her confessional that she cares about Lee and she can’t imagine her life without him, but only as friends. Lee tried to convince Bailey to give him a chance at a romantic relationship, and she shot him down again — and Lee felt that the reason why Bailey wouldn't date him is because of his size.
Bailey suggested that they stop being friends since it’s hard for Lee to accept the fact that they won’t be anything more than that, and even Lee's friends agreed that it would be best for him to stop being friends with Bailey, but Lee would rather be friends with her than nothing at all. Eventually, Lee's friends were able to convince him to end things, but he said he wanted to see Bailey one more time so he went over her house.
But something happened that really scared Bailey. She said that Lee came over and they talked and at around 10:30 p.m., Bailey called it a night and asked Lee to leave. Instead of leaving, he ran into her bedroom, laid on her bed and tried to coax her to cuddle with him. He allegedly tried to pull her down onto the bed next to him until she got up, grabbed his things, placed them outside and kicked him out.
A few days later, Lee attended a Mormon singles mixer at a friend's house to try to meet new women, and while he was there talking to another girl, Bailey texted and told him she needed to talk to him. She later showed up and Lee met her outside to talk.
"What happened on Wednesday wasn’t cool," she said. Lee apologized for the way he acted because it scared her, but it didn't help Bailey change her mind. "I've been thinking about it a lot and I don’t know how to say this… I think it’s time that you move on and I’m gonna dip out of your life even as friends." But fans will just have to wait to find out if this really is the end for Lee and Bailey.
