For all the beautiful tall girls and the problems we have to endure. Through all the teasing, feeling out of place & short hems, I'm finally coming to a point where I realized that there's nothing wrong with being a little different. People still try to tear me down about it but there will always be people doing that. These problems are mostly to make you laugh & go "OH MY GOD. THAT'S MY LIFE." But this is more than just a place to share each other's problems. It's a support group where we encourage girls to see the beauty within them (so play nice, ladies). Ask me anything & feel free to submit!
"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be and you're only as small as the world will make you seem."
Hi, I just turned 13 and I’m 5’10.5”. I used to hate it because my height makes me look much older, cuz my legs are like really long compared to my body. Like I’m still young enough to order off the kids menu but some resteraunts won’t let me! People always say, “OMG ur soo tall!!” But now I’ve just learned to embrace it. At our last dance I wore probably 3 inch heels, like why not. People were like “wow, Do you really need to be taller?” But I don’t care because I looked awesome, a foot taller than all my friends, but I felt great.
To the girl who has a shorter boyfriend…I completely agree. I was obsessed with finding a guy who was taller than me until I met my fiance. He’s the same height as me at 6’ (maaaybe a tiny bit shorter) but it doesn’t bother me at all. I love him more than words can describe.
So girls, don’t get too hung up on finding a guy who is taller than you! I know it might be awkward and you might get made fun of at first, but you’ll soon realize that when you fall in love, it doesn’t matter :)
When you have to bend down so far to use the sink everyone can see your chest -__-
First of all, I love your blog! I thought it would be really cool to share my story with all you tall girls out there. I’m 6’0 and I’m currently 18 years old. I have always been ‘the tall girl’. Almost daily I get to hear: ‘oh wow, you are tall!’. And it’s not just strangers that point this out to me, it’s also the people that I see daily, people that have known me for years. Although I prefer people stating the obvious than all that name calling. I think most of us went through that. And if you’re in high school or even middle school and people are saying mean things to you, don’t worry it’ll stop. It does get better. There is gonna be a day when you can finally tell yourself: ‘hey, you know what, being tall isn’t that bad!’. Finding that confidence might take some time, especially if you’re being bullied. But you’re gonna get there, I swear. Stand straight. Walk proud. Tall girls are BEAUTIFUL.
Growing up, like the elementary years, I thought that being tall was awesome and I loved it, and then middle school and early years of high school hit. Being tall for a girl wasn’t awesome and in fact you were a freak. This kid down the road called me a giant red headed freak, and eventually I got sick of it so one day he calls me this name I just full out run at this kid and jump on him and just start throwing punches, I mean the fight didn’t last long my dad pulled me off the kid, but he never called me that name again, after that point I stopped caring what people thought of me. I’m tall there is nothing I can do about it, unlike being short where I can just put on heels. Look I’m tall and I love it. Yeah people might stare or ask me if I play basketball (now when I get asked that question I usually reply sarcastically for example if the person that asks me that is short I say something like “No I don’t but you do you dress up like a leprechaun?” they usually get irritated and walk off. But here is the one thing that will drive me up the wall, at concerts when everyone is standing up and dancing I have been asked to switch seats with someone so that a shorter person can see, or squat down a little, or simply to move. Like no, I paid for this seat and concert, and I am gonna enjoy this show, I can’t be shorter, but short people you can be taller put on some heels or whatever.
Embrace your height, rock it.
I’m 22 and 6’ since 7th grade. My entire family jokes at every family function about how my “type” of guy is at least 6” shorter than me. Other than the issues with clothes I love being tall.
msgamer1 asked: I just turned 14 and I am 6'1.5 ever since I was 5'11 I could never find any pants my length, and when I wanted a onesie I was the only one out of my friends who couldn't get one because my legs were too long it seems like I have been shunned from wearing clothes and to special order my jeans has been terrible I just want clothes that fit right!
Click the shop tall link! There are plenty of stores listed where you can find jeans :)
july-love asked: I’m 20. All my school life, I was like a freak and hated my 6ft.But I accepted it. You showed me I’m not alone and people are haters cause tallness is beautiful. Contrary to what I’ve been told, I can date a guy shorter than me if I want, cause as Kid Cudi said “they gon’ judge me anyway, so -Whatever!” And yes! some short guys love tall girls. Now, I’m proud and like it when people look at my feet to see if I wear heels! For the younger girls, be proud. Remember, tall is graceful.
I just have to say, I love what the girl said about how she always told everyone she was 5’4” even though she’s actually 5’8”. When I was in high school, I was very adamant that I was 5’7”. In reality I’m only about an inch or two taller than that but she gave me a good laugh when I remembered that.
Also, I just want to thank the admin of this page. You are awesome and my hero and I’m so grateful that you have created this community of wonderful people.
