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."
iwontfall03 asked: Being tall is a pain. I'm 17 and 6' I want to cry. All my friends are 5'8 at the tallest and I'm a runner so I am just awkward all the time I can't fit in to any clothes without them being super expensive. The only upside to my height is that people think I look like Taylor swift. It's impossible to find appropriate shorts and dressed and I can't ever wear heels when I go to a party or special occasion unless I want my body to be the only thing seen in pictures.
1) Low heels are a great alternative.
2) Use those long legs to be a better runner. I’m a runner too and i find that my legs are a blessing.
3) Not feeling awkward means carrying yourself with confidence! You’re beautiful and you need to let the world know! Let yourself know!
Someone sent me an awesome Taylor Swift line: He didn’t like it when I wore heels, but I do.
callingdibs asked: being so tall none of your pants cover your ankles and your whole family makes fun of you for being a freak :/ im 3 inches taller then everyone...
You are not a freak, you’re unique!
That rhyme was totally accidental but it’s true. Some people just can’t stand to be ordinary and have to put you down because they aren’t. They wish they had the wow factor that you have when you walk into a room.
Also, check shop tall for jeans.
wouldyouchangeyourfate asked: Here's the thing. Our society has such a double standard when it comes to height discrimination. Calling someone short a midget is bullying, while calling a tall person "Shaq" or the "jolly green giant" is considered playful and completely acceptable. Although a disgusting double standard, at least we are stronger because of it. Because when tall girls get offended we laugh it off and strut our long legs in the other direction. ~6'1 (even though the nurse couldn't see the measurement up there)
im only 15 and I’m at 6’3 my doctor said I am going to continue growing. I always get asked if I play basketball and all those tall questions. What can I do to feel more confident?
The questions are just because of people’s natural curiosity. Most of the time if they come off as offensive, it’s because people don’t realize that they sound annoying. I find that when I just smile and answer them with a witty comeback, they are less annoying. As for confidence, always hold your head high stand up straight. I have problems with my posture but I find that when I correct it I come off as the confident person I want to be and people respect that.

I wanted to say that I'm so happy to have found your page and everything I read here makes me laugh/smile and feel awesome!! Also, I was wondering if you knew any places (online or not) that sold jeans $20 and under? Really on a budget and dying for new jeans. Thank You for your inspiration and Much love from one super awesome long person to the next!! <3
I also have a problem finding cheap jeans :P
F21 (always), Old Navy and JC Penney (when they have sales, which is pretty often) all have jeans under $20.
those-darling-little-red-lips asked: I just though I'd like to share that I'm 14 and 6 ft tall. And I'm not done growing. It's good to know that someone can relate:) I love your blog:D

We’re all in the same boat, trust me, girl. But we’ve got
TALL GIRL PRIDE :)
I am 28 years old and 6’2”. I’ve been this height since I was 15. I struggled through high school being utterly and totally depressed that every boy I had a crush on was shorter than me and therefore didn’t even consider hanging out with me to be an option. Lets be honest, in high school you just want to fit in. However, my life changed after graduation. After coming into the real world and having some experience with men and just general everyday life, I’ve realized being tall is fantastic! Heads turn every time you walk into a room, people are in awe of you and jealous. It’s all in how you wear it! All in how you carry yourself! I probably get a comment about it everyday, like most tall girls. But i love it. It means I’m being noticed, it means people remember me. Men are so curious about what it’s like to be with a girl like me and women are jealous that I command their attention. Just remember they may act catty or what not, but this is because they feel threatened! They know youre getting attention and that youre more woman than they ever will be. i’ve even grown so comfortable with my height that my husband is an inch shorter than me and we wouldnt have it any other way. So my biggest piece of advice ladies……it’s all in how you carry yourself! Hold your head up high and command their attention, OWN IT! You’re better off if you do!
