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."
Okay, so I’m 16, and 6’ 1.5” last time I checked, and do you want to know what really bothers me? Buying clothes. If I buy pants from a store, even if they’re “long”, they come up to my ankles! I’m not the skinniest(size 11) but I really do love my height. There needs to be an online store for tall people that is relatively cheap!:( These are my tall girl problems, haha
*Sitting with your body flat on your legs*
Person behind: Would you mind bending down a bit?
*First day back at school*
Teacher: Rearrange yourselves from shortest to tallest, class.
Me: I guess I’ll go at the very back, then…
I am almost 70 years old & I have been 6 feet tall most of my life, so I know what you are going through. It’s not easy most of the time—the clothes problem, the dating problem, but it’s really ok if you just accept it. It helps when you can find clothes right off the rack that fit & it’s really, really nice to find a tall guy to dance with, to hug. I love my queen-size bed because it’s just the right length. I wish you all the best in your future.
I’ve been the tall girl all of my life. I’m 5’11” and have been since probably about 8th grade. Because of my height I’ve been afraid to wear heels and am always self conscious in front of guys because of my height. But when I got to college I realized there are girls SO much taller than me, granted they are all athletes, but when I walk around a group of them, girls especially, I feel short and I don’t really like it. That’s when I realized I like being tall and we tall girls shouldn’t be embarrassed. Being tall is not a disability.
In my school, everyone is short! All the girls are 5’0 or shorter. Now image a 5’8 girl walking through the halls with all the short girls. Everyday all I hear is “OMG your’re so tall!” or “How did you get so tall?” or “How tall are your parents?” The funny thing is that I come from a short family, so me being tall is kind of funny. Everyday I feel discourage but I remind myself that atleast I can touch the sky and that puts a smile on my face. :)
soloboho asked: Hey would you guys consider 5'7/5'8 tall? In my school i'm considered pretty tall but I was wondering what other people thought? :)x
Yeah, I do :)
Six feet and proud! My best advice to anyone feeling a bit awkward about being vertically gifted, OWN IT! Be positive! Arch your shoulders back and hold your head up high. You are beautiful, and when you know it, that’s all people can see. I am twenty years old and have dated many a tall man, but who cares! I fell in love with a guy who is 5’8” and he makes me happy everyday. And he’s freaking hot. You’d be surprised, the second you let go of your fears is the moment all the doors you’ve been wanting to go through open.
That story made me chuckle when you explained the height of you and your now husband. I suppose my story is almost identical to yours with two big differences: 1. I’m not married (yet) and 2. A more extreme height difference!
I’m 6’2…I get stared at ALL the time and have experienced a lot of what you said (especially the boy thing because I like my hair short) and I always said I would NEVER date someone more than a few inches shorter than me…I would’ve probably capped it around 5’11. My current boyfriend? 5’7ish. And you know what? I barely notice it anymore. It’s so natural to be with him and I have never been happier!!
PS People still struggling with height issues etc etc feel free to message me, been there done that and in some cases I’m in the same boat with ya :)
