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."
I’m 23, and I’m 5’10. I actually love being tall, and I embrace it! Sure, clothes and shoe shopping can be a bit annoying, but there’s only one other thing that annoys me. I hate it when people tell me things like, “Oh, you can only date tall guys!” or “I bet you would never date someone shorter!” And someone even had the nerve to tell me, “Looks like you’re doomed to marry someone tall!” Wtf?? First off, who I date (and eventually marry) is entirely my choice! And second, OK, I admit, I am mostly attracted to tall guys, but I’m not shallow! Give me a guy who is a few inches shorter than me, is smart, funny, has the best personality in the world, and everything I could ever ask for in a significant other. You better believe that I would pounce on an opportunity to date him in a heartbeat! I’d rather date that amazing, shorter guy than a complete a-hole who is taller than me!
Wow! just found this. Wish this was around 40 years ago!! I am no longer a tall girl…..I am over 50, so maybe that makes me an old tall girl?! I am 6’2. Just a note of encouragement….it does get easier!!! There seems to be way more clothing options now then even 30 years ago, and I even noticed on tv there are occas couples where the male is shorter then the female…done in a good way, not creepy. #1 thing I would encourage ALL TALL GIRLS : Please Stand Up Straight.Slumping or slouching does not work. I see more tall ,beautiful girls now then 30 yrs ago and thankfully most have great posture….so glad!
I am 5’5.5 at 12 years old and, honestly, I love it. Not many people tease me about it because they know I’d punch them, but sometimes I feel out of place. When I group-hug my friends, I feel strange because I’m so much taller than them. But I just toss it over my shoulder and move on.
My mom believes I’m going to keep on growing and is worried that I won’t find a husband. I agree :P I have a long time to go, though, so I’m sure I’d find someone taller than me.
mish-mashh asked: i don't have a question, i just want to share something.i'm an 18yr old girl, 5'10 tall and i LOVE my height. i don't want to be even an inch shorter. yes, i've been made fun of, because i'm taller than most of the people around me. when i'm around short people i feel kind of clumsy and huge, but i wouldn't change the way i am. never! being taller and seeing things from high feels awesome. and don't forget something that we, tall chicks, have - LONG LEGS! ;) :)) i'm tall and i absolutely love it
itdbeecstasy asked: I'm 17 and stand at 5'11". Grad's coming up, and nothing's gonna stop me from wearing some heels. Embrace your height!
ahsenat asked: Here's to all the tall ladies with their feet hanging of the edge of their mattresses at night.
parallelyou asked: I'm like 6' 1" and i weigh about 153! All of my friends are much shorter and weight a lot less and it's embarrassing when they talk about weight! I feel huge! That's a normal weight right?
Yes, you’re actually on the small side.
If you don’t feel comfortable talking about your weight, don’t.
pistol-gold asked: I am 5'10 and I'm 15. & I'm so scared that my modeling career will end soon cause of me being to tall when I get olderr. Does anyone know what's the tallest you can be for modeling? help. me.
It really varies by agency. I’ve only heard of a height requirement for a model once but it was just that one agency.
If someone turns you away for your height, steer your interests somewhere else. Don’t worry about being too tall, just continue to let your personality shine through as a model.
