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."
gabriellabella16 asked: Have you ever heard of Charlotte Greenwood? I was doing research for a paper and came across some information about her. I think you should do a post about her! She was an actress and dancer between the 1930's-1950's and she was around 6' tall! I found her to be an inspiration and I'm sure many girls following this site would too :)
I read a little bit about her :) I’ll make a post over the holiday season.
powderedginger asked: What are some tips if my boyfriend is the same height as me... it can get really awkward or uncomfortable cuz our shoulders are at the same height, ya know?!?!
Don’t focus so much on the height or bring it up all the time because it will probably just make both of you feel insecure about it.
Think of it like this, you’re at the perfect height to look into each other’s eyes. haha :)
tawpie-deactivated20130203 asked: Going off of the tall girl/big feet post, Can you imagine what we would look like with size 5 feet? It would be like having no feet. We would have nubs. We would be tall and nubby footed and we would probably not be able to balance very well.
Seriously! I doubt we’d even be able to walk. I don’t mind my shoe size until it’s time to shop. lol
I love being tall, and telling people I’m “5’12” to trip them up. :D I think the best moment of my life was at a youth banquet I was serving at as a sophomore last year. At the end of the banquet, one of my best friends, a graduating senior, approached me and said let’s take a picture together. So we did. He’s like 6’5 so I actually looked normal height. What touched me the most, though, is that he is autistic and he was so excited to be able to get a picture with me, aside from my excitement over having a picture with someone “my size.” It’s great to be able to reach someone like that because you’re tall like they are. :)
thedayiwassad asked: We may have big feet but come on. When we wear 5 or 6 inch heels they look good! When a girl with size 5/6 feet wears 5/6 inch heels her feet look strained and uncomfortable. We can rock heels. Tower over the average men and be proud.
llamakurt asked: I just found this tumblr and its so wonderful- thank you so much for doing this because I feel so much better about my height. Im eighteen and 6"2 and have always hated my height and I have always been so jealous of my shorter friends. Guys don't usually know how to act around me and so I usually isolate myself at school. A lot of the guys I have liked in the past have been shorter than me and my friends seem to think its hilarious- reading this has made me feel much more confident. Thank you x.
You’re so welcome. I hope you realize how beautiful you are now :)
Don’t hold back, stand out.
mauup asked: I am ashamed to wear heels. I´m really tall and all my friends are smaller than me. I care of what other people think of me. What shall i do?
Wear them! You’ll find that what other people say about you doesn’t matter because it won’t make or break you. Ultimately, they don’t determine what you’ll be in life. If you like to wear something, wear it because you can’t live your whole life based on what other people want you to do. You lose your originality and become ordinary and insecure. You were given your height to stand out, spark a little controversy and be radiant!
My #1 tall girl problem. There’s one only one Tom Brady & another tall girl already got him. Haha
This site has improved my life! I stumbled upon it yesterday whilst looking for AU11 size shoes. Can I suggest Tall Girl Problem: “How tall is your husband?”
