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."
mrscalypsojackson asked: sadly, im not what people consider "model tall" or "pretty tall" but freak tall. (Im 6"4") and built like a boy, barely any curves, and ive got some extra weight,,,definitely not a good combo :/ wish i was built like some of yall! 6"0 nd under,,,yea i WISH but stay beautiful ladies <3
Uhm…let me know who says you’re not pretty tall because I think 6’4 is beautiful. Models aren’t the only pretty people out there!
As for the curve situation, try wearing more clothes with a cinched waist and a camisole underneath. What you are given is beautiful, girl :)
thegirlnextdoo-r asked: It seems like everyday someone just HAS to make a comment about my height! I'm 5'9 and I'm in 8th grade and I'm really shy. So I never know what to reply with when people ask "Why are you so tall?" and "Wow! You're so tall!" Like no shit. But do you have any suggestions?
-Oh my god! I am?!
-No, I’m Snow White and you’re all my dwarves
smileitmakestheworldgoround asked: It pisses me off that people always ask me "do you play basketball?" I'm like when you see a guy that's 6 feet tall do you ask him if he plays basketball? Or when you see someone who is extremely skinny if they model? or someone thats short if they work at santa's workshop. Like no. Just because I am a girl AND tall does not make me a basketball player.
stopcallingmegretchenwieners asked: i have this friend and hes so hot and the best to be around and he likes me but hes shorter than me h e l p I'd love to go to prom with him but id have to wear heels and that would just be so bad wow
If you like him and he likes you, why not? You guys will have fun together anyway! Don’t let that stand in the way of being with someone you love to be around. You may be missing out on one of the best nights of your life so far by worrying over being taller than him. If you guys like each other, you will get past your height difference and have a kickass prom night :)
I hope you send some pictures!
I told myself I would never date a shorter guy. I actually like hugging tall guys and feeling like I’m being protected and whatnot. But I’m falling in love with a guy that’s shorter than I am. As far as the difference in our heights, let’s just say the top of his head probably reaches my nose. But you know, I’m okay with dating shorter guys in the future now. Because I realized that in love, it’s not always about what I want, but it’s about the giving of yourself. Like, what can I do to make my significant other happy and not just what is most comfortable for me? I still believe he would do anything to make sure I’m okay and protect me when needed. His hand holding mine wouldn’t feel any different if he were taller or if I were shorter. Plus shorter people give amazing hugs, and you know what? He loves my hugs too. Because he can put his ear up to my chest and say, “I can hear your heartbeat. And I love that.”
I am so glad to see you promote a healthy attitude about being a tall girl. I am 43 and 6’ tall. I spent most of my teenage years barely dating because the tall guys dated the short girls and were intimidated by height. Then college came and guys that were 2, 3, 4+ inches shorter asked me out. I figured, what the heck. I am happily married (16 years) to one of those shorter guys (-5 inches) and have two beautiful children. Our son is on track to be 6’+. Our daughter is disappointed to be on track to only be 5’3” - 5’5”. To this day husband tells me he loves my height and wishes I wore heels more often. God Bless my shorter guy and my wonderful height. Keep up your positive outlook!!
im five eleven and im a freshie too. it sucks, believe me, i know. i know exactly what you go through. getting humiliated every day, always being jelous of the girls with the perfect bodies. when you meet a new person the first thing you hear is “wow, you’re tall.” sometimes thats all you get to hear from them because they dont want to be friends with a giant. but tall women will conquer the world someday, believe me. :)
But more importantly you’re a woman. I’m 20 and 6’1.5.” First of all, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t wear heels! Heels have NOTHING to do with height! You are a woman, not just a tall woman. Strut your stuff and walk around like you’re a freaking model and if someone asks you if you are, say yes and that you’re doing a shoot in that city even if it’s your city. Secondly, don’t rule guys out because they’re shorter than you. You know how it feels being excluded because of something you can’t change. Don’t spread around that mindset. Have a range of how short you’ll accept to how tall you’ll accept. Some of the best guys are short anyway. Don’t trade something that could be real because you want someone taller than you, yet he treats you half as well. You deserve the best. Also, you don’t have to play ANY sports if you don’t like them but if you do, make sure you do your best at it and try to get a scholarship because college is super expensive. Stay positive. Love you ladies!
love--interrupted asked: I'm 5'10" and I'm a freshman in high school and I tower over most kids. Half of my friends aren't at my eye level and I always feel bad when I don't see them/: Oh and I LOVE your blog I can relate to everything!
That eye level thing literally happens to me ALL the time! Don’t feel bad, if they love you, they’ll understand, haha! Thanks for reading :)
