I Am a Very Tall Woman

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 647 People

    I've been talking to a few guys

    and everything fine and dandy until I tell them how tall I am. It's annoying being told that I'm an interesting or fun person to talk too and then being dropped because of my height. What's wrong with tall girls??

    I Love Being Tall And Gladly Embrace It

    I am what some would call a 6'2 amazon and I have to say I have always loved it. I have never understood why other women seem to hate being tall, to me it is grand. It is nice to be able to reach things and be able to walk with confidence. My husband is an inch shorter and we...

    I'm 6'2 and 16 years old.

    Height is a blessing and a curse. If only boys my age were as tall or taller then me *sigh*

    Yes, I am a very tall American female too.

    I am 5'11" in my bare feet. I love wearing 4 inch high heels when I am out. This is because most men are over 6 feet tall and I do not want to feel inferior to a man.

    Why is it so hard to find a tall,

    strong girl that wants to talk? I have tried talking to some girls on various dating sites but they've all blown me off. If you are a tall girl that would be interested in talking, please message me.

    I have always been tall.

    In high school, at age 16, I was 5'10" and at age 18 and starting college I was 6'0" in height. Yes, I did play girls volleyball and basketball in high school and in college. By the way, the air up here is just fine.

    I'm 6'3 and this is no joke.

    Yes I may have lots of advantages but dating is a huge problem. When I meet guys they end up dropping me or I get stood up because of my height. If only if there's a lot of men taller than me. That's a bust. :(

    I stand 6'0" tall even without any shoes on.

    I love being tall so I can reach things in the kitchen and bedroom cupboards and in other places. I love tall men and love to dance with them close and up tight in a slow moving music selection.

    Yup I'm 6'2 and YES I'm a very tall woman.

    I get the tall comments all the time and it's so annoying! It's like they don't know I'm tall. "Oh you're tall" or "You are so tall!" Well duh. I know that! Sheesh! I wish I was like 5'8 or 5'5

    I've been this height since the age of 12.. I was always that tall girl in all my classes.. I was a little subconscious about my height, so I use to slump over so I would appear shorter.. As time passed and I grew up, so did my shoe size.. At age 8 I wore a size 8 shoe, at 9 a...

    It's interesting in many of these experiences

    men are mentioned (usually regarding rejection or being 'too tall' for them)...like they are relevant to the fact that a woman is tall. I chalk it up to cultural stigmas. We get one body to live the rest of our lives in. Regardless of whether they tell me it's 'too tall', it's...

    Being 6'2 and a woman has a lot of challenges.

    I get stares and people talk about me and I get the, "Wow you're tall!!" or "Do you okay any sports since you're tall?" People ALWAYS have to make a big deal out of my height. My college professor is only 5'0" and some people mistaken her for a child and she said to me, "You...

    because I have tiny hands feet and ears. Like measurable to my 5'4" friends, and a baby face. I felt like an ugly oath until high school and then I blossomed and I learned to love my tall and will wager with any of you dwarfs "Anything you can do I can do sexier"
