I Am a Very Tall Woman

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 662 People

    I am 5'8 male! This puts me (admittedly,

    very erotically) at a disadvantage to other men that are taller and who women see as more fit for mate choice. As tall women, how many of you would date a man my height, and how many of you would embrace only men taller than me? Be honest!

    My height is due more to a medical malpractice error that we since resolved with the company, but either way I ended up growing from around 5'0 in middle school to 6'6.5. It is awesome being able to do things that most people can't (and I rock heels), but at the same time it's...

    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.

    Im 5'9... Maybe not VERYY tall.

    . But most definitely tall. Ive always wished i was 5'6 or 5'7 so i'd feel more feminine...but not much i can do about that. So do you think of tall women as being 'manly' or less feminine? Or am i just crazy?
