I Am Tall

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,705 People

    Okay so I'm 6'2 and a female.

    I do like being tall but at the same time it sucks because I feel so BIG, most giys are shorter than me and plus I get the tall comments all the ******* time. The average height of an American woman is like 5'4 and a man, 5'9 or 10. I'm taller than the average woman AND man. I...

    Hmmm.

    I find that I don't quite mind being tall any more. It use to bother me like no other, and at times it can be a little...eh, annoying. I'm 5'9. And have been for the past two years, so I believe it is safe to say that I probably wont be growing any more. I was never picked on...

    I am tall when my friend,

    Bruno, isn't around... 17 years ago he came to stay with my mom as a foreign exchange student for a month in the summer. He stopped growing at 14, so here at 32, he is still 7' and I'm a mere 6'6"!

    I'm 5'11 and have been this height

    for a few years. Luckily with the height I got longer legs which I personally prefer over a longer torso

    Tall Woman

    I am not as self conscious about being tall now as I was when I was younger. Growing up I hated being tall. I remember in grade school when we'd have to move between classes or go over to church or something like that we'd have to line up in size order and I'd always be in the...

    There are many great things to come from being

    tall, but one of the most bothersome is redundant questions. Family Parties for the past 2 years: Wow ANON you've gotten so tall, you never stop growing! (Me) - Uh, I've been the same height for like two years now... No way ANON! You've got to be growing still I mean look at...

    I Feel Very Self-concious of My Height

    Hello, I am fairly tall.  About 6'3 feet.   And it causes me a lot of distress.   I think in general because I had bad experiences in my youth, in any way being physically different from the general crowd causes distress.  I have often obsessed...

    I'm 6'1 but I still love my heels.

    When I was younger I used to feel weird about it but then as I grew older I realized that there's a reason that models are tall! Height is a thing of beauty and we should embrace it!

    I'm 5'8. When I was a little younger I was

    so insecure about my height, especially because all the girls in my area are a cute 5'2- 5'6. But honestly I love it now. Sometimes I even wear high heels, which I never would have even DREAMED of doing a couple years ago

    Terra Alta Incognita
