    Okay o I'm like 5'10.

    .. sometimes 5'9 1/2 and people have to make a big deal about it!!! Some days I love it but most days I hate it... Men don't like tall girls and that is sad. But oh well :p

    I'm Tall For A Female

    I'm 5'10" at about 135lbs so I'm slim. I love being thin, but my height makes me so self conscious, at times even less feminine. I love really cute, girly clothes, but at my height I have such a hard time finding tops and dresses that fit right, especially fashionable ones. My...

    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 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 wasn't always especially tall

    until I grew nearly 8 inches one summer ... And then kept going. I'm from a tall family so when I was below average they wondered if something was wrong with me; now I'm the tallest in my whole family.
