    I hate it. I'm 5'8".

    It's so hard to find a guy interested in me because of how tall I am. I suppose it's a turn off for them. Plus, I'm into a bunch of guy stuff too...old cars, motorcycles, and flipping houses. Ehh...maybe I'm intimidating? Whatever...

    Tall?

    Most girls are fortunate to reach one metre seventy. I'm one metre seventy nine. That's five feet eleven inches! Am I tall? There are models and supermodels taller than me (not that I'm in their league!). I'm glad I'm tall, but most of my girlfriends are shorter than me.

    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...

    Yes, I am a tall woman.

    I stand at 5'9" barefoot. When I wear my four inch high heels I will stand 6'1". I love being tall when I am in high heels because my boyfriend is 6'4" and I love hugging and kissing while I am dancing with him.

    Not very. Just 193 cm.

    My mother's 182 cm and I never my father but he was allegedly around 190 cm. My stepfather's 200 cm. Now that's tall!

    because I can reach so many things in my home cupboards above my head. Also, my husband is quite tall at 6'5" and I love wearing my four inch high heels when we go dancing dressed or nude. When I wear my high heels I stand at 6'1" I love holding my dance partner close to me...

    I Feel Very Self-concious of My Height

    We don't have an EP for I am short.

    My younger brother is 6'"6 and I'm only 4'10" here is why tall is highly over ratted in my book. In an earth quake you talk people can't get under a table, I would have room, for a flat screen t.v. dvd or blue ray player and snacks.

    Are Men Getting Shorter?

    I am 5'8", which, I know you are all saying, that really is not very tall, but lately it seems like it is. I live in Canada, and it is not unusual for women to be my height, and men are usually taller.  But something is changing.  Is it just me or are all the men getting...

    Terra Alta Incognita

    So I've been tall my whole life- some people have growth spurts, but I grew fast and all but stopped by high school. Obviously, it gives me a certain lack of perspective about being anything but the first one asked to reach something high on a shelf, standing out in every crowd...

    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...

    Well, Not So Tall

    I'm not really that overly tall. But I'm the tallest person in my family. I'm 6'2". And I'm a lazy American who should know the metric system better but doesn't so I can't convert that to centimeters in my head. Lol.

    At the time being I'm the tallest girl in my

    family, clocking in at 5'10. Most shoes I wear bump me up nearly an inch, and a few pairs send me to 6'0 or so. It use to be a huge insecurity for me, and can be sometimes even still. Until the seventh grade, roughly, I was the tallest in my year and a name given to me the...
