    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 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...

    Just Right

    I've always been tall: standing in the back row of photos, glaring at the seat in front of me on planes, sighing sadly at those beautiful platforms I'll never buy. I'm a smidgen under 5' 10", thought I generally feel at least 6 feet tall. Because 5' 10" is tall, but it's not...

    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...

    Terra Alta Incognita

    Integrity. Where has it gone?

    I'm all for a positive self-image. I want everyone to feel good about themselves. But... Guys. If you are under 6', you aren't tall. 6'1"-6'2". I get it. Maybe you are tall for your country. In America, talk to me at 6'3" and above. Welcome to tall.

    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...

    I'm 6'4" and growing,

    and I couldn't be happier about my height, it's always been a way to break the ice with people, and since I'm shy it's helped me a lot to make new friends. Also girls really like tall guys. If you're tall, you should be proud because it's something that you either have or don't...

    I quit growing at 6'-4" tall

    and two of my three brothers are taller than me. Age has shrunk the discs in my back a little bit over the years, but I am still in great shape and taller and stronger than most men. Yeah, height has it's previaledges.

    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.
