    Very

    I never really thought about it.  I came from tall parents and my grandfathers had been tall men.I'm 5' 11" and many consider that to be very tall.  I just consider it to be the height God made me.I like wearing flat shoes and I don't have the need to wear heels though when I...

    Im 6'6 and it's pretty awkward.

    ..People always asking "how are so tall" And making me feel uncomfortable because of height. Its not like i chose to be this tall.

    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.

    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'm 6'0 and I am quite happy with my height,

    I don't understand why so many girls want to be shorter. I come from a tall family so obviously I'm going to be tall. It's not that big of a deal. It isn't like anyone is going to not talk to me because of my genetics.

    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.

    I Want To Be Shorter

    I want to shrink a couple inches. I'm not hugely tall, but still considered tall to some people. I'm 5'10" and a girl. Do you know how much that friggin SUCKS?!?! All the guys that I'm attracted to just so happens to be either the same height as me or shorter. I envy a lot of my...

    Hated It

    I hated that I was tall. I was taller than most guys my age and it was so embarrassing. All of my friends were short. I stood out when I would hang out with them. I hated it. Now that I am older. I love it. I love being tall. I really do. =)

    I am 5'9. Not that tall

    but decently tall for a woman. Still limits the heels I have been able to wear on dates over the years. Seems there are not as many tall men around.

    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...

    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'm 5ft11 and I'm a girl,

    which is basically 6ft. It's just too tall. I can never wear heels and that makes me feel giant and like a man. Ew.

    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.

    Terra Alta Incognita

    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...

    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...
