    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 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 6'3 barefoot and it's awesome

    and bad at the same time. I get stares at ALL THE TIME. People especially men are intimidated by me. Taller men are intimidated by me so yeah. I do play volleyball in college and yeah and no I don't play basketball.

    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.

    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 really hate being tall though.

    I mean it's so awkward being around all my girl friends who are shorter than me. I don't even know my height; I haven't checked in 2 years. It's basically gotten to the point where I stopped wearing the shoes I like just to not add height. Any advice?

    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 a VERY tall woman.

    I am 6'4 and loving it. I used to be self conscious and I got picked on a LOT for my height but I love it. I've been this tall since I was 17. School was hell. Boys picked fight fights with me and girls picked on me. Middle school was so bad. Girls would harass, taunt and...

    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!

    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...
