    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 am 5"11 and being a little taller

    than everyone else is good but is also emotional so I will suggest to find someone else closer to your height as possible is the best way, my personal opinion is we are beautiful people no matter the height we are all beautiful in our on way

    I am 6ft4 and i am pretty happy with it.

    Sure my skull has the density of steel about now of all the time I hit my head somewhere. But I can easily get to the higher shelves, I have no problems watching concerts (unlike the poor sods who happen to be behind me) and it's easier for me to find people in crowds. So I'm...

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    most people on here think it's awkward

    or weird because they're tall maybe that's because all their friends are short but for me I honestly never thought anything of it im 6"2 1/2 at 15 but when I play basketball I feel average height or sometimes I feel short because I have to guard a 6"8 guy in the post lol

    I'm 5'11" and no, never played b-ball.

    But I did play tennis and volleyball. Growing up i hated being the tallest girl in class. It was always hard finding skirts or dresses that were short but not too short. And boys always seemed intimidated by girls taller than them. Now I'm happily married and embrace my...

    Well, I'm not that tall.

    I'm taller than most girls and shorter than most guys. The average height of girls in my country is exactly 5 feet tall. I'm 5'6.

    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...

    everyone else is short. I've only met one person who actually made me feel short, that was weird AF. That guy must have been nearly 7'.
