    I'm 5`9 and a girl, It's not THAT tall,

    but the average girl in the U.S. is supposedly 5`4. I LOVE my height. I love standing out. I would never change it. Only problem? the inseam for most jeans are too short. I'm always towering over my friends, which I love.

    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.Β 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...

    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...

    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 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 5'8. When I was a little younger I was

    so insecure about my height, especially because all the girls in my area are a cute 5'2- 5'6. But honestly I love it now. Sometimes I even wear high heels, which I never would have even DREAMED of doing a couple years ago

    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

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...
