    I hate being so tall.

    Most of my friends my age are shorter and I look like a giant. I have only two older friends who are taller and they are male! So that doesn't really count

    I've always wanted a guy

    who is a few inches taller than I am, yet, being 6'1" and only 16, that's unfreakingbelievably hard to find unless I date a guy who is hella older than me.

    I'm six feet tall and everyone "congratulates"

    me for that. They wish they were me, wanna be as tall as me. But I never wanted to be tall. The average hight in the PH is like 5"4 or 5"2. My friends are already like 5"8 and they still say they are too short. But what's wrong with being short? I wanna be short! It's maybe in...

    6'1 and Growing

    Well, I'm a 16 year old girl and 6'1, but the docs say i still got another inch in me which means 6'2.  I HATE being tall!  I also hate when women who are like between 5'9-5'11 complain about being tall.  Trust me if you are anywhere in the 5vs you ARE NOT TALL...

    The Revelation Of Height

    When I was younger, I thought being tall was really cool. I was always the tallest in the class and had an easy time with a lot of the sports. However with time, I've realized height is more of a disadvantage than an advantage. I'm 15 now and just over 6'5. Clothes and shoes are...

    Everyone looks at you by the corner of their eyes when you walk past. They may not do it so obviously but you definitely are aware of it. It's irritating. And worst is when strangers even come up to you to comment on your height. Like okay. Haven't they seen tall people before...

    I'm 16, 5'8" (173cm) tall.

    It seems fine but it only applies 'fine' if I'm a guy. I've been the tallest since I was in kindergarten. Forever at the back of the queue, sitting at the sides of classes, standing in the middle during class photo taking and being the center of attention. It may seem nice...
