    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...

    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...

    I am 13 and 5'5 3/4. Well technically I will be

    13 in a week. My friends are all 5'3' ish. I wished I was short since I was in preschool. I drink too much milk and I get 7-8 hours of sleep. I cry all the time. I got my period not too long ago. I really really hope I don't grow past 5'8

    I'm a 5'11" woman and I honestly can't stand it.

    I feel like I tower over everyone. My personality is shy, and I would rather be dominated than dominate. I wish I was about 5' nothing and tiny. I want a guy that is way bigger than me, height and size. I want to be able to disappear in him. I want to feel protected by him. I...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Just Being Tall

    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...
