A female , anonymous writes:

This is a stupid question, but I am very insecure as I am so tall. I am six foot and tower over people, especially when I wear heels. I am very slim and used to be a model so everyone thinks I am so confident, but the truth is I hate it so much. I always worry my boyfriend is looking at small, dainty women and wishing I was like them rather than a giant freak. In bars men always come up to me and ask how tall I am. It makes me feel like such an oddball.

Is it unattractive to be so tall? Why do people feel the need to comment on it? Even walking down the street I hear people saying how tall I am. Men do you fancy tall women too?

A female reader, anonymous, writes (10 March 2013):

We tall women are naturally born BUSINESS ladies, because we have much higher amount of testosterone in our bodies than our shorter counterparts. If you look at the list of "100 Most Powerful women in the world " 90% of those ladies are 5.7 and taller.

50% of tall women are happy with how they look like, and only 15% of short women are happy with how they look like.

Tall women are also considered more intelligent than short ones and that is damn true !!!

I am 5.9 and I LOVE my height a lot and don`t want to be even an inch shorter. I always stand out because of my height and my intelligence. Even that I am 44 now, married and have children, I still get plenty of attention from men, both younger and older.

I use to hate my height. I wanted to be shorter so that I could get more attention form boys in high school. it would be easier to fit in etc. I was always treated differently by men. But eventually I embraced my height, realized I was beautiful and that many men actually liked my height. Now im not self conscious, I wear heels now also. Im 6'3 by the way so with 3 inch heels i am 6'6 and I dont mind the stairs, looks and all. I am who I am. god loves me.

Adeboyefa agony auntI am only 3 inches shorter than you( at 5'9) so I understand how you feel. I used to consider myself mannish because of my tall, slim body with few curves until I saw curvier women with beards and moustaches, large-breasted women who complain of back pain and being stared at in the wrong places, and shorter women straining their legs in very high heels. What you dislike about yourself is often envied by others. On the issue of men,I want you to know that no matter what you look like, you can never appeal to everybody or to nobody. Somebody out there is looking for a woman like you. Many tall men prefer tall ladies to short ladies they would have to bend down to kiss. Also, tall is in right now. Most beauty pageants the world over require that contestants be at least 5'7 tall. Being tall makes you look slimmer and men love the long legs that accompany tallness. Tall women have a smaller baby bump during pregnancy and are less likely to have childbirth complications.A list of famous tall women including models and beauty queens can be found at www.tallwomen.org. A Biblical example of a tall and beautiful woman is the Shulamite maiden( Songs of Solomon 7:7). Enjoy your height.

A reader, anonymous, writes (27 September 2011):

To be tall is to be beautiful. When people look at you because you are so "tall" own it- give them a beautiful smile and let them know how happy you are... they can't not feel some kind of attraction to you. Most importantly, being 6 foot, I feel that beauty comes from the inside; resulting in a beautiful glow with positive energy radiating off of you. I am 6 foot and weighed 225 pounds at 17. I am now 20 and I changed my life completeley. I weight 145 and very dedicated to the gym; therefore I feel so blessed to have the gift of long legs!

It's all mental. I have to remind myself that I can not assume what people think about me when they look at me. I can't read their minds therefore I can't assume really what they are thinking. Stay confident in yourself and know that they are probably thinking "Wow she is beautiful and different." I catch myself constantly assuming that people are thinking negative thoughts about me. How do I REALLY know this? I don't- I am assuming. This is when I become objective and have to tell myself to knock it off because it's simply not true. I realized that this world is not all about me- and people could really care less about how tall I am. They are living their own life- do they really care about you? Forever I will smile when I think about being tall.

I feel like I am saying a lot. This is such a passionate topic for me. Losing this weight has made me strong- Mentally and physically. It was a very good lesson to feel at such a young age. My insecurity of being large with a pretty face made me vulnerable to men. I was used and heart broked.

If I could ultimately give anyone advice I would tell them to take care of yourself. There are the facts of the body- anatomy, phisiology, health science, nutrition- read them and become committed to caring about yourself and living the ONE life we have. Be obedient and simly care about yourself- or no one will. But, most importantly- WORK OUT. Get your metabolism up so your body can keep burning; show some dedication to you. If you force yourself for a long period of time to "Just do it" then it will become a habbit.. A GOOD HABBIT! I believe life is all about habbits and free will. You have the choice to develop your habbits. People need to choose GOOD HABBITS! Mind over matter- the human being is very strong. Our brain is unstoppable. Know this and use it to your advantage.

Use your height to your advatage as well- you get noticed. Noticed more than anyone else. One day, at the righ time, the right people will notice you. I believe it's a gift.

Thanks :)

I love this!!

I'm 6ft, maybe 6ft 1. I never know, and don't care, but people find so much joy in guessing and telling me how tall I am. I also have curves, hourglass figure, but still slender. EVERY DAY I have been reminded I'm tall, all my parents friends say how "gorgeous" I am, but it's always the insults I remember and hold on to. I always felt that when I get older, I will get male attention. But now I realise, since I was 13 I have had male attention. just never from boys my age. I'm 19 now, and I still have insecurities and days where I wish I was I could be a "safer". But the days I feel great, I feel amazing, and people gravitate towards me. It's ironic so many short woman wish they were tall, but tall woman always want to be shorter. So fuck it. Work it. We stand out..

A male reader, anonymous, writes (21 April 2011):

I've never replied to a blog or online question, but I couldn't let this one go. I'm 6' 1 and 1/4" tall, my wife is 6' tall. Her natural hair color is brown but she has green eyes and skin that really go better with red in it (auburn highlights usually), and at 53 years of age I consider her the most beautiful woman to have ever walked the earth.

And guess what,, she doesn't believe it either. She's awkward about being tall except with me, when she wears 3 and 1/2 inch heels. Yet she always carries herself straight and tall as she can, and all I can say about the total effect is that of magnificence. I stand in awe of her, even the memory of the first time I saw her in 1989.

I'll bet you are beautiful and stately as well, according to an old rule that a previous partner of mine said about women, which is, " the degree of the neurosis is proportional to the pulchritude." Loosely translated, this means the better looking they are, the more critical of their looks they are.

So act and carry yourself like you've always known that tall = magnificence in a woman. Put it out there and don't let the Barbie dolls intimidate you, because you are a rarity, and blessed as a queen is blessed. Beyond that, you can pretend not to notice you are tall, and some guy will some day show up who will be willing to die for you.

I'm not kidding about any of this. You have a gift; make the best use of it!

Okay, I'm 15 years old and six feet tall. I like being tall because you can gain weight and it evens out and you still look thinner than shorter people, and its great at concerts lol you can see over everyone, but I'm still insecure about it. I get teased at school a lot, especially by shorter guys, and I disagree with the person who said that tall women are too insecure to date shorter men. I've dated shorter guys, and I just don't like it. For me, the taller the better! I just feel like I won't ever find a guy that's taller than me, you know? Gah teenage insecurities I guess.

Try your very best to ignore negative comments about your appearance. People who do this are immature and are likely jealous of your height.

Lots of guys like taller women, especially me and I'm only 5'5. I will admit though, lots of you tall ladies don't make yourselves approachable to short guys. You'd sooner avoid us and hurl your best insults at the smaller guys who dare try. I'm sure it doesn't help your overall confidence when society says you've failed as woman by settling for a shorter guy. It doesn't help my cause because all it does is give taller women more preconceived thoughts about shorter guys being inferior. So, if you're an honest, good girl without attitude who doesn't need to date a taller man, good on ya! Short guys do love you and appreciate you!

Hello, I stumbled across your blogg and noticed we had some things in common. I'm a 6 foot 3 women! I'm barley 21, but when I was younger I didn't always except my height only and soly because there were no other girls like me. Now that I'm a little bit older and have grown into my physical beauty I love my height!! Although I wish there were more women like me that I can relate to. I love the attention I get as well!! I'm always being stared at and the most obvious question I get is " how tall are you" I tell them and "that's soo cool, your beautiful, you should model" usually follows! I havnt always gotten positive feed back though, I was made fun of a lot when I was in grade school, and absolutely hated it! But now that I have grown into myself as a young women, I have learned that confidence is key. Many haters will feed off of your height insecurity just to make you feel bad about yourself because there jealous. Don't mind the haters and walk tall!! & don't worry about the men, I've been like by short and tall guys but how they treat you and personality is really all that matters. My last bf was 5'9 and loved my height! So be bold, stand confident, and be the beautiful women you are.. Also all this positive feedback really incourages me as well! Best of luck

Does your boyfriend treat you like the queen you are or does he passively ignore you scoping out the eye-candy for your replacement? Everyone is guilty of the wandering eye. That's human nature. Not everyone is guilty of taking advantage of what they see. That's when cheating becomes an issue. Do you trust your boyfriend? If not, your insecurity could be the problem that might drive him away.

It is very important for you to cherish your height and your long legs. Not everyone in this world is blessed with height, which is something you have as a woman. Don't get me wrong, I love being 5'4 but I have days when I wish that I was your height.

I'm a 5'8 guy and I find myself very attracted to women much taller then me, much shorter than me, and around the same height as me. It's because I am very secure and am not threatened at all by being with a taller woman; I'm attracted to who they are. More than half of the women I have had longer relationships with have been taller than me.

So why tell you this? It's a way of saying that your attractiveness is about your energy, your attitude and who you are as a person, not your height. You need not be defined by your height.

So enjoy yourself, and be the best person you can be.

"Get over it!!!! I'm 6' 2" and lovin it! I know it's annoying when short men try to chat you up and come out with all thier cheesy lines, but trust me, being taller is sooooo much better. Just slap a nice pair of heels on (difficult to find when your a size 11 like me, but you can get them), stand to your full height and take a good look around at all the lesser beings below you...GO GIRL!"

Sorry, but I have to respond to this post and give my 2 cents as a 5'6 short guy. What makes me less of a man because of my height? I would seriously like to know. What this woman said in this post is the wrong attitude to have towards all men, especially the shorter guys who do find you attractive. Why is it annoying for taller women if a guy significantly shorter approaches you? I don't use cheesy lines on any woman, tall or short. Nor do I mention the height of a tall woman that I'm interested in approaching. According to the "golden rules" of mate selection, no man should ever use the "tall" word when trying to talk to a taller lady, which I believe is very true. It doesn't bother me as much when people say I'm short, but I understand how taller women get annoyed with people telling them what they already know and asking them about playing basketball. Some taller women have this strange belief that many shorter guys view them as a fetish object and pass us off as creeps. No woman, tall or short is a fetish object to me and I've never been told that I'm a creep. I like taller women and I get annoyed by those who only see height first and judge me based on that. I know it's a given that most taller women don't like dating shorter guys because of their own insecurities or personal preference. Most of these women feed on the approval of their girlfriends and family members, but refuse to make decisions on their own. There are quality guys of all shapes and sizes, not just tall men. It's funny how we've grown so much as a society yet people still believe the stupidity and ignorance about short men and their supposed shortcomings. Complete utter BS. Men move out of my way when they see me coming because I'm not a wimp and don't need to play the part of tough guy when I know I can handle myself.

"I've observed that short men are willing to date tall women, but it's tall women who are TOO insecure to date a shorter man. Tall women tend to blame short women for stealing all the tall men rather than blaming themselves for being too shallow to date a shorter man."

I agree 100% with this post.

I am a short man, 5'5 on my best day and I love tall women. They take my breath away with their long legs, big sexy feet and elegant strides. I love short women too, but I'd sooner choose a taller lady over a shorter lady. That is my preference. It's not like I have much choice in this world as a shorter guy because most women prefer men near 6'0 or more, especially the short ladies. At the same time there are lots of tall ladies who refuse to date or even be seen with a guy significantly shorter than they are. These women define their femininity based on the height of the man they are with, leaving no room for the short guys. I don't consider myself less masculine standing beside a taller lady, but enough of them have serious issues being the bigger person in a relationship.

I'm always looking to change the opinions that many women have about short men, but it's pretty hard to do in a world defined by height. I haven't given up hope that there are tall women comfortable dating a much smaller man.

Hell yes, men like tall women. Of course not every one does, but I would say a large percent of men do. They ask how tall you are as a door opener hoping to start a conversation with you, because you are unusual in their eyes, but still attractive. Just proudly tell them how tall you are, and if you find them attractive, just boldly ask them if they like tall women. I think you will like most of the answers you get. I am 5'10" and have had girlfriends from 4'11" to 6'2". Bottom line is men like women. Just try not to make them uncomfortable with your height, and most of them would love to date you.

Nats90:) agony auntHi there! I was browsing around, wanting to know what people in general thought of us tall women... do they find us attractive???? I ask myself this all the time, as like you, Im 1.83m tall and Im 19 years old. Since the age of 13 Ive been so very tall and i had such a complex over my height that it bugged me for years.... Till highschool. I was so insecure and never acceppted myself for it... however things have changed gradually over the years and I grew confident. It took alot in me to put my difference behind me! Why try and fit in..... When you were obviously born to stand out!!

I realised that every1 has their own taste... There are men who like shorter women, and men who prefer our long legs ;)

I must brag, that when I walk in a room, I love the eyes that follow me. Im different, I stand out. I accept who I am! And Ive never felt so confident as I do today! I still struggle sometimes but with every day I feel so beautiful being tall! I want to thank myself friends and family for helping me see that. Be proud of who you are. :)

I would love have a tall girlfriend, though then again, I'm rather... altitudally challenged myself since I'm 172cm. I like being the short girl in a relationship honestly, though there's not many girls over 172cm so I usually tend to be stuck with being the tall one. So I know how you feel in a way. Not much on advice, and since I'm a girl I guess I can't answer the "guys" part. But for the girls camp I cast a vote in favor of tall schmexiness. I go for personality though so I don't much worry about looks as long as that's cover. Though like the others said, don't worry about it as much, life's too short for silly things like that.

Listen forget your inadequate boyfriend and and all the other inadequtes, I would go with you my dear I love tall women, this rubbish about making tall girls feel inadequate and insecure about thier hieght came through because of rubbish society and its big man=small woman crap which I never subcribe too and has been outmoded and outdated since the Huntergatherer days, come on those brain dead wonders out there things have moved on since those days, I am 5ft11 1/2 tall so I am pretty tall myself but I would love a girl 6ft-6ft10 and I will cheerfully walk down the street with her I don't care also like her to bea bit traditional girl but I don't care if she is tall and hears high heels she will problably look real sexy in them

So don't worry about this boyfriend you have if he don't like that you are tall kick him to the kerb, he will regret it one day when he has bowed the peer pressure of his """""friends"""""" and realises what a fool he has been although I think he more looks at those dainty women and thinks "heh , nice try ,but your not as beautiful as my girlfriend is ,so tall and beautiful , still I will make out you have quarter of a chance WHEN YOU HAVE NONE HEHEHEHEHEH" Walk tall sexy tall girl , don't wory about the fools who don't like tall women, their sad loss

Yeah I like tall women, why be so insecure? is it the lousy scumbags who make disparaging remarks because they want small stumps of women? not me I don't mind short women but I really want a tall girl I am not that small myself (about 5ft 11) but I really love to have a girl 6ft or 6ft 4 or 6ft 5 as long as she is good looking and well porportioned the inadequate excuses for males who don't like it can say what they like

Be proud of being tall, you are very special and those same inadequates saying bad things now problably wish you were with them or in a few years time wish they had someone like youalso just because someon likes tall girls doesn't mean that is a fetish, it is a preferance for tall girls same as useless societies preferance for tall men being with short women

Wow, hey, I am a 5'7" guy, I would be happy to take any extra inches (up to 8) that you would be willing to donate. Seriously, there are guys and girls who are willing to pay up to $100k to have their legs broken, wear a frame with pins piercing through their skin and bones, sit in a hospital for 3 months in extreme pain while lengthening, then followed up by 3-6 months of consolidation on crutches. Furthermore, I gave this all serious consideration and even spoke with 2 people who were doing it. Being short also sucks. It makes me feel inadequate and I feel it seriously limits my dating pool. I am good looking and attractive in other ways (intelligence / wealth), personality needs work, but I have a sense of humor. I really wish I could be taller though and just want to say the grass is always greener on the other side. I wish you could donate some of your height to me, I would pay you well for it!

I'm the runt in my family at 5'10" and my little sister's 6'2". I know we've both always been insecure about our heights and feeling feminine. (There's nothing like the "do I wear the fabulous heels out on this date and be 4 inches taller than him or wear the boring flats instead) debate.

That said, it gets easier to embrace the height with time. You've just got to learn to be confident. My current boyfriend is 5'8" and constantly says how sexy he thinks my height is and that his friends are jealous of him dating the tall girl. Guys who ask about your height are probably just attracted to you and desperately trying to find something to say. (1) We've all said inane things trying to chat someone up. ("It's really cold out today." "How's your drink?" "Hey baby, what's your sign?") and (2) they probably think of pointing out your height as a compliment - so own it and be proud!

I'm 5'll in in my twenties. In the U.K there's quite a mix of heigts and generally the taller guys seem to be in the younger age bands (i.e) 18- 30- which I guess is a sign of the times. However, I have noticed that of these taller guys ther's a significant number who, fine, choose to date shorter women, as they're in abundance, but go out of their way to dodge you in the street or quickly divert their eyes- I've even had a few give snarling type expressions- as if to say' 'how dare you draw attention to my height, I'm with this short girl for a reason!' or 'don't think you can have me cos I'm 6'4!' -How sad.

But never mind- for all of them there's always the kind gentle eyed tall guys who have been waiting for a tall girl like us to com along all their life. Plus don't forget the shorter ones. I've stupidly shyed away from attentions of a good number of shorter guys who I thought were lovely at the time but was too bashful to date, or thought they were just teasing me and did'nt see me in that way. So don't waste your life feeling down- just do the things that make you happy and negative people around you will fade into insignificance. One day you'll wake up and think- why did I waste my life worrying about that...

I am attracted to women not just their looks also who they are as individuals, I find it absurd that people have types that they try to adher too!! Usually these people are shallow and you shouldn't want to date them anyway! There is one woman on here that is positve to you but then goes on to say that she has not got the courage to date a man shorter than herself, stunning!

A female reader, anonymous, writes (29 May 2008):

Most importantly you should think positive. You are gorgeous and you need to know it. A confident looking, happy person will attract others. Nobody wants to know the uncomfortable looking person cowering in the corner.

Always remember that everyone has some insecurity, whether it is their skin, hair, weight, looks, personality - think yourself lucky, your insecurity is actually an asset.

OK so it is harder to get clothes and shoes to fit (we are trying to help you there!), but people do treat you differently. A tall woman is automatically treated with respect. People assume you are confident, intelligent and capable of doing things for yourself. A short woman is often patronised and treated as someone younger and less intelligent than they are. As you get older and start a career you will find this an asset - especially when you start earning more money than your shorter female colleagues!

When it comes to boyfriends, tall girls like us sometimes have difficulties. You may think that boys your own age don't like you - but it's not true. They are in awe of you and don't quite know how to approach you - YET! Usually younger men find it hard to know how to chat up a tall girl. Because of their lack of confidence in their own decisions they usual go for the easy option (the short blonde in skimpy clothes). Young men have a strange mentality - they all wear the same branded clothes because they need to belong, whereas a girl would wear what's fashionable, fits and what suits her- the clothes could be any brand.

Girls simply develop confidence in their decisions from an earlier age. Girls know what they like and why they like it. They tend to like a boy for his personality more than his looks. A boy usually goes for a what is perceived by his peers as an acceptable look for a girl: whether this be related to height, hair length, looks or dress. The good news is that as they get older, and boys grow up to be men they find out what they really like.

Remember that you don't have to dress a certain way to attract a boyfriend. And if you go over the top you are in danger of looking like a cross-dresser! When you go out with your friends to a pub or a club, you will find that a lot of women go out of their way to be noticed - they wear the shortest skirts, the most make up, the biggest hair. You have to simply walk into a room to be noticed. And they are looking at you in admiration - not for any other reason.

OK, so you will never be the cute little girl, but the cute little girl will never get to be the elegant, sophisticated women that you will be. Think of Cameron Diaz 5ft9.....Liv Tyler 5ft10....Zoe Ball 6ft....Liz Hurley 5ft9.... Nicole Kidman 5ft10...Uma Thurman 6ft...Julia Roberts 5ft9....Claudia Schiffer 5ft11....Donna Air 5ft9....Charlize Theron 5ft9...Christy Turlington 5ft10....Cindy Crawford 5ft9.5...Minnie Driver 5ft10...Elle Macpherson 6ft.....tall is beautiful.

Hey there chick, I am 6ft 1inch and im proud of it.. But saying that, i was bullied at school for being so tall and slim and it used to bother me so much, and because at school i couldnt find a boyfriend my height, i used to get called all the names under the sun, and i wasnt proud of my height, i used to slump around everywhere. But now i am just 6'1" and proud, i work in a bar, and all the blokes that come in ask me how tall i am, i get the whispers in the street "oh my look how tall she is" but u tend not to hear the bits afterwards "i wish i was that tall" " i wish my legs were that long" things like that... Your right, not all men like tall girls, but most of them do. They ask you how tall you are,because it is rare to see a 6ft girl. Its not them taking the piss out off you is there way of saying wow! I never get a bad comment said to me about my height and i never had, its just that i thought i did but they are actually compliments.. When i were my highest heel it makes me 3" taller then my husband. (6'5") and i love it.. The only thing i dont like about being tall is that i have a 38" inside leg and the places i can get my jeans from are limited! Stand tall girl and be proud :) xoxoxox

Don't give up too soon! It's my understanding that most women (at least in N. America) reach their adult height by age 17 or 18, but many men continue to grow until age 20. (I grew over an inch between my 18th & 19th birthdays.) If your B/F is also 16 and only an inch shorter he may yet equal, or exceed, your height.

I understand your psychological desire for a large, strong, guy to protect you. It might help your relationship A LOT to seek out women in similar situations - especially those in their 30's or older who have been together for many years - and find out how they view your problem.

Even for a guy, I'm moderately tall at 6'2 but I don't think it would bother me to have a relationship, or sex, with women up to 6'6 or so (my wife is just under 5'10).

I'm sure you get stares, questions, and comments like "What's the weather like up there?". It's insensitive, rude, and makes you feel awkward but I doubt that people doing these things are truly malicious toward you.

He is literally a head shorter than me.

At first it sort of bothered me, because other than his height, he's very attractive to me.

I was talking with a friend of his and I expressed this to him. His friend looked at me quizzically and asked "Why does that bother you?"

"Well," I said, "because I'd have to bend over to kiss him and..."

His friend just looked at me and I realized something. Then said, "But, if he was taller than me, HE'D have to bend to kiss ME."

His friend looked at me proudly, glad I figured it out on my own.

It doesn't matter who has to bend. There needs to be some flexibility in every relationship, regardless of height. (And by 'bend' I mean it literally as well as metophorically).

I know we have this image in our heads from movies of men and woman standing together, and the man looking down into her eyes, or kissing her on the forhead etc...

But why feed into the stereotypes?

Hello, I think you should embrace your asset of height and be proud!! I know as an male on the shorter side of average height (five foot ten, 177.8 cm), I am both fascinated by and usually attracted to tall women. I find tall women fascinating I suppose because they are relatively rare in comparison to the average height of US women. I cannot explain why I find tall women attractive, I just do, so be proud and know you're a beautiful person!!

As far as people teasing you about it, I would think it all comes back to their insecurities. I know I am a very shy and sometimes insecure person, but I never make comments that hurt another person, I find that unnecessary and wasteful. I honestly am a but intimidated by taller women than myself and I hate that fact, so I am working on not being so scared. I know I wish I were taller :]!!

And every time I meet someone new (male/female) they always say ‘Omg you are SOOOOOOOO tall!’ and I can say that it hurts. It hurts a lot. It sounds like I have a third arm or something like that. And sometimes it seams to me that people just want to hurt me with no reason at all when they discuss about my tallness about 20 minutes. It seams like they have no other things to do in their life than noticing how tall I am in such ugly way. And I also hate when some short/medium height people say – Being tall is not SO bad. Yeah, I would like to see all of them being tall just for 1 day!

Hi, I am 5 foot 10 inches, average for a guy, but I have a preference for taller women. The tallest woman I have dated is 6 foot 5 inches in her bare feet and she looked absolutely stunning when wearing high heels. Does it bother me that the woman I am with is so much taller. No. Because where it counts in the details of a close personal relationship, height is not relevant.

To me there is nothing more majestic and stunning than a tall woman who is comfortable with being tall, does not round her shoulders to look shorter, and likes to wear high heels rather than the very flat shoes that so many tall women use. Be proud of your height. After all, it is great at a football match or outdoor concert.

The only thing that counts is if you love your partner and they love you. Age, height, race, are just details.

Just enjoy it.

But here is the thing – although I’ve been taller than every average person all of my life no one, but literary NO ONE told me: ‘wow u r sooo tall!’ You now why? Because I do not emit ‘I’m so tall and embarrassed because of that’ energy! When people see me for the first time, they usually say ‘wow, you look like gazelle’ or (more often) ‘I would kill to have body like yours (girls)’! Believe it or not it is the truth! It is the truth because I’m so proud at my self generally that this ‘tallness’ is even helping me to leave better impression on people because I KNOW HOW TO EMPHASIZE IT! And that is the only catch!

No one can convince me otherwise. I do tend to idealize on some short or petite women but I think there is an 'opposites attract' thing 'there'. I have had a girlfriend that was 6' tall and her height was great; I finally could look at a woman eye to eye standing up, dancing etc.

Hi

Don't you know the reason you probably feel insecure is that most men are the most insecure creatures in the world? And you being taller than them dents their oh so fragile masculinity, because they associate the two, "masculinity and tall == big man" and their conservative minds are boggled by the really rather ordinary idea that a woman can be tall too.

Historically, few women have been as tall as some modern young women. It was always believed that men are tall and women are small - so the boys got more food and... surprise, surprise, men were tall and women were malnourished.

Nowadays women are fulfilling their potential, and made to feel unfeminine for it.

If you're tall in body, then small people - I mean people who are small in their minds, not necessarily in their bodies, undeveloped as people - may try to make you feel bad about it.

Don't.

Be tall in your mind and in your heart too. If someone makes you feel bad for being a beautiful, healthy, well nourished woman, they're not worth knowing.

Many men, many, find tall women attractive, and they're likely to be the men who are less insecure and precious about their masculinity, who don't need every little thing to tell them they're the "big man".

If a man tries to put you on the spot like that again, pat him on the head and tell him you're not that tall, it's him that'ssmall.

I am a guy, and I'm going to answer your question with another question (however annoying that may be).

Is your assumption that all guys are the same? We're not: Some like curvy women, some like thin; some like red hair, some like blonds, some like brunettes; and, yes, some like tall and some like short. It all comes down to personal preferences--and some men have no preference at all.

Don't obsess over it--if the man doesn't "like" you because of your height, then he isn't good enough for you (read: "shallow") and move on with your life and find someone who likes you for who you are as a person, not a set of phenotypes.

So, the answer to your question is three-fold: "Yes," "No" and "Don't care"--some men fancy tall women, some don't, and some couldn't care less.

Also, someone might want to ask how tall you are just out of curiosity and admiration or whatever, so you can always answer and say you're proud to be tall and if they have a funny reaction, then you can say: you're just being like that because you wish you were taller.

Now her only worry is tire on her weal chair because after a car accident she lost one of her leg, and the other one is unmovable! And what a pair of legs those were! Now, she would like to be 7’0”, and again dealing with her biggest “problems” (boys, pant, heels …) only if she could walk! And she is only 26! You are never happy with things that God gave you until you lose them! But please, be smart and first of all grateful because you still walk straight having two legs, two arms, two eyes… I know that it’s in peoples nature that everyone’s “suffer” is hardest for them sleeves, but girl, be grateful for having healthy (and pretty) body and for having possibility to go and shop pants that are 0.0003 inches shorter then you like!

hello , im a very tall man 6-8.To tell you , im particularly attracted by tall thin girls , but no more than 6-3.I generally date short girls because they come to me and praise my height.The outcome is that being tall is wonderfull, even for girls , but you have to stand up and be proud .Tall men love very confident girls, it's a kind of 'defi'.I advise you to look up , be proud , dress very well , smile but not too much , not to care about what other people say ( they are jalous or they dont have nothing to do in life , or simply impressed).So you're attractive if only you show how proud you are.If you want to date short men ,oyu have to put height related issues on the side.Don't care about people

These are my 2 cents worth i can share with you from my height experiment

Dear Tall Woman:

I am only 6' tall, sorta average for a guy, and have gone out with only 5'10"-6'3" woman, and I just realized this after randomnly reading your 2006 question.

The other replies were quite thoughtful, offering a lot of positive advice.

If you are still reading replies, I would say simply stand up straight! Wear the heels in which you are most comfortable: 2"8"! It takes practice not to break your ankles, though! If your boyfriend, like Tom Cruise, has a problem with heels, say see you later. There are plenty of tall girl admirers. Easier said than done, I know.

I think usually when girls get as tall as 5'10" or more, they do so in middle school. They usually react two ways: great! Good for sports. Or oh no all boys will think I'm an amazon. They may. Many guys prefer women who are shorter. Similarly, many women prefer men who are taller. Find the one who likes YOU for YOU!

I know clothes and shoes are tricky, too, but if you look online or go to www.tallgirls.com, you can find good stuff. While online, I am sure you can find tall girls' sites and tall clubs in various cities.

Trust me, it's tough to get comfortable with one's skin, but finding friends and sig. others who are supportive makes it a lot easier.

Good luck becoming secure among us midgets and finding someone secure in himself :).

I don't think you should feel uncomfortable with people asking you about your height.

They are probably envious.

x.Helpful.Cupid.x agony auntHiya

First of all i think that men do find taller and slim woman rather attractive as they like the "model" figure. I think your height is perfectly fine, and you must be very pretty to model!! And also, some men have different prefrences, so some may like really short woman, why others prefer taller women, like yourself. Guys are difficult to read, but i would just be yourself, and try and have alot of self confidence, and if people want to ask your height..let them!! Just be proud of who you are and guys will come to you!

Good luck xx

Hey. Be happy you were blessed with height. I am also very tall. Whenever people ask me how tall I am, I make a joke and say, "Five twelve and a half." Growing up I was always the tallest and in high school even made fun of. I never let it get to me. And if you used to be a model, I'm sure you are GORGEOUS!! So smile when you walk down the street. Girls envy your height advantage, trust me, and men drool over your lonnnggg legs!! I have dated both shorter and taller guys.

Yes, some men are interested in taller and/or bigger women. Not really diffent than physical preferences that many women have in potential male partners. I'm a middle aged, 5'9" male who is currently in a relationship with a 6'6" woman of my age. Our relationship is based on many aspects of mutual likes and desires. We love being in public together and feel comfortable in all situations. Life is precious and too short to have hang ups about size differences.

A male reader, SCF +, writes (9 December 2006):

I am a bit taller than 5'9" and am incredibly attracted to taller women. If I see a shorter woman who is very pretty, I am not that attracted to her. I really wish I could change this, because it limits my choices of potential mates, but I can't. So, tall women are beautiful in my eyes.

Hopefully, one day it will be more socially accepted for the woman to be taller than the man. We have reached equality in almost every other aspect of society, but the stereotype of the man having to be taller than the woman still exists, although I do see couples where the woman is taller than the man. However, this is rarely the case in movies, magazines, and other things we are exposed to on a daily basis.

As an aside, I believe that some short and tall people are naturally attracted to each other. This is why we see very tall men with real petite women. I believe, based on things that I been told and have read, that there are plenty of shorter men that are attracted to much taller women, but the much taller women are not comfortable going out with them. That's too bad, because I think that, in many cases, they don't do this because society would see it as being awkward.

Life is too short not to be yourself and not to be happy.

A reader, anonymous, writes (4 December 2006):

Being tall is just an aspect of being a person. It neither is attractive or disgusting. It just is. What makes a woman or a man attractive based on looks is not how tall or short they are, but how they dress, how they move, how they groom, how clean they are, etc, etc, etc. Being tall or short may contribute to that factor, IF the guy or the girl who looks at you prefers taller or shorter men or women. Unless of course, you are abnormally tall - eg: 10 foot tall weighing 100 pounds, and has feet that no door can let you through... [wink]

I find the majority of men like tall elegant women, i'm biased but a tall woman is always more strikingly beautiful.

Being tall is the significant physical thing about you - if you weren't tall then it would be some other feature and you could be just as insecure about that. I bet the small dainty women are looking at you and envying your size. I can understand that you feel it makes you stick out - literally. But we all have to deal with something significant and the best thing is to make the most of what we've got. The men hitting on you - have a laugh. Tell them you're 3 foot 6. Don't let it get you down or be a barrier. Good luck.

Seriously though it doesn't really matter, guys probably ask you just to start a conversation (think positive as well) there's one girl at my old college who was about 6ft and she was the hottest girl in school, but again she was shy.

But what I liked about her most was that she was intelligent. So no it isn't unattractive to be tall. besides, would you rather be called shorty or lardo.

One other thing - the longer you live, the more other tall people you will see. I guarantee it. P.S. Do you realize that it wasn't all that long ago that tall males felt out of place in the world?

Lemonpixie agony auntToo each his own really. Men love a variety of women. Being tall is fine, being short is fine... that fact is most women aren't 6 feet tall so people will stare...but not in a bad way. Maybe try making your inner dialouge a little more positive. Instead of thinking to yourself 'i look like a freak, why is everyone staring at me' say 'everyone is staring at me because im unique' The fact is most women probably dislike you because of jealousy and lots of men gawk at you because they want to be with you. Maybe pick up some self motivation books, they can do wonders for soem people. But the most important thing is to know that you cant be perfect to everyone, it's inevitable that some people will not find you attractive, but the same goes for everyone on this planet... but someone and if you were a model obviously lots of people did and do find you attractive. So cheer up lass, and rock that uniqueness that you do possess because some women would kill for it.

Learning2Love agony auntI am so sorry that you feel this way because tall women are quite attractive especially if they stay in shape. It reminds me of the ugly duckling story - what makes you stand out (pardon the pun) is what makes you magnificent! I wish in time that you will see it as a gift because tall guys like me, often have it rough meeting women that we don't have to look down on. About the other people that comment on it they don't know you have a problem with it - although you might subconsciously be sending these signals (with your posture and body language) - and they are commenting from their own insecurities. I can't emphasize enough that you should be proud of your stature! The people that thrive in society are the ones that despite their short comings (sorry) - have accepted themselves as they are. It's going to be a long life,being insecure of the things you can't change (and makes you great!). Walk tall girl! (sorry)
