i am 6 feet tall and 16. I always thought it was okay...i have great legs! but this guy that I've been flirting with, told me a few months ago that he is gonna call me buddy because I am taller than him (he is taller than me by an inch) and today we were joking around it was like this
him: someone should kill that spider over there I feel unsafe that it is alive (he was trying to be funny)
me: I feel unsafe that your alive! (again, joking)
him: I feel unsafe that you are as tall as me.
me: I'm shorter than you!
him: are you the tallest girl in the school?
me:no...theres jane (fake name used)
him: I mean other than her
me: then yes.
no one has talked about my height since like junior high when then guys threw sticks at me and called me tree. so does he think its really unattractive that I'm tall and trying to tell me? or what? I didn't think it was a bad thing...
Ok. First of all. I LOL'd so hard when you said that your school buddies called you "tree". thats so mean.. but in retrospect, hilarious XD
Secondly, you look f***ing gorgeous... for your age. I don't know if someones gonna call the cops on me but physically, there is nothing wrong with you. Your attractiveness is off the scale through the roof! (pun unintended) the fact that you are a tall girl just means you gotta find a guy whos as tall as you or taller, cuz... well you never really see a tall girl going out with a shorter man. Just doesn't work out. Laws of physics are involved here.
For me, I think tall girls are soo hot. maybe it is because I am shorter and its something I know I can't have... but when I see a beautiful one its all butterflies and rainbows. I'm sure the guy you've been flirting with finds you attractive because if he doesnt, he is obviously blind or retarded.
Well, I'm not exactly sure what he makes of you. He might just be uneasy or self-conscious because in general, it's ingrained in men that a guy has to be taller and stronger and all that. I don't necessarily agree with that, but I'm in the minority.
But, in my opinion tall women are very attractive. You are a rare one(at least in my experience), so...enjoy your uniqueness. Many guys like tall women so, don't let it get ya down. I'm sorry that this friend of yours seems uneasy with it, but maybe he'll come around. :)
He might just feel a little insecure as to how others might view him if he were to date you. I don't know for sure but that is what I am thinking.
Tall women are attractive. I personally have always been attracted to taller women, though not necessarily taller than myself (5'11"). Girls taller than I tend to be rare, so I would enjoy your height and know that there are a lot of guys who do like tall girls. Some however, maybe like your friend, might be putt off a little (or a lot) by taller women, due to insecurities or feeling the need to be the "dominant" one. Just keep this in mind. You might just ask him why he dislikes taller girls.
But to answer your question, no, tall girls are not unattractive. Quite the opposite. :)
There are some guys who find being tall unattractive, yes. But there are as many who like it as there are who don't, and even the ones who don't like it I'm fairly certain wouldn't call it a "deal breaker".
I find the words "you" and "unattractive" in the same sentence to be quite difficult. If this guy is timid cause you're tall then that's his beef. I don't think you'll have any trouble finding someone else. Heck I'm 5'10" ya date guys two inches shorter than you? lol. .
suppose a guy puts up a question: "i am 5ft tall. I always thought I was okay but this girl that I've been flirting with, told me a few months ago that she is gonna call me buddy because I am shorter than her. Does she find me unnattractive?"
It's the same question. If you can answer that question, you can answer your own too.
Being tall is not unattractive at all. The only thing it can be (to the majority of guys, including me) is threatening. I'm 6'1" and I could never imagine dating a girl taller than me. This may sound anti-women, but having the girl taller than the guy is like castrating the guy (in my opinion). I won't lie, I want to be the taller one, to feel dominant (like many other guys). It's just a male ego thing. We can't control it.
im 6ft tall aswell, and I went out with a girl that was the same height as me, it was great :) he obviously has a problem with your height, its quite normal. the guy is normaly suppose to be taller then the girl, that's how it is in most relationships. but if you want a boyfriend you should find someone that like you for who you are not your apperance. =)
No, it isn't. In fact, in most cases, it's the opposite. I'm only about average height, yet the idea of going out with someone the same size/an eensy bit taller is thought of. Be proud of your height and flaunt it in a good way! :)
of course not! he was just joking around, and when he couldn't find any other negative qualities about you from looking at you, he decided to use your height. trust me. I'm 5'1" its MUCH MUCH worse for me. cause at least he's taller than you. and not to be creepy or anything, but your picture doesn't exactly depict unattractiveness.
I know a lot of guys who love tall girls. Hell, a few of my ex-boyfriends let me know that they liked it when I was a bit taller (like in heels). And models are pretty tall, so there must be some aesthetic benefit. I wouldn't worry about it. Yeah, a guy much shorter than you might not like it, but I think those taller than you would find it a plus.
i'm not 6 feet (im 5"8') but I have always liked being tall, guys like tall girls because of their long legs, but if the guy isn't at least 3 inches taller than you they might feel a little over powered... but hey tall guys are extremely attractive XD
be proud of your height, not a lot of people have it, plus I think I should officially welcome you to the word of girls who would make great models haha :)
lmao I'm 5 11ish and I was the tallest person in my school last year. . . I got called ostrich (long neck) giraff and tree (post doesn't count because that's my bball position) stand tall and be proud of it! I wouldn't trade my height for anything! and I laugh at the midgets. . . arm rests lol (oh and I'm 15) I've had my shorter friends ask me to look for some1 in a crowd for them because I was the only one that was tall enough to see above other people! and I'm usually the leader when my parents and I are in a huge crown (like a NASCAR race) because I can see everything! ^^ yay me! and little kids would ask for piggy back rides from me at my old school. . . which I found absolutely hilarious! they asked me how the weather was up there and I asked how it was down there. . . I'm the one who retrieves little kids' balloons when they let go and it rises to the ceiling. . . I'm the gentle giant. . . ^^
I know what you talk. I was over 6' tall at 16. Now I'm 6'5". My biggest problem at your age was to found teenage clothes. But now I'm a women, I'm very proud of my height and I deal with. You know why ? I CAN'T CHANGE IT. So the guys must understand that. You can't change that. 99% of the guys on that planet love tall girl, love our long legs. If that guys don't accept to be shorter than you, you will have to found a 6'3" guys, because the day you will go out and wear you sexy stiletto shoes, you will be at least 6'2" maybe 3. Never forget theses 2 thinks, guys love tall women, tall women are sexy and also you can change nothing, you and he have to deal with your sexy height. Kiss Gina
heyy I'm 5'10" and I'm super proud! altho I'm the tallest in my class and I hardly find other tall girls ... I'm feelin kool and unique... and I must confess that a lot of times I feel a bit inferior and I might want to be few inches shorter , but anyways they just go away and I feel ok again ... the only diasdvantage is that we might feel a bit unconfortable sometimes , like wearing heels and stuff ..anyways enjoy!
Being tall is a great thing! I'm on the short side and have been mocked for it. First of all, guys a jerk for making fun of your height! Be confident and proud of your height! I'd rather be your 6 ft than my 5'3
I'm 5'9 and I always hated being tall in middle and high school... but now that I'm in college I love it. guys like tall girls (we have long legs) be proud of your height ok!
You look like an Eastern European model. He does not think you're unattractive. He might be insecure about HIS height if anything.
