I am tall and athletic (5'8). The thing is that before people even get to know me, a lot of them assume that I'm athletic and they tell me it's because of my height. So I'm wondering how exactly does height indicate that a person is athletic?
really? you don't see that? who plays in the nba? almost exclusively tall people. who plays in the nfl? a few short guys, but the vast majority are tall. volleyball? tennis? I mean there is generally a pretty solid correlation...
maybe just experience. yeah. known a lot of tall girls. most, actually all I remember were athletic. this is not a bad thing. I thought they were hot being athletic. Not sure otherwise why we make that connection.
I'm the same hight as you, and nobody thinks I'm anywhere near athletic. I think it has more to do with body build, and personal style. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you cause you are athletic, and athletic girls are HOT! So embrace yourself:)
