Most Helpful Girl
For a few reasons. Growing up, it's hard for us to not feel incredibly awkward and uncoordinated at some points, and that feeling can very well stick till we're through that awkward phase. I always heard people saying that guys will never date someone taller because it will make them feel emasculated, they want a small girl they can pick up or whatever. That didn't help with me hating my height (5'10"), wishing I could be even a tiny bit smaller.
I only embraced my height somewhat recently, about a year or so ago. Ironically enough, shortly after I started dating my boyfriend, who's a bit shorter and assured me he loves dating girls who are taller. (Legs for days. :P )0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
