50 Things Tall Girls Say

I don't think I've ever known what it means to be average height. I was always above height no matter what age I was growing up and as an adult, at 5'9, I will forever remain above average or tall. I'd say I'm pretty unique considering that in the US, only about 5% of the population of women are 5'9 or taller. (Avg. height for women in the US is 5'4 and for men 5'10). To me, I love it. There are perks to being tall like never having to wait for someone else to get something down for you, or being able to see over a crowd, or gaining 10 lbs and not having people immediately notice it, or getting from place to place a lot faster because you have a longer stride. As a tall person, and more specifically a tall girl, there are some things that you find yourself saying a lot.

  • I like tall girls, but they definitely need no heels, not because they are tall, but because I really hate heels.

  • I never really thought of 5'9 as being that tall. I mean statistically yeah I get that it is but really I don't like at 5'9 women and think wow she is so tall!

    • It's usually only guys that think this way because to you, if you are a man that is average height or taller, any woman would most likely be shorter than you by comparison, but contrast that with being a woman where every woman you know is practically 5-6 inches shorter than you. Trust me, you become aware early on in life that you aren't the average especially when you go to buy clothing to take pictures with friends. No one in my life has ever called me short or average height, male or female.

  • with more than 2 meters in height (around 6'9") i can relate :p

  • There is nothing bad in being tall in itself, the main problem for an tall girl is to find an taller guy, because smaller guy would look unmanly and ridiculous next to an tall girl. :)

    • you've basically contradicted yourself... you say there is nothing wrong with being tall, but then two seconds later... as long as a tall girl only dates a taller guy.

    • Show All
    • I'm a tall girl, in heels I'm 6'1... and yes I wear heels. I have dated guys shorter than me who had no problems with it. It is not unmanly for a guy to date a taller girl. It is pathetic that a guy would be so concerned with height that he would let that get in the way of a potentially wonderful relationship especially if the girl isn't concerned at all. There are far too many people in this world worried about what everybody else is thinking so much so that they don't just live their lives and find happiness where they want to find it. Feel however way you want about that, but that is my truth.

    • Height incompatibility is an big thing, what really pathetic is how small and weak an guy looks when he stand close to an girl that is bigger then him. Most girls are concerned with height even more then guys, and rightfully so, why should they date a man that looking less manly then they are, men are known for being the stronger sex, not for being small. It's sound like that you have lose hope in finding an taller guy, so out of desperation you are willing to date an men with the size of a women, or even smaller, anyway that what I believe, and by the way, you better off without heels with that height. :)



  • Tall gals rock. For some reason I seem to notice them checkin me out (or maybe it's my wishful thinking) more than my height or shorter. I'm 5'4" by the way and interested in a gal that's 5'6" or so in flats.

  • You are 5" taller than the average woman, at 6'3" I'm five inches taller than the average man. It's not that tall, everywhere I go I see guys as tall as me or taller.

    There are probably short guys around here somewhere too, maybe under the furniture or something.
