department -- BUT STILL.)Also -- srsly, this is an EVERYwoman problem.No matter how tall or short you are, and no matter what yr body type is... there will be lots and lots and LOTS of clothes that you just can't wear, and/or can't find in sizes/styles that will fit you.I honestly don't think I'm worse off than any other woman in this regard. It's better for some things, worse for others. (Not to mention, being on the extremes of the sizing scale -- especially for shoes -- means HUGE discounts on designer brands. I've gotten countless pairs of CL's, Jimmy Choo's, Gucci shoes, etc. at 75-90% off retail, because they go to outlet, and then go on sale **at the outlet**. And when it comes to sneakers, I can always just buy men's styles if I can't find my size in women's.)__Problem-that-isn't-actually-a-problem no. 3:"Everyone stares at me all the time"ATTENNNNNTIONNNNNN <3 <3 #bringit__Srsly, I absolutely LOVE being my height. So much that I wear heels on the regular -- in
How tall are you?
fact **most** of the time, unless I'm at the gym. (I have narrow hips and essentially the opposite of "thigh gap" -- to such an extent that wearing heels actually takes stress OFF my knees. Suck it, all you fertility goddesses. ahah.)At my age I don't rlly do non-platform heels anymore, so, this means **platform** heels. Which make me just a few inches shy of 7 foot. Fuck yeah.__And THE SEX, oh fuck yessssssssI wrote about this here:www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q2140661-sex-with-a-shorter-guy__And I wrote a few more thoughts about my height -- in my usual irrepressibly positive way:www.girlsaskguys.com/.../a29579-20-thoughts-of-a-freakishly-tall-girl-yeah-that-s-me#mmhmm __On a more somber note --My life expectancy is shorter than that of my shorter friends. Like, a LOT shorter. I'll probably die 10-15 years earlier than if I were 5'0"-5'3".The same is true of men, too -- Tall height is the single biggest correlative of shorter life expectancy.Cancer risk is
almost 2x, for ALL types of cancer for BOTH sexes (look it up if you don't believe me), and even greater for female breast cancer. Also, given how high yr heart has to pump that blood, strokes and heart attacks become likely sooner, too -- that's another reason why life expectancy is shorter.So... if you WANT to live for a rlly rlly long time, then, being tall sucks. Sucks a lot.Fortunately for me, I just don't give the first, middle or last fuck about living a long life. See, when you talk about "shorter life expectancy", you're not taking away the GOOD years! You're taking away the shitty, declining, everything's going south (in terms of literal skin/body parts and figurative health) years. You can have those years, I don't want 'em.Yep.I think I'm the perfect height. And anyone who disagrees is just wrong. Srry, people who disagree. You're wrong. <3
"How tall are you?"When I first get out of bed, I'm almost 6'2". By the time I'm going to sleep again, I'm closer to 6'1" and a half.(We all lose a little bit of height as we go through the day with our spinal columns upright -- but, my "days" are longer than everyone else's, so, the difference is more pronounced for me.)
Why do we get shorter as the day goes on? Because gravity.Why are my "days" longer? Ahha long story short, I only sleep 3 times during the average week, rather than 7. I'm typically awake for 40-45 hours, and then I sleep for 11-15 hours... give or take.To say the least, this is... not a schedule that the average person would do well on. But, there's a VERY long history of incredibly severe sleep disorders behind that. (I wrote a thread about it on this site, a while back; I could go dig that up if you're sufficiently interested.)
Not all guys wouldn't date a girl taller than them, tall girls means long sexy legs lol
Scroll Down to Read Other Opinions
There are guys prefer tall girls too, and you're not very tall lol
I am, compared to the other girls where I live. They're so smol
But it's good, tall girl = long sexy legs lol
Talking of long sexy legs, I forgot to mention that people ALWAYS say something when I wear heels, like "you're already tall why would you wear heels"
Don't listen to them and do what you want, my female friend is 6'1 and sometime she wears heels lol
I have the jeans problem too... Where do you buy jeans online? I usually do old navy's tall, but they only have so many styles 😒
New Look and Asos both have a Tall collection, and Long Tall Sally only sells clothes for tall women 😊
Thanks!! I'll have to check those out!
You're not very tall, my female friend is 6'2 and sometimes she wears heels lol
Just imagine lol
"You awkwardly notice how your friend's fathers are your height."Thank you! I thought I was the only one who did that 😂😂
I'm 5'6"/5'7", but take into account that I'm from a 2nd world country, where the average female height is about 5'3".
How old are you?
I am 17
Would you date a guy shorter than you?
Depends on different factors and how much shorter he was then me. I can be quite insecure and standing next to a man of 5'8 makes me feel like a giant, yet i wouldn't dismiss it entirely. The answer is probably, but also probably over 5'10. Id say that is my limit
however that's due to my insecurities. I do find shorter men attractive, its the way i perceive myself.
Yes I understand you, but what if he had muscles and good body but he's 5'8?
maybe. As i have said its not I would find him unattractive, I would feel awkward myself. But it is not something I would completely dismiss. would depend on many factors
You're not very tall it's okay 😂
Be specific. "girls over 5'7"
Yeah but when I was readying your problems I thought you're 6ft or more lol
Nope, just 5'8
Yes but you're still tall don't worry lol
Yes, all those super cute sundresses turn into mini dresses. And who wants a sundress that's a mini dress?
@Gangybail I know right? 🙁🙄 Really sucks!
Are most girls shorter than you In general?
And a half
Are you the tallest woman in the world? lol
That would be Sandy at 7'5"
Brushing 6', so not too tall but tall enough
Have you ever date short guy?
Oh and that mirror pic has happened to me 😒
I'm sort of dating a guy who is 5'6" right now...
Oh cool 😂
Shorter guys aren't bad too lol
I know but all my closest male friends are shorter than me so I know are shorter guys synonymously with being a friend. I hate you life.
You wouldn't date short guy?
Unfortunately no. Every time I have met a guy shorter than me I have been unable to think of them as more than a friend. It's like a permanent friend zone. It actually does suck though.
You should try to date one then judged
One day... maybe
Seems like it to me. cx
These are just questions 😂
5'7 and I'm still a teenager so I'm a still growing
No sorry 😂
