Sure it's awesome being tall but there's some problems that we have to deal with time and time again.
said: I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this blog. I can relate to so many things it's like you read my mind. I'm a 5'10-5'11 girl. I feel like an awkward giant here in my city. The average height here in like 5'6.
This blog has really helped me feel more confident about my height. Might as well embrace it right?
YES. Embrace le height!
And thanks, hun, for loving the blog! :)
Anonymous said: To put my two cents into this taller/shorter relationships personally i like tall guys. I probably would even if i was short, I'm not incredibly tall only 5'8 (expected to reach 5'9 is when im done growing) but i've always been picked on about my height. I have grown to love it but at the same time i want someone to see me as a small petite girl. But the only way that will happen is if he's mega tall.
…if you weren’t anon I would have done the:
Tall People Hook Up Blog ‘11
stalking following the guy who is the tallest that answered the “How tall are you?” post.
You know what’s interesting? Shorter people would sometimes want to be seen as tall and we sometimes want to be seen as short or petite.
said: I'm a 5'10" girl, and I'm bisexual. The height difference thing doesn't really matter much to me with guys - taller, shorter, same height, it's fine - but I get REALLY intimidated by girls who are taller than I am.
I dated one girl who was taller than I was, and I just couldn't feel comfortable around her. We're on good terms, and that's probably more my issue than anything to do with height, but that's how I am personally.
said: As I said in the reply to the post. I've been with men shorter then myself and it ended up being them with the issue. They seemed to want to be the one 'In control'. Not saying that this is a general thing for everyone but thats just what happened for me. My man, now, is only a handful of inches taller then I am but we work well together. At the end of the day you're going to be with who you work well with. If you make a good team and your partner is shorter then so be it. I get the wanting to feel little and cute compared to your male partner but at the same time I wouldn't allow that to compromise how I felt about someone. However, maybe thats because I am older and a lot more comfortable with who I am. Just my two cents
said: I had a girlfriend that was nearly the same height as me. It was really great because we wore the same pant-size. Before I grew, she was taller than I was. Now she's 5'11" and I'm 6'2", and even though it didn't work out, we're great friends and have some of the finest memories. There is absolutely nothing wrong with odd height differences. In fact, I think it keeps things funny, which is important.
said: My problem is having to get in a line that's arranged shortest to tallest, and never getting a chance to hit the pinata at a birthday party. Or watching the person in front of you break it.
This here post is for you then :)
Anonymous said: So first off I am a 5'10 female. I am taller than my mother and older sister. So I always feel super tall around everyone. And it doesnt help that my best friend is literally 4'9.
So about this whole 'dating a shorter/taller person' I feel more comfortable if my significant other was taller than me so that way I wouldnt have to worry about my height and I could feel comfortable
I understand that you have a preference and the acceptance of others tends to help you feel comfortable with yourself but at the same time you, yourself, will have to embrace and accept your height to be fully comfortable with it.
A significant other, no matter how perfect, beautiful, and good they are to you or even if they tell you how beautiful, perfect and good you are to them, if you’re worried about your height and a bit uncomfortable with it, you’re the only person that can fix that…no one else.
Think of it as, “How can you love someone else if you don’t love yourself?” Same thing in my opinion.
Anonymous said: sure, theres wanting that feeling like you're being protected, but also, i want to feel short, cute, little, small around a guy and i can't feel that way if i'm taller than my guy.
But what if he was short and built like this guy? *points down*
I’m kidding. I understand. It’s what you’re attracted to and it’s what you prefer.

Anonymous said: I think it has to do with the whole image the world has of the man having to be protective of his woman. And a woman wanting to feel protected with a taller guy. I myself am 5'11" and probably couldn't see me dating a guy who was a lot shorter than me because it would probably feel awkward. There's nothing wrong with a tall girl dating a short guy, it's just personal preference.
I don’t know…I believe so :0
Anonymous said: this is my favourite blog... even though i'm only 5'5, i'm the tallest out of my mom's entire side of the family :D
See! I knew I had shorter followers!
I’m glad you love the blog! I really appreciate it!
I can only imagine your mom and her side of the family’s height if you’re the tallest.
said: okay, at 5'8 i'm probably one of your shortest followers but i love this blog so much.
also, i wouldn't mind dating someone who's 5'7 or below, and my cousin's 5'11 and her boyfriend is 5'9 :)
No, you’re not one of my shortest. An anon just told me their height and beat you hahaha. And yes! That’s good. That’s good that’s you don’t mind the height difference of any kind! :)
I appreciate you loving the blog hun!
