Any farmers here tall?

I'm 6'1" and I get a lot of stares from other women. Fitting into clothes can be a problem when they're too short. I dated a guy once who was a manlet and he dropped me after one date because he was scared of me towering over him.

I am nowhere near as tall as you, but I am considered very tall in my country. I absolutely hate it.

>I'm 6'1" and I get a lot of stares from other women.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they were stares of jealousy, anon. I'm 5'3" and I've ALWAYS wanted to be your height, and I'm sure there's plenty of other girls who feel the way I do. Tall women are so beautiful and elegant. I know there must be challenges to being that tall, but please try not to let others make other people let you feel bad about yourself if they stare or are intimidated by you. Own your height because it's badass.

Plus you have a great excuse to look for a 6'5"+ man :')

5"3 (as well) here, I find tall women super attractive. I like being short because it's cute and suits my "kawaii uwu" aesthetic but i think tall women can be just as cute and super pretty!!
The stares are probably jealousy and that guy was insecure (or just not into tall girls,which can be understandable because to each their own preference, but don't think about it too much)

I'm 5'10. I sometimes wish I were shorter so that I could wear heels without feeling like a sasquatch. Also I've never managed to find any men I'm compatible with who were over 5'11.

No. 68812

I'm barely 1.56 m and I hate it, I feel like a dwarf. I hate that when I can't find clothes/shoes my size, I have to buy in the kiddies department. In my job was hard af to make my coworkers take me seriously and it's not uncommon for creepy guys to see me as an easy target. Also if I gain or lose 1 or two kilos it becomes very noticeable, not to mention my clothes would fit me awfully.

I wish I was between 1.75-1.80. Tall women are so graceful and elegant to me, I really envy having long legs and a long neck. Long frames are so beautiful and feminine.

No. 68833

My ex gf was tall as fuck and I loved it and thought it was so hot. But I'm short and happy with it too. 5'2 here but most of it is legs and my figure is pretty nice with exercise. I used to hate being this short like anon here >>68812 but I love it now. I can wear heels without towering over people, I have a huge range of clothing options and my preferred clothing style looks great on my frame/height, and my partner (and every person I've liked earlier) absolutely loved how petite I look compared to them. I love the fact that I still get mistaken for an 18 year old despite being in my late 20s.

No. 68836

I'm 5'10 and I used to hate it. I felt manly and gross. But then when I lost weight I started liking it.
I'm still not a very confident person overall, but now I can tell when girls stare at me it's usually because they're jealous or intimidated. I don't even have to do anything and people just assume I'm more powerful than them or something, that's pretty awesome.
As far as guys, the only ones that really care are the ones that are insecure about their own height. And sometimes if you show those guys that you dgaf they'll stop caring as well.

>Also if I gain or lose 1 or two kilos it becomes very noticeable
I've always been so confused by short people saying this or also "I gain weight so much quicker, if I was tall I could eat without gaining!"? Like, if you're tall your appetite increases accordingly. I used to be self conscious about eating more than my friends until I realized that I'm way taller so /of course/ I'm more hungry, a tall body burns more calories!

It's so weird how convinced short girls seem that if they were taller they would look slimmer.

>Tall women are so graceful and elegant to me

Only if they're underweight. Sure, short normal weight girls might not be elegant, but at least you're cute.
Tall normal weight girls? "Giants/Masculine/Big"

No. 68840

your appetite increases but so does your overall calories needed, so to lose weight taller people can eat more than smaller people. it's not that hard to understand - yes appetite increases but from purely a number perspective tall women have it easier.

No. 68841

>your appetite increases but so does your overall calories needed

Which is why it's equally hard for short/regular/tall people to lose weight.

Like, for example:
Short person A: eats 1200 cals. Regular person B: 1300. Tall person C: 1400.
All these people are going to feel full the same length, and let's assume that those are the cals for them to maintain their weight.

Next: Weight loss
A: 1100 B: 1200 C: 1300 -> They will lose weight while all feeling equally hungry thus having it EQUALLY AS HARD to lose weight.
Sure A could go on to whine about "C can eat so much more while losing weight!! Not fair!!" But that's disregarding that it's much harder for a tall person to sustain 1100 cals than it is for a short person.

Obviously all this is overly simplified, but y'know, energy isn't magic.

I'm 5'10 and i absolutely hate it…

My whole life i've had disadvantages because of it; in kindergarten i was often scolded as the only person out of my group and than later on my teacher came up to me again and apologized, saying she always needs to remind herself that i'm not older than anybody else and therefore don't need to act more mature.

When i was 8 my grandma fell ill and whilst visiting my parents gave me some money to buy ice cream downstairs. On my way a woman stopped me and asked whether i'm a nurse; i had no idea how to react!

When i was 10 my dad walked with his arm around me and some dude yelled something like 'pretty couple' at us…

When i entered middle school on the first day everybody stared and whispered about me and some teacher asked me if i had to repeat class, because i obviously had to be older.

Even now as a young adult i still get some people laughing about how weirdly tall i am, rude man saying that they can't see standing 'behind a man'. Some children (and we all know that they are the most honest) ask whether i'm a boy or a girl.
Try finding a coat that doesn't end midway to your arms! Shortening trousers etc is always easier…

So in conclusion as a child everybody always had higher expectations, thinking that i'm older; if i did well in sports, i got "well it's obvious with your long legs", men always make fun of me and no, just because i'm tall it doesn't mean i'm immedeatly more confident.
All the tall girls in my class were the shy ones and the short girls were the cute anfmd popluar ones… I thought i'd stop, once i'm an adult but it doesn't and don't even get me on my dating options… Yes there might be men saying models are popluar and they are tall, but i'm no model! Most men are shorter than me and even if they are taller it doesn't mean that they don't prefer somebody normal sized.

I really don't get all these short girls wishing they were as tall as me, you don't know what you wish for. I get that being super short is also not ideal but being tall certainly isn't all rosy either, how can you say you want to be abnormaly tall if you've never experienced it? Just because i know that some dudes find short girls cute, i don't say thinks like oh i'd like to be 5 ft!

Being average simply is the best…

No. 68844

I forgot to add something that somebody else already posted before: being tall might be desirable, bur only and really only if you are very slim! Than you can fall in the modelish category, but otherwise even with only a little bit of extra weight you'll simply look gigantic.
Nothing makes you feel more girly, than being bigger in any aspect than a normal dude…

No. 68845

I'm 5'8 so not super tall but kinda tall for a girl. I feel masculine a lot of the time and worry about "taking up too much space" but I'm thin-fit and conventionally attractive so it doesn't impact my life too much. I just wish I could wear heels without being taller than my boyfriend lol. I used to think I'd have no problem dating short guys but a guy at least 4 inches shorter than me hit on me the other day and I think it was an eyeopener that I couldn't. Overall I'd be happy being like 2-3 inches shorter but I obviously can't so whatever. Saged for being blogposty.

No. 68846

I'm 5'10" and skinny. The worst part is that you're more obviously skinny than a normal person, and people talk about it. Restaurant workers will literally gossip about me being 'anorexic' right behind me! I'm just naturally skinny, I do work out a little bit to tone my body though.
Also, there's a lot of jealousy. There's a girl around the same height as me who hates me for no reason and I just found out she's been buying prescription diet pills/appetite suppressants off of some randoms so that she can get skinnier (she weighs more than me, probably 15 pounds, but she's still skinny). It sucks because this isn't the first time a girl has hated me for being tall+skinny and then I find out they're actively trying to lose weight or always wear heels to look taller. I just want to be friends with everyone!! Sorry for the rant, I feel like I have no one IRL to rant about this stuff to.
On the plus side, I'm meeting with the talent scouts from Armani next week. Wish me luck everyone!!

No. 68849

I'm 5'10 too and I don't mind it. Only annoying thing is that trousers and maxi dresses are always too short on me, and that my posture is shot to shit from being self-conscious about my height and slumping over all the time while going through puberty.

Everyone's always telling me to stand up straight but it just doesn't feel natural and like I'm pushing my breasts out for everyone to see.

Back home i was considered average to short height for a girl my age (5'5") but now im studying abroad in uk and all the women are so horribly short! the girls at uni taller than me always turn out to be foreign students and from the 11 women on my shift im the tallest. It's giving me massive flashbacks to my anachan phase and feeling like a meat cow.
That being said i love tall girls, i think they're hot and and also make me feel cozy and safe

No. 68963

5'11" here. I don't really feel like I'm significantly taller than people even though I have 5'0 friends. Sure, I felt awkward about it in my childhood and teen years, but you get over it and embrace it. In fact, I think it's kind of funny/dumb that some presumably 18+ anons in this thread think they're 'manly' or freakish for being 5'8"-5'10", I don't even consider that really tall tbh (since you can still find loads of shoes in your sizes lol) but I'm also not actively keeping track of how tall I am compared to my peers. You can still have a feminine style and be tall, don't be so insecure, guys. As an "above average height" person I definitely never notice when people are shorter than me, so.

My boyfriend is the exact same height as me which is also cool.

I think my only issues with being tall are:
- Very limited shoe selection past size 11 (my feet seem to have recently grown so now I only fit in 12, aside from sandals). Most of the shoes I have ever wanted because they would have been affordable & frequently worn only go up to like, size 9 or 10
- Every store has a petites section, but no tall section (irl, not online)
- Literally only Levi's carries pants with the fucking length measurements on them for women. I have never seen any other women's brand do this in irl stores. All of my jeans have come from Levi's, Gap, or Banana Republic Tall sections for this reason
- All of the above is harder to find and more expensive than petite/average clothes
- Can't buy skirts, pants, dresses from stores like Forever 21 / H&M / fast fashion etc because they're comically too short

I'm 5'2 and absolutely hate it. I wouldn't mind being 6ft at all tbh, and it has nothing to do with which would be more desirable to men or whatever, i couldn't care less about that. More to do with vulnerability. No matter what you do, being small will always make you physically weaker than most people unless you carry a gun. And I'm really not into the whole 'dainty flower that needs to be protected' thing that some people may glamorize with being a short female. If I were taller then I would be generally way more confident.

this is why I only prefer tall guys. in the hopes that if i have girls, they'll turn out at least a few inches taller than me and have one less problem.

>some people may glamorize with being a short female
and you are doing exactly the same with tall ones…

You're only 5ft5 which is perfectly normal all over the world, but it already triggers you. Yet you go on and say that being with tall women makes you feel safe and comfy. Just imagine how a girl of taller height might feel in the same situation. Maybe tall women also sometimes would like to feel 'comfy and safe'…?

Nah scandinavia isn't this tall people paradise, the height of girls vary a lot here, from super short to extremely tall. Most girls are around 5'4-5'7 though. Guys here really care about being taller than their girlfriends, so most prefer short girls here.

I'm 5'8" and my height was always my first concern. I used to measure myself everyday and google "how to be shorter" for few days straight. I also got a lot of shit from the age of 7 to 12 because of my height, boys bullied me to the point headmaster had to stop them. I was physically hurt because of them many times. So I developed obsession with my height, I hated myself for that. The fact that every nice guy I knew was into very short girls didn't really help either.

That would be true if all the accessible calories are from minimally processed, non-caloric dense food. But so much of the average western diet is comprised of empty calories the "appetite" aspect no longer applies. A 300cal bottle of soda would leave both a tall and a short person equally satisfied (which is to say not much) but the shorter a person is, the less likely that they have any room for such a fuck up.

But western meals and snacks are geared towards taller people.
If you're a short woman, it's really hard to eat out without hitting like 70% of your daily calories in one meal. Not to mention as >>70368 said, it's very easy to overeat on empty calories as a short woman without realising you're doing so.

I'm short but also a long torso/very short legs girl. It sucks, but it really helped to figure out what was up and why my legs looked so stubby no matter how skinny my torso got.

Skirts and dresses that hit above the knee are key, probably why they're so popular in Japan and Korea - East Asians tend to have long torso proportions but I wish I could find a way to make skinny jeans look flattering.

Do you find that you "carry your weight better" than other girls your height? Like looking on MBG, most of the other girls my height/weight have some stomach pudge while I have none, and I'm wondering if it's because of my proportions.

What part do you disagree with? Calorically dense (but nutritionally empty) food is much more easily available now, and much more a part of the average persons diet.

Well, the average person is much taller than a short woman (whereas a tall woman is pretty average height unless they're REALLY tall), is all I meant.
So the "average" portion is much too much, and it's hard to fit like a doughnut or cookie into your daily calorie budget because it's like 40% of what you should eat for the whole day.

I never mention calorie counts to other people unless they do first, because some people get weird about caring at all about calories, because counting calories = ED in their minds.

Also, I run regularly, which helps bring my TDEE up by like 300 per day, which is easier. But I like the running, the calorie burning is just an added bonus. Would recommend finding a physical activity you enjoy if you want to up your TDEE (+ a whole load of other benefits).

When I see a man with a significantly taller person (of either gender), I get weirdly turned on. I'm not tall myself so if I wanted to make that kink a reality I'd have to date a tiny manlet or a fucking child. What is my deal? Also post more pics of short men with taller people pls.

this makes me want to kms even though I'm only 5'9 in a country where it's not super uncommon.

Luckily losing weight makes it more bearable. Why can't I be cute and short?

I get the insecurity, I've been there myself, (175cm / 5'9 here). but does it really matter if most guys are shorter than you or your height? I personally don't want the average guy, or 'most guys'.

You can be cute and you can be sexy, it has nothing to do with height (look at models)! If any man makes you feel insecure about your height then you need to leave him for a better guy. And if any short woman talks shit and she is your friend, then you need to get a new friend.

this makes me so sad, I really hope that all you women who are insecure manage to deal with that and feel positive about yourself.

Yeah, but at least we don't feel the need to make an entire thread dedicated to our height.

No. 70781

It's great that you're so confident about your height, so could you not barge into a thread, specifically about us, with *~your issues~*? Or are you not THAT confident that you still feel the fucking need to make even this about yourself?

No. 70782

I've pointed this out before; it's as if they completely ignore all those posts about tall girls having sometimes really serious problems, just to tell us how awfull it is how everyone always finds them smol and adorable… Nothing can every compare to being ridicouled and being called a man and monstrous when you're just a young insecure girl; you'll never understand how that makes you feel

Saged for samefag and blogpost, but i had to add this: when i was just 10 yo i changed schools and this is the first thing my new teacher said to my mother: oh, she'll never get a boyfriend, she's way too tall!
Stuff like that really destroy all your confidence… and the worst thing is, i really never dated anyone.

When you are of average height, the vast majority of men is taller and therefore - in theory - dateable. If you are taller than the average men, your dating pool becomes already very small, and just because a guy is taller doesn't immediately mean he also likes tall girls; and on't get me started and well you could date shorter boys! I don't need a daily reminder of how tall i really am and i also don't need something to be made fun of additionally

Actually, I just happened to be scrolling down and saw your post insulting short women. You made a crass remark about short women, but don't expect any short women to respond? GTFO, but remember to duck so you don't hit your head on the frame of the door.

Let's make a thread for short women and than see how they like it when tall girls are non-stop posting how nice it must be to be short and small and feminine… Judging by how many are posting here, they're in desperate need of one


Why do i have a hard time believing you're actually tall…?

But i guess good for you that you don't have a problem with it, so can you please fuck of??? It would be the same if i went to the vent thread and said "get over it"…

Just dropping in to say I (5'3) wouldn't give a shit and could totally see why some people would have the "grass is always greener on the other side" perspective. You sound very, very, very triggered and perhaps you should take some time to calm down. Nobody is trying to make you feel bad on purpose, and even if they were, lolcow isn't your safe space anyway.

No. 70855

Tall girls have the benefit of actually have slender, beautiful legs. Womanlets like us just end up looking like stocky dwarves. The sort of men who think we're hot are just unacquainted with how stockily proportioned we are when we take our clothes off.

No. 70865

Actually it really depends on your build. You might just have a longer waist than legs.

I saw a girl on the subway once that was a bit taller than me (i am guessins around 177cm) and she was like mostly torso. Also, not all tall girls are models with perfect thigh gaps. anon be tripping

I used to be really insecure about my height in middle school, but now don't care about it anymore.
Happy because in the recent months I dropped from 71kg to 66.5kg and going down, so look more petite than before.
Guess it is because of the fact, that with time guys in class got taller, so I am not the tallest in the group.
I am also into girls so don't really care if I am taller than some guys.

I was suffering because of my tall height for my entire life (getting bullied, developed an eating disorder to look smaller and now as an adult still getting aggressive remarks by both genders for it) and that truly has rid me of all my confidence; what should i do? Height is truly the only thing one can't change…

No. 70914

Girl, other girls bashing your height are only jealous bitches and men that bully tall girls feel threatened because they are fucking pussies. They bully you because they sense your insecurity and take advantage of that to compensate their shitty existence.

This, being tall is amazing if you're a lesbian because I don't think I've ever met one that isn't into taller girls. I'm average height but I always wear heels just for that reason. I used to think I was gonna be really tall because when I was younger I was the tallest in my class but I must have just hit my growth spurt early since I stopped growing at all after that.

I think some girls just get insecure about their height because it brings attention they don't have control over, like giant boobs.

There are girls and guys that think the girl has to be shorter than the guy, but there are some that think it's cute to have a taller g/f, because it makes them look like they are dating a model or something.

Has anyone else ever had to deal with insecure manlets in relationships? I'm about 5'7" so I'm above average, but I don't really consider myself to be too tall. Around a year ago I was interested in this guy who was pretty cute and smart but he had an obvious inferority complex because of his height. Before I began to like him I noticed that he would occasionally make callous jokes about tall people, and once when I mentioned my height he snidely questioned if I "was one of the few tall people who shouldn't be culled."
Well fast forward a couple of months after that, we developed crushes on each other, and the topic of height eventually came up again.
I'm assuming he had forgotten because he asked me how tall I was when we were in a call together, then he started acting very skittish when I answered him and asked him what his height was. He timidly told me that he was 5'5" and then later on he lamented about how everyone must hate him because he's short. All the while I kept reminding him that I didn't care about his height, but he disregarded that.

I'm 5'7" and the moment I quit dating was when a 6ft guy told me he doesn't want to be "double the size of someone" as if I was TOO SMALL. Wtf

Also surprised to see girls who are 5'5 in here. I think 5'10 and up is tall for a girl. 5'5-5'10 just means less chance of kidnapping and more fun at concerts/crowd events

No. 71501

177cm/5'10" here
Any other tall girls here who became "aware" of their tallness at a late age? I didn't think anything about it until I started watching my weight more and calculating bmi.
Afterwards I realised this caused a lot of funny situations:
>comparing weight with short friends, always feeling fat even though i actually was the same as them
>short friend borrowing T-shirts of our male friend to sleep in, me wanting to do that too and being frustrated that it didn't cover my ass completely
>not understanding why tights, dresses and skirts were so often too short for me

Anyways I've often wished i was cute and smoll….when I'm with short girl friends I feel like a giant who's about to stomp them flat. I guess I've kind of accepted it now.

Ah right, it's also the cause of walking hunched, trying really hard to get that out of my system.

My mom and I were in Egypt once and all the women were staring at us because we were way taller than them, my mom isn't even that tall compared to me.

No. 71502

I've dated some manlets and our height difference was actually never mentioned, we didn't think twice of it so I guess I was always lucky.

My husband and I are the same height but he loves the rare occassion I wear heels because it makes me look like model standing next to him I guess? (just the height difference, not saying that I look like a beautiful model)

No. 71504

it's true though. when my tiny friend, who normally has a really nice figure, was pregnant, she looked like an Amerifat whale but she did lose the weight really really fast after the baby was out.

Also my bf and I eat almost twice as much as our much shorter friends but they're just full really fast and we're not.

>waaaah waaahhh we have it so tough

No. 71510

I did become aware of it very early, but i'm quite sure that being this tall and constantly comparing myself with shorter and lighter friends is the cause of my eating disorder… being as thin as possible seemed the only way to become 'smaller'

No. 71512

i vaguely have this issue. i'm 175 and into jfashion and always feel fat when i can't fit into japanese size M. it's really fucked with my perception of self. i like being tall but sometimes i feel like being short would be easier…

No. 71534

I hate how there are so many short girls bragging about being a size S or XS, like bitch that doesn't make you thin, it's just natural for your height!
Even when i go shopping with my friends there have been instances there one of them held up a shirt in large and said ugh who can wear that?! I need to, if i don't want my ass to be showing…

No. 71538

Because of vanity sizing in my country I still wear S as a tall girl and I'm normal weight. It's really annoying to find the right thing sometimes because S is often too short.

I love being tall and love wearing high heels to make me 6'1" or more.
It's great being tall and slim.
People give you more respect for being tall, they see you as being more dominant. Definitely an advantage and should use it to work in your favour.
Walk your height with pride.

I never wore 6 inch high heels before until 2017. It's really fun but I don't know how smaller girls walk in them so easily? How do they not fall over every few minutes? Even a 3.5 inch heel is perilous. Please advise.

I'm only 5'9", but I'm really slim and lanky so it looks like I'm taller. I hate being tall because pants are never long enough and skirts/dresses always show my ass. The cons of having long legs and a short torso.

Old post but yes!! I've had people ask my friends if I have an ED and need help. When I was in school, the lunch ladies would give me extra servings too because of it.

To all other thin tall girls, where do you guys buy your jeans? I've tried tall stores, but they're always too big at the waist
