I'm 5'8, not really happy about it. If I were shorter I could become underweight and be cute, but as it is I'm underweight now and just sort of look like a lanky man.
It pisses me off so much to see short fat girls. What a waste.
Tall "fat" girl here, I'm 1.78m/5'10
Cons:>being scolded for "not behaving my age", thinking I'm a lot older than I actually was, while giving my same-aged friends a pass>getting asked if I'm a nurse at 8>being mistaken for a teacher in elementary school>being mistaken for being my Dad's wife at 10>old men making creepy comments thinking I'm 16-18>teacher telling my mother I'll never get a man when I was just a 5th grader>teacher thinking I repeated class, since I have to be older>unrealistically high expectations in sports>started developing an ED at 13 to feel smaller>not participating in prom dance since too tall for any boy
In conclusion: many of my childhood memories revolve around negative experiences because of my height.
Dating is a problem, since even though I'm living in a rather tall country I'm still a bit taller than the average guy, meaning my dating pool is small. And just because somebody happens to be my height or taller doesn't mean he also wants a tall gf. Short guys have often treated me like shit, e.g. "Why are you so tall?!" instead of "Hi, my name's…"
Since a year ago or so I started liking my height. Like I mentioned before I suffered of an ED and have a generally low self esteem. Sometimes I feel so anxious and self conscious that I'm drenched in sweat while walking through the streets and in situations like that it helps me to tell myself that I'm at least physically "superior", that nobody of these short people could even hurt me, blah blah. Also, looking around and seeing tons of short girls makes me think that actually I wouldn't want to to look like that.
Same when I walk around alone at night, I never need to fear somebody just grabbing me.
After starving myself i gained a lot of weight back, but i guess my tall height helps me to not look completely out of shape.
Anyways, loosing weight is definitely one of my main goals (also because I always dreamed of being a model…)
Unforunatly i don't have gazelle legs like many other tall girls, mine aren't overly long and my calves are strangely bulky. Becaue of that getting long enough pants isn't that difficult, but shirts, dresses, jackets…
5'5" here, which I think is a good middle ground height for women in most places, however I recently moved to UK for uni and it's like I'm a giantess here, even good half of men are shorter than me. It would be fine if I had normal self esteem I guess but I don't.
It reminds me of elementary school when I was the first of my class to start developing and essentially looked the same as I do now from ages 9 onward while the rest of my classmates were puny prepubescent twigs for another 5-6 years. Which came with most of the cons >>81537
That being said, I wouldn't like to be any shorter as short girls tend to have worse proportions and I am quite happy with mine.
Yes, because having the first comment out of someone's mouth be about your abnormal height is "treating us like people". Tall women get compared to giants/monsters/men/basketball players/amazons. Because being held to a much higher standard than kids your age or EVEN KIDS WHO ARE OLDER THAN YOU simply for being tall is so much better than being called "cute",right?
I'm sorry but I'd rather be referred to as "cute" or "adorable",at least those have positive connotations.
Men regard tall women as ONS material,
they regard short women as marriage material.
Because one experience outweighs the study of 22,000 people?
Anyways, short women like >>81541
>>81533 need to accept that tall women's lives tend suck just as much.
But since you were so coddled as a kid you just can't seem to accept that other people have problems too I guess, 's fine.
your study is shite anyway and doesn't support what you're saying.
Height obviously is relative. There's almost a foot between me and my boyfriend. The outliers are usually those at the extreme ends of the scale, like someone 5'1 dating someone 6'6. Scale to height anon. Are tall girls really upset a small bloke might not potentially want to marry them? Go after one of the tall hotties.
>>81538>5'5, UK, giantess
Huh? You're only 1 inch taller than the average height in the UK (which is also the same in my country), so I'm sorry to say this, but I highly doubt you were treated the same as I was…>>81541>idk why tall women seem to think short girls aren't sexualized as kids???
I assume your anger was directed at my comment >old men making creepy comments thinking I'm 16-18
Obviously I agree that kids of all height sadly do happen to be sexualized, but if it happens to a short or normal looking kid this person is a pedo. What I meant was that men thought I'm so much older that it's okay to hit on me:>Anon, you're cute, do you have a bf?>No, I'm too young for that…>Huh, why? How old are you?>I'm 10.>Oh shit, I'm so sorry, i really thought you're over 18!>>81545>tall since early childhood and i think people treated me as older and tougher than i was because of it. i think people didn't realize what a sensitive kid i was and expected me to just handle things maturely.> i always thought feeling dainty,feminine,and protected just wasn't my thing but no one has ever treated me that way until my bf so maybe I just missed out.
I can relate to that, I always tried to act tougher than I actually was simply because I feel like this is what people expect me to be. I never really had any feminine hobbies, don't allow myself to act "weak" or find things cute, because i guess it would look really awkward if a girl as tall as me would e.g. act all scared while watching a horror movie or if there's a spider, etc.
Reading posts by short girls who're seething with jealousy like your's makes me feel better about being tall lol, thank you.
But seriously anon, contain your hateboner for tall chicks.
>short women are also infantilized for their entire adult life. >Tall women have the option of being treated like real people. Who the fuck wants to be "cute" or "adorable" as an adult?
Maybe you'd be taken more seriously if you actually acted like an adult? Hysterial screeching usually doesn't exactly say "Hey, I'm a mature adult, respect me"…
>>81565>You guys must’ve had some shit experiences as a child. But that’s over now, you’re adults. Obsessing over your height makes you look childish and insecure.
That's like telling somebody who was bullied to just get over it…
You were just lucky, but many tall girls get bullied as children and/or teens. Just because it's suddenly seen as something desireable once you hit your 20s, doesn't mean you can magically shake off all these years of people telling you that and treating you like you're basically a freak of nature…
And let's be real, being tall is only seen as something positive on a young, attractive and thin women; if you're average weight it's immediately no longer cute.
>>81567>That's like telling somebody who was bullied to just get over it…
If you’re holding on to be being bullied when you were a child as an adult, I definitely would tell you to get over it. Move on with your life. >being tall is only seen as something positive on a young, attractive and thin women
Kek, yeah? And that’s same for being short or being average. Being young and attractive affect you far more than height. You can be attractive and tall or attractive and short, or plain and tall or plain and short. The thing that is going to matter is the first thing, not the second. Ugly short girls don’t have an easier life than ugly tall girls. Pretty short girls aren’t missing out on how pretty tall girls are treated.
What i was trying to say is, that only if you look model-tier and are also as thin, people are fine with you being tall. As soon as you're normal weight, you'll be called manish or amazonian.
However if you're of normal or short height, nobody will expect you to be that skinny and you'll still appear feminine and somewhat attractive at an average BMI.
>If you’re holding on to be being bullied when you were a child as an adult, I definitely would tell you to get over it. Move on with your life.
It's not that easy, you can't just forget all that. And it's not like getting snide comments a la "i can't see because of the man in fornt of me teehee" at a concert or people asking you whether you really like being that tall (as if that's something i have any control over…) stop once you've hit certain age.
>>81574>you'll be called manish or amazonian.
Again, I’m 5’11 and this has never happened.> "i can't see because of the man in fornt of me teehee" at a concert or people asking you whether you really like being that tall
Again, nope. Where do you live where people are so shitty? Where I live no one would be a dick like that.
Anon you're being a dick. Just because it didn't happen to you, doesn't mean others were that lucky.
I pretty much spent my entire youth trying to get over an ED solely caused by my wish to be smaller, so many people treated me and other anons like shit, hell there are even tall girls out there who slouch terribly in an attempt to be shorter and get permanent damage in their neck and spine, yet all of this can't be true since you always felt amazing…

How many troll threads of these are we gonna have. OP how fucking new are you? We have like 3 other ones that aren't being bumped for multiple reasons. Use the catalogue, but really this thread needs to stop because it brings out all the jealous tall anons who whine about being called amazons or whatever.
>>81584>it brings out all the jealous tall anons who whine about being called amazons or whatever.
Short anon detected. It was clearly a fellow shorty of yours who got all bothered and started this, see >>81533
.>It pisses me off so much to see tall fat girls. What a waste.
I don't have a "hateboner" for tall girls, I'm just jealous of the height and I think I could do more with it.
As someone who also looks fairly young, I get given the kids' menu at restaurants before even opening my mouth. I don't get why you seem to think short women partake in "hysterical screeching". There's no need to be so aggressive.
Yes it does. I’m 5’11 but my best friend is pretty short. She’s always mistaken from behind as a child, usually by older people. She even gets the child’s ticket sometimes to movies or events. If they don’t have a womanly body and they’re very short, why is it out of the realm of possibility for someone to think they could be 12? Unless they have classic age signs like grey hair or significant breasts or makeup, with a glance they could be mistaken.
Idk why you think someone would lie about that. It’s embarrassing and makes her feel unattractive and demeaned. It’s not a good thing to happen.
Lmao ok I believe this happen, but I'm pretty sure as soon she turn around and shows her adult face people stop thinking she's twelve. The only reason she might get child's ticket is because people aren't focused and really don't give a fuck not because she genuinely look like a child.
The only reason I don't believe you guys is because every single person I've met IRL who claimed to look like a child online ended up looking very much their age and even a little older sometimes.
File: 1525512707848.gif (441.97 KB, 500x250, kws1.gif)
I know only one female who gets mistaken for a child. She's short, skinny and dresses like a boy. She does not use makeup.
People mistake her for a kid because she's so socially awkward, looks at the ground and avoids the gaze of others. She barely speaks. Her mannerisms scream an awkward 13 year old.
Unfortunately a lot of spergs that are short and skinny are convinced they are youthful, instead of realising they are radiating awkward teenage behavior. It's not somehow cute or youthful to act like a sperg.
>uwu people keep on thinking I am 12>acts 12
I've been asked if I'm 12 several times, I don't get why that would be something to brag about? I get wanting to look younger is desirable, but not 12. That is just humiliating.
(To be fair, it is probably because I am non-white that people can't figure out my age, not my height)
>>81680>There's no need to be so aggressive.
Come on, anon. Read your original post again and rethink who was being aggressive lol. I only answered those, you were being a cunt even though the posters before you only shared their experiences and never said anything negative about shorter girls.>As someone who also looks fairly young, I get given the kids' menu at restaurants before even opening my mouth
Even elemantary students already eat adult stuff, what 5-year-old has tits, ass and wears makeup?>>81695
Well I also have quite a few very short friends and again, they get treated exactly as I am, they're just shorter, but their figures, faces, styling etc prevents them from looking younger. Maybe your friend just dresses too childish…
Lol, so you not only have such a tiny ugu body that you get mistaken for a toddler, but you also don't crack
I'm like… 5'9'', so not crazy tall, but above average.
I don't know how to feel about it.
I find a lot of people do equate my height to me being masculine by default, and I definitely don't like that. It's not everyone, of course, but it's enough that I've developed an insecurity about it.
I'm also not straight, so me being tall tends to make people assume I'm the "man" in the relationship when I'm with another woman. That's annoying.
I also have trouble feeling cute in general. I feel like cute is a term more reserved for petite women. I feel like if I want to be attractive, I have to put effort into looking mature and elegant, that sort of thing. It's not inherently bad, but it's just not really my style, especially because I'm still pretty young.
But I like having long legs. I tend to carry my weight okay. And it's not like I've got people constantly telling me I'm a man or whatever. So it's not all bad.
File: 1525515831065.jpg (262.93 KB, 933x1400, will1.jpg)
Imo taller girls tend to appear younger more often. If you're very tall and slim you can easily look rather lanky, like a teen who had a growth spurt, whereas shorter ladies really need to watch their weight, just a few pounds can make a huge difference and they therefore also look more "womanly".
Also, the younger generations are getting always taller (i feel like girls who're teens nowadays are already so much taller than my friends and i…), so short doesn't really equal young and tall =/= old.

I think "cuteness" and "elegance/sexyness" depend a lot less on height than most people are saying here.
Case in point: Taylor Swift is 178cm/5'9, Lady Gaga is 155cm/5'0
File: 1525535120543.jpg (22.86 KB, 500x669, audrey-hepburn-ballet-funny-fa…)
Audrey Hepburn is also tall-ish (5'7) and I'd still consider her to be really 'cute'. Does being short help with being perceived as cute? Sure, but being tall doesn't ruin your chance of being cute.
I'm white and this is my experience as well. It is not something to brag about and it is an inconvenience in my everyday life. When I order coffee, I get asked if I'm allowed to drink that. It's humiliating. I don't understand why some tall anons get massively triggered
over this, I would like to be taken seriously, but I don't go around telling them I disbelieve their experiences.
The only way I've been able to be thought of as a legal adult is if I wear heavy makeup, use a bunch of tricks to make it seem like my breasts are there, and dress as maturely as possible. Even then I get comments like "you still look just 18, tee hee".
In real life, people berate you for this and it hurts.
Eh, I think it's largely subjective.
I think NikkieTutorials is cute and she's pretty big both ways. But, again, subjective.
I'm nearly 23 and still a kissless virgin. My friends tell me i'm pretty, older people compliment me as well and while i think that i'm not super attractive i'm sure that i'm certainly not that ugly either.
My main problem is simply that i'm taller than majority of guys. Some of them are shocked when i stand up or downright say it, meaning my height is what puts them off.
As a child was bullied by older boys and treated unfairly by adults. Even now people still think that comments or even jokes about how "weirdly" tall i am are okay. I've developed somewhat of a hunchback after years of trying to appear shorter(also starved myself, because "omg how can a girl weigh 130?!").
Whenever i sit next to a guy o feel self conscious since my hands are so massive (feet as well, but they're of course not as noticable). I'm naturally athletic so the boys in my class always asked whether i lift, since my shoulders and back are so wide.
When i was still a kid i always imagined just being able to peel of a thick layer of skin all over my body and magically be normal sized. I would give everything to be shorter and finally feel like a normal girl.
I wanr to wear cute stuff, look cute, and also allow myself to do cute things and not pretend to be strong, manly and fearless, because this is what everybody expects me to be.
I just want to feel loved and protected for once. My friends were still allowed to occasionally sit on their parents lap at 10, while i was already too big in kindergarten; truly makes you feel like a monster…
How tall are you, anon?>taller than most guys
Are you between 6' and 6'5" or so? I'm sorry people won't let you be in the role you want.
It's a pity you're straight, lots of bi and lesbian girls like tall chicks. I personally think tall feminine women are super cute.
Regardless! I'm sure you'll find a nice bf someday, maybe go for short (and buff, since you like the protection thing) men? They probably have similar issues, in the reverse.

the stereotype that tall women cant be cute sucks. sucks that tall women are perceived as old defaulty too. people want tall women to be strong, elegant, sexy, which are all good things but thats not what all tall girls want. it can be discouraging.
some inspiration for cute tall girls are definitely models, both gemma ward and lily cole are at 5'10 and are some of the cutest models of their time.>>81733

File: 1525600009918.jpg (113.13 KB, 634x916, Image.jpg)
The boots + shorts/skirt + blouse combo really seems to work well.
5’5 here and I consider myself average height, but for whatever reason appear taller than I really am and always get comments about how ‘tall’ I am by shorter girls. This has actually made me start to dislike short girls, because their comments always come off like they’re trying to put me down. For example, this chick was like “Omg you’re so0o0o tall, you make me feel like a little kid. Anon, did you know I still fit in children’s clothes?” like, ok? I care why?
I literally can’t do anything about it because I live where there’s a bunch of Mexicans and majority are fat little gremlins. It just makes me kek, because I actually genuinely find tall girls more attractive and wish I was taller, but short girls always seem to think that everyone and their mom wants to look like them.
Idk, I just find long torsos and long legs so attractive. I love long necks too, I think it’s such a beautiful feature specially when complimented with prominent collar bones. Short girls don’t really have those features and if they do, their bodies are always proportioned weirdly. I just don’t find stubby little bodies attractive, specially when the hip to waist ratio is the same… they just look like mini fridges to me. The only time I find short girls attractive is they’re thin and have a pretty face.
Why are tall girls so triggered
by short girls?
We get it, you hate yourself. Stop being so embarrassing.
tbf I think the "people mistake me for a little kid!" is more of a cow thing than a short people thing. You could honestly make a thread about rocks and some anons would manage to slip in a story about how they're 30 but look 16.>>81733
I always thought she was tiny! Wow.>>81822
I think people can pull off anything if it's tailored to them. Clothes are made to fit average proportions to appeal to the most people and I feel like that decieves people that are very tall/very short into thinking they can't pull them off. I don't think height is a huge factor in pulling off clothing, it just needs to fit correctly.
what in the fuck. i'm tall and i've always been glad i'm not short and felt kind of bad for short girls. obviously bad things can happen to tall girls too but i'm pretty sure men are more intimidated by me, take me more seriously, and often skip over me when looking for easy targets to harrass.

I remember once I was going on a excursion with my friends in middle school and while we were queuing one of the security guards started separating us into different rows. I just followed his instructions and ended up being trapped inside a bus full of kids younger than me. I felt so miserable I started crying all the way and embarassing myself, they even had me switch to the bus I was supposed to go in first place. I'd say that's one of the cons of being short, looking younger than you are and ending up in situations like this. Also me and my friend didn't get to ride in one of these mexican hats (it had swings) since we were too short and just watched as our classmates had a blast.
>>81578>hell there are even tall girls out there who slouch terribly in an attempt to be shorter and get permanent damage in their neck and spine
Right here, yup. I have a taller friend who slouches even more than me.
Except we don't slouch in an attempt to be shorter, it's just something that happened over time because we were always taller than everyone else and we tried to compensate unsubconsciently.
Agreed, it just happens when you end up interacting with short people on eye-level
what a word, anon!
I had a friend in middle school who was 1m82 tall when she was 14 years old and still growing up (I wouldn't be surprised if she had a problem like her body producing too much growth hormone or something similar) and she was slouching so much. She knew it was bad for her and she had doctors telling her to not do that but she was doing it without really noticing until someone told her.
Who cares if people stare if you don't slouch or something, walk like a model if you must (that's actually pretty cool if you ask me) but take good care of your back.

I literally said I know you guys don't do it on purpose. It's more about how some tall people know they do it even if it's not on purpose and they should try to notice it whe they do it and get new habits. I know it's easier said than done.
The parts about looking like models is because I've seen some tall girls who don't slouch being shit-talked behind their back and having other people thinking they're showing off and pretending to be hot shit/models. Which is stupid, they're just walking.

I'm 174cm. Being tall is awesome. Basically everything looks good on you, you don't look ridiculous with oversized clothes.
I have a few friends that are my height and wish they were shorter because it's seen as "cute".
I wouldn't mind if I were even taller tbh. I don't like to look up when talking to a taller person, not used to it, it just feels weird

You slim thick tall bitches make my mouth drop, gorgeous ethereal lookin’ ho’s
Sincerely, a jelly average height bitch
No they couldn't, you all people need to stop acting like a 20cm height difference has such an influence on anything. Short women aren't helpless little damsels and tall women aren't people-crushing giants.
It's as if you're talking about actual fantasy dwarves and giants. When in reality there's probably just a one head difference.
This was obviously just a joke in reaction to the anon before me shitting on tall girls again…
Nah, I consider myself pretty tall (5'7).
Any, let's say fat/obese girl above my height looks threatening to me.
Not everybody wants to model anon…
That's an extremely unrealistic career choice, that often leaves girl in debt and "unusable" by the time they're 25. (Just because you're tall doesn't mean you're pretty and skinny either.)
Being short is a huge advantage at being in opera, so why don't you sing opera anon??? See, doesn't make any sense either…
And about the money thing, if you've got no confidence (e.g. because you've been bullied) you won't get a raise either. Sometimes happiness, having a loving partner, a family is more important - something that can be difficult to obtain if most guys rule you out because of your height.

i'm 5'9 and a half, so I'm pretty tall for a grill. im also very thin, but at least it contributes to my look (spooky 80s the cure style goth, but toned down). something that's negative is that people have always thought i was older than i was, which led to people thinking my dad was my boyfriend sometimes (he's very young looking for his age). it's weird because I still have a baby face even as an adult.
TBH, i wouldn't change it. i like being tall, because people take you a lot more seriously as a woman. but short women seem to be a lot meaner to me than fellow tall girls.
>>82438>short women seem to be a lot meaner to me than fellow tall girls.
I sometimes encountered short guys with Napoleon complex who were aggressive, but usually short girls treated me the worst.
Why do you care if I wear heels?
Why do you have to point out that my hands (or my whole body) are "so huge!!!"?
What gives you the right to tell me that I look too weird talking to that guy who's a bit shorter than me?
Do you really have to point out that your clothes look sooo tiny next to mine, while acting all innocent, totally not two-faced at all?
That's honestly so tiring…
same anon, but i have very small hands and feet for a tall girl. my hands are pretty long and bony though, so i look like a skeleton.
its mostly short fat girls i deal with that are mean. skinny ones know that they're cute, so they don't really need to gang up on tall girls. like bitch, i see you stare at me with hatred, don't think i don't notice.
File: 1526196670453.jpg (429.57 KB, 667x670, c2f.jpg)
same. a few short girls have told me that it will be hard for me to find a bf taller than me or at least my height. i don't remember how many times I've heard this stupid comment and how "blessed" they are with their short height because "it has more advantages".
This thread made me use a converter for inches and centimeters now more than in my entire life. Also according to google I'm literally as tall as Nicki Minaj and this crack me up so much because I thought she was taller for some reason, so she's 1m57 tall.>>82508
I only had friends who look older than they are telling me that creepy old farts hit on them or sometimes worse. I wonder if it depends on where you are or it's just a coincidence.

There was one somewhat shortish guy (I'm 1.78) in my class who always wanted to "fight" me. But we were already older and I also did Karate, so I'm not sure if it was my height that triggered
him or something else. I always thought we're friends and that he's just joking, but later I found out that he genuinely hated me.
Other than that at least not physically.
Some have attacked me by saying "Why are you so tall?!" when we first met, probably to make me out to be the weird one and distract from the fact that their height actually isn't exactly normal either.
Or something that also happens is them calling me a man and giggling childishly because they can't see if standing behind me at a concert - again, now I'm confident enough to call them out on obviously just being extremely insecure, but back then as a teen…
any other tall girls really not give a shit if a guy you like is shorter than you? i grew up being told i was supposed to want a taller guy but i don't see what the advantage would be for me. i feel like i would only understand if i was actually short and could actually feel small and cute next to a tall guy. even if a guy is a few inches taller than me at 5'11", it's not like i'd actually seem small and dainty, so why eliminate like 95% of men from my dating pool. it's hard enough to find my type for any height and a lot of guys who are significantly taller than me are really lanky and it's just not my thing.
plus it's kind of hot when a guy is shorter than me but more dominant and aggressive as long as it's not too tryhard. i like it when a guy can't just coast on his height to seem manly cough
so he needs to embody it from within.

I'm 5'11(180cm) while my gf is 5'3(160cm). Used to be more insecure about my height, especially as a child/teen mostly because I have been the tallest person in my class, kids would often think of you as shemale. I'm not too insecure anymore except telling myself I need to lose more weight to look petite (weight 67kg but wished I could drop to 60-63kg). +often wear 5cm heels not minding the height, good people are pretty tall there so I don't stand out.
Stopped wearing trousers for a long time since many many of them come as too short, in that case tights are more comfy to wear.

Pros of being short
>can wear clothes for children which are cheaper
>can also wear various weebshit
>most men tower over and I think thats cute
>your head usually looks stupid big
>pushed around in crowds
I have recently become okay with my height and am starting to enjoy it. When I was younger I definitely wanted to be tall, like 6' and think tall girls look super elegant. That isn't to say short girls can't, I just like the look of a tall girl. It also sucks having to eat fairly small amounts, even with exercise, since I have a pretty big appetite.
That's my mother's height! I think that's such a lovely height for a lady, my mom also has big curly hair so it gives her very cute proportions. The only downside is she gets fat really easily.
I ended up being 5'7 but I always had a soft spot for shorter girls.
I'm your height too.>>most men tower over and I think thats cute
That's something I find cute for couples but personally I'm not very comfortable with guys who are way taller than me, even though I don't have a problem with women who are taller than me at all. Ideally I wish I could be tall and tower over cute guys but that's just my personal taste.
Agreed. I'm 158cm and when I walk with my friends who are over 190cm with super long legs I feel like they have the seven-leagues boots. I wish I could take bigger strides to reduce time walking long distances, even if the difference is probably not that great.
Weirdly I've never minded being a bit short, but I do think it's more elegant to be tall so I'm trying to get used to wearing heels more. Ideally I'd like to be able to wear 10cm and over heels.
I’m 5’11 and get a kick out of ruining short guys’ perceptions of height.>noooo you must be taller, I’m 5’8 and you’re much taller
Sorry buddy, guess you measured wrong? Or those three inches count more than you thought kek
That's one of the things I actually hate the most; I'm a 100% sure that I'm 5'10, yet I often got guys telling me "Haha, you most be wrong, because you're taller than me and I'm 6ft. It's okay, many don't know their real height, anon." Guess I must be a 7ft freak then…
My friends and me once took a pic with an actor who listed his height as 6'2 and he ended up being shorter than me as well.
Yeah anon I'm the same height as you and a manlet I work with claims to be 5'4" despite coming up to my chin. Meanwhile he also says he's not insecure about his height kek.
Men are ridiculous.

>i'm good at hide and seek
>shielded from the sun by taller people
>able to push through crowds without anyone noticing me
>tall friends use me as an arm rest
>get called a midget/shortie 24/7

i'm 5'8 1/2" so kind of middle of the road, leaning towards taller. i like being big and strong and sturdy, am quite thick and muscular with the height and my ex gf once described me as having a "gladiator" build.
feels good to be a little taller than most women around me, but not lanky.
in a nutshell, i like my height and build cos it makes me feel womanly and strong.
occasionally i would like to feel petite and "girlish" but i know it doesn't fit with who i am.

I'm 5' 1/4" and I hate it. I've always hated it, not even petite and slim. My proportions are ridiculous so I don't even get that 'mistaken for a child' thing. I would rather be petite and flat at my height because I always feel heavy and overweight, I have to be so careful with what I eat, how much I'm exercising, watch every pound because it goes right to my gut. Clothes look so awkward on me, I have to wear petite but then everything is tight on my hips and belly, and I love button up shirts but they look awkward on my chest unless they're huge. I can't wear shorts because my thighs are so chunky and my legs are so short they look bad no matter how much weight I lose, I look fat really easily. I've always wanted to be tall, tall girls look so elegant and regal, can pull off pretty much anything, and just look graceful to me. Nicole Kidman is my ideal for height, elegance, and beauty. I'd be happy with literally 2 more inches of height.
I can only think of a single pro, that my boyfriend is 6' and when we walk together or cuddle I fit into the crook of his arm really well.
4'9 here. I don't get the armrest thing, but I get picked up a lot. Sometimes friends trying to mess with me, sometimes complete strangers at cons or bars. I once worked with a group of cub scouts that discovered they could lift me. Little shits wouldn't listen to me all weekend after that. I get how kids can be amused, but I don't understand how so many adults can think it's okay, especially the ones who can tell how old I am.
On top of everything else in the thread, my kitchen counters are slightly too tall, to the point where I subconsciously go up on my toes or raise my shoulders. It makes food prep pretty exhausting.
As a short girl, I've noticed this, and I feel for tall girls.
For short girls, finding maxi dresses that don't drag on the ground is pretty tricky. For some reason they are mostly made to fit women who are 5'6".
Something that really sucks when your short or tall is that looking for clothes your size is a pain in the ass so I'm not even surprised that it happens.>>83864
It's because she's an asshole. Or maybe she thought she was being funny for pointing something out. >>83866>Short people can be incredibely insecure sometimes.
What I get from this thread is that some short girls can get insecure over tall women, and tall women get insecure over short women sometimes too. But I sometimes see completely average women (height and weight) making fun of tall and/or short women so it could be that her aunt was being a bitch, who knows.
>>83869>Something that really sucks when your short or tall is that looking for clothes your size is a pain in the ass
When I was complaining about having trouble finding clothes, my shorter friend also said that she always has to shorten/roll up her pants and sleeves. But what should I do? Just magic some extra onto everything inches?
I get that it's also annoying if everything is too long for you, but at least you can easily alter it.
Plus oversized-clothing is in, so it'd just look deliberate if they don't alter it.
Try wearing stuff that's too short and passing it off as "it's a trend!!"

Are you really that shallow?
my husband is exactly the same length as me but I'd love him just as much if he were shorter than me. In fact, he's shorter than me when I'm wearing heels.
nta but>it's not shallow>literally talking about a superficial aspect of a person and judging it
That's what shallow means. It's equally shallow for me to say I prefer manlets, which I do.
Although if what you're attracted to is in line with the majority, people will see you as more of a judgemental prick when you're blunt about it. Especially if it's something they can't change, like height.
imo it's fine to have strict preferences, though. Just admit that it is shallow.

US centric people confuse me
Maybe not literally 'universally' but it's pretty much used interchangeably with metric where I live for height. It isn't true for many other uses of imperial - we don't talk about weight in lbs etc. For example, every guy on tinder lists his height in imperial.
And yeah I find it easier to visualize because I'm far more exposed to people with their heights listed in feet and inches, mostly because of the internet.
File: 1528888003214.jpg (91.77 KB, 628x276, usa-still-using-imperial-units…)
i thought about using the metric system in my post, but i didn't think it was that important to convert.
anyways, most men in my country are tall. most females are a similar height since i'm very close to the average. all of my female friends are taller than me, though.
i guess i think shorter girls are cuter, and taller girls are sexier. + i'd rather be cute than sexy.
sooo, you don't like being 5'4, but you'd be okay being 5'3, but you think the height of a pair of sneakers (maybe 1/2") is enough to make you seem too tall, but it would be okay if you were 1" shorter?
Is this average height logic? Can someone explain this?
I'm somewhere between 5'1 and 5'2 (154-157 cm). And in all honesty I'd do anything to be shorter, preferably under 5ft. I admit that I'm strange and insecure so keep scrolling if you want to argue…
I've had dysmorphia since I was a kid, because I was an early bloomer who shot up real quick and was always the tallest and most developed girl in my class until I was 12/13. I constantly got unwanted attention from older men, while simultaneously being patronized by boys and even girls my age. I got accused of being a bully when I wasn't, and my parents were paranoid I'd get pregnant young even though I was socially anxious and rarely left the house. I was told I was going to be a tall, curvy girl with big tits and a badonkadonk butt. Well lo and behold, by the time I stopped developing and to this day, I am a 5'1.5 A-cup with no hips wearing size small everything and my peers accuse me of having an ED.
Also I'm white and live in an area with many Asian and Latina women who are very short (under 5ft), so I seldom refer to myself as being short, much less do I ever brag about being a ~smol bean. My fiance is 5'8" and always reminds me how much he thinks I'm his cute little ~nugget, and I believe it until I see a 6'3 guy with a 4'10 GF in public and I'm just like LOL HONEY NO.
There's something really alluring about small women, and it probably stems from past insecurities and the recent loli ddlg waifu trend… I used to attract a lot of manlets or even just guys under 6ft, who were always obsessed with my height and really petite girls (like, REALLY petite). And I would never hear the end of it. My ex even left me for his friend who was a few inches shorter than me. Sometimes when he was mad at me he'd joke around and say "I should hook up with (X) then, she's probably tighter than you too." Like WTF??? On the other hand, my best female friend in high school who was 5'9" would never shut up about her height and would get outrageously jealous when I got attention from guys, even though she was very beautiul, intelligent girl and I really wasn't that small or special.
Anyways I'll shut up now because I really don't have it bad at all. BTW I have nothing against short guys or tall girls. That's just how human genetics are. It makes me sad though when tall girls and women are made fun of because they a very statuesque and regal, plus they look great in high fashion. Also what man wouldn't want their kids to inherit tall genes?
Lmao anon, hard to imagine, but the world doesn't resolve around English! It's actually my third language, I don't study it in Uni and I won't teach it at school.

>>86415>and my parents were paranoid I'd get pregnant young
Unless there's something you forgot to mention, your parents have issues if that's what they're worried about just because you grew up fast relatively early.
>Sometimes when he was mad at me he'd joke around and say "I should hook up with (X) then, she's probably tighter than you too.
You're better off without him imo.
I'm 157cm and I barely fit in a A cup bra too, I don't want to be particularly taller or shorter than I am, but I know it's frustrating how people can perceive you because of your looks, which you can't change very easily at that. I don't really have any advice to give, except that you should ignore people's opinions and beauty standards where you live as much as possible, but that's easier said than done.>>86420

My siblings and I are very tall, my mother is average height, same as her parents. My father is tall, his parents were very stort, but he had a tall grandfather - so genetics do play a big role.
Something really interesting I heard during a history class in Uni was, that Charlemagne was not only called the Great because he was powerful, but also mainly because he was just very tall. In fact nearly all kings back then were already very tall (even for nowadays standards, read 180cm/6ft+) - in stark conrast to the rest of the population. So lookwise there was a huge difference between noble people and commoners and the simple reason for that was of course that the rich were able to always afford to eat as much as they want. So food does play a role as well (and that's why all those trendy "my raw vegan baby!" moms aren't doing their kids any favors… Same as anorexia stunts your growth).

Not just the amount, what you eat plays a role as well.
Fat people eat a monotonous diet, they stuff themselves with nutrionless junk food all day long so of course that won't help them grow.

Nutrition>The short answer to this question is that about 60 to 80 percent of the difference in height between individuals is determined by genetic factors, whereas 20 to 40 percent can be attributed to environmental effects, mainly nutrition.https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-much-of-human-height/
I always feel bad for kids who are shorter than they should be because all I can think is that they were malnourished.
Yeah, there were several kids in my class who always only got all super organic, no sugar, fat or meat lunchboxes from their helicopter moms and then ended up being short.
But some looked down on me and other kids who ate "unhealtily" (read normal) so it serves them right lol

>>87273>are all from NA and aren't malnourished.
Kek that’s not how it works. You can look fine but be malnourished, you can be from America and be malnourished. If you’re shorter than you should be, excluding medical conditions or medications, it’s probably because you’re malnourished.
In what world is admitting to being short “humblebraging.” Being short isn’t a good thing. It’s anything but humblebraging >help I’m basically a dwarf>don’t brag!!!

Ann Taylor LOFT is good for work clothes. Land's End, too, but make sure you check the size chart because you'll probably have to go down a size compared to your normal numerical size. Land's End will hem most pants to pretty much any length you want. Uniqlo will, too.
Did you even read her original post?>american petite is for landwhales>asian petite is too long!
She's clearly trying to humblebrag. And like >>87793
said she never disclosed her height.
Anon, as a average range 5'6" girl, this is not really our thread. Be prepared for someone to tell you off for it.
Regardless, I actually feel the opposite of you. I always wanted to be taller, since I enjoy feeling stronger/bigger than people around me. It could just be cope for me since I have a legitimate wide frame otherwise and had shorter/skinnier friends growing up, so I got used to it.
Luckily, there are many dateless turbomanlets out there waiting for me to literally scoop them up, so hopefully I can live out my dream of being an (artifically) big strong wife. I'm glad you found a big boy to make you feel cute.
i know what you mean about pleasing guys egos. i have dated guys who aren't so tall and my current bf is just average height. they were all obsessed with petite girls and the fact that i'm short(er than them). it's like my primary attractive trait is that i make guys who aren't 6ft+ feel better about themselves. i also compare my height/size to other short women despite being petite and thin.>>87896
tbh I'm 5'0" and think it's okay if you share this on here, it's become a general girls height thread and if you feel too tall or too short at times then it's plenty relevant.
110 if you let yourself go? I'm also 5'1.5 but i'm like 120-125 lbs lol…. That being said I wear size small in most things.
After years of wishing I were taller, I actually don't mind my height anymore. Realizing that a lot of hot people are just as short as me helped me get over it

I'm 5'5" (and white) and I hate it so much. I honestly want to rope because of it. I look dumpy at 110 fucking pounds. I swear, all the cute guys want tall girls, and tall women seem to age better, and ironically have more feminine faces. My boyfriend says he doesn't mind my height, but I seriously doubt it. I'm also at risk for having short sons, and they'd probably resent me forever because of it. My mom and grandma are both 5'9-10", so I grew up thinking I'd end up at their height. Fuck being short.
I would't class 5'5 as petite or short tbh. >>140292
find a 6'4+ bf and be a tall power couple. 6'0 with 6'4 is like 5'7 with 6'0
You grew a few more inches as a 22 yr old?
How'd you do that?
I'm 176 cm and I really like it. It's the taller end of average for females, so I get to be tall-ish and all the benefits but not tall enough to stand out. Perfect height imo.>>121063
You probably won't read this anymore but a lot of guys prefer short girls.
5'5 isn't short at all. it's just above average. and why would you be dumpy at 110? it sounds thin.
how tall's your bf?
I'm also 5'3, depends on where you live I think. When I lived in CA I felt average and even taller than most girls/some guys, but since moving to the Midwest I definitely seem short and find myself looking upwards at people more often.
On the topic of height confusion, does anyone else feel like they're a short person built like a tall person? I feel like my bone structure/proportions were meant for a way taller girl–lanky/ruler body type, huge hands and feet, bony even though I'm skinnyfat (emphasis on fat)
oh whoops i quoted the wrong post in >>140305
I meant to quote >>121063
*woops, deleted on accident
5'3 chick here!
Pros of being short : I'm considered cute, "feminine", can date short and tall men, can keep my teenage clothes…
Cons : Infantilized, not taken seriously, look like a child, "uwu ur so smoll, so fragile, I cud break u", always being picked on for being a midget, made fun of by my taller friends…
From time to time, I wish I was taller and slimmer, because you can easily look fat if you're slightly overweight, but overall, I feel good about my height. I'm quite chubby on the legs and the belly, but that doesn't stop me from wearing whatever clothes I like. I like to wear cute long skirts, oversized jackets, etc… It makes me look shorter and maybe chubbier, but who cares? I just like to wear what I like. People would say that some things don't look good on me, but as long as I feel cute in it, I don't see how it's a problem. Short or tall, just wear whatever you like and have fun!
I try to always be! Life is too short to worry about something as meaningless as height…
I have many tall friends and people in my family are quite tall as well so I'm considered like a midget here… But yeah, it's average, I'm not tall nor short, it's my relatives who are tall asf lmao.
I'm the same height and I agree on all points.
Did you also get whacked in the face as a child by women's purses in large crowds? Lmao
178cm/5'10 and I hate it so much.
>no need to be scared when walking alone at night, lower chance of getting attacked
>stronger, feel like I could protect my shorter friends, mom and sister
>helpful when short old ladies ask me to get them stuff from the upper shelves at supermarkets
>bullied as a child, still get rude comments as an adult, some people unironcally act as if they're scared of me
>everybody always had too high expectations in me, also due to thinking I'm older (been mistaken for an adult when I wasn't even 10 years old)
>what even is dating? no man (even the ones who are taller than me) is interested in me
>definitely not more respect from males, rather hostility
>ugly short and fat grannies: "She (me) will have a hard time finding a husband…" Thanks, needed to hear this as a child.
>having to endure humble-bragging from shorter friends ("omg anon, let's compare, your hand is sooo much bigger than mine! teehee" "well I fit in a size XS")
>no space for legs, knees always hurt while on the train (~2 hours nearly on the daily)
>people complain about not being able to see if they stand behind me (I bet men of my height don't get such complaints as often)
>my father is building and renting houses, uses me as free contruction worker, lumberjack etc, if I was smaller I wouldn't have to do that because I simply wouldn't be able to lift as heavy
>probably don't have a single jacket or coat that's long enough, the recent crop top trend is ony making everything worse
>look bony and manly when skinny, look massive and manly while fat
And whenever I complain short or average women tell me: "Nooo, being tall is nice, because uhm models are also tall!" as if that changes anything. You wouldn't want to trade places with me either.
Despite of course fantasizing about having a taller bf whom I could look up to and look small next to, who feels protective about me, realistically I also wouldn't really want to date a too tall man because we'd only end up looking like some tallass freak couple (and if we had a daughter she'd have an even harder time than me)
Well, of course I don't want to think of my own body as freaky but enough people act as if tall women are some sort of monstrosity? The average height for women in my country is 165cm and for males 178cm (supposedly…), so if I, at close to 180, would date a man of let's say 190+ (if
I find one) then the both of us together would certainly stand out a lot, even moreso than I already do on my own.
>>140841>13cm above average doesn't stand out
13cm definitely is
a lot. Would you say the same to a woman who's 152cm? Or to men who are 165cm or 191cm?
Plus like I said before, even if I myself wouldn't mind, that doesn't change the fact that all my life people over and over point it out (in a negative way).
I’m 5’4”, average, but I work as a commercial model, and for my industry I am essentially a dwarf. A few observations about being a short girl in the modeling industry, and being a short girl in general. First of all the standard of attractiveness I am held to in terms of face, body, hair, teeth etc is infinitely higher than girls who are 5’10+. Also, in my opinion, even outside of modeling (this does depend on geographic area and ‘type’ you fit in to), the shorter you are the more conventionally attractive you need to be to be considered attractive, whereas taller girls get away with much more unusual features. Being shorter also makes me much more approachable (something I personally don’t like) and I feel a need to dress more conservatively and behave more standotffishly to be taken seriously. My agency keeps me around because I can book lingerie, swim, and some beauty. I also spend part of the year in a city whose market is almost 100% swim. While my height definitely plays a factor in the categories I fit into, my face and body type also play a role. Almost all of the short girls I work with solely book lingerie, swim, and beauty as well.
Finally, I think short poorly proportioned or heavier girls are considered a lot less attractive than taller girls who are slightly overweight or badly proportioned. E.g. my boyfriend and his friends refer to short girls with short legs as ‘smushes’, because they look look like they have been smushed down.
i’m 4‘8 and it’s shit. my family on both sides are short (father is around 5’5 and mother is 5’0, siblings are same height as my parents) so i basically just lost the genetic lottery and it’s never benefitted me. i know it’s become a thing for shorter girls to boast about how “tiny and smol uwu” they are but i truly don’t get the appeal. i would love to be at least average height if not taller, i envy super tall women a lot but i understand why it’s as frustrating (if not worse because of the stigma/assumptions around being tall as a woman) as being super short
also elaborating kind of on what >>141088
said, being on the shorter side messes up your proportions a lot no matter what body type you have and it makes any kind of weight gain extremely obvious. i stick to cardio because toning/muscle gain on the torso area specifically doesn’t look the same as it does on most people, at least for me anyway. no one ever talks about that for some reason so i’m glad it was mentioned here because it’s depressing having to do nearly double the workout others do just to look an average weight. i think i was around 120 pounds at my heaviest weight on meds and i looked fat even thought that’s standard weight for most people, simply because my proportions are shorter and distribute weight differently
i don’t know if people want to be short because it’s got aesthetic value or it’s ddlg smol bby size kink uwu type shit but it annoys the fuck out of me. it’s embarrassing being treated like you’re not a grown ass woman and it’s not flattering, just patronising as fuck lol
sorry for the sperg. i was nervous about being accused of humblebragging about being short when actually it’s just super depressing and i wanted to vent pls no bully
I’m 175cm / 5’ 9” and it’s great
Pros:>long legs>weight gain does not show so easily>more storage space in home>i got in bars while underage which was cool thing when I was a teenager>strenght >had summer jobs that recuired physical strength and those pay decently because male dominated fields
Also I second >>140826
for the sense of security: I rarely feel afraid when walking outside alone at the night. I live in pretty safe city but some of my friends don’t still want to walk alone when it’s dark outside.
Also, I have defended some random girls from unvanted attention from guys and it’s easy for me to step in those situations because I’m nasty bitch when needed and my size gives me confidence. For some reason the men who harrass women are always manlets kek.
Cons:>when I was young and stupid I was insecure because “bohoo I’m never going to find a man” (that’s bullshit)>big feet so finding cute shoes is hard/almost impossible >tops are always too short>mini skirts show half of my butt
>>141276>i got in bars while underage
Damn, I missed out on this kinda shit. One of my best friends is a few cm's taller than me even and she could buy cigarettes or alcohol at any store. I think she has a more mature face. When I tried they'd immediately call my bluff because I have a baby face.
Also what's up with some tall women here talking about being strong? I guess it's a genetic muscle-thing because I've always been skinny and except for some nice stomach-muscles my arms are weak as shit and always have been lol. Literal twigs for arms.
I feel you anon, this shit makes me so fucking self conscious, if it wasn't for the stupid "uwu I'm so sm0l in comparion to you" shtick they pulled I wouldn't even have noticed those differences. Now I always e.g. worry about my hands being as big or bigger as guys and them noticing, it just makes you feel so unfeminine. >>141317
I was ana as a teen and even skelly-me was much stronger than my heavier yet shorter classmates. On the one hand it makes me feel safer against men, on the other hand it also serves to make feel even more like a failure of a woman. Sometimes I wonder whether other girls only pretend to be weak (for example many acted as if me playfully slapping their upper arm genuinely hurt them and I'm by no means a brute), so that they could get guys to do stuff for them or to force me into carrying shit for them.
I guess due to my height I was just always treated as one of the boys and therefore my body was forced to develop stronger?
I don't work out either. What I meant is that because of my height everybody always expected me to be strong, like I had to do work in the garden since I was in kindergarten, then later in school everybody always went "You're so tall, you must be able to run faster, jump further, etc", so I just always forced myself because it's not like I was given a choice to do otherwise and now I'm simply used to it. Nobody ever cared that my arms are much skinnier and less muscular than others, because they always only noticed my height. And then additionally all those other girls using their "I'm shorter, that's too heavy for me"-card… Even if I wanted I couldn't pretend to be weak, because I'm literally as tall as most men, nobody would buy that.
People (especially americans it seems honestly social culture-wise) just really like to give their unsolicited comments about how someone looks because they stand out sometimes.
Being tall is mostly a good thing. Idk who managed to break you down, anon but taking into consideration you're tall you don't have actual big hands or feet. You have hands and feet in proportion to your tall body. It's not a dealbreaker for most people at all. Do you think most men or even people in general really think pr care much about your shoe size?
Nobody comments loudly and elaborates about someone being fat most of the time because it's not a positive. Being tall is a positive and stands out in a good way in most cases. As a tall woman if I see another girl taller than me I go "wow!" in a positive, amazed way honestly.
Maybe not the feet specifically but a lot of guys are turned off by girls being tall cause it’s seen as mannish and having larger hands cause they’re “man hands” or something. And when girls give unsolicited comments about these things it’s not I’m a positive way as the original poster said, it’s in a way where they’re humblebragging about how much smaller and thereby more feminine they are>omg anon, let's compare, your hand is sooo much bigger than mine! teehee" "well I fit in a size XS"
So I was asking about that
I haven't experienced guys being particularly turned off by tall women. Some could be intimidated but men really aren't picky. So some guys sure, a lot of guys? Most guys? I wouldn't say so. Women are much more harsh about height in dating than men.
It's just trying to have the upper hand at a perceived threat probably. Why else would some of them make a big deal about it? Studies show seeing someone taller has a psychological effect on how others perceive you. They typically will view you as superior if only slightly and mostly subconsciously. So these short women who act like this are just asserting their dominance somehow in whatever petty way they can. Women do be like that sometimes.
Some women with smaller hands have short sausage-fingers anyway which isn't a particularly good look honestly. Completely depends on personal anatomy and proportions more than small being good on women compared to big automatically being bad.
I just can't figure out what else the point would be? Seems the most logical explanation. Most people understand somewhat that beauty is diverse even if it has some rules. Sometimes it can be a positive to stand out which might be a cause for both good and bad reactions from people depending on the situation. As many average height people here have pointed out.
Also; the grass is greener on the other side effect. Shorter women might be perceived as more cute and traditionally feminine/sexy. Taller women hunch down their posture and can wonder what it's like to be cute and dainty. Taller women are often perceived as more elegant and striking (particularly in clothing). Could easily cause jealousy in some shorter women.
In short, socially being tall has the most advantages so it would be more likely to cause some insecure short women to act out.
>>141548>I’ve been told it’s because they’re jealous of me cause I’m ~just so pretty~
This is so tiring, people always tell me that but it's such a cope, the same old "he only bullies you because he actually likes you!" lie. They're always making those remarks while comparing me with themselves, sometimes even comparing me with guys and I've even had a couple of scrotes giving me the "you must be a man/are you a man lmao" comment, like how is that them just being jealous? They're clearly very happy about not having my body, they're never putting themselves down, otherwise they'd use stuff like "I'm such a midget, my legs are so much stumpier than yours" instead of "I'm sooo petite, even a size xs is too big for me, everybody thinks I'm only a teen!" (with a big grin on their face).
I don't want to wk short men, since they've been often very cruel and passive aggressive to me as well, but I noticed that taller men do that comparison shit to them too, only the other way around, the one with the biggest everything is the "winner", the manliest, the most handsome.>>141555>socially being tall has the most advantages so it would be more likely to cause some insecure short women to act out.
People often use this argument but this is only the case for men. Until not that long ago parents of fast growing girls got treatment to stop their daughters from becoming too tall, being tall as a woman is only seen as positive if paired with being a uber skinny, having a perfect face and working in the fashion industry. No men in any kind of career field respects a woman more just because she happens to be tall. If anything, they perceive her as a threat to their manliness and superiority and as a result treat her even worse. Also, of course not all, but some women do play up the "small and helpless" damsel thing to get male coworkers to do stuff for them or to go easy on them.
>>141584>boyfriend can easily carry me
I don’t know why short girls always bring this shit up. Any guy can carry a girl with ease as long as she isn’t a fucking fatass.
t. 5’7 and 115 pounds
No, it's not just the case for tall men even though it counts for more in their case. Being tall in general puts mostly positive attributes upon you during first impressions with others. Tall women are more likely to be taken seriously in the workplace. Short women are viewed as more nurturing by men though.>>141598
I don't think this is necessarily a height-thing. I'm tall and a lightweight both with drinks and food honestly.
As tall myself I'm wondering the same thing. It's one thing to have a bit of a complex about it but seems a bit overblown from statements on here.
Reading on lolcow has reminded me how women almost seem to love to hate themselves honestly.
Agreed. Just because you're tall, you can't just waltz in there, get whatever job you want and suddenly all men respect you.>"wow, this bitch"
That's exactly how it is in my opinion. Shorter women might get hit in more but tall women get passive aggressiveness, men actively working against them or shittalking them behind their back.
>>141641>The standards for men and women are opposites
Not really. Men don't care about height the way women do, it's not like fat and skinny where 99% will prefer the latter. Most men will be attracted to women of most heights, and fundamentally enjoy novelty so won't restrict themselves to one type. >so if you're a woman you have more power if you are physically small, because you fit the standard.
Even if being short really was objectively the standard of beauty for women, since when does fitting beauty standards garner respect? Men wanting to fuck you isn't a form of power.
You have a point that men might be intimidated or passive aggressive about it, but height affecting how seriously people take you is one of those subtle subconscious things. Men don't respect women most of the time regardless of height, but they might not automatically see you as physically weaker and lesser when you're not half their size and they're literally looking down on you. It's not even necessarily about men vs women, children are small, sick/unhealthy people are small, it's common sense that it might influence your perception subtly.
What men do some tall anons here surround themselves with? I don't think it has anything to do with height if men around you are plotting against you (definitely doesn't sound weird) like what the fuck is going on in this thread.
The fact is that if you go to google and actually read up on this shit being tall even as a woman has more benefits than cons.
Then you shouldn't believe all those short anons who claim that everybody mistakes them for a preteen and that all men everywhere always want to fuck them either…
It is how it is anon, you telling me I must be wrong doesn't change the way people treat me. I've been getting shit for my height since I was a toddler and it likely won't change for the rest of my life (unless somebody invents shortening surgery lol) >>141656
You can also google that (despite what anons claim) statistics show that close to all men vastly prefer short women when it comes to dating. >>141657
They see you as a female who has the audacity to compete against them and men absolutely hate that.
File: 1591874866588.jpg (377.6 KB, 1080x1305, IMG_20200611_132400.jpg)
I don't see myself as competing with men but they act as if my height is a threat or an attack on them and therefore treat me hostile. I'm a very shy and passive person, so it's definitely not because I have an assertive personality, it's simply my appearance.
Some men might fap to vs models but when it comes to relationships short women are the winners.
Yeah, men are insecure about their own height. It's not about you being seen as an actual man.>>141666
Why do men act hostile toward you? How do you know it's your height? Sounds weird still.
As stated before men really do not care about women's height when they're dating as much as women by far. There's tons of studies that show this. Most men would date an attractive woman taller than them in a heartbeat. Women of average height have the most advantage in the dating scene but tall women do not have a particularly hard time at all.
that's their own insecurity speaking lel>>141662>there was a study saying that men don't perceive women who they don't find attractive as women so for most it's tall women
there's also studies saying that smoking and obesity are healthy fucking lol I wouldn't put too much value in some random one off-study
You have to own your height. I have two friends who're 5'11 and 6'1. They're attractive women who radiate self-confidence. Both have and have been in fulfilling relationships with men. The only one who's letting your height bother you and hold you back is you, literally. Grow some self-esteem.
I agree with this anon
Being tall is awesome. Who cares about being uwu smol and cute? If you're tall you can look like a goddess. Just don't get fat because that looks unfortunate and clunky. Thankfully it's easier to be slim when you're tall.
Models are 5'10+ and they're the most beautiful people in the world. I don't think anyone would go "ew no but she's too tall" unless they're an insecure man.

5'3 womanlette here
Tall women, I love you so fucking much. What I'd give to be one of you. Tall, powerful, strong. I like myself and the way I am too but damnit!!!!! I'd love to be tall. I'd love to intimidate loser short men like that. Your height alone filters the weaklings. You ladies are gorgeous and I love you, have a great fucking night. AND day. Have a great existence.
Fellow womanlettes, reflect. Do better. Buy the boots with the heels-stop letting men look down on you. Throw away the kitten heels, get at least the 3inchers and look him in his eyes. If you see fear, stop wasting your time and leave him already.
