17 Awkward Things That Happen To Tall Girls

Ask any tall girl, and she will tell you that going out can get awkward. Whether it’s your heels that make you the height of a professional basketball player, guys who come to your shoulder, or the perpetual squat you hold to talk to people, being tall comes with its fair share of uncomfortable situations.

16 Celeb Couples Where She Is Taller Than He Is

Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley is 5’5″ and his lady Ari Cooper  is 6 feet tall (without giant platform shoes). These two are, what Michelle Collins of Best Week Ever refers to as a “tally-smally couple.”  Go tally-smallys! We respect tall ladies who aren’t afraid to own their stature. And we praise vertically challenged men for…

Girl Talk: I Like Dating Shorter Guys

This might surprise you, but I didn’t find out until recently that most women do not feel the same way as me when it comes to loving vertically challenged men. When most women find out about my preference for smooching shorties, it’s usually met with crinkled noses and “I could never” or “gross” or the…

Are Androgynous Athletes Changing The Game Of Beauty?

You know, as a writer, I understand the impulse to manufacture trends in cases where there are none. Got to generate that copy, yo’. But the New York Times‘ “Brittney Griner, Basketball Star, Helps Redefine Beauty” is really one of the stupidest pieces of pseudo-trend journalism that I’ve ever read.

If you’re not…

Compared To The World’s Tallest Model, You Are A Midget

Geez, and I thought I was tall. Check out the world’s tallest model, Eve, who stands 205 centimeters tall — nearly seven feet. She makes the model next to her look so teeny-weeny. The 32-year-old’s bikini had to be custom-made to fit her towering figure. Her nickname? “Babezilla.” Check out her video from an Australia…

How To Date A Tall Chick

I’m tall. I mean, I’m really tall. And I don’t mean 5’10” tall. I’m 6’1″. That’s ridiculously tall. Kermit the Frog once said: “It’s not easy being green.” Well, it’s not easy being a tall woman, either. Among the more common pickup lines we tall ladies hear: “Do you play basketball?” (No.) “What’s the weather…

The Power And Politics Of Height

I was intrigued by the amount of interest and opinions voiced in last week’s posts about height, which led me to think that there was more on this topic than is usually discussed. When I think about height, it is usually in terms of style. As the fashion industry tends to favor the long of…

Is Height The New Weight?

Lately we’ve been talking a lot about height. Ali has written two pieces in the last few days, about how to amplify your height (if you’re on the shorter side) and the height issues that can come up in relationships. We also posted part of an essay from a woman about being tall and how…

Modern-Day Popeye And Olive Oyl

I’ve only dated a few men that are shorter than me. And when I say “a few” I mean one. Maybe two if I really dig—deep into the Dead Sea perhaps. I have definitely dated a lot of guys that are within an inch or two of my own height.

Being in a relationshi…

Advice For The Vertically Challenged

Why is it that the one thing you really dislike about your body is always the one thing you can’t do anything about? I have sort of accepted my short legs, or, rather, I have kinda accepted the fact that they are short and sparing a minor miracle, that’s not going to change. Standing somewhat…

Mind Of Man: The Types Of Women That Really Turn Us On

I went on a date the other week with a pair of hot Swedish volleyball players with galactic hoots and bodies so taut that quarters bounce off bellies. These buxom hotties could easily have graced the pages of Brodawg Magazine, posing in the rain, wearing only leather belts. As they were putting on their heel…
