16 Things You Should Never Say To A Tall Woman

Lots of people feel entitled to comment on a woman's appearance -- especially if that woman happens to be taller than them. I am 6'5 and I get this alot.

Just as skinny women are tired of being told to "eat a burger" or that they "look like a toothpick," and short women cringe when someone asks "what the weather's like down there," taller women are subject to giraffe jokes and questions about their femininity.

Heres the list:

  1. "It must be hard to find a man who's comfortable with your height."
  2. "You have long feet."
  3. "I wish I was as tall as you."
  4. "You must have played basketball in high school!"
  5. "Good luck finding a husband!"
  6. "How TALL are you?!?!"
  7. "Have you always been this tall?
  8. "You shouldn't wear heels."
  9. "Being petite is so much harder than being tall."
  10. "Do you play volleyball?"
  11. 'You're an Amazon."
  12. "Could you grab that for me?"
  13. "You could be a model... you know, height-wise..."
  14. "You must have trouble finding nice clothes."
  15. "When are you going to stop growing?"
  16. "I'd date you if you were shorter."

I'm guilty of asking people, women and men, who are taller than me to grab things for me. I'm 5'4" so sometimes grabbing things is near to impossible for me.

I've said most of those to a friend I had in high school. I was joking of course, and she always joked about never finding a guy that's as tall as her.

I always clap like an eccentric fashion designer when my friend Eddica walks towards me and say "Yaaaasss! Darling! Yaassss!"

she's tall and lithe and so, so gorgeous.

I'm guilty of asking taller people to grab things for me... but that's b/c I'm 5' 1" and it's either ask for help or scale the shelving/furniture :p

I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller..

Im upwards of 6 feet and I get those all the time. I HATE "Wow! You're tall!" Like I just magically grew while they weren't looking.

Yes I hate it! I'm not even that tall but at 5 "8" it's still annoying. I don't wear heels and my hubby's shorter then me and he loves it! His head is perfect boob area :)
