I think I like it better than I would like being really short, though.""I think beautiful is partially how you carry yourself, but I am just like everyone else: I see girls that I wish I looked like and I think, "Oh wow, she's beautiful," and I'm jealous of her.Like, I see a girl sometimes who is 5'5" or so – a normal height – and she's just with some guy who is shorter than me but still much taller than her and I think that they look...? Because to me, she is beautiful because she fits into something, and she looks happy and natural.
People stared at me in the street in a good way, and I was treated differently.
So if I want a guy who doesn't really think of my height in any way, I have to date a guy who is 6'3 or above, which limits my pool a lot.""To be blunt, we [as a society] only like tall girls when they are very thin.
Then they become waify model types, which is perceived as the highest level of female beauty.
Honestly, I have it better than a lot of people, so I don't want to complain too much.
But it just gets so frustrating when you receive all these messages on dating sites about how you're an Amazon, or people joke with you that your boyfriend "likes to climb trees." My body type is seen as something strange and weird and fetishized, because we almost never see women like me represented, even though we're all around.
