And sometimes they can be flattering like "I love a tall girl," but a lot of times they're just totally weird.And the guys who are shorter than me often just avoid me entirely, because they don't want the socially shameful aspect of it. His forearms kind of dangle over your shoulders and your arms wrap around his waist like a two-year-old—because that's not weird.
Then they become waify model types, which is perceived as the highest level of female beauty.
I've had periods of my life where I basically starved myself to get down to a size 4-6, which on my height is really thin, and it was like I was a celebrity.
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.
She looks really confident in her surroundings, and doesn't have to worry about slouching or what clothes she wears all the time.
That bend-and-kneel combo he has to do to embrace you in a spot that won't choke you just feels wrong.
