The daily life in the eyes of a tall person.

OMG – Oh my god

AF – As fu*k (A phrase inserted after any adjective to make it stronger.)

BFF – Best friend forever

I have many people say to me “OMG I would love to be your height” and then you have the people who are like “OMG you’re sooooooooo tall!!!” like I’m a full-blown freak of nature. Come on guys, us giants have feelings too.

When I was younger I hated my height, but as I have gotten older and grown (literally) more confident, I have learnt to embrace it… I’m not going to pretend I love it though.


So here’s a little insight into the life of being a ‘little’ taller than average.

  1. Yes I know I’m tall! Thanks for telling me though….. It’s been a day or so since someone informed me.
  2. You are known as, and always will be known as the tall one.
  3. Children and their honesty have the power to send you from normal to beetroot (very red-faced) in 2 seconds flat. Don’t you just love kids?!
  4. You never stand up normal height in a photo with your cute AF 5ft 4 friends; you are always hiding at the back with your legs bending.
  5. Before even considering a guy for a date your imidiate respsonse is ‘How tall is he’
  6. The shortest men always fancy you out of all your friends – You are afraid to internet date because of this. 
  7. Men are intimidated by you.
  8. People stare at you…a lot!
  9. There is nothing cute about your size 7 feet, and everyone will ask what size your clown feet are and gasp when you tell them.
  10. Shoe shopping is probably one of your least favourite things in life.
  11. Trainers are your BFF
  12. YOU DO NOT WEAR KITTEN HEELS, but your friends will say you do and bully you for it for the rest of your life.
  13. ASOS tall section is the greatest thing that has ever happened to you.
  14. You have, or will probably walk down the aisle as a bridesmaid in a dress that’s 2 inches too short for you.
  15. What shoes do you wear on a date? Like seriously?
  16. The cropped jeans trend was one of your favourite, easiest to buy trends of the 21st century.
  17. You grew up with your mum constantly telling you to stand straight “don’t hunch your shoulders” and be proud of your height. Easier said than done huns.
  18. You can’t wear a yellow dress… humans are mean and will call you big bird.
