I am 6ft tall, and being in the Midwest I get alot of stares. There are not many women around this area that are tall so I stick out. I am 28 years old and the tallest person in my family. My thoughts on being tall are this: I can not walk in to a room with out all eyes being on me. I think there is something powerful about a tall women who walks with confidence. She exerts a sexiness that short women can not. Growing up was not easy for me, I got made fun of and there were very few boys who were taller than me. Looking back, I believe alot of it was jealousy, or the fact that they didn't like someone who wasn't the same.
I have dated all kinds of men, shorter, taller, the same height. I do not think it makes one bit of difference as long as you are happy with yourself and your relationship, it will definitely show through. I have a daughter that is 9 years old, she is going to be tall like me. I am trying to teach her that its perfectly ok to be proud and tall. I don't want her to go through the things I did, but I also know that it made me a stronger person. A year ago I would not of been able to submit my picture and ask to be a tall woman of the month. I was very unhappy and overweight.
Since May of this year, I have lost around 40 pounds and have started to find my inner beauty once again. I have thought about modeling, but still don't think I am quite there. Your site gives me great hope, and I think that someday I will be able to do it!
