Birthday: January 7th, 1964
Hi, my name is Janet. I am 5'11", fun, flirty and 46. I love having the opportunity to be "Tall Woman of the Month" for July of 2011. I was born on January 7, 1964 in Illinois to tall parents. As a matter of fact, tallness was the norm in my family - my mom is 5'11", my dad is 6'2", and both of my brothers stand at 6'3" and 6'5". From early on, I was always the tallest in my class and never thought twice about it.
At the age of 12, when I moved to Ohio, I realized that I was different from other kids. The boys especially were not accepting of my height and I was bullied. I went to an all-girl high school as an escape. I, too, tried to hide my height by slouching, but my mother was always around to pull my shoulders back and say, "Stand up straight!" At the time, I just wanted to be like everyone else and blend in. It took me many years to accept the fact that I am tall, but now I am proud of my height and always display it with confidence! At work, you will often find me running up and down the halls with 2-3 inch heels and I love it. Heels somehow make those incredibly long legs look sexy and are admired by many! When asked why I wear heels, my response is always, "Because I can!" As tall women, we do stand out in the crowd, so why not give them something to look at and learn to appreciate your tallness as I did.
Employed within a school district, I work among basketball and volleyball coaches. I find it humorous when they say that they would love to have me on their team. And let's not forget about all those customers who will express a look of relief when I walk down their aisle at the grocery store because they are in need of an item on a shelf that is out of "their" reach. Without fail, I am always at their aid. However, there are times when I have been tempted to ask them to grab something off the lower shelf for me.
What kind of guys do I like? I especially like tall men. I absolutely love this website!!! It is truly refreshing to hear stories and words of wisdom from other tall women around the world.
Remember to hold your head up high and realize that tall women ARE gorgeous and beautiful!
