But… we make good girlfriends too!

People, people, we have to talk. Really, it’s about time! Remember the time I complained about the fact that only curvy women are real women? Well, a while ago we got part two. A friend of mine read fifteen reasons why short girls are better girlfriends. There was some logic in these reasons, I have to admit that. But still! I decided to spread the word about why tall girls are also awesome. (Because we want to be loved too…!) Being tall myself, I think there are plenty of reasons why being tall is awesome. Plenty!

Just don’t go asking which ones I have in mind.

Luckily there’s the Great Internet to help me out! This list of 15 Benefits of Being A Tall Girl is the best one for sure. The first reason it mentions is the fact that we are just badass – straight to the point! Because you see, we are pretty badass. We are slightly intimidating, we look like we could be professional basket ball players (those who know me will know that I am not…) and we can reach the highest shelve. Isn’t that brilliant? In our appartment here in Poland, I get to use all the top shelves, and I like that. We’re badass because we’re independent because we can take whatever we want from whatever shelve. There ya go.

It makes you a badass.

We’re pretty baddas. From the article linked to above.


Until a certain moment, I wasn’t too fond of wearing heels. Since I moved away for university, I suddenly noticed that I’m actually very tall, and not just quite tall. Not feeling the need to be looking over everyone, I didn’t wear heels for a while. But then along came my love for heels again, and I stopped caring. These days I’m wearing my winter boots with heels quite a lot, mainly because it’s winter. I don’t have a bike here, so I walk around the city on heels.

And you know what?

It feels great. As the article states, you feel like a super model. I can’t help feeling damn well when wearing heels. Even if I intimidate people, well, it’s not that bad, right? I’d rather have them be impressed than to laugh at me. So up the heels! It helps that in Eastern Europe, you’re never the only one wearing heels, and you’re never the one wearing the highest.

It also seems to be true that you can eat a lot and you’ll still be slim. Especially here I eat a lot. Really, a lot. Bit it’s okay, so far I still don’t get fatter. I have enough length to divide the weight. And because of this I also have legs to be proud of. Every skirt you buy will be way shorter on you than on the others, but hey, at least you have the legs to rock it!

So, let’s keep the positive vibe for tall girls going! And of course, also for the short girls and everything in between. I’m not trying to say we’re the best, but I felt like a little response would do no harm πŸ˜‰

  1. Short or tall
    Bring them
    I love them all

  2. On my list of girlfriend criteria, height doesn’t even make the cut.


     /  March 6, 2015

    It’s all good. But if my life experience has taught me one thing, then it’s that there is one bad side effect that can have more impact than what potential boyfriends think. Sometimes a very short man is your boss or an important client at work, and you’re in for a very challenging situation if they happen to have issues with that.

    • Hmm yes, that could be true. But on the other hand, I think that would make for a kind of man it’s always hard to deal with in one way or another. And hopefully the badassness will help in that case…?

  4. Tall girls have great legs and I’m very much a leg man.

    Yay for legs.

  5. I’m a tall girl … just a whisper under 6′ tall in fact and I used to be so self conscious. Then I decided that short of having a bit of my legs removed I am this height and I might as well embrace it. And you know what? Being tall is great! Loved this post … let’s spread the love for tall gals πŸ™‚

    • As you say, there’s not really an option to change it… But luckily there’s no need to either! Being tall is great indeed πŸ™‚ (quite literally even πŸ˜‰ )

  6. Self confidence.
    Self confidence is hot.
    I don’t think you have anything to worry about.

  7. You go girl! Tall or short, all girls are awesome πŸ™‚

  8. Pssst – I am so happy you are back to wearing heels, you super model, you!
