Dating Then & Now – Molly

Then The first time a boy asked me out was in the sixth grade on a bus. After he asked, the popular girl next to him turned around and told me to just say no because he was asking me on a dare. Then they all laughed. This mortifying experience began a decade of boys avoiding me and me skittishly avoiding them. I was tall and weird as heck, but I really don’t think it was the Hot Topic paraphernalia

Dating a Shorter Man: Fiancé Edition

If you read my previous article about dating a shorter man, you know that it has a happy ending. Or rather a happy beginning. Kyle proposed to me after our The Tall Society photoshoot, at a place we reserve for celebrating beginnings and endings of chapters in our New York lives: The Plaza Hotel. Most of the engaged I meet aren’t actually surprised about the proposal. They’ve discussed the future in serious tones and decided marriage is an inevitability of

Dating Then & Now – Kristin

THEN When I was a teenager, I loved the idea of living out a romantic comedy. Never Been Kissed was and still is my favorite movie. I just always imagined myself bumping into someone, spilling coffee on them and then spending the rest of our lives together. I would try and manipulate situations. I remember this one time I was attending a friend’s show. They were performing in a community theater production of Seussical The Musical. It was a cute

$75.000 for your Eggs

There’s literally no way for me to avoid the awkward nature of this topic, so I’m just going to dive right in. I once was offered $75,000 for my eggs. As in…my lady eggs. I know you may be thinking, ”No way, she’s lying!”, but my husband, family, and close friends can attest to the fact that this did, in fact, happen. The story is pretty interesting, so if I haven’t totally offended you by talking about my –erm –eggs,

Stop Using the S-Word

I’m sorry is a phrase we’ve learned to say, not only as women, but as tall persons. I’m sorry I’m taking up too much space. I’m sorry I’m blocking your view. But are you actually sorry? Shouldn’t sorry be reserved for more grievous circumstances like running over someone’s dog or giving them food poisoning? At university, I accidentally broke someone’s toilet while they were sleeping. I didn’t want to wake them, so I tried to fix it myself until the

Dating Then & Now – Kellee

THEN Ever since I started noticing the boys in class, I realized that I was always the tallest. It didn’t matter if you were a boy or girl, I was still the tallest person. The times I would notice a cute boy in class, I would try to see how tall he was and as always, he was shorter than me. When I moved back to the east coast from California and started middle school in New Jersey, I saw

Dating Then & Now – Katie

THEN Growing up in the midwest, I can’t recall a time when I felt too tall to date. Perhaps it’s because there’s a large concentration of people with lanky Germanic, Swedish, and Norwegian ancestry. I also didn’t reach my full 6’0” height until college. What was I self-conscious about? Hair. Hair that grew in places instead of my head. The first time my fuzz was addressed, 15-year-old me was working at an amusement park. One Saturday, as I gathered basketballs

Dating Then & Now – Christiana

  THEN I honestly can’t believe I’m putting this out on the Internet for the world to see…gotta love transparency. For all you tall girls out there who are frustrated with the dating scene, read my story! It’ll give you hope. Elementary and middle school—otherwise known as an awkward kid’s worst nightmare. My best friends at the time were getting their first “Want to be my girlfriend? Check yes or no” letters, and I desperately wanted one. I remember one

Dating Then & Now – Bree

THEN I’ve been tall for a long time. Standing proudly at 6’4” for a good 20 years now. High school is when I started noticing boys. My girlfriends would be asked out for dates or for the prom. Some of them even had steady boyfriends. That was not my high school experience. I was always around boys a lot, because I was their friend. There was this one boy in high school. I’ll never forget him because he was a

Seeking My Sartorial Style

I envy those cartoon women on TV. There’s Minnie with her red-and-white polka dot dress, Daria in her ’90s olive blazer, and even Velma in that bulky orange turtleneck. My admiration for them is twofold: 1) these gals don’t have to spend time thinking about what to wear, and 2) the outfit they wear has become unmistakably them. Perhaps you’ve read the think-pieces that tell us why highly successful people choose to wear the same thing every day. The articles
