12 Things you know if you’re seriously tall
1 When you meet another girl’s eye-line at a party, you both freeze because this never, ever happens…
2 … But if you’d passed her on your commute you’d exchange the ‘tall-girl’ look of quiet approval.
3 You’ve never modelled or played basketball, but still get asked this enough to wonder if you might secretly be Karlie Kloss.
4 Men sometimes whisper “you’re tall” as they pass you, and won’t stop staring. Is this what being a Kardashian is like?
5 You’re the only person in your Pilates class who can’t touch their toes and it drives you insane (you have 92cm legs, it’s fine, breathe, let it go).
6 If you could ban one thing, it would be marketing emails that start with, “Hi, leggy lovelies!!!”
7 In theory, you save cash because designer stuff doesn’t fit; in reality, you’ve spent it all on bags.
8 Your height acts as an Idiot Detection Device on dates (stand up, then if he looks horrified, smile and leave).
9 Nothing – not socks, not boots – has ever knowingly gone over your knee.
10 Your hair gets sucked into the ceiling fan at least once every summer.
11 Nothing stresses you out like fighting for your favourite discontinued clothes on an online store. The struggle is real.
12 You wouldn’t change your height for the world. Well, you might for some perfect-fitting trousers.
