I'm a 6'3 (1.91m) girl. I'm 18 years old! I've got quite slim too.
What I was wondering is whether I'm "too tall"for society. For example in 6th form I'm the tallest there including boys and most of my friends are Like 5'3 so they're tiny next to me. Whenever We take pictures we can't do any cute poses cause the difference is too much. I also can't wear heels as then I'd just be massive. I've never had a boyfriend because of this. I know there are slight benefits but the negatives are too much. People always point out my height and ask to compare sizes with me as it makes girls feel more "delicate" when my hand is like double the size of theirs.
This is a classic issue guys also face being 'too small' - the way I see it, do you really
want to go out with somebody who cares more about height than getting to know you? I wouldn't!
You can't change your height, it's in your genetics. So, focus on finding the perfect guy (who doesn't care about height). He'll be worth 1000x more than the boys who care about your height and refuse to get to know you because of it.
I understand your insecurity, but just know there are so many insecurities girls (and boys alike) have, it's not just you!
I grew up with super pretty friends always getting the attention. Whenever we went out, they'd get attention, because they were objectively 100 times prettier than me, and I was a bit fatter (not fat per se, but size 12 when they were size 8s). Literally didn't have a boyfriend until I was 22. But because I didn't desperately try to get with anyone, and I just let things happen, it made me appreciate it so much more when it happened. Turns out he's the one, and I honestly believe I'll spend the rest of my life with him.
It's so frustrating feeling left out, and I'm not saying just don't make an effort - I just mean, don't worry about it, because so many people feel the same/similar.
