Hiya!
I'm a 6'5 girl. I'm in the UK and sadly I'm still growing. I'm also super lanky.
At school I'm the tallest including boys and I feel bad about it. I always have people ask to compare heights etc. Am I too tall for a girl? I'll likely get a bit taller too. What can I do to blend in more.

Too tall? No such thing.

Taller than average? Obviously, yes.

Own it. Don't shy away from it.

Theres nothing to worry about. You could be the tallest at your school but you may be closer to average at another or not the tallest. Just own it.

Yeah, but they're just going to get lost in the crowd of mediocrity.

You're 6'5. Considerably above the average height for men and waaaaaay above the average height for women.

You're probably not going to ever 'blend in'. So you should own it. If it makes you feel insecure, don't compare heights anymore then

Tall? Yes. Too tall? No such thing. I'm guessing both your parents are tall too?

Are you sporty? Basketball, netball, high jump etc would be good with your body shape.

Well, sorry, but tough! You are, so you'll have to learn to cope.
Make it your thing.

Sure, some people are going to be narrow minded... But that was always going to be the case, no matter what your proportions.

I won't beat around the bush, 6'5 is phenomenally tall for a girl, and at 16 years old where you're likely to grow just a little bit more. You could end up being 6'6-7. Too tall is an interesting description. We must ask, "Too tall for what?", otherwise it's just a blanket description that implies you're too tall for anything - even existing.

Obviously that's not true, so I guess you'll have to specify your question a little more. As for the question about blending in, it's a little hard to hide your height from the public, unless you're sitting down. So you could either go around in a wheelchair/one of those electric ones, or just face the reality that you are who you are. Make it your thing. You won't find any trouble making friends or finding a partner if you don't let your own appearance restrict your inability to do what everybody else does, like socializing and going out. You'll inevitably come across people who will ask how tall you are, or make a comment on your height. Brush it off and act like it doesn't effect you.
