I’m 17 years old and have never been in a real relationship before. I feel like I’m pretty decent looking and have a nice body. But the problem is that I’m tall. I’m 5,11 and 1/2 and guys always go after the short tiny twiggie girls and it’s so unfair. My parents and my aunts and uncles always say “ just you wait cause when you get in college guys will be taller and fully grown and will notice you.” But no that’s not even true because I went to visit the college of my dreams and I see guys at the college that are 6 ft tall and up that are going out with all girls that are super short and tiny that are so much shorter than me that are like 5,4 and below and everywhere I go I see grown men that are 6 ft tall that are walking with girls that are really short and tiny. I feel like things will never change with guys always choosing the short girls. I feel like I will never get a boyfriend because I’m such a giant that scares everyone away. I even put on my Snapchat story asking all the guys on Snapchat if they like short girls or tall girls better and every single guy that has gotten back to me said short girls and I asked one of the boys on why they’d rather choose short girls over tall and skinny girls and he said that he finds tall girls unattractive and that short girls are tiny adorable and sexy and he also said that when he cuddles short girls they get to look up into his eyes and that he gets to lean down and kiss them. Then I said but I have the body of a super model I don’t get why guys don’t like that. The guy then said “ well what do you look like. Then I showed him pictures of myself and he said “ I don’t think you have the body of a super model and then he found a picture of a super model online and said that that’s a super model and that I’m not and then he said that short girls are adorable and sexy once again and that they always get the guys. Then I started thinking to myself well if I don’t have the body of a super model and if I’m not short adorable and sexy then I don’t know what I am. I feel like I’m lost on who I am based on physical appearances and I don’t know what to do. I’m really stuck on finding a boyfriend when I’m taller than everybody and I want guys to start choosing the tall girls instead of the short ones for once. I want my wish to come true and I want help.

You're 17. You don't need to be worrying about all of this. If you get to 37 and still experiencing the same, then start worrying. You're asking immature guys who are really shallow. Relationships are about so much more than height. Focus on your studies instead of this. Really, it's not something to worry about.

If you think about it, is it not better that you get to avoid these people that rely purely on height for their preferences? They're all closed-minded if they actually think tiny girls are better. I think it's a bit idk, creepy that so many guys just want tiny girlfriends.

The best way to get in a relationship is really by making friends. One day one of those friends might just get real close and something could happen?
But I assure you, there are going to be guys out there that don't care about height, so don't overthink it too much! I promise.

It is a mistake to blame your height on not finding a steady boyfriend. You could be 6 inches smaller, stunningly beautiful and still be alone. Be confident and stop making excuses. Try and meet boys in a place where is it easy to talk. No loud music. Maybe you have a hobby or interest or sports activity you could share with someone. Good luck.

I’m 17 years old and a topic that seems to be coming up a lot with girls is breast sizes. I’m 17 years old and I’m tall and skinny but I don’t have big breasts. Everybody’s always talking about an average breast size which everybody seems to be saying is a C cup and I’m only a B and it sucks because I feel like I have a good body but I don’t have big breasts and guys always like the girls with big breasts and I’m already skinny but I just need big breasts to make my body even more attractive and I wanna know if being a B cup is normal or not? I wanna know what other people think.

You're still a child tho, plenty of guys will like you just be patient and dw about it right now. There's nothing wrong with your breasts either, you're perfectly normal.

I agree with one of the previous posts. Your only 17, nothing to worry about as yet.
I'm shorter than you but still tall for a woman at 5'8".
Over the years I've had no problems, so theres nothing to suggest you will. X

Girl I've just turned 18 and I'm the same height as you and I think you are just friends with the wrong guys. In uni you are gonna find a crap load of guys into tall girls, there are loads. I know it gets tiring waiting but honestly just wait, it will happen soon. Otherwise you will find yourself jumping at the first guy who comes to u and end up in crap relationships. And you don't need a super model body.

You'll be fine. 17 isn't old. Many people only have their first real relationship at university.

Go after tall guys who aren't intimidated by your height - that way your 'supermodel body' isn't cancelled out by a fear of heights.

Tall guys generally have a lot of 'options' so you could make yourself stand out by approaching them rather than waiting for them to approach you.

I mean, welcome to the club I guess.

I think what you have to remember is relationships shouldn't be based on what you look like physically, of course, every guy/girl will have dream image of what they want their S/O to look like and for some guys it will be girls shorter than them because there's some sort of 'stereotype' (don't think that's the word...) of having a shorter girlfriend being the best thing ever etc.

We're all different and personally, any guy who doesn't like you because you're not 'the perfect girl with the right height or body size' is really not worth the time.

For me, I feel it should be based on personality because at the end of the day I'd much rather be 'too tall' or have a boyfriend that is the same size as me but has a great personality than have a guy that like's me because of my physical appearance but is completely toxic.

Also, speaking from being a 17-year-old girl myself and never having a boyfriend, at this point, life's too short to be worrying about why guys don't like you. There are plenty of fish in the sea and you have your whole life ahead of you so you don't need to rush! One day you'll find Mr Right but I wouldn't focus on it happening right now, maybe worry about exams and school and friends rather than why you don't have a boyfriend?

And remember, if they don't want to date you then it's their loss!

Height's not an insurmountable problem on it's own. Plenty of guys are attracted to tall girls, hence why companies make Porn featuring tall girls - they wouldn't do it if no-one wanted to watch it.

There's nothing wrong with being tall. Despite what you've been told on Snapchat, lots of guys genuinely don't care about height.
Everything you've said is focused on physical features. Most decent guys care far less about physical features and far more about personality, and you'll find that more so when you get to uni since guys are that bit more mature, and more interested in proper relationships than just getting a girlfriend almost for the sake of it.
Look after your body and keep yourself healthy, but apart from that, stop thinking about your physical appearance as a route to finding a boyfriend.
Focus on your studies, and work on improving your own self-confidence and self-belief as a person in general, because that is one thing that guys do find attractive.
