Tall Order: How to navigate the unique challenges tall women face in relationships with themselves and others

Whether you're a tall woman looking for love, or just looking to strengthen the relationships you already have, this post is for you. So, let's dive in!

Being tall is amazing...but it can also come with its own set of challenges. These challenges can often extend beyond just finding clothing and shoes that fit. It can be challenging to navigate the world and create meaningful relationships with both ourselves and others when society often has a narrow view of what is considered "normal" when it comes to physical appearance.

   Feeling different can make it difficult to feel comfortable in our own skin. Many tall women report feeling like they stand out and are constantly being stared at. This can lead to avoiding social settings, denying oneself of creating meaningful relationships, applying for the dream job and even looking for love on a dating site. However, with a little bit of understanding and self-awareness, we can learn to embrace our height, feel more confident and build fulfilling relationships.


It’s important to remember that you are not alone and that your height is just one part of who you are. Surrounding yourself with people who accept and value you, practicing self-love and focusing on the things that make you unique and special will certainly help you when it comes to building deeper connections with others…and with yourself.

Here are a few tips to help you navigate the unique challenges you may face from being a tall woman:

Embrace your height: Instead of trying to hide your height, embrace it and be proud of it. Stand tall and confident and don't be afraid to take up space. This can help you to feel more comfortable in your own skin and to project confidence in social situations.
