16 problems you'll only understand if you're a tall girl

“Do you play basketball?”

1. You’re often taller than the guys

Your Debs date *may* have had to stand on a Golden Pages to get in your photo.

2. And you’ve had to put up with this sort of guff since day one

“I couldn’t go out with a girl who was taller than me.”

Don’t flatter yourself, mate. You were never in the running.

3. People are constantly at you about how you “can’t” wear heels

YES, I CAN. WATCH ME.

4. Finding jeans that don’t brush against your ankles is a neverending struggle

5. You’ve been asked countless times if you play basketball

“Yes, I play with LeBron James.”

6. Trying to find a knee-length skirt for school was damn near impossible

“I’m not rolling it up, I swear.”

7. You really did seem to shoot up overnight

8. So much so that some of your relative still remark on how tall you’ve gotten

“Are you getting taller?” “No, I don’t think people can still grow at 27.”

9. You’re frankly disgusted that you *haven’t* been approached by a model scout

“I could totally be America’s Next Top Model.”

10. You can never stretch out in the bath

11. And public transport is hard

Spare a thought for all the gals struggling with tight legroom.

12. Shaving your legs is beyond time-consuming

13. And sometimes you just cannot be arsed

Ain't no shame in my tall girl game 😂 #tallgirlproblems #ownit #leghairdontcare

14. Your feet hanging out over the edge of the bed is just a fact of life

15. You suffer from Floating Head Syndrome in group photos

:(

16. For all its problems, though… being tall is still pretty damn cool
