Average guy dating beautiful girl
I'm on a dating site and I get A LOT of messages about my height in kind of weird, fetishy ways.
To learn more about what beauty means to tall girls, I spoke with my friend Cara* – who, at just around 6'1", fluctuates between a 10 and 12 US dress size – about the realities of living in her body.
She looks really confident in her surroundings, and doesn't have to worry about slouching or what clothes she wears all the time.
But at the same time, I'm sure that there are things she would change about herself, and she has other women she looks at as being beautiful.
I asked her six big questions about beauty and femininity, and got some brutal truths in response."I definitely feel like I have to go out of my way to be passive, like I'm not automatically perceived as feminine in the same way I would be if I were even a few inches shorter.
I make an effort to seem more feminine and less intimidating, and have even caught myself having a more high-pitched voice on first dates (and I ALWAYS wear flats on a first date, even if the guy is tall).I wish we could have women of all shapes and sizes and colors represented so that we could start to see that as normal, and not have to feel like there's something wrong with us if we don't fit this one small paradigm.
