IF - Tall by FionaCreates IF - Tall by FionaCreates
Illustration Friday - Tall

The entire industry of love is convinced that the girl must always be shorter than the guy. Romcoms, Drama, Action, Video Games, Novels, Photographs, Illustrations, Dancing… the girl is either close in height (but still shorter) or much shorter.

Well there are plenty of tall girls out there, and even if as a girl you do become comfortable with your Amazonian height the likelihood of finding a guy who underneath it all is comfortable with being shorter than you is slim. i advocate more hetero pairings with tall girls.

Man I would LOVE to date a girl who would be my height (190cm), short is cute but I think a tall woman is quite attractive.

We'd go stomping through all the little people's would be hype!

The idea of a tall girl isn't mine! Make away!

Haha I know that already, I just thought I might make a very similar one to you. It would be nice to have a series of different couples! :)

This is so cute! I really like this one, DV is filled with pictures of really short girls. There should be really tall girls too! :D

I love this illustration! I'm 6 feet tall and my boyfriend is 5'9" and loves when I wear heels haha

yeah, it's something we don't see often, or the girl is always not wearing heels on purpose (not cos she likes flats). I had been moaning about this then I read the Game of Thrones books and discovered Brienne and while it's not an overt romance it's nice to see a tall girl in a role and a guy who doesn't seem to care much about it.

i agree, tall short, bustly not bustly, all that matters is what on the inside.

Great art!

I can actually relate to this. As an average Asian (5'7") living in Switzerland where the females are more or less my height, it's sometimes frustrating to find a girl who isn't looking for a guy who's at least 5'10". Thankfully, I found a nice girl who likes me for who I am and who isn't bothered that I'm about two inches shorter than her. :)

How tall are you? If you don't mind my asking.

I'm 6 foot. But I'm also not straight so this isn't much of a problem for me in the blokes dpt but I have many tall straight friends who get very pissed off that shorter guys start to dictate to them "you can't wear heels you'll tower over me" and shit like that. What if a girl wants to wear heels? (And it's not just guys who say that shit of course.)

I think part of the issue as well is tall girls are still girls who are innundated with stuff from childhood telling you that your guy should be taller than you, so there's some insecurity there as well that her guy isn't what society tells you he should be. Not just that he's insecure his girl is taller than him.

Though I have a friend who's getting married and her husband to be is the same height as her, and she's decided to wear flat shoes for the wedding since she's now like "I have no pressure to wear heels, I can wear flat shoes and be happy and not have sore feet!" I think there's pressure on the short girls too to wear the heels. So much stupid social pressure on all the people not just the ones who don't fit the norm.

I'm glad you found a nice girl though :D
