Tall Girl Problems

I'm 5'9", which isn't really that tall, but it definitely seems to be at the higher end of the spectrum for girls.  I had one girlfriend back in Florida who was actually a little bit taller than me and just standing next to her, it felt like I had found a kindred spirit! (not to mention she was wicked funny as well!)  And I guess the bigger part of my problem is, most of my height is leg.  I have a short torso and monster long legs. It becomes an issue in a few key situations: wearing heels on a date (don't want to tower over the guy), finding a seat with decent legroom on the airplane (I always shoot for the exit row), buying pants (thank god J. Crew has longer lengths that fit me perfectly), I can't fit in a bathtub (I start drooling when I see those 2-3 people tubs that I might actually fit in...),  ...  I'm probably a bit more sensitive about it lately too because 1. the itty-bitty, petite secretary at work stood next to me during one of my first days here, looked up at me and said "Good God, you're tall!" and it's kinda stuck with me and 2. I'm trying out online dating and I'm painfully aware of the number of cool guys that are inches shorter than me and who I'm too insecure to date.  Anyway, I just found this blog called Tall Girl Problems that I'm totally relating too...


There's a goldmine of these sayings on that site!  More to come, I'm sure...
