Ask any tall girl, and she will tell you that going out can get awkward. Whether it's your heels that make you the height of a professional basketball player, guys who come to your shoulder, or the perpetual squat you hold to talk to people, being tall comes with its fair share of uncomfortable situations. Yes, we love being tall — for the style advantages [1] alone — but it's hard not to squirm when you have to lean down to talk to a guy. Keep scrolling to see if you (or any of your tall friends) have ever experienced any of these things — and maybe think twice when you set your tall friend up with a shorter guy!
