Average guy dating beautiful girl

We've all seen very tall girls hunched over, pulling awkwardly at their clothes, or generally looking hyper-aware of the fact that they're taller than most of the guys around them – and hyper-aware that most of the guys probably aren't comfortable with it.

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.

I don't go out of my way to stand out or wear things that attract attention, or a lot of makeup.

So I go for "pretty."""I would make models and actresses more diverse.

Our whole lives and self-esteem are defined by photoshopped images of one type of woman, and we end up feeling like shit for not looking like movie stars, when they are .0001 percent of the population.

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 don't really think about whether I'm beautiful or not.

I have nice skin and features and teeth I think, but overall, when you're really tall and not very thin there's an aspect of wanting to blend in.

A very common trope, particularly in animation and sitcoms, is for a woman to be far more attractive than her significant other, even when the husband does not have a prestigious, high-paying job.

In addition, the trope both reveals and helps maintain one of the most wide-spread cases of a Double Standard around with regards to acceptable levels of attractiveness for leading actors and actresses.

But that is visually very intimidating, so I don't do that usually.""Well, obviously it's all I've ever known, because I've been the tallest in class since the third grade, and almost always as tall as the boys. But in terms of practicality, it's great for reaching stuff and seeing over people and, like, when I traveled in Japan this past year, it was like I had some kind of superpower.
