Talking to a very tall person.

I am not very tall - just 5'4". When I have to talk to a very tall person i have to look high. When the person is very tall, it feels somewhat awkward. Have you ever been in such a position? What about you?

I am a tall person i am 6 feet and 1 inch tall. I feel very discomfort because of that height. When i go to buy a shirt or a trouser my size is very difficult to get so i always go for a stiched clothes. Every friend will complaint that they have to lift up their head to talk to me. it's really a curse to be over height or to be very short.

Hi saichandtalluti, I was thinking it would have been nice if I was tall like you. But you too are not comfortable with your situation in spite of being so tall. Then both of us are in the same boat.But we are not to opt for stitched one, we can buy ready made ones easily. Thanks and good luck

I do have some friends who are quite tall. I do feel awkward especially when one of my closest friends who is a girl, she is at least 5-6cm taller than me. I feel very weird and awkward whenever talking to her. That is why I always try to stand a short distance away during our conversation.

Hello arkadeb. I have such an experience of talking to a very tall person. There used to be a student in our school who was 2 meters tall. One day I saw him and was very happy to walk over to talk to him for a little while. It made me look very small to stand before him talking to him. To me, he is like a giant while I am a ...hehehe

I'm a small person, i'm only about 157 cm tall (5"2 or 5"3 i think) and am often in such a position. My friends are all bigger than me but it's not so bad if the person is skinny haha. I also try to keep a distance while talking to a tall person so i don't have to tilt my head too much and look awkward. I'm a girl so it's not too bad but i look younger than my age as well so sometimes i feel like a kid :P

HI Arka I am a short person as well and I used to feel this way until a few years ago. But now, I have grown and have been trying to look beyond this. I agree, sometimes its inconvenient but we can manage. And people have bow down to talk to us, don't they!?
