My best friend is six-foot-one, and our friends call us the twin towers. Do you think that's distasteful?
No! I love tall girls. My best friend Jenna is five-eleven, and it's so much fun hanging out with her and other tall girls. It's much more natural. We maintain eye contact. It's really hard to do that with most girls — they're so short!
Why are tall ladies better in bed?
I think it has to do with confidence. Being tall, I walk everywhere with my back straight. You get used to owning the room. So I think when it comes to the bedroom, you're so used to being the center of attention it's like you're just supposed to be there.
It's a Friday night. You're going out and you want to look hot. Do you wear heels?
I personally don't wear heels, but that's because I have really small toes. I can't really walk in them. My little sister has long toes like a freakin' velociraptor, and she can walk in heels. If I could wear heels, I would.
Besides being able to reach the top shelf, what's the advantage to being tall?
Well, I'm an anomaly, because I like dating short dudes. Like, really short dudes. Like five-foot-six.
What's the rationale behind that?
They come up to my boobs. That's great. I don't understand why every girl wouldn't want guys who are little. I don't understand why that's not the norm. I'm very lucky that I happen to be six-one, because most guys can come up to that height.
Let's talk logistics. Is sex with a short guy more difficult?
No, not for me. It's super-easy.
I'm a tall girl who loves to wear tall heels. My girlfriends all say they feel overshadowed when we go out, and guys sometimes mistake me for a man in drag. Should I lose the platforms?
I think it depends on the occasion. If you're going out dancing and don't give a shit, and you just want to have a good time with your friends, definitely rock them. Knock yourself out. As long as you feels beautiful and comfortable, that's what counts. And I think your friends are insecure. They shouldn't give a shit what you wear. As long as you're happy, they should be happy.
I'm a small guy who's hopelessly in love with a woman almost a foot taller than I am. She's perfect for me, but the height difference weirds me out. What should I do?
I think that's your issue to get over, no pun intended. This stuff happens to me all the time. Guys get very intimidated and second-guess it.
Have you ever had guys who didn't want to date you because you're too tall for them?
It happens pretty frequently. And it's a shame, because I feel like they're the ones who are imposing the limitations. Like, I'm down for any kind of candy bar — I like the trick-or-treat sized, I like the fun-sized Snickers — but it really bums me out, because I'll meet a really great, intelligent guy, we'll click at every level, and I'll see his insecurity get in the way. He's missing out! But I'll go find another dude who's okay with it.
If you could miraculously wake up tomorrow morning and be six inches shorter without being terribly deformed, would you do it?
Never. I can't imagine it.
