12 Relationship Secrets Tall Guys Won't Tell You

Much as you try, gifts are never the right size.

  1. They secretly hate it when you borrow their car. 

    For those who are blessed (cursed?) with an exceptional number of inches to their body, getting the driver’s seat into a comfortable configuration is an ordeal. If his car doesn’t let him store his optimal seat adjustments, having someone return the car with the seat so far up he can’t get back in is hell on earth. Even if that someone is you.
  2. They can (and do) keep tabs on you in a crowded room. 

    Plus, you can always find them. They always know what’s happening at concerts, clubs, and parties. If you need to know where anyone is at any given time, just go to them. They also make for a good human landmark if you and your friends get split up. Just maybe don't actually refer to them as a “human landmark.”
  3. The constant “why don’t you play basketball?” jokes get old fast. 

    Just so you know.
  4. Movie and concert dates are a self-conscious tall person’s nightmare. 

    He can’t go anywhere without worrying that he’s going to block someone’s view. He either needs to stand in the back or slouch down in his seat.
  5. He can’t fit into tiny beds, especially if he has to share them. 

    Going back to your place to fool around probably means he’s not going to get a lot of sleep.
  6. Airplane legroom is basically nonexistent. 

    Going on trips is a nightmare (unless he wants to shell out for first class). He might as well get shoved in a box and shipped to his destination. It’d be just as cramped.
  7. He’s always being asked to get things out of reach. 

    He’s squishing spiders up in the corners of the ceiling, and always getting down the pots and pans you need constantly but for some reason insist on storing on a shelf you can’t reach.
  8. Being tall winds up being his defining characteristic.

    It’s disheartening when everything he has going for him gets trounced by the fact that he’s “tall” any time he comes up in conversation.
  9. Simple things like putting his arm around you or holding hands become awkward. 

    He has to hunch over to make any of it work.
  10. Gifts are never the right size. 

    People always overestimate his size to the point where it’s almost offensive. Basically, holiday shopping for him might be a nightmare for you.
  11. Having sex with someone considerably shorter means his chest is in their face. 

    It also means things might not line up quite right in other positions, like doggy style.
  12. Sharing a bed with a shorter person means multiple blankets are required.


    It’s impossible to have a single blanket cover the cold feet of both parties, unless one of those parties happens to own a giant blanket.
