A tall girl's love letter
To the one that fell for me,
When mum kept ranting about how difficult it would be to get me married, I always thought someone out there is waiting to be mine. I'm glad that I met you. And even more that you've become mine. I'm sure that we are going to be very romantic and will have those cute moments. But then, the moment you know you've fallen for me, stuff all your ideas about having a conventional love life in a huge as fuck bag and throw it somewhere far away. Our romance will never work that way baby.
Congrats first, because you've won without a competition. Nobody hits on a tall girl. I still wonder why it is that we only inspire older sister or boss lady vibes. Tall girls can be childish, cute and bubbly. Understand people.
On the brighter side, you needn't bend down to look me in the eyes. We can look at each other just like that and it's gonna be eye to eye. We can take turns in taking selfies, and no one's calling you a 'selfie stick'.
But, get ready to sacrifice those aisle seats in buses and movie theatres because, even my knees will bang against the front seat honey. I'm never gonna look cute in your shirts. I wonder if they'd be small for me. Neither will I drown inside your hoodie. However, I might borrow your shoes from time to time. Get ready to spend extra shopping hours darling, it's as rare as an unicorn that I find the perfect match. I know. I found you. But clothes baby, are more complicated. I'm not that short chick who's only as tall as your waist, that when walking side by side you can wrap your hands around my shoulders. When we walk with each other, our shoulders will brush each other and will be almost in level and you'll have to feel proud about me. I can never give you those compact hugs where I can fit inside you like a puzzle piece and that my head against your chest thing is not happening. And in no way are you stopping me from wearing my pretty little 3 inch heels only because I'm gonna look taller than you.
But you know what baby, I can give you a shave effortlessly, because I've got longer hands too. I can understand the trouble that you'd face in normal sized beds, where the feet will be left hanging out hopelessly. I'll share that trouble with you darling. When you feel low and need a shoulder to cry on, or when you're sleepy and need a shoulder to doze off, you know that I can lend you one without hurting your back and not causing you neck stiffness.
Finally, when our magical moment happens, you'll never have to lean in to kiss me. Remember my lips will be right there waiting for yours. I'll never have to be on my toes to reach you. It's not gonna look filmy. Nonetheless I'm sure it is going to be as special as it will always have been.
Not everyone gets a girlfriend as tall as themselves. So, count yourself lucky to have me. Hoping that you're as tall as me.
Waiting for you,
Your Tall As Fuck Girlfriend.
