Without shoes, I'm 5'8" on a tall day. As of late, I've been smitten with this lass that started showing up to the socials. I think she's a little over an inch, maybe two inches, taller than me without shoes. *warm thoughts * Honestly, her biggest issue is being comfortable with being tall and standing out. It's like there's a mental block that keeps her from owning every inch of her lovely height. I have a bit of anecdotal evidence to support this. Last social we were sharing a tango and I teased her that it was finally time to stretch those long legs out. Her response was, "Oh great! And I try so hard to hide them." There was a hint of seriousness that explains her reluctance to lift her posture. I think with a bit of coaxing she'll be gliding in no time. That smile and those eyes are all the motivation I need to keep chipping away... Did I mention I was smitten?
