Being tall and thin isn't all it's cracked up to be. From your style to your dating life to sex, there are tons of #firstworldprobs lanky queer men have to deal with on an everyday basis. 

For example:

1. By basic gay standard, you’re too tall to be a bottom...Tall12. ...but too skinny to be a top.Tall23. Your jeans are never skinny enough...

4. ...and never long enough.Tall35. And don’t even think about finding a slim dress shirt with sleeves that reach your wrists.Tall46. “Do you play Basketball?” is a very common question in your life.Tall57. Cuddling is significantly harder with your boney body.Tall68. People always ask if you've had anything to eat. *rolls eyes*

9. “Wow, how tall are you?” is how every conversation starts.Tall710. Trying to gain wait can be SUPER hard...

11. ...even though you keep trying to bulk. (Protein, bro.)Tall812. Hugging someone not as tall as you can get really awakward, really quick.Tall913. You love other tall men, but tall men usually love small men.Tall1514. And if you ever decide to dress in drag, you’re definitely not making it through the doorway in heels.

15. The shower head is never high enough.Tall1116. Having sex with your partner standing up is probably not going to line up very well.Tall1217. Relatives constantly remind you of how little you used to be.

18. And even worse, relatives ask you candidly if you’re "manorexic."tall1319. You love watches, but they look like wall clocks on your skinny wrists.

20. And although having a rounded butt is a major beauty standard in the gay community, you unfortunately don’t have one.Tall14
