Life of a Big & Tall Man Posted on Wed, Mar 07, 2012 00:00
As a big man (6'3"-260), I've viewed my size as a double-edged sword. On the positive side, I used it to play college football, track and earn my bachelor's in business administration. The 'downside' is that people can't see past the size to get to know the man. It became annoying in college when other students would ask me "What sport you play?" as opposed to "What's your major?" Plus, I had a very hard time feeling comfortable in my own skin, especially on the dating scene. Either I was ignored or approached, but I wondered if it was because I was an athlete or because who I am as a man. Now in my early 40's, I still wrestle with the challenges of being a big man, but it has gotten easier. I sometimes feel the need to isolate myself because I don't feel as confident or out of place. Maybe I'm still that "ugly duckling" from high school who used sports as a means to not deal with the social aspects of life. Now what do I do?
