Is that how it goes?
My hands are just slightly shorter than the posters and I wear size 10.5 for shoes. (mens)

I am female and also have long fingers, not big hands. Everyone always compliments me on how long my fingers are and no guy has ever complained. As long as your hands aren't thick and calloused and hairy, I think you're ok.

People don't come up to me and say anything. Although I worked as a cashier over the summer and I did have several people mention something about the size of my hands.

My feet aren't big actually so I don't think that would work.

My boyfriend loves my hands because they are working hands and he finds them very expressive.
Unfortunately I don't really put them to good use, but I have heard countless times that I should learn to play the pianno. The only problem with that is I don't really have an ear for music.

One trick I can do with my hands is easily palm a basketball, I have been able to do this since I was 11. But I don't have the height, or coordination to play.

No. Size 6. I do have long arms, but I think that just might be because my hands are so long.

I don't really get the compliments on the long fingers, I get the, "oh my god your hands are so big!" I actually had one girl (who I didn't really know) grab my hand and compare her middle finger to my pinky, my pinky was longer and she got a great big kick out of it. On top of that she was like 5'10" or so.

be proud!!!
My ring size is a 6, even though my fingers do look quite skinny. My wrist is about 5" around.

It also reminded me of one of my aunts who is less than 5' tall... size 0, but wears an 8-1/2 shoe... very large for her petite size!

She always handles it with humor. Her line is always, "I'd be really tall if I didn't have so much turned under!"
It's funny because my older sister is 5'1" (an inch shorter than me) and wears an 8 (two sized bigger than mine). Yet her entire hand almost fits in my palm

You are right, I should show off my hands. My hands do look much better with polish, I just think it also draws more attention to them.

Are you guys turned off by a woman with big hands? Any other women with this problem? I like to keep my nails painted but I also don't want to bring attention to my hands.
Did u happen to see that episode of Jerry Seinfeld (spelling?) where he was dating this woman with big hands? It was a total turn off -he said she had "man hands." It was very funny. Of course he stopped dating her. I have big hands for a woman. I don't think it is a turn off. At least I have not had anyone complain. However sometimes I am self-conscious about my hands. I think we all have things we would like to change about our bodies. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". One man's turn-off is another man's turn-on
