Did you see the Seinfeld episode about...

I think you're just making a mountain out of a mole hill.

I'd say that any man who thinks your hands are too big is the one with the problem, not you.

If a man is turned off because of the length of your fingers - so be it. You can choose a far better person to be with.
Exactly. And I know how you feel as I also have longer hands. Since women are generally more slender, you'd be surprised to find out just how many women have longer fingers than guys.

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
I have seen that Seinfeld episode and luckily for me my hands don't look like "man hands", they are just as big as men's hands.

I kind of doubt that there are very many men that are turned-on by a girl with bigger hands than theirs though...

My hands are certainly more slender than guys hands, I have never heard (or seen) any other women that have longer hands than guys except for myself. But I suppose I am not going around measuring hands with everyone either.

You know Hailey, I've been doing a lot of random thinking about this, and the posters are really helping a great deal, don't let big hands mock your self esteem in any way....

Think of all the wonderful things you can DO with big hands! You can (as mentioned above) have much greater skill with musical instruments due to reaching farther without straining your joints and muscles, you probably have no problem whatsoever with opening your own jar of mayo and don't have to do that "damsel in distress thing" about having to ask a man to do it for you , change spare tires (fighting with that lugnut thing), stop leaky faucet leaks with a big strong wrench, a better grip on groceries when your juggling 7 or 8 bags at a time... bigger handfuls of popcorn in one take.. you'd probably beat the average female at handshaking, armwrestling, tug o' war, the possibilities are endless! lol

I know one friend inparticular that comes to mind, that was actually "complaining" about his girl's hands being so small, yes it's cute and dainty and feminine... but he said during certain intimate moments, he felt like a pedophile of sorts, because her hands looked so young and tiny, like a child's!! So chin up luv, there's good and bad to everything. They're just hands!

Something tells me you won't since someone made a point to request it.
