I have extra large hands, or I should say long. They aren't man-like, but they are often as big or bigger than most men's hands. It makes me feel like an amazon even though I am only 5 foot 2 inches.

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.

Most of the time our imperfections are magnified in our minds. I wouldn't be surprised if you were being overly critical of yourself.

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.

Oh... I had a different idea of what you are talking about. I was thinking "man" hands. If you mean just large but ?slender then I think it is completely fine. In fact I would think it is sexy, as long as they are not man hand (i.e. thick).

You are right that I might be magnifying it in my mind. But they are bigger than ALL of my friend's hands, and yet I am only 5 foot 2.

They aren't "man" like, in that they are thick, just long. My hand measures 7 3/4 inches long.

Let me let you in on a little secret. No one cares about your hands. Theyre too busy worrying about whether you noticed their big nose/butt/feet etc.

Last edited by Cecilia_Rose; 11-05-2007 at 11:19 AM.. Reason: I suppose if theyre really large you COULD give some guy a complex if he thought his Willy was extra small.

Dannnnngggg! I thought some guys I know had big hands! But ya cant just walk up to them and ask them to let me measure their hands, that might seem a bit awkward, lol. I think generally a guy with big hands have big feet too, so if a person were into calculous, they could probably do the numbers and a size 13 or 14 foot would equal a 7 or 8 inch hand? Is that how it goes?

i hope this is not one of those trick questions that women sometimes ask me like how do i look in this dress.
big hands big feet adams apple are all signs that i need to be sure i am not dating a guy. sorry been livin in the big city a long time. however, you could be the worlds best person and and attractive in many ways, despite large hands. the topic would never never even come up because the person shines thru. your true colors shine thru. trust me i would be lookin for that good heart from the get go.

With hands like yours, do you play a musical instrument or are you artistic? With hands like those you could be a great pianist! If not, take some lessons. That way, if someone does comment on your hands, you can tell then that you are a musician. Don't hide your hands, use them!!

My boyfriend loves my hands because they are working hands and he finds them very expressive.

I am definitely turned off by big hands. I don't know why.
