@SarahAnne: Sorry about my silly terminology!!! I can't help it! :-)
Yes, I can guarantee you that they glance at you because you are a pretty tall gal, which is not a bad thing, on the contrary it is a very attractive feature: men love tall women.
That said, I personally don't think height is that important, at all, I am 5'8"-5'9" myself, therefore definitely not short, more important is how you carry yourself: you can be 5'5" and look clumsy and graceless, and you can be 6'2" and be like a beautiful gazelle. I saw a woman in a store, last week, who was at least 6'2" and her friend, who was with her, was just about as tall as I am. Well, people were looking at her, obviously, since she was pretty tall, but, nonetheless, she had a way about her that was very nice and fluid. I don't know you in person, but from the pictures you have posted I can tell that you have a lot of grace and style. You will be just fine, just get used to being looked at: people love tall women, especially women themselves. Also, just a tip, don't only wear flats: you will appear to be taller than you are, rather wear low heels. :-) Talking about shoes, what is your shoe size? And how is your voice? Congrats again and talk to you soon, you beautiful princess! PS Your wife seems to be great at embracing your true self: how did you manage that?
