How to talk to tall people

Fellow monkeys, I'm a particularly short one, 5'3 to be exact and most other people tower me. What does social protocol dictate, do I angle my head and maintain eye contact for the duration of the conversation if we're talking standing.

How about if we're walking? That's another story. Do I just periodically look up and otherwise just keep walking?

I swear this isn't a troll

Develop a napoleon complex. I respect extra short guys as an extra tall guy cuz they usually compensate by being extra confident or extra competent at something.
