You are talking about consensual reality. Those things happen because it is the generally accepted outcome of such an encounter. And there may be someone out there who will see you as short, fat and bald someday. Some people's perception can be twisted and some can bend the rules of physical reality. It is just programming after all.
For instance, I have fallen in love a few times and it's really cool to have that kind of reality. But I also know just what that reality consists of and it is nothing mystical even though it may seem miraculous to some.

Everything else is a result of how our brains interpret what we experience, but that does not make any event we perceive unreal.
I can see that a few people would get to thinking too much and get lost in thoughts long enough to think they really don't exist and stuff, though.
BTW, I am tall for a female, athletically slim, have a full head of hair, and I was born in northern Manitoba.
