Starting from low to high your tuning should be EADGBe.

Depending on what gauge the strings are and the scale length of the guitar it might be loose. Also make sure you're not tuning it an octave lower. Play the 5th fret of you low E and it should match your A string.

It should feel a lot like your A string in terms of tightness but it might just be a light gauge string set. Just go with your tuner and as long as the string doesn't sound like mud or feel like there's too much tension on it then you're good.

How old are the strings?

As everyone else said, you may just be tuning your E string an octave lower or it's probably just how light the string gauge is on your guitar.

If you wouldn't mind, maybe you can post a picture of you pulling up on both the (thick) E and A strings simultaneously. The tightness of each should be similar. Or, for us to make the diagnosis easier, maybe you can take a video (even if it's from your phone) and show us the tuning of your guitar.

so what should i take a picture at?


Just take a pic of how much slack is on both your E and A strings. They should be roughly equal.
