  • To me that's short. Really anything below 6'. I'm 5'9 which is taller for a woman, but think that 5'9 is on the shorter side for men. Men have been getting shorter though I've noticed. Not necessarily a bad thing, though.

    • Uh, what? 5'9 is the average height for a western male in developed countries. 6'0 is the 85th percentile of height (less than 15% of men are 6'0 or taller).

    • I am tall, ha. I model so it works out swimmingly. 5'9 being average for western men makes sense. Women usually average around 5'5 it seems, so it works out perfectly for you guys. I haven't had a tough time meeting men taller than me, but now that I think about it taller men are becoming few and far between.

    • Also to TheSpartan, short *to me*

  • Not really. In the U. S. it's only an inch shorter than the national average.

  • 5'9 is the average height of males in almost every western nation--including the U. S.

    Okay, technically it is 5'9.5, but you're only half an inch shorter than the average.
