Being tall certainly helps if you're a man. You're in better standing to land women, more likely to be promoted, etc. That's not to say shorter guys can't be successful, but they generally have to work harder at it to make it happen. Being very tall as a woman, not so much. A very tall girl will find it much harder to find guys that will hit on them, plus they can't find many guys taller than they are.
I am just slightly above average height, so I am pretty happy with it; taller people must really be uncomfortable in airline seats, as I can barely stand them, while shorter people have trouble seeing in crowds (nice to be considerably taller than the average Japanese citizen when on the subway in Tokyo). On the other hand, I still don't get any girls.
A Load of cobblers mate, My wife is 4.11 and I would not have her any other way, I am 5.9 and happy who I am, we are all different for a reason, we are not clones or we would be bonking each others wife husband etc, your you, enjoy it.
tall people want to beshort and short people want to be tall. being tall does have the advantages and disadvantages. yes you can reach things and have a higher chance of getting hired for a job compared to a shorter person its hard to find a car you can fit in comfortably and you are kinda klutzy and have to grow into your height
