At what height do you begin to call someone 'short'?

Is it anything below 5' or maybe 6'?

What height is the cut off point for you between short and average?

    • 5'7? how is that possible when the average height for a woman is 5'5.

    • Show All
    • I guess that makes more sense.

      Although 5'8 for a woman would be considered tall.

    • ugh I know. I just wanna be average height really bad so this what I tell myself.

  • there is no certain definition/standard to call someone short. just like near and far.

    if you say a man is considered short if he is at least 5'8 then 5'81 is not considered short... but that doesn't make much difference.

    5'8 feet = 1.76784 meters = short

    then

    1.77 meters = not short ?

    do 1.77 and 1.76784 make much difference?

  • Gosh, I don't even know the exact measurements on this. He definitely has to be taller than me. Tall guys really make me swoon, I just think wow, my knees are knocking and this guy is so tall and I just want to throw my arms around this really tall guy. He has blond hair and blue eyes and he is just the hottest guy ever. Ever. Wow, tall guys are the best.

  • Depends on the people around. I don't have a certain height I attribute to tallness or shortness. I'm 6'1 and If I'm in a room full of guys who are 5'8 I'd consider my self tall, but if I was in an NBA change room I'd consider myself short
