How tall are you and how do you FEEL about it?

There have been plenty of height questions on G@G but I am still curious. A) To know in general and B) Because everyone seems to have mixed feelings about how tall they are. And I wanna know whatcha feel and why.

So how tall are you and how do you feel about being as tall as you are?

by the way I'm 5'2" and I kinda like it because people assume they can mess with me. Lol. But then again things are hard to reach so...

  • 5'10"

    I guess height for men is like boobs are for girls, only there's no easy and relatively quick and safe surgery for guys to increase their height (they're sort of just stuck with life's dice roll).

    I have some good looking guy friends that are over 6' tall. It's a strange dynamic, because I'm older and less the social group, but they're taller. There are moments where I wish I was taller. I guess we all wish we were "ER." Better, smarter, wealthier, prettier, etc. Oh well.

    What I regret the most is putting stress on my bone plates as I was growing up. One of my dad's friends was bipolar and went on medication. He then gave my dad a full set of professional chrome free weights. It literally almost completely filled up the basement. That was my dad's mistake for taking them (that's his cryptonite, he can't say "no" to free shit).

    At 16, I started lifting, almost religiously. I fell in love with my own body. Everyone (including my parents) thought I was on steroids. What I didn't realize is that all that stress on the bones hindered my bone development. You can always work out and get big after you're 25. But you can't do anything to get taller after 25.

    I didn't have anyone like an older brother to tell me that or stress that to me as a kid. So, now I'm stuck with my short 5'10" self.

  • I'm 6'2" (188cm). It's a convenient height to be. Except for small cars and airplane lavatories, it's not so tall as to be inconvenient. In the USA where I live, I'm in the 94th percentile for height, so I'm taller than the vast majority of people. I like that, but what's weird about it is… when someone is taller than me, I REALLY notice it. An important aspect of height for a lot of people seems to be compatibility with a partner. In that regard, I think women who are about my height are very attractive, but, of course, it's also cool to hug a lover who can rest her head on my chest.

  • I am 5' 9". The average height for an adult Caucasian male is 5' 9.7". I have had two girls refuse to date me because I am shorter than them and I think that attitude blows. I seem to date more girls who are petite, like 5' 0" - 5' 2", but I really don't care whether a girl is taller than me. It is a completely 100% non-issue in my book.

  • am not familiar with the Feet/inch but some guy told am 6,1 (185 cm tall).
    I find it a little bit over average compared to other people. I feel nothing about it, i mean sure i help my mom to reach things for her, my aunt too, but nothing more special about it. Other wise
    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
    I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
    And a six four Impala
    :P

  • I'm 5'9" of pure power and I'm ok with my height. The reason why I'm only ok with it is because I'm not really considered short, but I'm not tall either.

    Personally, I wish I was at least 6' :)

  • I'm about five foot ten, and I'm fine with that. Most because I'm still just 16 and haven't stopped growing yet.
    I would be mildly disappointed if I stopped growing.
    At least I'm still already taller than the rest of family, who are Greek and I am the youngest of.

  • I'm 6'1" I feel good about it. I wouldn't mind either way if I was taller or shorter. If I could make be a few inches taller, I'd feel pretty good. I don't feel I need to be 7' or taller. Being taller isn't all that great.

  • I'm 5'9 and don't really like it. I am short enough that men/women can still view me as short/inferior but not short enough that anyone would ever feel sympathy towards me about it.

    I wish I could be 6ft, thats the best height in my opinion.

  • I'm about a quarter inch shy of 5'9" and until the last year or so, It's always been an issue for me. I get complements on my legs, but I never saw myself that way.

    I'm taller than almost all of my friends, so I would always slouch down for group pics on purpose. I'm finally starting to own it just in the last year like i said.

  • I'm 5'3/162 and I really wish I were taller. All my close friends are almost 6'/180 and it's such an inconvenience. The have these long beautiful legs and when they wear heels I look like a midget next to them T_T. And i usually need to jog to keep up. Also tall people can eat more without gaining weigh, super unfair if you ask me.

  • 5'11 but it's pretty standard in my country. (Tallest people in the world, folks)

    I tend to be taller than every guy who I have been in a relationship with, but as long as they don't care I don't care either. Things are easy to reach and I look ridiculous in heels, which is why I love to wear them.

    It's just slightly above average, so many men are still taller than me. I'm just wondering why I'm shorter than both of my parents :/ my Mom is an inch taller, I think 5'7" would've been ideal.
