Okay.. I don't normally do 'MyTakes', but this is my first attempt.
So, in relationships height is a very talked about topic. To some people it doesn't matter, to others it plays a key role. People are always talking about how tall they are and how tall they would prefer their partners to be.
I can vouch, and I'm sure you all can too. There's millions of questions on here about people's height range, people asking whether they're datable based on their height. Different counties have different averages in height for men and women. The rough average for man is around 5'10 (177cm) and for a woman it's around 5'6 (167cm). It's believed that the Netherlands (Holland) is regarded the country with the highest average height. Countries in the East, like China is rumored to have a lower average height. While it is true that people's height is usually linked to genetics, this isn't always the case.
Height is often linked to depression and sadness, unfortunately once you're fully developed you're going to stay that height for the rest of your days. Unless you can get miracle grow for people. (Which doesn't affect your health)
If I've learnt anything in my days; short men and tall women have it the worst in the relationships area. Statistics show that the majority of men prefer shorter women <5'6, and the majority of women prefer taller men 5'8>. Thus leaving the minority of the two collectives with less luck. (usually..)
People seem to overlook the turning down of people because they're too short or too tall. But really, it can be considered offensive. If you were to turn someone down for their weight, you would be seen as shallow and rude. Weight is something that can be changed with effort. But, people can't magically shoot up or down.
I recently met a person who was 7'4, yes, seven foot four. He told me he was depressed from being so tall; people would always stare at him, shoes and clothes wouldn't fit him, nothing was pre-made for him. He had to get every thing in 'Extra Extra Extra Large'. He told me what bothered him the most.. When people were to speak to him their first quote would be ''Wow, you're so tall!'' He said to me literally everyone says that to him, and that it gets under his skin. So, even being tall isn't the best thing. Most people, like myself would prefer moderation. Sometimes being 'average' is the best thing.
Coming from a shorter person myself; I can vouch for no success in the relationship department. But.. the reality of it is this is who you are. You can't alter your height.
