How do you feel about your height?

-Would you rather be the same height you are now, taller or shorter? why?
-Has your height ever given you negative feelings?

I felt like I wasn't feminine or cute because I was too tall for a woman... I am 5'8. I felt like men didn't notice me because I was too tall and they wanted a cute, little girlfriend they could protect, yet, I wasn't tall enough to be considered glamorous or super model material... like technically, they take girls starting my height, but they would have to be super gorgeous. I guess with the height thing, its hard to find guys that will date women that are as tall, or taller than them. I have had at least 2 shorter guys who seemed to fancy me though (long, long time ago). Just felt like I physically took up too much space. A little while ago, I realised I will always take up about the same amount of physical room, because if I stretch out my arms, and spin, I will occupy about the same amount of space. Okay, so I'm weird, haha.

    Like I was telling estrogen estates today, you always want an extra inch

    I am 5' 3", I've always desired; to be 5' 6" mainly because I like the ½, of a foot; instead of ¼ or ¾! I don't care, concerning the height itself!

    I am 6 foot 4 and sometimes it’s hard for me to see short girls because my neck is permanently in a neck brace and I bend my knees for no one

    I stand at 5'3.75". Some longer legs would come in handy when needing to reach for things off the second shelves in my kitchen. I have a step stool I carry around the house.

    Also just to be able to run (I am a runner) in some longer lean legs once to see what that feels like. That's all.

    I am 5'2". It is very frustrating to not be able to reach shelves in the kitchen, hall, or closet! I would like at least 2 more inches and a bit longer arms. I previously lived in a house that we had built with a large kitchen and many low shelves. We moved and now have a galley style kitchen and even with a step stool I cannot reach the highest shelves. I need to use a step stool for all the shelves except for the lowest set.

    Boy do we have a guy for you, he loves tallish girls. How do you feel about living in heels?

    Hahahaha no. I saw ALL of his threads. Hilarious, but a total trainwreck. Next you are going to tell me to go after that young guy that was posting about his old lady fetish.

    Only if you're an "elder" under 43 :lol:

    I feel like I should have been 5'8" but I'm 5'6" because of stunted growth from undiagnosed an untreated hypothyroidism.

    I am only 5'6" and managed to do pretty well at competitive sports, though probably could have gone further if I was a little bigger. In Uni the next smallest guy trying our from running back had 2-3" on me and 30lbs.

    Also for dating, if I was 5'10" or so I am sure some women that overlooked me (pun intended) would have dated me. that said, I have dated 3-4 women taller than me (from 5'7" to 5'10" the 5'10" one for just under 4 years) and a few others my height!
