Also, when I met Grim... and Craster on Saturday night, after I had been to talk to someone else and come back:

Me: "You are the first people I've met off the internet who haven't commented that they thought I'd be taller. I had that again at the Cardiff meet."
Craster: "Actually, we were just saying that before you came back."

So, there you go. I type and speak taller than I actually am. Or something.

5'9 13 stone.

I'm kinda stocky but I've become a bit wibbly since the winter kicked in. Pah.

Image

I did lose 2 stone a couple of years back when the wife left (didn't eat for a couple of weeks.. Silly me) and looked like this (I'm on the left of course, unless I suddenly became a MILF) Everyone said I looked ill.

Five-ten.

I was always led to believe that was the average height for men. Maybe the fucking median. Everyone seems to be taller than me. But maybe I just don't see the shorter ones, heh.

Increasingly, women are getting taller than me. That's not so bad.

P.S. Coincidentally listening to 'Down in a Hole' by AIC.

No, little birds kick ass.

I've never ever dated anyone taller than me. It would feel utterly weird.

many moons ago I dated a woman who was 6'2" and though not actually taller than me in bare feet (I'm just under 6'4" on a good day when the world isn't grinding me down or my back isn't playing up) was quite taller than me in heels. It was the one and only time I've dated anybody that tall and though the height itself is nice, the physical size of being in bed with someone that tall is a little odd

I was about 5'8-9" a few years back. Probably very slightly taller now. Height is one of those things that I just can't visualise in metric measurements. Odd really, since I can't cook in anything but metric. But hey ho.

Can we have a "small" category to select?
For I am small. Just small.
It's a consolation to me that I'm a tad taller than my sister though, and she's 20 :)

I'm not quite six foot one, so have plumbed for 6'.

Being taller than average has its advantages in many respects as far as I am concerned, but the world has not been designed for people over about 5' 10''. Work surfaces are too low, leading to back pain; seats on public transport and at cinemas and theatres force your knees to splay out in search of the crevices in the seats in front of you; doing the ironing is a killer.

I can't imagine what it must be like for people over 6' 3''. Painful, I suppose.

:this:

I too am 6' and find the world made for small people. I like being tall, freakishly tall for a girl...and I wear heels too most of the time. Really short people worry me and people with tiny sausage fingers make me feel ill, well, not the people, just their hands *shudders*

Seriously, polls have gone downhill recently.

I would insert an anecdote about a tall, or short person, but I won't.

I'm a little under 5 ft 10.

Myp is slightly smaller than me. Fortuntely I don't wear heels because I'm a clumsy slob. I'm considering making him dress as Disco Stu for our wedding so he can wear platform boots and be taller than me. :D
