Problems/benefits that come with height
    #2124573 - 11/20/03 10:07 AM (13 years, 21 days ago)

Okay so this thread is meant to be about the height of a person and its problems and benifits. Being 6"6 i'm a little on the tall side.
I always bang my head on low lamps, doorways sometimes, on the stupid campus busses, and it seems like every time I go to the restroom I get stuck at the really low urinal for shorter people. On the other hand it has cool benifits Girls like it, guys dont fuck with me (Im not lanky I weigh between 270-280 and Im far from being fat), I can see things other people cant, find people in a crowd and other cool stuff. So I was wondering if I could get a perspective from any of the vertically challenged people here. My impression is that most people dont like being short, but I could be wrong.

Problems with being tall: (me at 6'4", 250 lbs)

1) Lower back problems. It sucks.

2) Never, ever being able to sit comfortably on an airplane.

3) Sometimes, usually Italian/Latino types like to start shit with you just because you are bigger than them. This happened to me quite a bit when I worked at a strip club. Of course, they all got dealt with.

4) Some say chicks dig it, but I think a lot of chicks are intimidated by tall dudes.

I'm 6'2 but I wish I was a bit shorter. 5'11 or 6'0 would be nice
Sometimes I stand out in a croud when I don't want to. Yeah also, airplane seats fuckin blow. I'm not an easy sleaper either. I have to be real comfortable first.

And I've had a couple of short people try and start shit just because they're tall and I'm short. I always wanna just be like "I'd kick your ass if ya weren't so short"

:heart: being on the taller side, i'm only 5'8, which isn't bad for a girl. I always wished I was 5'10 or so, but when I go out to a club I wear my 'tall' girl shoes which do make me about 5'10/5'11 and I love it. I always tease my short friends because they always have to smell people's armpits... ugg... Even at work I'm one of the taller one's, so I'm always asked to get things in high place for people, I like it.
I'm 5'8 and I sure as hell wouldn't want to be any shorter. 
I would NEVER date a guy shorter than me (I guess I shouldn't say never but...) my beau is 6' and I love that too. It makes me feel protected when I'm with him (also being tall myself, it makes me feel petite and feminine beside him),  I guess I wouldn't want to date a shorter fella than myself so I wouldn't feel like a big 'ol giant.  :crazy:

I'm 5'7" which is sometimes considered taller for a girl...but when I'm at work I still have to ask people to reach things on high shelves. :smirk: It just depends on your perspective...tall, compared to what?

im 6'4" and its aaaaaaaaaaaall good... although beeing this tall makes me look even more skinny than i actually am... but i don't mind... only drawback i have esperienced is the lower back pain, and the lack of space in aeroplanes... but as for the ladies, they all have liked it this far... so as i said: its good :thumbup:

Methinks there be a correlation between being really fucking tall and liking shrooms? Why is everyone here so tall? I'm like 5'9 and it sucks. I get no respect from the tallies. I want to grow!

Yeah lower back problems such. I actually ruptured a disk in my back about two years ago doing squats and had to have the disk removed and a spinal fusion. It sucked. I cant ride on airplanes or buses or trains, and its hard to find a car besides an SUV that I can fit in to drive.

I'm 5'11, maybe 6'. That's really kind of short now days, but I like it when a good looking woman is taller than me so it works out, but sometimes there's a lot of short people around and I feel tall for a little while, and that's nice too. So I guess I'm happy at that height.
