Short or Tall?!?!?!

Short or tall?!?! First off let me give you my information!

I am very short (asian thing ) and look very young due to my shortness! Now im talking about being voted "still mistaken as a freshman" in your high school yearbook! Now i think this can be an advatage when i get older! What do you think are the advantages of being short/tall, and which do you prefer?

I am tall (5'9") and I have NEVER had a problem with guys.

I love being my height. My boyfriend is right around 6' and we match up perfect in every aspect.

The only pain in the ass is finding clothes that fit like I want them to. Seems like most things are made for shorter women. It is funny to me that men have a "big and tall" store but all women are expected to be 5'6" and shorter.

Hey, don't call me short...

I'm the perfect height for someone 5'3". But if I was supposed to be 5'6", then I'd come up short

I absolutely fit into the short category at 5 feet! Sigh....5'3"....I wish! I would love a few extra inches as it seems so tough to find clothes that fit well....pants especially are always too long (go figure). I don't mind being really short (like I have an option anyways!!!) and it has never ever been a problem as far as men go. I realize a lot of guys like tall women but for me, I enjoy the feeling of resting my head against a nice strong chest!
You've been a naughty boy....go to my room!

I am 5'10 and I love it. I have to agree with Nikki about the clothes thing though. Finding long sleeved clothing with sleeves actually long enough is so difficult.

But I do feel short sometimes because I live with 5 guys and 4 of them are over 6 ft.

I'm with hotchocolate on this, but it all works out for me because I can wear kickass shoes to make up for being "vertically challenged" (I also have a sort of a shoe fetish). Besides, great things come in small packages.

I am 5'5 and I wouldn't mind being a couple of inches taller. My boyfriend is 6'2, so it would work out better.

i'm short.. 5'2. but i don't think height has anything to do with how young/old you look. some people think i look like im still in highschool and some people see me and definately think i'm a college student. so..go figure.

i've gotten anywhere from 17-23 about my age and i'm 20. hehe.

and i like being short because i lovee tall guys and having to tip-toe to kiss them. or even step on their shoes and tip-toe. a great feeling. i know a lot of guys that prefer short, petite girls. yay.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

I'm also 5'2" and I couldn't wish to be any other size in the world. I love the feeling of being surrounded by big, strong guys and, given my size, almost every guy is big and strong next to me. It makes me feel fragile and protected, a big turn on!

I'm 5'6" - pretty average.

I don't think I'd like to be really tall, like some supermodels are over 6' but I think it would be weird to tower over men.

I'm 5'2". Personally, it I were two or three inches taller then I wouldn't have to worry about losing weight right now I'm the shortest of all of my friends, but I don't see myself being that short.

i'm 5'3 and i think its a good height. i'm not the lightest girl in the world (not the heaviest either) and my height helps me feel petite... plus i can wear whatever height of shoe i want and not look particurally tall at all.

Well, I have to say, that I wish I was just a few inches shorter. I am between 6' and 6'1" and it's hard to find clothes that are not only long enough, but cute enough for someone my age. For the longest time, I bought jeans in the men's section at wal-mart to get decent fitting jeans.
Now for the guys thing, I gradutated with only 2 other people taller than me and they were guys, and any other tall guy I have ever met, had a short girlfriend. Some of the guys didn't even look my way in any other interest other than friendship.
Oh well, their loss I guess.

Megs, it's too bad you don't live near me. All of my over 6' roommates complain that they can never find tall women. They would do anything to meet a girl over 6 feet.

I'm 5'8" and I'm satisfied. Knowing I'm not a towering menace or a shrimp is good for the confidence. Most guys fit nicely who are anywhere from 5'10" up to 6'2"

5'8", but I seem taller because of my posture, a throwback to my early days in the saddlebred circuit. I wear heels most of the time, I've decided I don't care if I'm taller than my date....not that I have many to begin with. :-P

The way I see it, height doesn't matter so much. My feet go all the way to the ground, so I've got the important part covered Actually, I was always the tallest kid in my class until sixth grade. My doctor was convinced that I'd be taller than my mom, who is 5'9". In sixth grade, I stopped at 5'3" and have been there ever since. I watched the rest of the kids in my class pass me by. In grad school, however, I grew an inch. Don't ask me how.
Do I contradict myself?

I'd say JadziaDax got it just right way up there somewhere. I'm the perfect hieght for someone 5'3". i mean what are you gonna do about it anyways? it's about the same as every other physical characteristic i have; half the time i love it and half the time i hate it and the rest of the time i just don't think about it.

I'm 5'10. Being tall is nice, but the constant exclamations of "OH MY GOD! YOU ARE SOOO TALL!" sort of get annoying after awhile. I don't think I'm that much taller than too many people. There is a pretty good range it seems.

5'9, and always wanted to be a little taller -- 5'9" just seemed so average.

Though the more I travel, the more I'd kill to be 4'2" just to get leg room on the planes.

Was this thread really revived from exactly a year ago? Freaky...
I'm 5'5" and always wanted to be taller. Primal is almost 6'6" and we make a very strange looking couple. My mom calls us Mutt and Jeff.
I think I posted a pic in the wedding section...
Had to search for it.
