Height

post #1 of 129
Thread Starter 
Just wondering...

How tall is everyone here?

What height is good for a man?

Has anyone here grown after 18?

I'm 5'10, but the family's got a late growth spurt gene, I might still grow.

6' 3" There is "good" height for a man. You are what you are.

Just shy of 6'.

I don't think there is a good height. Average is 5'9 to 5'10. Everyone is different.

When did you all stop growing? I'm 15 and I'm only 5'7, but I doubt I'll be growing any taller. My dad is like 5'10 or '11, and my mom is 5'1. Is there any hope for me?

There is definitely hope for you. I grew a lot between 16 and 18 and then added maybe another 3/4" or inch in my early twenties. I'm 5'10". My mother is 5', my dad is 5'9"

You should grow until at least 18. Whether you grow into your 20s or not depends on your family growth pattern.

5'10". Just turned 21, so I don't think I'll be getting any taller.

6'. I think 6'2-ish is the ideal height. I might have grown 1 cm after 18, no more than that.

Same here - I was stuck at 5'9" until age 16 then shot up to just shy of 6'.

I'm about 6'3" and still growing at age 25. A "good height" for a man is a height that allows him to see either under a skirt, or down a blouse without too much effort. In between kinda sucks.

I'm around 5'10". Ideal height is subjective based on what you do or what you need the height for. If you are basing height on what women want in general, I have often found that women, even short ones, like taller men, typically 6' or taller. Perhaps taller height is seen as being more masculine in their eyes. If I was to be able to pick a height from birth to eventually be I'd probably pick 6'2". That would give me more height to play basketball and those darn 34" inseam jeans that I always seem to buy would fit without alteration.

I'm 5' 11", actually, just a little shy of that, but I always round up about a quarter inch. I'm cool with my height, and because of my slim and narrow build, I actually look taller. However, if I had to choose, I would be 6'2", and while I'm at it, I'd take Brad Pitt's build, so, at 6'2", I'd probably weigh just shy of 180 lbs, instead of my 152-154 lbs, depending on my fluid levels at any particular time. Oh, and I'd also have that Jet Li stare that says "I'm about to kick your ass from Shanghai to Beijing." Of course, that I'd have the skills to back this stare up is a given. Anyway, 6' 2". No one asked about the other stuff. I just thought I'd share. I'm intrigued by Tokyo's answer. So it is best to be as tall as Shaq or as that guy who plays Mini-me?

Quite frankly, I thought the perfect height is just to be able to look into the eyes of your woman and kiss her without straining your neck and back.

A lot of the male sex icons women fantasize about are actually not 6'2 but shorter. Like, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Orlando Bloom, Matthew McConaughey, whatever.

Nevertheless, I'd like another inch, to reach 5'11. Then finally those even number inseam pants can fit me perfectly.

Just about 6' even, and I'm 16.
