your height? - Page 8

post #106 of 209
Around 5' 10". I always hated being my height, because I was always the shortest guy on my basketball team.

Really, you are that tall? From your pics it always looks like you door knob is eye level so I thought you were like 4'10"

5'8.5" in the morning - shorter side of the average I'd say.

That is Sun Ming Ming, a 7'9" giant from China. Unlike Yao Ming, his height isn't hereditary. Rather, he had a pituitary gland disorder so he kept growing until they fixed it.

189 cm. Girls love tall men, since in some way it indicates our genetic superiority. If you are short, you need to get rich.

I think it's difficult to predict what a woman will actually find attractive in a man. I have no doubt that, when asked, most will prefer men that are taller. But, in practice, it seems women often find themselves attracted to men for surprising or intangible reasons. Afterall, there are plenty of unwealthy, ugly men out there with attractive girlfriends or wives.

For example, I have absolutely no clue why my fiancee is attracted to me. I'd like to believe it's sheer animal magnetism at work, but somehow I doubt that.

Whenever anywhere in the world such a statement is made, an alert is sent and the standard reply issued:
No. The idea that men aren't at much of a disadvantage with women if they are physically unattractive and not wealthy (or likely to become wealthy) is false. Whether the false claim is based on making people feel better or not being good at judging present or past physical attractiveness or even having non-standard tastes, it's still a false claim.

On the bright side (for shorter males) is that height isn't very strongly linked to physical attractiveness. For example, the typical woman would choose a man of average or maybe slightly below-average height over a tall man if the latter is skinny and has the less attractive face.

Do people actually pay you for this kind of insight? I'd think that a man with the spine necessary to enter a room with dignity despite his appearance would be the most likely to get a good woman and the least likely to need you.

My wife is not only quite good looking, she holds two terminal degrees.
