    Let me bet that the males in question are at least 5'9", and the females are close to their height.

    Am I right?

    Not here. One of them is about 5'6 and his wife's probably at least 5'9. The other one is about the same, but the difference in height is not as great, maybe an inch or two max.

    No, the wives are about 5' 6".

    Really? I can pick up ANY of them? Woohoo!

    I doubt they'd want a recluse such as myself, but hey, if they have no choice in the matter, that does work to my advantage. I'm all for it. But why only 6'+ guys?

    All bar one of my exes were of the same height or shorter than me, my next conquest has to be 6' and over as I want to feel feminine.

    I'm 5'9'' without heels, but then I love heels so I'm tall.

    Me? Only those shorter would I ever have a chance of being accepted by, and the tall males tend to go for them, making me a waste remnant. As if I didn't feel like one already.
    Do you have any limits on what height you would feel comfortable with in a woman? I only say this to notice that you are in as much a position to be selective over height as anyone else. It's generally natural to have some limits on what physical features feel compatible, although some people are more flexible than others. Anyway, you've got it going on, wolfy-doodle. You gotta know it, yes?

    I always feel better when i realize that a person doesn't need a desired response from 'everyone', but merely 'someone'. It would not significantly matter if 99.9% of the people in the world had feature X, required feature X, etc. as long as that .1% exception can be found. They are the only ones that matter in love and intimacy. Good logic? Flawed logic? What say yee?

    I guess it is funny that we're arguing unsubstantiated claims. They could all be bogus...

    I'd use them if I knew how.

    I didn't mean only, but you wouldn't be rejected for being short.

    I think I've seen two cases of a married couple where the female was taller than the male, but in one of the two the male was still taller than me.

    The first is interesting because I know them fairly well and the male is actually shorter than me (this is not easy to do...5'2", really skinny) while his wife is quite a bit taller than me (6'1", I believe, and at least 4 times my width). They're the most size-disproportionate family I've ever personally met. Also, you'd better not mess with me around her - she loves me and she will kill you (she has threatened people before and physically threw a guy once that was bothering me).

    Conversely, I had (have?) a friend that's like 6'8" (rough estimate...this guy is freakishly-tall), and his dad is shorter than him, but only slightly (couple inches, maybe), while his mother is in the mid-4' range (much shorter than someone that described themselves as "mutantly-short" earlier in this thread). Aside from my friend, the family is really weird/reclusive/nutty. All three of their kids are huge, even their daughter. My friend only dated females that were shorter than me (I believe he was planning on getting married to one of them last time I saw him (I lost track because he dated so many females, being tall and therefore attractive...funny thing, too, because he is actually quite introverted and shy (akin to me) with many of the same nerdy interests that I have))...

    Basically what I meant is that height is not a limiting factor for females unless they're quite tall, while it's a severe limiting factor for males, particularly for those of us that are really short.

    Just look for them, then store them for future use.

    Useless factoid - i had a roommate once tell me i talked in my sleep and said, Let's share these bones. It just seemed pertinent somehow.
