I'm only 5'7'', which makes me feel a bit short, but on the bright side, it means that most of my dating partners will be equal to my height or taller, which I guess I prefer.

Aw yah 5'7 and Libra rising. [MENTION=5418]Lady_X[/MENTION] is 5'7 as well [MENTION=18819]five sounds[/MENTION] what's your lank? Oh and I really, really, really liked a guy that was shorter than me by only an inch or so and still...I couldn't do it. It wasn't even a sense that I *didnt feel feminine* or whatever because he was a Sicilian brick shithouse. It was just some vague feeling that something was off...like if you are used to wearing a watch or bracelet and then one day forgot it at home. I'd try again though if fate took me in that direction but yah...

i'm 5'8.5
sometimes people ask me to grab things from high shelves for them.

If I were 2 inches taller I'd have it made at my job. I can get most things, but two more inches.....haha (I have done what people do to you to a few of my coworkers)

I am 5'6.5"

Not so literally. I mentioned 5" but I will back out of that. It's more of just having this predilection toward being drastically taller/shorter than the other partner and requiring it.

I do see those with strict height standards as usually red flaggy. Not saying it's accurate for all types who prefer it. But by my anecdotal observations? It is.

I'm not into the dude who requires "petite women" and I'm sure it works both ways for the woman requiring the uber tall man. Sorry. It's my opinion. I just think it's a bit like overcompensating for how the person wants to see themselves. Generally uses the size of the other as cheap emotional reinforcement of masculinity/femininity.

I totally get this.

5"2. I have to use chairs a lot, but I guess it makes me kinda cute.

About 5' 4"/5' 5" (I mean, my sister says I'm 5' 5" but I'm not entirely sure? Maybe I'm 5' 4.5"?)

It's nice to look up if a guy is taller than me. :blush: Although looking straight at a guy who's just about the same height is cool too, makes it easier for me to imagine us both as (literal and figurative) equals. :heart:

I see that I already posted here but apparently was horribly wrong!

The other day when I was asked about my height I said ‘5’4 and they insisted I was very wrong and ‘definitely taller’ and Yep, I guess she was right.) :laugh:

I am SO sorry to have lied to you all.

Don’t keep us in suspense— what’s the real answer?!



I just got my height checked again at the doctor on Monday. Still a 5’9” monsterlady. :cheese:
Age has yet to shrink me, but it wouldn’t be the worst if it did.

It was...5’4.5!

‘5’9 is average woman height in my circle of friends. I am quite short.

In the upside, I think you’re around average height for women in our country. Not that short is bad [/Fe disclaimer]

All the women I know are around your height, except my best friend (she’s 6ft).

I am okay with my height. The only reason I'm over 5' at all is because I took growth hormone shots for many year.

I think being the most (or least) anything in a group is fun. Positive or negative, it's a trait unique to you.
