Gigantism is a serious illness, which eventually results in death. A very slow, painful death. Despite their impressive height, giants are actually weak and frail. So I don't see how a man like that would be a desirable husband.

Everything is good in moderation. Bigger is better, but only up to a point.

Taller than that and advantage declines fast. A 6'5" man has about the same problem of height at a man who is 5'6".

Over 6'5" and a man has to be a bean pole or have an NBA paycheck to have any success at all. If 6'8" he better not be more than 170 pounds.
6'5" is a very attractive height to me, much more so than 6'1", but then again, I am tall too.

170 pounds on a man who is 6'8" is grotesquely thin. My husband is 6'3" and was skinny at 175.

Being almost 9 feet tall, do you think women would throw themselves at his feet? To the ladies here, are any of you turned on by a guy like this, or owuld date him?
Probably would'nt be so much as throwing themselves at his feet as it would be tripping on them.

Well, if he were Robert Wadlow the Diswasher salesman at Sears, women would not throw themselves at him.

If he were the $200 million dollar starting center for the Lakers women would be throwing themselves at him constantly.

Thats how women work.

You haven't talked to enough women. If I had my druthers, 6'3" or 6'4" would be my choice. 6'5" would be fine, whereas 5'6" would not be.

Not true. The most desirable man, in my view, is already mine.

Am I a desirable man?

Oh boy did I just open myself up to about 5 pages of bashing.

I just don't understand the OPs question at all.

Why would a giant with a medical condition be the most desirable man?

Am I missing something?
