I'm 6'4.... The only advantage I find is reaching the top shelf in the kitchen.

Then people really must be noticably shorter on the other side of the atlantic... People towering above 210 cm aren't that rare around here... and 6'4 puts me no more than slightly above average in most circles I move in.



I think the reality is that you used to be insecure about your height, and now that you are confident about it and think you look good etc women are drawn to that, your attitude, not your height.


We all call different things dealbreakers, smokers, fat people this and that, I used to think a non-fit woman would be a dealbreaker for me, but then I met an exception, and then I noticed how many other exceptions there were, turns out I just didn't know myself well enough. And since I've thought about this I've noticed hearing people straightly say that THIS is a dealbreaker, only to see them frenchkissing a person with EXACTLY THAT trait. I guess people around us don't know themselves too well either.

NOPE NOPE NOPE! No confidence involved! I'm the same person I was before. Making the same mistakes, the same fumbles. Women like taller men. Plain and simple. Shorter men have to work harder for respect. They don't get it from the off. It's psychological. I see the before and after. If you're tall or average, you haven't had to deal with it. Period. There's nothing to sell. I'm just telling my story.

Swedish Viking, average man in the US is 176 cm. Average woman is 162 cm. At least on the East Coast, its very common to see women saying things like "6ft or better. 5'10 minimum". On many profiles, you'll see 5'8 and up. Also very common to see women 150 cm demanding their men be at least 180 in a variety of social situations.

Average women here are officially about 167~ but most I meet seem to be shorter, and official average of men is 182, the vary vast majority I meet are at least 190~

Where the hell did all the tall women and short men go to?

That sound pretty dumb to me. It's worse than getting your legs extended genius!

It's not hard to find guys who are pushing 180+ in the states these days. I'm sure when the stats are updated, the averages will be closer to 6ft. With that much selection, a 5'9 guy like me may have to work a little hard, the 5'6 guy is going to have to work really really hard and the 5'4 guy is going to have to be a millionaire and then work really really really really really really really really really really really really hard.

On second thought, I might want one of those...
