It's not really the same... This thread is in centimeters and the one behind your link is in feet-inches :D
It makes a lot of difference for me since I don't really know my height in feet-inches.

By the way, I'm 167 cm...

Of course, I was just kidding... I know that a foot is about 30 cm and an inch is about 2,54 cm. I was just too lazy to calculate... :mrgreen:

I think being short is good for a girl. You can pull of being thin way better than a tall girl could. Being tall and thin makes you look stretched, which soon can give you the look of an underfed giraffe.. (yes, the model look I'm referring to - disgusting if you ask me)

Petite, on the other hand, is cute and desirable in my opinion. :mrgreen: Short people can also pull off being chubby better, I think.

@Lantis: you might be a bit on the shorter side but if that's you in your avatar, you're still free to give me a call.. :whistling:

Lol that is so true. im also 5'. shortest in the family but its cool. Being short gives us perks =D I like eating sushi so its cool being 5'. Theres a restaurant near my place with this policy where ppl 5' and under pay only $5 for a all-u-can-eat sushi. so like california rolls, spider rolls..etc..yeah its pretty tight. and props to an earlier post about getting bfs. haha i guess its a good thing cuz height won't be a factor. The guys can make up for the height loss. :roll

I think being too tall isn't an advantage. being too short isn't great either. Being a moderate height would be the best way to go.
well, I wished I was about 180cm tall.

I'm about 6'3 and I wish I was more the average height for guys my age. Say...5'9 - 5'10.

As I've gotten older, I've embraced it more, but it's the little things that do get to you. Buying clothes, buying shoes, towering over people, people mistaking you for being older than you are, the stupid comments and quips - "Wow! You're so tall!" "Why are you so tall?" The silly digs and jokes people make piss me off sometimes.

It's defineltey one of those things that's gotten a lil' easier as I've gotten older, but I do still wish I was a tad shorter.

For the girls in here putting themselves down because of their height, I'm a say this from a guy's perspective...

There is nothing wrong with a girl being short!!

I've never ONCE looked at a girl and been like "Oh my DAYS she's so short!!!" :lol I'd never think that way anyway, 'cos more often that not it's that I'm too tall as opposed to the other person being really short. :lol

People who hate or judge others on their height are haters for one reason or another. I don't like my height sometimes, but it's something I have to live with and it's something I'm gradually embracing.

It seems the average is 5'4 through 5'7. Most likely more males are near 5'7, the females. :lol:

Being the tallest as a kid was not fun. Always stood out in the crowd, oh well, everyone grew too so I'm not a giant anymore.

I'm thinking about 6 foot even, and for the most part just fine with it cause i live in America

but on my trip to japan I felt goofy and big footed, as well as inherited an involutary slouch...

i dont think i would just want to be permanently shorter but more able to control my height depending on the situation...that would be awesome!

Don't worry... girls will come flocking to you. :P You're actually taller than my boyfriend. *laughs* I find it very cute. And I'm 5'4" by the way. My boyfriend is only... 5', I believe...
