GUYS: Do you ever wish you were shorter? Watch

    #1

    I'm height 6'2, (and 15 stone of muscle, so not as lanky as most guys my height) considerably more than average, stands out in most crowds, but not what you'd call "ridiculously tall". im also a little shy in loud places like clubs and am a little awkward at times

    when im talking to women in loud places like clubs, i find it annoying to be shouting down at them, also i feel like its too try hard and i feel really self conscious.
    also people look at the big tall guy, expecting him to call the shots insticntivly, and i find it embarrasing not to take charge, i mean i hate leading people through crowds in clubs, and i feel embarrased to be following guys 6 inches+ shorter than me

    anyone feel same?

    Short guys rarely get the trouble you get. Mostly because women refuse to talk to them.

      In general I quite like being tall, but I know what you mean, sometimes I wish I didnt stand out so much.

      Nah, why would i? I mean, i'd still chat to people the same and be the same guy, but i'd limit my opportunities with the ladies considerably.

      If anything, i want one more inch to add to my 6 foot frame.

      I am 6'6", and I am constantly asked about my height. It does get annoying but I think it's kind of cool being tall, I'd rather be that than the opposite to be honest. If you think you stand out in crowds, then in comparison I stick out like a ridiculously massive sore thumb!
