    I'm a 6'1 guy, reasonably built.. living in London. Everyday, without fail, I see:


    - At least 5 girls taller than me
    - At least 5 girls more muscular than me


    What's going on? Do you guys see what I see?? :confused:

    Well, I would guess at confirmation bias skewing your results somewhat.

    Over what length of time have you noticed this? They aren't going to get taller overnight y'know.

    The number of girls taller than you will be proportional to the number of girls you see, which in itself will probably vary with how long you spend looking at people. I.e. if you've started a job with a longer commute, you will see more people into work each day, and see more tall girls as a result.

    The answer is it's probably just you. Because size isn't something that changes very quickly.

    thats weird... maybe theyre taking steroids to get laid or something? and as a result it makes them bigger. or maybe its just something wrong with their minds? or maybe they are putting something in the bottles of wine from tesco and sainsburys? i think you need to contact your local MP and find out what is going on, this sounds very suspicious indeed...

    Not surprising to see girls more muscular though I would say. Not as many people doing manual work, most guys who don't play the right type of sport or are hitting the gym are pretty skinny. If a girl is doing either of those not surprised to see them a similar size.

    Plus I would also say living in London you see a diverse range of people, and you simply see a lot of people. One trip on the tube, you can encounter more people than a person living in a small town or village might in a day. So you probably get a pretty good spread, increasing the likelihood of, as said, confirmation bias.

    I think we're getting taller (5'9-10" myself and noticing more and more girls my height or more) but I'm not sure about more muscular than a 'reasonably built' 6'1" guy :/ Idk, maybe you're just seeing a lot of extremely fit girls in heels around? :L

    I know a lot of guys that overestimate their height. I'm definitely 5ft7 i've been measured lots of times. My boyfriend likes to say he's 5ft11 but by comparison you can easily see he's only about 2 inches taller than me. So maybe you're just not that tall since there isn't really an abundance of 6ft 1 girls.

    I am objectively 185cm tall. Do you see it too? The tall girl phenomenon??

    Look at that girl from game of thrones, what's her name...
