    Compared with others I am rather large in all aspects - I am about 6 ft 7 inches and only 16 years old and fingers crossed I have stopped growing. Do not get me wrong I am in good physique, just really big.

    This leads me to the question for the boys - is height a good or bad thing?

    And for the girls - would you be more or less attracted to a guy who is a bit larger?

    For the record I am not complaining about my size just curious about other peoples' perceptions and views about it.
    Thank you

    Well, Im really short so 6ft 7 is just tooo tall for me, around 6ft ish I can cope with. But Id hardly turn someone down just because of their height.

    The most important thing is that you are a lovely person.

    Looks only matter to shallow people!

    Haha I can't believe I'm saying this to a 16-year-old but you sound like my ideal man. And my best friend and I would be scratching each other's eyes out over you - were you ten years older! Height is one of our prerequisites in men, us both being 5'11. 6'4 is the best I've had to date, but now I know that 6'7s are out there, my requirements just (ahem) heightened a bit. Also, to be big in all areas is manly and therefore good: a) skinny men are a turn-off, and also b) self-conscious men are, too.

    How you doin'?

    Lilith stop being disgusting it is kinda almost biologically possible that you could be his mother.

    Personally, anything over 6' is too tall - I'm 5'2" and find tall men to be a) hard on the neck when permanently looking up at them, and b) uncomfortable to hug - either getting their belt buckle or hip bones. Not comfy at all.

    Of course, in reality, we can't help who we fall in love with, but if we're talking first impressions, it would have some bearing on his overall attractiveness tbh.

    I'm 5 foot 9 so I like tall guys

    Anything over 6 foot 1ish is good. And bigger guys are manlier, and it feels like they're more inclined to look after you, so to speak.

    I like a few inches taller than me... that way I don't end up with a sore neck (e.g., and ex who was 6'4" and it was impossible for me to kiss him if he didn't put his head down/I didn't stand on something :p:) but it still leaves him nice and tall when he cuddles up to me/kisses.

    I know it has nothing to do with relationship, but tall people are more likely to get a better pay than small people. Taller person have an image of leader in firms... So better pay and better job (according to a few studies).

    I went out with a guy who was 6'8 - it's one of the few times I've ever felt petite! I used to have to stand on his steel toe capped boots to kiss him :P
