    Agreed. I'm 5'11 and the only perks I find are the length of my legs (but even that has it's problems - see trouser/skirt issues) and being able to see over people at gigs.

    I don't mind if a guy is a few inches shorter than me as long as he's cool with the fact I still wear heels unless he specifically asks me not to. I like my high heels and what they do for my posture too much to give them up completely!

    I have a mare with trousers and dresses too. I went into Lipsy the other day and was despairing at how short some of their dresses are. Anything shorter than 33" is too short for me to wear as a dress, as I once ended up finding out a la ASOS. I need 36" leg jeans as well, thankfully Dorothy Perkins jeans are a nice fit on me

    I do enjoy being tall sometimes, because with being a tad bit bigger I can carry a tiny bit extra weight and it's much less noticeable than someone a foot shorter the same size as me.

    6ft 7 then she'd be 2 inches smaller than me, but I wouldn't have to bend down!

    6'9, jesus bro. Don't mean to be rude or anything but do you like being that tall? Or ever see people taller than you? I don't think I'd want to be over 6'4 tbh!

    According to some psychologists, men, on average, want their ideal woman to be 4 inches shorter than they are, whilst women want their ideal man to be 6 inchers taller than them. You do the math. Also, don't quote me on this because I have no idea where I got it from. I think someone told me it, or I read it somewhere. Either way I trusted the source.

    I seen one guy in london who was at a freak show ironically who was 7ft 3 and gave me directs, we were just about eye level with each other and one guy in the supermarket about a year ago who was 6ft 10 not much in it because I had a mohawk at the time.

    I love being tall

    I can change light bulbs without a ladder, reach the top shelf where everything good is , Rarely get ID'd and get some pretty special attention.

    Plus I don't get Whose Johnny.

    Just You Know Giant Johnny, right?

    It's a Bummer no one can sit behind me in the car and that I can't afford anything big or nice enough at the moment and plus can't even get in a RX8 or Lotus.

    But I like being me

    Just getting shoes to fit is a ******* Size 17s aren't easy to come by.

    My Jeans are good plenty of Levis 36 Waist 36 Legs, Irregular fit < That label did make me feel bad, but I love threads like this and being me

    Oh yes, what's the embarrassed love smiley about?

    Ah, mate, at least you like it! I have issues with banging my head etc at 6'1 (may be a bit taller) and I wouldn't say I'm even that tall. My doctor though was like 'you should have another growth spurt' (yay ) As for clothes I can semi-sympathise because I'm very broad due to genetics and exercise, so I need to buy too big height wise to fit me. Pah.

    How tall are your parents?
