    I put 5'8 for men - all the ones I see are shortish
    5'7 for females?

    speak for yourselves girls, I'm like 5'7 and a half
    That may be so, but it doesn't stop the average from being 5ft 3/4!

    (sorry, I just didn't like your "speak for yourselves girls" attitude there.. )

    you homestly think girls are an inch shorter than males. That would mean girls in heels would make them taller than most blokes.

    5ft 8 isn't the average height of males in this country, only midgets think that. I'm 6ft and most people my age seem my height.
    Agreed, I'm 6ft 3 and most people are around my height, apart from the obviously shorter people and those too scared of my towering glory to show themselves in public :woo:

    Its weird that the average height for women is 5ft 4, yet at 5ft 2 I seem to be considered 'tiny'
    I get that all the time. All my female friends point out how weird I am to be 5ft2, when they are 5ft8, 5ft10 etc. Then I point out that I'm actually a lot closer to the average so less weird than them :p:

    actually I think men are that height (from what I'VE seen). And girls are about 5'5 or something mostly. Not my fault if I'm surrounded by midgets?

    And at our college dance, with all the girls in heels, lots WERE TALLER :mad:, what's your problem with that? :woo:
