    we come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and one of those physical features which determines us is our height. people come in lots of different heights and sometimes its an issue for people, sometimes it isn't.

    do you get intimidated by people taller than you? i certainly do.

    I am fairly tall myself, so no I don't. I do feel a bit uncomfortable around really short people though, because I always feel like I'm patronising them and talking down to them, which I don't mean to do!

    No, people don't usually seem that tall to me until I see myself in a mirror/shop window standing next to them.

    It depends. Big and aggresive = me intimidated, small and aggresive = me chuckling.

    No one does. There's nothing good about being tall. I'm quite tall and even 12 year olds take the piss.

    Anyone taller than you would be pretty scary tbh. Unless they were obviously a big softie.

    I don't - but I'm quite short so everyone is taller than me. My boyfriend is nearly a foot taller than me.

    I'm quite short, so I'm used to people being taller than me. When I wear heels and am taller than someone, it makes me feel awkward and clumsy!
