    Well I'm 5'11".

    I'm ok with boys up to 3 inches taller than me. Any taller and it's off-putting, particularly when they boast about their height :yep:

    I'm not keen on girls being taller than me, again particularly if they think they're somehow better than me because they're taller. 5'9" would be the absolute tallest I'd like a girl.

    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.
    Lol I don't know why but I absolutely hate hate hate taller people than me! Short man syndrome but 6 foot 5 haha!

    I'm 6'3, so no. My whole family is full of big people over the 6 foot mark.

    Although not family, my sisters boyfriend is 6'7.

    I'm exactly a foot taller than my girlfriend, bless her lol. Neck cramp much :P

    I hate standing next to really short people, I feel like I'm talking down to them or make them feel intimidated when I don't mean to! Hah

    Yes, especially those idiot giants that wear killer heals to make themselves even taller. It's totally ridiculous

    Being 6'4" I would hope people weren't intimidated by height, but I guess I'm slightly intimidated if people are taller than me. Double standards ftw!

    I don't- which is especially strange because I'm short! I guess Im so used to looking up to people, because all my friends are mostly guys and happen to be quite tall :rolleyes:

    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'm 6'7. It's great.

    I'm not intimidated (playing basketball means I'm use to interacting with pretty tall people) but sometimes if someone is particularly tall they have a tendency to sort of lean over you which can become claustrophobic and irritating, though not necessarily intimidating. If someone is very tall and very buff and very aggressive and possibly even armed, then yes I might be intimidated.

    What really irritates is me is very tall people who think their height is some kind of achievement, who cannot utter a single sentence that doesn't somehow emphasise their stature. Tall people seem to like talking about their height a lot more than short people, even though the latter are always said to have the complex.
