    25 and still confusing "you're" with "your". Time to call it quits on that so-called degree, tit.

    If you even are a student that is. Wouldn't surprise me if you're just some working-class bell end who likes to perv on the profile pictures of 18 year olds.
    Oh no! Resorting to grammar correction as a form of insult, that's really got me, boo hoo hoo I really do hope i can type everything correctly. Maybe I'll hire a proof reader.

    Those who resort to correcting people's grammar because they can't find anything witty to reply with are the bell ends.

    I have a 1st class honors degree and a masters which I'm guessing is more than what you have, oh and a beautiful girlfriend which I'm also guessing you will never have because you are a bitter midget without an ounce of wit. Goodbye.

    Lol what in? Film studies? It may be one grammatical error, but it suggests that you're a bit of a retard, as most ppl learn about that particular example when they're about 12.

    As it goes I am the same height as you, with muscle and am seeing 3 girls. And everything that I say is true, lol.

    You can't win mate, so why even bother?

    In graphic design, and no I'm not unemployed I run my own company after working 2 years at the worlds best advertising agency, have a mortgage free city center apartment and everything that I could want. Good luck trying to pick that apart.

    I couldn't care less to know what you do because I can already tell you're on your way to making a full time tosser.

    Talking grammar, there's no such word as 'ppl' in the English language, you're not texting on a mobile phone to save space you cretinous hypocrite.

    You might be seeing three girls, but without their permission and through a pair of binoculars. It's hardly anything to be proud of.

    I've already won, you just refuse to acknowledge it.

    a) You have a small penis
    b) Your bird is a minger

    or

    c) Both

    There was no anger, some pity (on your behalf) and a lot of self satisfaction maybe.
    It looks like you're running low on material now and resorting to bringing out your own insecurities, instead of making false assumptions go and seriously re-think your existence. . .You'll probably find some knives somewhere in the kitchen.

    I am about 6ft tall. My boyfriend is like 5'8. We've been together almost 3 years. I don't mind most of the time, but it hurts when idiots look at us like we've got three heads between us or something. It's really not that incredible an idea that height doesn't matter all that much.
    One time we got looked up and down by a girl in a shop, and she said to her friends "Why do tall people even go out with short people anyway?" as if it had anything to do with her, or as if height has anything to do with anything.

    It does suck sometimes, because I am pretty uncomfortable in my own skin, and hate being so tall, but my boyfriend loves me just the way I am. I would love, love to be 5'6 and to feel small and protectable (not that that's a real word), but it just isn't going to happen.

    When I was young and stupid I used to think "Oh, I'd never go out with someone shorter than me." but it really doesn't get you anywhere to be so shallow.

    Sucks.

    Guys are generally shorter than girls incase you haven't noticed. It looks unusual to see a guy walking around with a girl that is taller than him. No one wants to look weird in public.

    There's also the fact that humans are automatically attracted to certain characteristics.
    lul wuut?

    Thats completely wrong in case you havent noticed.

    The hell it is. You say it's wrong without giving any evidence as to why. If you're disputing that the average guy is taller than the average girl then you're a complete moron.

    That is what I said in my original post you fool.

    PS. You spelled moron wrong, even though I spelled it correctly in a previous post, all you needed to do was read it....

    JESUS. How the hell can a girl know if you are 5'10 or 5'11. WHAT a load of rubbish.

    2.5 cm really makes that much of a difference. Christ, wearing trainers adds about an inch- normal every day trainers not those "fashionale" basketball llike "creps".
    Finally someone with some sense.

    What makes me laugh is that people always claim to being taller than they are aswell. The amount of "5 10/11" girls I've met that really aren't is untrue, and I know this based on my height.

    The thing is, as above, an inch isn't distinguishable by looking at someone. If one is very slight for instance they seem shorter than they are. Just how this 'I'll settle for anything above X' attitude has come about I don't know.

    I really do feel for short lads, it simply isn't fair.

    For the same reason that we guys want girls to be shorter than us, we're just the more physical gender so it makes sense.

    Hah yeah, it's annoying when people just clearly lie about their height. Both genders are guilty though.

    Ive not met many men my height and none shorter. It would make me feel very odd to be looking down at a guy as Im just not used to it.

    For taller girls I think its about feeling dainty and feminine in comparison.
