    I'm 6"2 so I am bigger than most people I know, but not inconveniently tall...so I'm good with it.

    Seems like it. You won't really 'fit' anywhere and have trouble finding clothes off the shelf. Getting close to 'freakish' height at 6'5", depending on where you live.

    I'm 6'3" barefoot and other than playing certain sports and being slightly more attractive to women (I need all the help I can get !) there's not a lot of advantages and too many negatives. A couple inches less would be ideal and easier for daily living, IMO.

    I wanted to be like 6'2" or 6'3". I not want to be taller. I be a pro athlete or something and be rich, and pay for the hottest escorts.

    But unfortunately, I only 5'9" barefooted. I am taller than my parents at least. I tried to play as much street basketball and volleyball in gym class and in college. I thought jumping sports make you taller.

    I'm like idk 5'8 or 5'9 I'd love to be 6'1 because whenever I go to support my friends at boxing events all the tall people like to stand in front of me and don't even offer to let me sit on their shoulders.

    Somewhere between 5’8 and 5’9 and in the suburb I grew up in- with a lot of fellow Italian-Americans I was basically average height. Only a handful of students in any grade of our high school class were over 6’1.

    Once I got to college, different story lol.

    I feel many would agree 5’11-6’2 is kind of the ideal area there.

    6’3, 6’4 are still probably cool. Once you get 6’5 and beyond, it probably has its fair share of drawbacks and annoyances.

    Watched that interview with Comey yesterday- dude towers over virtually everybody in whatever scenario he is in.

    6'4" isnt really that tall though. The top of their head is only like two hockey pucks above mine. Im 5'9". 6'4" aint giants.

    In fact 6ft, 6'2" nor 6'3" is really that much bigger than me. Its bigger, but not unsightly.

    I'm 5' 11." Ideal height probably would be around 6' 2." When i was younger I would have liked to have been a bit taller, but as i got older i realized that would be a hassle. Can't complain, i'm above average height and buying clothes and public seating aren't usually a problem.

    I reckon 4'8" and down are the only ones without issues on airplanes.

    Mostly just accommodations. Airline seats, waiting room chairs, etc. Roller coasters can be really uncomfortable. I go to San Diego comic con every year and the seats are fucking torture. You bump your head on shit a lot because everything is made for people juuuuuuust a bit shorter than you.

    Could be just me. Im just kind of big. Like I should be a linebacker or something.

    I think most insecure guys are those who are in denial about the looks.

    We could easily say rich men, pornstars, actors, businessmen, billionaires, pro athletes, politicians are insecure and that the real 'secure' men are the average men. They all wish for something more it is coping that get them to pretend otherwise same way fat women hate skinny women etc. I tell men admit truth and do Quat you can better yourself and dont' hate success.

    It's definitely a Sherdog thing.

    I've never seen so much talk about this topic before.
