At what point does height become a hindrance?
#1
A lot of people seem to think that "taller is better" but surely there's a limit? I agree that it's great to be tall but I wouldn't want to be over 7 feet and I don't think most people would either. I think most men want to be somewhere between 6 feet and 6'5", but maybe I'm wrong, which is why I'm posting this thread.

I've seen 6'3" people say their height can be a little problematic. 6'2" people? Never seen one complain that he's too tall so I assume 6'3" is when height starts becoming a problem. Personally I'd be more than satisfied with 6 feet. Then again if I was 6 feet I might see it differently, who knows...

6'4" but I'm sure most people would enjoy being that tall.

Edit: I meant men, lol

From what I've seen most people under 6 feet want to be 6'2" and people over 6 feet want to be 6'5".

I agree with 6'5" too. Pity this wasn't a poll...

Yeah but it's just minor annoyances really. The benefits certainly outweigh them.

Guests can't create polls.

I would say around 6'5"/6'6" although in my opinion it's more accurate to think about it in terms of tradeoffs rather than a hindrance.

Exactly. My height can be a bit of a pain sometimes but I wouldn't think of it as a hindrance, and I certainly have no desire to be shorter. At the end of the day I think the joy of being big trumps all the little disadvantages. Only a guy who really hates being the center of attention would hate being extremely tall.

Agreed. I think height is a beautiful thing as long as it's natural. Wink

Only when you start having physical problems because of your height, like foot and/or back problems.
