I've always been short (or "vertically challenged" if that's the correct term now) and I think I'm shrinking fast. I am one inch shorter now than I was at this time one year ago, according to my last physical. At this current rate of dimunition, I'll disappear altogether in five years.
I didn't mind being the shortest guy at the blog-fest. I've always been short, so I am accustomed to having other guys tower over me. I've never taken a back seat to tall guys just because they were tall, and I proved that fact on the football field when I was young. I proved it in a few bar-fights, too. I may be little, but I am LOUD.
But I'm either shrinking faster than I think, or wimmen are getting taller. If you saw a picture of me standing between Georgia and Angie, I would look like a goddam munchkin. Just Damn! Those are tall wimmen. I think they both share Viking blood in their veins.
Kelley is small and petite, except for her bosomal area, which is quite impressive. But she is SHORTER than I am. I could lean down to kiss her. If I wanted to kiss Georgia or Angie, I would have to take a run-and-go and shinny up a leg to get where I wanted to be. That sucks.
I am going to buy some elevator shoes.
speaking from experience (I'm 5'2" he's 6'5") you don't need a running jump....
just a handy:
set of stairs
or a chair
or a ladder
or a stepstool
or a high curb
or a running board on a pick'em up truck
I'm about 5' 7". On first sight, the only thing a taller man can do for me that an average height man doesn't, is give me a automatic feeling of femininity, which is usually quickly destroyed by his personality.
My father was 6' 5-1/2" tall. Some men can match him in height, but I've yet to find one who can match my treasured memories of my father. I'm talking about his work ethic, honesty, love for his family, and assorted skills, too numerous to list, much less remember without crying.
My father still lives in my memories. He was a very tall man in many, many ways.
Acidman, you'll always be a tall man in Quinton's memories, too.
Oh, I dunno. I rather like tall wimmen. Longer legs, y'see, which means more leg muscle, and... *ahem*
Then again, I am 6'5, so...
I am a bit on the short side and have always enjoyed the benefits.
I'm sure that I looked rather ridiculous with one of my first boyfriends. I was 15 and 5'8". He was 16 and 5'3". (I've always been partial to the little guys.)
Nothing wrong with you "vertically challenged" gentlemen. My ex was an inch and half shorter than I am. Didn't bother me, but it bothered him. (Duh! Why was he with me?) He'd alway tell me not to wear high heels. I suppose he went out and got a shorter and more controllable wife.
Hey brutha, height doesn't matter when you're lying down!!!
I am 6'4" in my wildest boots; 5'9" flatfoot.
I've got legs up to my neck. Men love them and can't understand why I hate them. *I* am the one who has to shave the fuckers LOL
