Yes, where I am it's about average. There's some taller than me (a few even quite a bit taller) and there's also plenty who are shorter.

Are the Poles short, or is it just me?

Okay, so my Husband is a full blood Polish man, and we were having a discussion about the height. What is the average height of a Polish male, and Female.

To me, a Native American, Poles seem to be a short culture with a few exceptions of very tall men. But the women around us are all very short.

My husband says I'm crazy, and that they are not a short culture.
Sooo...

There have been a few threads about height already.

Polish people are not short people. There are short and tall people everywhere, but on the whole, they are average, or even above-average.

Depends what you mean by 'short'.

Good question, LTB ;)
If she's 7 feet tall, i know why she thinks people around her are short.

Short people are people too, according to rumour.
But they should only get half a vote.

Polish people are not short in comparison to most other nations.

This thread, <LOL>, it's like asking if there are midgets or 'little people', in Poland.

Poles are likely the fifth tallest nation in the world after the Swedish,the Dutch,the Czechs and the Serbs.

Some are and some aren't but they are generally pretty tall when compared with most other nations.

I'm 182cms but feel short alongside some males here. A fair few females are my height or taller. Amazon women as Shelley calls them :)

I will show an example of 'Polish height': Manutusz Bolinski, who played for the Philadelphia 76ers...He was 7'6'' in height...He is one of the Blacks Poles from Czestochowa...

I think you are thinking of the Black Madonna from Częstochowa, Joe ;) ;)

Poles are about 185cms on average.

Hey, if it makes you feel any better, I'm only 1.76! (What does 4 centimeter matter?) So much for being Dutch I guess..

:)

Amazon women as Shelley calls them :)

Yeah, but she just calls them that's because she's a dwarf! (Just like I am!)

4cms doesn't matter, is that what you tell your GF too, Arien? ;) ;)

A lot of the taller guys tend to come out on the weekends. I've seen some really tall dudes in pubs.

you are ******* dwarf it has nothing to do with Poland......

Nah, I don't have to convince her, or myself.

:)

As if questions aimed at no one in particular about the height of people have anything to do with Poland? Just because the word Pole is included?

It's quite disconcerting having young basketball players walk off the hall floor and look down at you. Teens should not be that tall :( ;)
