It is true. We're all midgets here.

The Dinarians and the Dutch are now well known in Europe for extreme tallness...."

So am I, i'm 197cm , brother is 185cm, cousins 190cm, 188cm, 191cm, and the youngest one 19yr old is 197cm, might outgrow me. my father is 182cm.

The dinaric Serbs are extremely tall because they come from breeding of ancient Macedonians who were very tall with Slavs.We should not forget that Slavs have some of the tallest nations in Europe like Czechs(3rd tallest nation),Serbs,Croats and Poles.

In Europe, the Scandinavians, the Polish, Germans, Czechs, Serbs are the tallest one.

The frenchmen, Italiens and especielly the Portugals are the shortest

How is the russian then? Are they taller then the rest of their neighbours?

I am 183cm,I have spent quite some time in Poland since my long time gf in polish plus theres a lot of polakows in the UK. I have always had the impression that I am average for the polish height. among brits and spaniards i feel somewhat tall, so I think the western european average for young people must be around 178cm

Well ... in my view...

The taller the man the better :)
The shorter the woman the better :) ...

Easy equation ... lol ...

Average good height = 175 cm for the man; 165 cm for the woman

For man, the more the bonus ... for woman the less the better (not lower than 150 though :D ) ...

Well ... but all these are stereotype crap ... heart doesn't work like that :)

Statistically that would lead to "shortening" of the society. The kids from tall fathers and short mothers are usually somewhere between.

This isn't 1945 Lodz, 175cm is short for this day and age. A girl would look great at 175.

No... not really. I've seen tall parents give short (average) kids, and short parents give taller kids. Its about nutrition and some gene effect from past generations aswell. You cannot really decide these things beforehand.

And no need for the woman to kneel....;)

Umm ... actually it makes the woman look somehow more cuddly :)

I am not saying anything against any height ... just posted a view ... so lets not take it that far.

I don't know. Maybe slightly short but most girls would consider that a decent height for a man (it's 5'9" roughly).

:))))

Pennboy you are wise as usual ;)
Lodz, I was 175 after elementary school.

I don't know. Maybe slightly short but most girls would consider that a decent height for a man

I heard some story about some Chinese guy, who lived trough hell, extending his legs, surgeons succeeded to make them 12 cm longer, and his words of triumph after that torture :" Now when I'm 162 cm nobody can say that I'm short".

Everything is relative.
In Asia 175 cm can be giants height.
In most of the Europe probably causing some problems.

I guess I'm considered a midget then. ;)

I heard some story about some Chinese guy.

I've seen stories like that, too. They literally can't get jobs if they're too short. They get their legs lengthened in order to work and make a living.

I don't know about MOST of Europe but some particular parts of Europe, yes.

In America, a 5'9 man (175 cm) will definitely do just fine.

Throughout the 1990's I taught summer school in England, and every year I saw the visiting Japanese and Chinese kids get taller and taller as their diets changed from fish and rice to meat, meat meat. Does tall=better?

In some cultures taller & lighter complexion are considered better.
