    I'm 6'4 and would rather be 6' or 5'11... especially in this country.

    I mostly agree with you. I am a fraction under 5'10" The problem I have with shopping is that it is hard to find a 28-29" waist on my pants. Usually, the smallest I can find is 30", which is a little loose on me.

    That is about as tall as a hot model I knew when I lived in Shandong, China about 10 years ago.

    I'm not denying there are any females above 5'10".
    It's just pretty rare, at least around here.
    And females are usually biologically mature by middle school. I won't say, "as big as they're ever going to get", because many of them will get fatter as they get older. But most will not get much taller.
    So a 10th grade student having achieved what is probably her full adult height is not very surprising.

    Here, I guess, there are so many hispanics, and so much hispanic blood even in the anglo native Texan population, that people just tend to be a bit shorter.
    Hispanics are a couple or three inches shorter than anglos, on average.
    Among such a population, my height (or lack thereof) doesn't feel horribly abnormal, or like some sort of major handicap.

    It's not all that uncommon in Chicago for women to be 5'8" or 5'10". I've always dated tall women, even though I'm just average height. I once dated a model who was 6'1".

    I think the fact that I had such a delayed growth spurt is part of why taller women appeal to me. Basically, I was used to women being as tall or taller than me until I was about 17 or 18.

    The other reason is I LOVE long slender legs.

    Funny you write that. My BF and I both were in the Chicago region. It seemed like I was surrounded by tall, long legged Amazon women. I'm 5' 2" and most people guess that I'm 15 or 16. He used to tell people at the bar that I was his 15 year step-sister, sister-in-law or cousin.
