I'm only 5'10" so I'd love to be 6'1" or 6'2". Women don't like short.
I like being 6'4". My wife is 5'6".
It is a pain finding clothes that fit my length. The perfect fit is a 36x33 pant and a medium/large tall shirt. I find DKNY and Perry Ellis has the best fit.

Early in the morning I'm about 5'9". I feel about an inch shorter by the end of the day, though.
I wouldn't change my height. Don't see what the point would be.
The height of the different people I've been around in my life is interesting. When I was younger, my friends were all taller than me, and they were thicker, stronger guys. Now, most people I'm around are shorter than me. The people I work with are Hispanic, and range from about 5'3" to 5'7'. Of my two best friends, one is about 5'6" (from Cairo originally), but the other is about 6'2", and weighs 330 (an original Central Florida redneck). I guess it takes all kinds.
I'm 5'4" which is a comfortable height but I need to have some babies with a tall dude because my family is shrinking with every generation.
Their dad was tall; not sure exactly how tall he is; he kept growing after we split up. I guess he's around 6'2" by now.
My kids are proportioned more like me and the rest of my family, though: short legs, long waist. We are a notoriously short-legged clan. I don't think I've ever owned a pair of pants that I didn't have to cut four inches off the legs, or else roll them up about five times.
