first, i'd have to say I'm sorry...cause I'm kinda guilty of the basketball question myself. Second, guys aren't scared of tall women, we're just not used to talking/dating a girl that's taller than we are. That's probably why we come out with the basketball question, I guess it's something to break the ice? Don't hate your height, just use it and your abilities to there fullest....damn, this is sounding like an after school special!
anyway, take care and don't be to hard on yourselves.

Everyone expected me to be taller since my dad is 6'2", but I haven't grown in years.

first, learn from your mistakes. i'm sure most tall girls are a bit annoyed with the whole basketball thing.

second, i'd think talking to tall girls would be good for the neck...full range of motion and whatnot..

You say that as if he'd be looking at your eyes in the first plays...his head is going to be tilted down regardless.

whats that about dutch ppl being the longest? did any of u miss the massai program on discovery? i wouldnt really know where ppl would be the longest but if the dutch population is worlds longest..
this thread made me think of this: i have this faint memory of reading/hearing something about inside heating. according to that source ppl with inside heating will be longer (not in one lifetime but over some generations) than ppl in warm countries with lots of 'outside heating'.
but of course theres always exceptions, could be that all dutchies outside of my province are so much taller than the ppl here that we get a higher average...

i'm 5'7" or 8?? i have no clue. every time i get measured (yes, always without shoes) it's different. one time someone said i was 5'4"!

my husband (doctor gonzo) is 5'11" and i'm as tall as him in my 3-4" shoes, but otherwise i'm about at his shoulders.

EDIT: and yes, i wish i was taller.
(i've been editing my posts too much today...)
