I don't know if tall people think they're so awesome or misunderstood but I present you Tall Magazine.

This seems to be the way society is headed where in 10 years a guy will be able to watch the Greek-American Distribution Manager cable network because other people just don't understand.

My wife told me about an episode of Oprah she saw the other day. Two midgets (short people, little people, verically challenged, whatever you feel is appropriate) who were married and drove a Hummer. They said they wanted the biggest vehicle they could get.

I was flipping around and saw that episode, it drew me in
They have a ladder to get into it, but it is only an H2.

We are awesome! :) But honestly, if they're showing taller fashion and items made for tall people, I'd love it. I'm marrying a man who nears 7', I'm pushing 6'- we don't fit into an average sized anything (James doesn't fit into Jeeps, Durango's, or most other cars comfortably).

Yeah, tall people have such a hard time in today's society. :\

Seriously, I'm 5'10" tall. I've actually been called short on several occasions, especially when I was living in Denver. In the world of online datng, I've found that my matches increase a bunch when I temporarily lie about my height, and change it from 5'10" to 6'. (I always change it back.) I wonder about women who are 5'2" or 5'4" who say that they won't date anyone under 6' tall.

You wanna know what I think of short women that say that? Stay in your own freakin' height bracket! I lost count of the times I've had to date a short man because some tall guy was dating a midget. ARGH!

What is the big deal I've been getting Hung magazine for years. ;)
I won't try that link at work . . . come to think of it, I won't try it at home either ;)

If I saw a guy with the "Life May be Short, but I'm Not" mug on the homepage, I would immediately dislike him.

Short guys have "issues". I am a midget and I date average- to tall- guys. So there!

It was just a bad joke. The link is to an Asian actor's website. NOT PORN = Harmless.

I'm a minority. We're only 5.5 million and we're all 6'2" and up. Yeah it's tough.

On a serious note When I was innocent I had no idea that short women would go for a guy just because he's tall -I didn't know it's such a sought after trait.

I'm in this minority also (6'2)

I've dated a few tall girls (5'10, 6') and a few short girls (5'2 and 5') I prefer tall girls, they are easier to kiss, without having to be a contortionist.

Don't forget the benefit of being a tall man is that you tend to get more respect when dealing with the public. At my last job i was the junior person, yet people at public meeting usually thought I was in charge and would speak and listen to me more then my supervisor (5'4 or so)

In my last job I replaced a girl about 5'2". When my assistant saw some of the poeple she had trouble with she warned me that these guys would get ugly. She was amazed that they were very civil. I'm 6'0" and pushing 275# . The only guy that got ugly was this little guy. I never quite figured that one out. We had a cop there that was 6' 7" and about 300#, folks would just get out of his way.

I'm the flip side of this situation--I'm somewhat tall for a woman (5'9") but I'm engaged to a shorter man (5'6") who has no "issues." And I always said I won't date someone shorter than me...

I'm 5'1, Rob is 6 even. To be perfectly honest, he's a little too tall for me. And I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm a little bit too short for him. But really, what does it matter? However, one of my ex-boyfriends was 6'4, and I always felt like I was mountain climbing.

Thanks Guap. I just want to know if he has big hands to return the serve. ;)
