...What's the deal with people giving so much importance to height? I'm really curious. Do people point how short/tall you are because of a personal complexe or because they like to "make fun" of others? I don't know. I guess it depends on the situation...
I'm a pretty tall person (1.75 cm if you were curious) and I was the 3rd tallest person in my class, during highschool (one guy was around 1.85 cm and one girl was 1.80 cm). I remember once telling that girl (jokingly, obviously) that I was glad I wasn't so tall...and let me tell you, it didn't go well. It turned out that that girl was quite sensitive (more than I imagined) and she started asking me what was my point and then she started crying...I felt so guilty afterwards and I realized my mistake. Ever since, I don't make any remarks about people's height. I've learned my lesson. I hope you will do the same.
Even though my sister is almost 4 years older, she's a few cm shorter than me. I believe I inherited the height gene from my dad. Well....he's almost 1.90 and he's very thin as well. :P
I often get remarks where people like to point out the fact that I'm so tall (though I think I have a normal height) and they either ask why I didn't do modelling or if I play basketball (in the best cases) but they also point out that I'm going to have a problem in finding a tall partner (hmm...guys really tend to get shorter nowadays, don't they?) or that I might look weird among my shorter friends. My answer is: SO WHAT? Does height matter that much? I don't think so. My best friend is so much shorter than me...I've always had shorter friends. :)) That didn't make them less interesting or fun to hang out with. Actually I have only one tall friend hahaha and even though she's almost 1.80 cm, she enjoys wearing high heels. I admire that. I don't wear 'heels. I got used to wearing flats. I do think I'm tall enough like this. But I do wear them on special occasions.
The thing is, I've learned to not make any jokes or remarks about people's height because it might make them feel uncomfortable or it might offend them. People are just as awesome either way: tall or short. :)
