Men, how tall are you?

5'11" Happy because my wife can wear heels and not be towering over me :)
My dad is like 5'2" so yeah I am happy with my height.
My grandfather on the mothers side was a runt at my height so I guess I got his height :)
Wouldn't mind being taller for the serving but I can't complain.

6ft. Which doesn't all that impressive until you see me standing next to any other member of my immediate and extended family.

I feel like a God among insects at family gatherings.

I'm happy. 6'2" to match my idol Hugh Laurie would have been nice, however.

5'8" and not happy about it. I suffer from short man's syndome. Luckily, I did beat my dad by 3 inches so I can't complain too much.

I wonder where all the other Asians are that are usually posting their videos... hmmm...

5'11" (1.80) and a serenity prayer advocate...couldn't change it so I'm happy but I did change my weight and did so (50 pounds lighter than my "peak").

5'5" Very happy. Used to get picked on, as a child, but I learned a lot of lessons and learned about who I was. I'm by far the shortest male in my family, father was 5'10".

5'7"and I wish I was taller... Most of my gfs were taller than me when wearing heels and that somehow bugs me... Also, you have much less girls to choose from :p ;)

5'9" and I'd rather be around 6 foot, but I think I overcompensated for my height in sports, so it helped me a little. Good news is that my sons inherited height from my wife's side, so they'll both be taller than me.

I am quite curious to know if whether playing sports, such as tennis, makes you grow taller? And I have also heard that sportsplayers are usually taller than people who don't play sports as much. Is this true? If so which sport makes you grow the tallest? Does playing tennis regularly help increase height?

6 ft 1, to be more exact 1.85 m. BTW, the same height as Sampras, Federer and Nadal. So more of less a GOAT height.

I'm about 1/4 under 6". Didn't grow to my ful potential - my dad is 6'3" and my mom 5'9". I was very short as a child and had to fight for dear life on daily basis. I grew taller to almost 25 year of age. I'm pretty happy. It's very relative anyways - I'm on the tall side in Vancouver and somewhat short when I go to the old country...

I don't think playing any sport will make you significantly taller (or shorter) vs. not playing sports.

Same height as McEnroe... 5'11"1/2. I should have gone pro.:)
Happy with height. Could lose a couple pounds though.

5'5, no problem. My wife is about an inch taller. When we go out, I tell her to wear heels, so we can blame the height difference on the heels lol. Also, what I lack in height I make up for in width.

6' 2" - should have been 2 inches taller at least. Feel like I got short-changed.
You must be considered a giant in India. Whenever I go back there, I myself feel pretty tall compared to here in the US, and I'm only about 5 foot 9 or so. Not the tallest guy around, but definitely well above the average man, whereas in America I am very average, or even a bit below.

5"11". It can be noted that each generation in the US is on average an inch taller than the previous generation. My first reaction to this was that perhaps it's due to improved (or at least different) nutrition, but in fact it seems to be due to selective breeding. Studies show that in any generational cohort the taller men are not only more likely to have children than the shorter ones (apparently due to preferential selection by females), but interestingly also, the tallest of the men who have children seem to have a larger number of children than the somewhat shorter ones who have children. Perhaps this is biological in some way, perhaps the women who want the most children seek the tallest men, perhaps the taller men themselves want the largest families.
