    I think it's different depending on sex.

    Males: 6'1
    Females: 5'9

    Males start looking stupid and lanky when they get above 6'3 unless they eat massive amounts which will come back to haunt them when they're elderly.

    Women, according to me, look strange when they're tall!

    I´d say around 1.80-1.87 meters. (I´m too lazy to convert that into the US-feet-system now )

    I'm most comfortable with guys who are 6'3", although anything from 6'1" to 6'6" is tolerable for me. It's just that 6'1" doesn't seem so great when I'm wearing heels, and 6'6" is kind of overbearing and creepy at times. My brother is ~6'3" and most males in my family have that height. I hope to marry a guy about that height who has women in the family around my height.

    Plus, if a guy is around 6'3" or 6'4" I fit snugly right under his chin, which doesn't make much sense to me, mathematically speaking, but it's comfy and cozy and feels good (as in, I feel safe). I don't get the same feeling of safety when I'm hugged by a guy who is a lot taller than I am, and definitely not when I'm hugged by a guy who is close to my height or shorter.



    That's the ideal height for a Germanic male for ME, though. I think that societies need some variation in height. I think that guys should hover between 6' and 6'3" in the general population, with some guys who are 5'9"-5'11", some who are 6'4"-6'6" and then very few who are under 5'8" or above 6'7". That's pretty much how it is around here.

    Well, since my boyfriend is about 6'3.5 (192 cm), I'll say 6'3.5

    5'9 is tall for females.

    Average height is somewhere between 5'4-5'5

    I agree with the measurements you provided. Ideal height difference between males/females is around 3-4 inches. I am not sure, but I'm willing to wager the races on the upper end of the progressive spectrum exhibit less dimorphism in this area too. There is no ideal Germanic height of course, just as there is no ideal Romance height. Ideal height depends on subrace. I approach 6ft1, and I would agree that anything in excess of 6ft3 for men or 6ft for women is too lanky. The average is 5ft9 for men and 5ft4 for women if I am correct, but this is not broken down into subraces, and thus is a worthless measure.

    I'm not sure either.

    the difference should be around 5 inches, but is subjected to variations.

    If both the partners are very tall, than the difference should be more marked.
    If both are very short, the difference between them should be minor.

    Well I know that the average heights as commonly computed indicate a 5 inch difference between males and females, but what I wonder is whether this is true of all races and subraces. Dimorphism is not so strong amongst races such as Nordids and Meds, so I am wondering if the height gap is not perhaps smaller here.

    I'd say, around 6 feet.

    I am very small for a Germanic man (or Dutchman---average height here is 6 feet), I am just 5.6
