    Opposites

    Tonight after playing at the shop, I headed out to meet my girlfreind. For some reason every where we go we get strange looks. I think it might have to do wth the fact that she is 4'11 in heels and im almost 6'6'. Oh well back to your regular programs.

    I'm not as tall as you (about 6' 1"), but I used to date a girl who was about 4' 7" tall. I know what you mean about getting looks.

    I'm 6'1" and Janet is 5'2". Height doesn't determine love.

    My Mom always called Glenna and I Mutt and Jeff. I'm 6'2", she's 5'1". It's only awkward when you dance! Thank goodness we're Baptists. Jim.

    Well, I just looked it up, and it appears that you are in the top 3% of the US population for (men's) height and she's in the bottom 3% of the US population for (women's) height. I assumed 6'6" for you and 4'10" for her.

    So all those stares are probably just people thinking, "isn't it wonderful that they found each other--they have so much in common!"

    my cousin's daughter has a situation like that. she barely clears 5'2", and he's about 6'4". funny thing is, is that he's one of the shorter ones of his family. the mom and dad are about 6'4" or 5" each, and the tallest of the bunch is closing in on 7'.
