According to an article in The Atlantic, this is what the average man looks like in the listed countries. See how you think he compares to yourself before and after LL:

interesting how low the average.  But if we go to the streets These places in the "average" is not it.  190 in the Netherlands, 184 in the USA, 176 in Japan, 180 in France.

the average for the neverlands is not 190 that is bull shi*.

1)Average Height by Country (Youth:20-30 years)
 Country/Average Male Height (cm)/population
 
Netherlands 183 cm

2)Average Height (Entire population/adults-All ages over 20 years,20+)
 Country/Average Male Height (cm)/population

Netherlands 180.6 cm


and there is no proof that women only make their prejudices on height based on males 20-30 years old. rather it can be strongly argued that they prefer normality and actually judge based on all male heights available to their persons across all ages for males they interact with.

so no you don't even get to use 183 as your example. but 190 is certainly bull shi*. it really does get annoying having to deal with people and their mental delusions over and over again where everyone recons the average height for their country 300 cm tall.

Completely bs.

That numbers are far from reality.
Yes, there are a lot of men 1,85 in Europe but there are also a lot of under 1,70, especially in southern countries like Italy, France, Spain, Greece etc.
Some people (like you) only tend to see tall people and not short, so they think that everyone is tall. I've read in another topic that you said that women in your country are 1,78-1,80. Is this the land of giants? I don't think so. Look more careful my friend and don't have delusions.

Anyway, the average height of every country is estimated by health professionals and is accurate.

I'm pretty sure the average is about 183-184 cm in the Netherlands. The Dinaric Alps average is about 186 cm, though.

There are some villages in the north-east(Friesland, Groningen) of the Netherlands that actually are 190 cm on average or a bit taller. But for the whole country it definitely isn't 190 cm.

Where abounce in Holland are you from? Man, I would feel SO short if I were in Holland... Even after my first LL session I'd still be below average in Dutch standards :p

I'm from the province North-Holland(It's actually more on the west side of the country than north).  People here are 6'0-6'1 on average but for my school it is a bit higher for some reason.  People in the south of the Netherlands are only like 181(5'11) in comparison. 
Tallest ethnic groups are Frisians(Groningen, Friesland) and Dinarids(Dinaric alps).  Here the average is between 6'1-6'2.  So now you know you should never pay a visit to these places if you're below 5'11 Grin

Why?
I think that somewhere where the majority of men are tall, someone of average height will feel and look more unique.
I know that in Germany and North Europe, where most of men are tall and usually blonde, dark and average height men (like the Turks who have plenty immigrants there) have great chances with local women.
Even if I am not a Turk, I'm sure I should visit Netherlands.

Well, i didn't mean as in that you have no shot with the girls or something.  I meant it for people who are really insecure about their height.  Going to a place with an average height of 6'0 for guys and 5'7 for girls really isn't going to make someone who has insecurities about his height more secure lol.

Three men look great and one is slightly overweight.Not all men in USA are fat or unfit.
And I don't get why the obbsesion with being over 6' as a male.Most women I know don't like men over 6'.Actually all women I know don't like men over 183 cm.Maybe there are some exceptions,very tall women likeing tall men..
And the height does not matter all the time..you all have seen The Tudors.Rhys Meyers is so much shorter than Henry Cavil,and still...he has all women going nuts about him.I 'm talking about fans.But,at the end,we can't all be famous! Smiley

No, it probably has more to do with whom Galaxystar chooses as friends. She's a nice girl, so she's going to choose friends whom don't judge men according to something outside of their control (height), barring aggressive ll surgery.
