Height is an attribute that cannot be controlled, so women should not discriminate against men based on their height, it is wrong.

I was about to write that. I can't do anything shorter than that cos I'm tall too. Plus my baby love is that range

It depends on the babes height and preference. Some babes don't mind their men climbing on stools to kiss the bride

Is it not funny that girls who prefer tall guys are short ones? I am 6'3, but what matters most is the worth of a man in the bedroom an in the boardroom. Not tall for nothing men without much to offer their generation.

Wow I have had a small growth spurt since my last post.

I am smack bang on 5'10 now got measured by my doctor at 178cm so 3 cm in less than a year is great news.

Yeah I think an earlier poster was correct.

Seems to be 5'6-5'7 for Naija men and 5'2-5'3 for naija women.

My excuse for being tall is because I live in UK.

Shyone,

Ask you fiance to teach you about Nigerian culture. Ask him some of the Nigerian dishes and ask him to teach you how to make a simple dish like peppered soup and fufu since he is Yoruba.

This would be a perfect time to get to know his culture before you guys get married. My husband and his family taught me the basics of the Igbo culture. I am still learning and it is important for me learn for the sake of our future children. It is not that complicated once you understand the basics.

I can't speak on Yoruba culture in depth so I can only answer the general questions however I am sure you can find some Yorubas on this site that will teach you their culture if your fiance can't teach you.

Ohh ok

thank you for the correction

I really am not sure about average height - I just don' t keep up with it

Do you know what the average height is for women and men in the U.S.?  I find that I am taller than the majority of my female friends.  The only time I was the shortest one in a group of women was when I was always with my sister-in-laws, my deceased husband's sisters.  They are 6ft 2, and 6ft and 5ft 11 inches.  I was the shortest in that group.  I was amazed.  Also, when I modeled, one other girl and I were the shortest because all the other females towered above us in their bare feet.  I was surrounded by Amazons.  But here lately in Indiana, I am the tallest - that is when I pay attention.  I am usually so engrossed in trying to remember how to drive (he used to do the driving) and when shopping - I am soo unaware of people around me - I can't really recall how tall, how short or even their clothes or faces.

Naija guys cannot be 5' 9. That is the average height of UK, Swiss, Australian and New Zealand men.

Naija men most likely is 5' 6 or 5' 7.

Maybe southern women are taller but I can almost guarantee you 5'7 would not be average.

Otherwise they will be regarded as the tallest women on Earth.

Most people have no idea of their real height and over-exaggerate it. Moreso, women that include heels. I am yet to meet any woman below 5' 8 that has accurately said her height.

The people that do know are the ones that are really really tall, like dayokanu and mukina, as they would have got measured sometime.

I remember one 5'9 foool in London telling me he was 6ft. I was looking at him like if he took drugs because I could tell his height instantly.

Japs are quite tall. Same height or even taller than Nigerians. Most likely 5' 2.

Chinese females will probably be 5' 0.

I don't know what average height is for men or women here in the U.S.

I know that areas are different.  I have never seen as many TALL WHITE PEOPLE in my life than when I moved to Wisconsin.  I think it is the pure water in Wisconsin and the farm fed people that are there.   I don't see many tall white people in the South Bend area.  But I see more tall blacks in the Indiana area.  The Southern States I see soo many fat AA's - I am stunned - the women, alot of them are huge and big boned and really tall - alot of them - I think the farm lands in those areas are responsible as well.

I don't know about what is or isn't average - but I think Tall definitely isn't average here and or really short either.  I think maybe 5'7 is an average height for women in U.S.  I am not sure about average height for men in U.S.

For where?

Are you including heels?

Average female height in UK is about 5' 4, most will say 5' 7 because they somehow always include their heels in their height measurement.

I don't think average height for US females can be above 5' 5.

5ft 7 is quite short. 5ft6-7 is average for women

How tall are you shy-one. I guess since you model, You would be taller than that. Now add heels to it

I don't know what it is about "shorter men" but they have really BIG ATTITUDE - THEY WALK REALLY TALL - a whole lot of them. That is soo sexy to me. I have seen really tall men that are meek mannered and then these "shorter guys" are soo bold and masculine - I LOVE IT.

The more I read this thread and look at sources such as the super eagles team it is looking like the national average for men is around 5'7-5'8 (170-172) for nigerians living in the country.

I am a nigerian that lives in the UK aged only 18 and I am 5'9(grew 2 inches since last march) and I think this estimate to be very accurate when you take into account MANY accounts of information and some common sense to be honest.

Whilst Nigerians are not the tallest on average we are well in there in regards to height and studies show that we are getting taller as the country improves further so now it is our chance to become the best in africa if we try.

My dad born in kwara state is 6'1 and my mom born in UK is 5'7 which is remarkable since she is the tallest of her 2 other sisters and taller than my 5'2 grandma.

I am certain that I will grow to be between 5'10-5'11 still since my dad grew late.
