I don't want to keep going off topic on the other thread "Having trouble getting past the first date.", so here we are.

It’s the only physical trait that cannot be seen in pics.


You can if it’s a full body photo.



No you can't , unless your are posing next to other people.


Yes you can. Adult Heads are roughly the same size on average. If one person is 6 heads high and another 4, it’s quite easy to calculate someone’s height. Also if someone’s head seems large in proportion to their body, it’s highly probable they have a small body.

Unless they’re one of those pop vinyl figures, or have an abnormally tiny head. :P



Let's play a game:

Hale_bopp and Fireblossom....since you claim to be so good at this: guess the height of this couple

Also head to body ratio is roughly the same as well.

What does this have to do with dating? Just trying to prove you cannot? My instant guess would be they are between 5 foot 8 and 6 foot. Want me to guess properly? I’ll need to do some calculations.

How do you know their height, are they your family?

Because it was split from a thread in L&D, and also this is can be associated with girls trying to guess the heights of guys in pics they see on dating sites.

Yes.

Waiting for other replies before telling.

You can see their heads and body, so what happened to your magical formula?

So hale_bopp said: between 5 foot 8 and 6 foot.

Fireblossom, it's your turn.

Other ladies can reply too, come on, demonstrate us your "I can know the guy's height from picture" skill.

Difficult, because if they were in separate photos I'd have guessed her to be shorter compared to him than she actually is.

I don't claim that I can tell from photos how tall someone is. If I have to guess, I'll say he is likely not extremely tall, as guys standing next to a woman who is not much shorter than them are usually not extremely tall.
I'll guess he's between 1.70m and 1.80m but that's just a random guess.

That said, it's possible to guess from some photos if someone is tall or short, but not generally in all and some can be misleading if the photo is taken from an unusual angle.

smudge guesses the lady is at least 5 ft 6. As for the man, 4-5 inches taller.

I would guestimate the guy's about 5 foot 7-8, and the woman is about 5 foot 2-3, since she's wearing heels.

Low 170's cm for the guy; around upper 150's for the woman.

This post doesn't make any sense.

If the head to body ratio is always the same, AND head size is always the same, then we would all be the same height.

If head size is always about the same then short folks must have, on average, bigger heads relative to their height (ie a different head to body ratio) than do taller folks.

Based upon my quick and sloppy calculations: She is five foot two, and he is five foot seven.

The tradition of rating race horses by how many "hands" tall they are got started because the width of adult men's hands are consistently four inches. .

So I quickly used the width of the guys hand, and marked off multiples of five times the width of his hand ( groups of 20 inches) to measure her, and then to measure the difference between him and her.

It's a trap. They must have some kind of extraordinary height. Boo's up to mischief again.

I would also guestimate that the photo was taken in the late 70s-early 80s.

Mum and Dad from back in the 1970's ?

Using H_B's magical formula the man works out to be about 5'4" for me.

**laughing out loud***


So far the numbers go like this:

hale_bopp said: between 5 foot 8 and 6 foot.
NorthWind says he's 1.70m and 1.80m
smudge: "the lady is at least 5 ft 6. As for the man, 4-5 inches taller."
hale_bopp said: between 5 foot 8 and 6 foot.
kraftie: " 170's cm for the guy; around upper 150's for the woman."
naturalplastic: She is five foot two, and he is five foot seven
Soliloquist: the man works out to be about 5'4

This drives my obsessive aspie mind crazy. Gotta be more organized.

Okay here is the score card, version I, in Imperial units:

Hale Bopp: Guy 5'8" to 6', girl no estimate
NorthWind: Guy 5'7" to 5' 11", girl no estimate
Smudge: Guy 5'10", girl 5'6"
Krafty: Guy 5'7", girl 5'
Naturalplastic: Guy 5'7", girl 5'2" (eyes of blue, has anybody seen my gaaal?).
Soloquist: Guy 5'4", girl no estimate

To:Hale Bopp and NorthWind. If youre gonna give yourself a point spread as wide as four inches you might as well just say "I have no idea how tall he is". Lol!
