Anyone look taller or shorter than they really are?

I have some friends that are around 5'8 but i look taller than them b/c my height is sort of tricky. They even say I am not 5'8 when i tell them my height. When i wear shoes, I am 5'9 and my hair adds probably another 2 inches. However, when i get a haircut, I look like i SHRUNK and look real short. That's why i always keep my spike afro going.
Is it me or am i so bothered by the 5'8 height? I just want to be 5'9 since that is average and 5'8 sounds like OH so close if you get what i mean.
I also see a lot of woman who say they prefer a guy to be AT LEAST 5'9. Does 5'8 and 5'9 mean that big of a difference to woman especially those shallow ones?

hmm I really dont think that one inch makes that much difference. I think 5'8 is a good height for an asian guy. Most asian girls are like 5'2 and under anyway. Im 5'5 for an asian girl people tell me that im very tall. Are you asian? I do look alot taller than I am because I have longer legs and shorter back. So my husband is a little taller he is only 5'7 and everyone thinks im taller and hes a lot shorter when he is still like 2 inches taller than me!! I guess that some people do look taller and some look shorter. Me cuz of long legs I look taller. He also pretty hunchbacked.
yes i am asian. 5'5 for you is a bit taller than average.

i think i look taller than that because my legs are slim, and longer than my body. my body is shorter than my legs..
also, when i wear high-heels, i look really tall! u wouldn't even think i am 5"4 lol.
i think 5"8 is an alright height..average :]

another case, my sister, she's 16 and 5'4 and a half... she's a bit chubby and she looks smaller than her height,, she got not short legs but not long legs like me.. were exactly opposite in terms of body type...
