@ Rob - Silly me to fall for a prankster! (I'm bloody good at that! I have to be more careful!)
The trouble is, I've just lowered his average quite a bit, and even though I did think he was honest and wholesome for all of half a day, I doubt if he'll think it was worth it! 😡
Editor Rob: I don't know if I'd guess under 5ft 9, but I wouldn't worry about average guess.

I have just been looking through the list of Michaels and I came across a familiar face - that of former EastEnder Michael Greco! He's listed as 5ft9.5, and my immediate reaction was to think, "Surely Michael can't be quite as tall as that! That is the upper end of average! The guy is conventionally handsome, yes, dark-haired✴🌟✴, sure, but no way is he approaching 'tall' and 5ft9.5 is, in my humble opinion, approaching tall!"
Then I went to see what had been written, comment-wise, about Michael....
I found a single, solutary comment - and it seems to be from the guy himself, thanking Rob for the listing and then adding that he is, in actual fact, 5ft7.5!
Now if this is the real Michael Greco, I think it is incredibly sporting of him to make that confession and, though I had no particular thoughts about him as a person either way before, my opinion of him has just soared!
Today, assuming the comment did come from the authentic Mr Greco, and he is 5ft7.5, I am am going to put just that, with a bonus half-inch for his honesty, so 5ft8 it is!
... and here's a little afterthought:
I've never understood the need for a guy to be 'tall, dark and handsome!' Shorter, fair-haired guys are just as appealing, as are medium-sized redheaded ones! We should accept each other how ever we come! Wouldn't it be boring if everyone was the same, or only a certain type considered suitable as ideal to procreate!
I often think I am exceptionally lucky to find attractiveness in every type of person, and I genuinely do, and I'm happy to say that I've known plenty of others like that in my lifetime! Variety really IS the spice of life!
I would say, it is unlikely to have been Michael. He certainly can look distinctly average, but I remember seeing a photo With Louise Jameson
who I met a few times, and given she might have near 1 inch more heel, I think somewhere in the 5ft 9 range isn't that far from the truth.
