Ok wierd topic just over a year ago i was looking at this but who cares its mainly genetic theres a list somewhere on the net about race defining height
Let me explain. I am sixteen years old and I am 5'6" tall. However, over the past few months, I have become very self conscious about my height. Every time I go out and pass people (especially girls) taller than me, it gets me down. If I turn on the news, it disheartens me to see soldiers and police and the like, because I know I am not as tall as them. Most boys I know are slightly taller than me (about 5'7"-5'11"), although most girls I know are smaller then me- but only just, at around an inch or two. I've never felt small, but I do now. And with that comes a sense of worthlessness, of not being a 'complete' human being. It always annoys me when I see girls my age taller than me. I know men don't stop growing until their 21 (and if I grow an inch a year, I may be six foot by the time I stop, which would be ideal but unlikely), but it does get to me sometimes.
How tall are you?
Any tips/advice to me to help me grow or make me feel better?

Pfft, try being 5'6'' at 23 years old. Most high school boys are taller than me!
I never add friend codes.

Need help with anything, PM me.
I am an asexual, non-religious loner. I prefer to keep to myself most of the time to keep the mind-numbing lassitude of idle gregariousness at bay, but if you have something interesting to talk about feel free to message me. I am a naturally friendly person, until you give me a reason not to be.
And that is what I'm talking about. It's not dwarf height, and certainly nothing to phone home about, but I'd say around 80% of boys in my year are taller than me. There's still hope for me, I'm not a lost cause, but it is frustrating to say the least. Especially if on of your mates is a 6'3" black geezer (although he's a year older than me, I doubt I'll be six foot when I'm seventeen).

I am 5'11" and have been since I was like 17 (I'm 24 now). Being average height, I can't really relate to your situation, but you aren't even that short. Sure, some girls like really tall guys, which seems to be one of your concerns, but not all of them do. Height isn't that big of a deal IMO and you're still young and could grow some more anyways. You'll be just fine.

Your emotions are normal and you are going to keep growing. And if you are worried about girls, you are going to outgrow most of them anyway. Finally, height does not associate to status for most people as much as you may believe.
My advice to you is to stop worrying about it.

Yeah man, don't let it get to you. I'm 6'2" at 16, and neither of us have stopped getting taller yet! Don't get your spirits down, things will only go up from here (pun intended).
