    Stupid Genetics...

    So yesterday I kind of felt like a bomb was dropped on me. I'm 4'10 and I haven't grown beyond that since 5th grade. My doctor, seeing this told me the cold hard truth that I was probably done growing. Which is more than likely the truth. I'm not mad at my doctor, she was...

    I'm 15 and around 5'2

    or 5'3 which is just below average for my age and race. I'm shorter than my mom and most of my friends were already taller than their moms a few years ago. The Tanner stage calculator gives me 3.4 out of 5 which means I should be almost in the middle of a growth spurt by now. I...

    Want to Be 6'3 Ft

    I had always wanted to be taller. Maybe 6'3 ft since I was a kid. I always want to stand next to tall people and be amazed with their height when I was a kid. Maybe that started it all that made me bisexual, but nevermind that. I am happy to be bisexual right now. Back to the...

    So the guy I like is tall.

    Like, really tall. Today, we were just goofing around and he was laughing at our height difference. I got out a ruler and we measured. He's 1 foot and three and a half inches taller. I'm 4'9".

    I'm Small And Everyone Else Is Big

    I'm really tiny. I'm only 5 foot and while I am proportional, I just feel so small. My step-daughter whom is 12 is now 5'2, already above me. I feel like I don't have much authority when I'm small. Everyone else is around 5'5 to 5'8. I know part of my stunted growth has to do...

    I Hate Feeling Short!

    It's not the fact I'm short, (well, I kind of am) it's the fact I hate feeling short. I know three guy friends who are taller than me and we are about the same age. At times, I hate being around them because I always get the feeling that I'm short. One of them kept saying that I...

    Hi I'm 13 and only 5'0".

    I've been this tall since I was 11 and I haven't grown since then. I wish I can be like 5'5 or 5'8 and I hate being not about to reach ****. I dont know why tall people are complaining when being tall they can do more.

    I'm around 5"7 and I think I'm done growing :(

    my dad was 5"11 and my mom is 5"2. My younger brother is a lot taller than me and it's not fair. All my male cousins are taller too -_- maybe it's because I had anemia and pneumonia as a child?

    I Wish I Was 5' 8''

    I'm almost 5' 5'' feet tall, I wish I was around 5'8. My bf is 6' 1'', I look like a dwarf when I'm next to him wearing flats or sneakers. That's why I love heels and wedges, they help me even out my bf's height.
