I'm 5'9" to 5'10". 18 years old. But I'm not sure if I'm happy with my height or not. Sometimes I feel tall, sometimes not. Ideally, I'd be at least 6 feet. But we can all dream right?

you may be able to take some hgh to get taller. i have no clue if that works but i remember hearing about some kid taking it when i was young and he was very tall. that could all be fictitious but time may run out on it being useful.

im 5'8. ideally, i think 6ft or so is a great height. i cant really say that my height has hurt me in any way. i think being taller gives you an advantage when it comes to meeting girls at clubs. being good looking is more valuable getting an attractive girl and pretty much anything else. being short and ugly is very sad.

5'2"

While it'd be nice to be a little taller, I like being super short.

I am 5' 6" and love just where I am at. My wife is 5' and I have always prefered women that were in that range or shorter. I remember going out with friends to a club and these two girls walk in, one with long long legs and the other very small and petite. My buddy says to check out the hot chick. I am and it wasn't that tall chick he was looking at.

Same as you, 90sman.

I'm happy with my height.

The only height which matters to me is the height of my stock account

Im 5'5'' and would love to be taller. Boyfriend thinks its cute that I am short. The only thing I like about it is when I wear heels I don't tower over him. If I could pick I would like to be anywhere from 5'8'' - 5'11''. Stuff looks better from up there. I only know thanks to heels.

I'm just a hair under 5' 5" and I'm fine with my height. I'm pretty much right in the middle among most people, so I don't stand out for being one extreme or another. I usually don't have to worry about having pants specially tailored, which the tall and short always have to do.

I've always preferred guys between 5'8" to 5'10". That height seems to be a good "fit." I also always had the perception (probably unfair, but it's how I feel) that tall guys are "doofy." Yes, it's a very articulate phrase from my teen years. But I was always turned off by guys who were tall and had to duck under things, and always seemed either awkward (AKA "doofy") or tall guys who were way too proud of their tall stature. Flash back to high school hallways: all the guys whose heads could be seen above the crowd were either 1.) athletes who thought they were great or 2.) big dorks.

Also could never date a guy shorter than I am (I tried, really, but it was way too awkward--as I was now the "big tall doof").

In adulthood we don't have such types anymore, but my bias has stuck with me.
