I guess there's no way of me saying this without looking like a moody self-absorbed teenager, but hey-ho.

I'm 17 and I'm short, about 5"3/4 to be exact and to be brutally honest, I hate it.

Don't get me wrong, it's not like people make fun of me or anything, even though I've always been one of the shortest people in my year.

I just want to be average-ish height really, Mainly for confidence reasons

I was just wondering if anyone knows anything that can help me in my epic quest? to be honest I don't do that much exercise any more, although I'm planning to start swimming in the next week or so (I hate the idea of going to the gym).

My immediate family are all quite short, but my brother is the tallest being 22 and about 5"8.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Females' sexual attraction towards males may be determined by the height of the man.[35] Height in men is associated with status or wealth in many cultures (in particular those where malnutrition is common),[36] which is beneficial to women romantically involved with them. One study conducted of women's personal ads support the existence of this preference; the study found that in ads requesting height in a mate, 80% requested a height of 6 feet (1.8 m) or taller.

I'm pretty tall, and I don't much care for it. I figure if I was shorter though, I probably wouldn't like it that much either.

That sir, is scientific proof that you are never going to get laid.

I've heard everything from stretching to drinking more milk will help with height, but what it comes straight down to is Genetics.

Maybe you're a late bloomer, I had kids in my high school not grow until they were 17. But as expected, you probably won't be 6'. Just wait it out, and take pride in who you are. Nothing is more of a downer than lack of confidence.

i'm short as **** as well. 5'5. there's no use getting hung up on genetics. the only thing that "sucks" about being short (aside from maybe having to climb to reach things in the supermarket), is that you usually have to be "cooler" than average for people to respect you. same with fat people...that's just the way social interactions between people work. and it's not just teenagers and young adults

SQUATS OATS AND DEADLIFTS (seriously, heavy compound exercises increase test levels). Also eat more and get plenty of sleep, you might have a little bit more in ya.

I am thoroughly confused. How tall are you?

Proper way: 5'6", is that it? Close to that?

Also, I'm only 5'7"...and it's really not that big of a deal. It's when the short person lets it get to them the problem arises, I mean, yeah, I could see some attractive female and think, "She'd be into me if I was taller" and then I remember, no she wouldn't, I don't have any money.

Embrace your differences. Yes you are small and yes you'll probably be small for all of your life but is that really a bad thing? Look at Warwick Davis(yes he's 3'6'' so slightly different story) he used his height to his advantage and now he is a huge success. Now obviously it's a bit harder to do this if you're not an actor, but it's possible.

I just have to hope I'm a late bloomer really, I don't think I've ever had a noticeable growth spurt so a combination of exercise and healthier eating is only going to increase my chances slightly.

Edit: It appears I completely cocked up typing my height I'm about 5'3"

Being 5 and 3/4 inches tall must be tough. You probably have tiny trashcans that make the trash men mad. Probably thinking that you are just being mean. But then they realise you're short. But you live in an average size house. So technically, you live in a mansion. You're pretty well off in life, stop complaining. Some people can't afford mansions.

The good news, TS, is that you're only 17. Most males don't stop growing until they are 25. So, maybe you'll grow a few more inches.
#29
There's absolutely nothing you can do about your height, so you really shouldn't worry about it. If you want to make up for your height, the best thing you can do is ignore your height. Pro-actively joke about your height in social scenarios if it ever pops up and let it slide. Worrying about it, like you know, will hurt your confidence, but confidence is a much bigger key to being attractive than being tall. Seriously. Let every worry about your height slide and think how so brilliantly awesome you are, you don't need to give two shits about your height.

5 inches and 3/4?

this might help though:

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

start liking the idea of going to the gym.

at first you're going to feel self-conscious because you won't lift as much as everyone else, but grab a buddy to workout with and just do it. everyone has to start somewhere, no one is going to make fun of you. building up your body and looking good is a huge confidence booster, believe me.

I'm your height TS and I'm 18, I feel your pain. It's terrible because most women have a 'you must be this tall to enter relationship with' clause in their binding contract of togetherness. I've learned to accept it though, not much you can do to change it.
