    It just occurred to me that soon, all my siblings (who are all younger than me) will be taller than me. My 16 year old sister is taller. My 13 year old brother is taller. My 12 year old sister is my height. :sigh:

    My sister is probably in your shoes.
    I'm taller than some of my school friends, my mum, my sister, most of my coisins, one of my aunts, my grandparents and loads of other people.

    I'm taller than my brother by like 2 inches. I'm 5'11 and he's 5'9. We're twins btw. Makes me feel superior.

    About even but I beat him in arm wrestles but I think that's due to technique.

    What age were you when you were 5'10 ? Just asking because currently I'm like 5'11 and wish to be 6ft1 or above as well but I read somewhere that most boys stop growing at 16/17 and I'm almost 17 so it's a bit of a downer if this is true. Not saying I'm not happy at 5'11 as it is a good height I would just like to be the tallest in my family tbh.

    I thought you were talking about when you were younger lmao. I didn't read any other posts that you said before so I didn't know the context.

    When you're a girl, no one really cares if you're short. Least of all men, provided he isn't 6ft 5 or something

    To answer your question I think it is possible to grow after 17. But a growth spurt is unlikely.

    Intensive exercise will increase human growth hormone. If your joints haven't fused you could add an inch or so.

    Same same, kinda. Everyone in my family is taller than me (I'm the oldest). People think my younger siblings are older than me most of the time
