    Yeah, it does suck. I'm stuck at 4"10.

    I'll never find a girl as short as me...

    It's not that bad. I'm at least taller than my eldest Chinese cousin, and that's great! :lol:

    I don't think girls are getting taller.. I'm 5"9 and I tower above my friends! The majority of boys I've been with have been shorter than me, not by much, but still!

    What's the height of the tallest girl in your school?

    Well, statistically, average heights and weights are increasing all the time in developed countries. I doubt it happened overnight, though... Perhaps you just live in a particularly nordic/athletically-inclined area??

    I live in a highly populated and ethnically diverse area... a 6'3 girl is NOT a rare sight...

    That does surprise me. I live in the centre of Manchester, and it's rare that I ever spot someone taller than me (I'm a 6'1 girl).

    Maybe you have a case of Baader-Meinhof - I.e. Once you started to notice girls' heights, you become more aware of them and appear to encounter them more often.

    Already 4-5 girls over 6 feet in this thread... obviously, I'm right

    Could you please use the metric system? Come on, it's the 21st century, pull it together.
