Hi, I'm a 16 year old male and was wondering if 5'7.5 ( 171.5 cm) is short?
I'd particuarly appreciate answers from a female perspective. I've had no trouble getting girlfriends etc it's just all my friends are taller than me :confused:

Regards

I would say you were tall actually, I guess you just have a lot of friends who all just happen to be tall as well.

you've probably got another few inches to grow.. my brother grew quite a lot from when he was between 16-18. but anyways, no it's not that short. On the shorter side but nothing to get worked up about.

Not a bad height for 16, probably still a bit to grow yet. With regards to height and getting girls, don't believe the rumours

I would say slightly below average as I am about 5'10 which is average for our age.

What is with all the height threads? Seriously?

You can't stretch yourself like in the cartoons, you will have to live with your height.

Regardless of what people reply with, be it "nah, that's really tall" or "yeah, sorry, you're on the small side" changes nothing. What are you trying to gain from these responses?

you'll probably grow another inch - it is below average, but I wouldn't say it's short.

For a man? Yes it's on the short side. At 16 you do probably have a couple of inches still to grow, though.

You'll never be tall, though... very unlikely you'll hit 6', unless you're a particularly late bloomer. I did recently randomly see a guy I went to school with getting off a train... he was properly titchy at school (probably only about 5'6 when we left, aged 17/18) and it looks like he's spontaneously shot up to over 6' tall . To be fair though, he wasn't just short at school, he looked properly "little", like a 13 or 14 year old. I reckon he just hit puberty late. Maybe you're the same? Do you have any pubes yet?

well seeing as average male height is 5 ft 9 and you are below this, you are short.

however on a dating prospective, average female height is 5 ft 5 so theres lots of girls shorter than you if thats what you want. not me though i'm way taller than you :P

It seems that nearly all my replies are about height question...

You are tall enough, so young as you are,will be taller in 1 or 2 years.

It's short to me, but I'm 5'11 and not after 16 year olds anyway so not really your target audience.

I think it's short, but I'm a 5'9 female.

I doubt you've finished growing yet... I know a few guys who had growth spurts at 15-16.
