Thanks man. When you put it like that I realise I'm quite lucky. Defo staying away from the misc though
If it makes you feel better, you can just lie to girls and say you're 6'2" or something and they'll believe you. You're definitely lucky. 6'0"-6'4" is perfection, I would say.

Although there is this which suggests that 5'9"-5'11" is optimal for being attractive to women, and that men both taller and shorter than this are seen as being less attractive.

It would be nice if it was. I still get sternum pains when doing dips :/
dips screw me over too. don't bother with them, you can really mess yourself up. Lying triceps extensions (rippetoe style) and pushdowns or closegrip bench are all you need.

I'm 5'7" and I haven't grown at all since turning 19 and I don't expect to do any more.

There's nothing wrong with 5'5" on women. Some believe, like me, it's an ideal height for a woman. In any case no, the chances are you won't grow any more - girls stop growing at around 17, but guys don't stop until around 21.
Holy s***, that gives me a year to get off my 5'2" pedestal!

Did any guys here grow much after 19? I would love a few more inches, but at 19 I'm not sure anymore. I guess I'm looking for some hope...

Feel like a manlet even though I'm 6'.
Honestly OP, 6ft is a really good height in my opinion!

I stopped growing by the age of 13/14 at 6'5", yes I know that's freakishly tall for someone that age. Now I'm nearly 18, I am still the same height.

And if not, a lot of guys like smaller girls too. Tall guys included. I am 6'4" and have, er, been involved with girls between 4'10" and 6'1". I think being short for a guy is much worse than being short for a girl (not that you're particularly short, only a couple of inches and not even one standard deviation below the average height of 5'4").

Oh right, a bit unexpected lol but I guess it makes some sense. Things could be a bit awkward if the male was significantly taller than the female.

Yeah I know, stopped them a few months ago due to the strain. Will google the rippetoe extensions but I already do pushdowns

If by awkward you mean "insanely awesome" and "oh my god I am the same size of her forearm" then yes, pretty awkward. Although honestly, I've had nothing but positive things said about my height. In all fairness I suspect there's some sort of bias there since girls who thought negatively of my height are unlikely to say anything about it.

They're the best triceps exercise, in my opinion, because they use all three heads of the triceps. (on a side note, I had how even singular triceps is still triceps. I know it's right, but it just looks and feels wrong.)

Yeah, like the OP, I think I'm just paranoid.

I think it's because I've been 'the short one' in my group of friends, all my life, and although I'm catching up now (lots of my friends are between 5'3" and 5'6"), it's pretty much ingrained into my head that I'm short!

Probably. 5'2" really isn't too short. Pretty much any girl less than 5'8" seems "short" to me, so it's all the same really, unless you're exceptionally tiny.

I'm underweight (not majorly, I'm working on it) and look a bit young for my age so I don't think it helps my cause...:erm:

Ah, possibly not. Also, posture helps a lot too. If you don't stand tall and straight then you'll look a lot smaller than you really are. If you're slightly built then again, you'll appear smaller. But if you're working on this stuff then there's nothing to worry about.

Anything over 6'4" is just awkward. Seriously, I think 6'4" is bordering on being too much, with 6'2" being the ideal. Unless you're one of the rare people who are perfectly proportioned at large heights (broad shoulders, etc.).

I know this thread is mainly for guys, but i've just turned 19. I'm currently 5ft 5 and female, will I grow anymore?

I'm not keen on staying at 5ft 5.
I grew about half an inch between 22-23. So possibly you might grow a tiny bit more but I doubt anything significant.

When i was 17 i was still 165cm, 3 years later in 175-77cm. If you parent a tall or decent height don't worry.
Well my mum is 4ft 10 (not good)
And my dad is 5ft 9

So maybe 5,8 will happen but I don't know.

I've gained about 1 maybe 1.5cm. Nothing much

I'm probably ONLY JUST 6'0", too short for 6'1" though I think.

6' is a great size, you're taller than most women, so you're beyond that awkward barrier, and you're not too tall that you look like slenderman creeping about. I'm 6'6, and it's a pain. Sometimes literally. Single beds are a nightmare, and doorframes can do one.
