You know actually I would like to be a bit taller because people always say that I am short and that they can't believe it that I am almost going to be 18 and I am not so tall. I am only 5'2, today my friend asked me if I was getting shorter. I hope I'm not though. I always feel short compared to tall people still though I don't want to be to tall because then I will feel out of place. So would you like to be taller or shorter?

I want to be taller a little. Sometime my family member they said i am not so tall. I mean a little short. On that time i feel to be tall a little. But when i go outside then all people said i am perfect. Moreover i also believe that i am perfect with my height. But i want to be tall a little. I don't know how i will.

Hmm maybe I always heard that you can get taller by sleeping more, but I don't know if that's true or not.

getting taller by sleeping more?? is it?? I don't think so. Otherwise i think that do more exercises before ur bone has been tough. I mean do it in ur growth age. In addition, eat more nutrients!

I'm 21 and I'm only 5"1. I'm slightly shorter than you are. There are times, when it does bother me a little, when I wish I was a little taller. But most of the time, I'm just okay with it. I've accepted the fact that I'm not going to be any taller than I am now, unless I wear heels, which really does not happen very often in my case. It's just the way that life goes sometimes.

I hope that one day I will be able to accept how you have. I know right high heels I hardly wear either because it's hard for me to walk in them.

I don't wear high heels for the same reason as you. I have a difficult time walking in them, and they are somewhat uncomfortable, probably because I don't wear them often or anything like that.

If I have my way, I want to be at least 3 inches taller. I'm only 5 ft. flat, my husband stands at 5'10, while my sons 5'8 and 5'9, my daughters aged 20 and 22 stands 5'5 and 5'3. You see, I'm the smallest in the family, people who see us always tell me that I'm the youngest in the family. LOL! Anyway, height doesn't matter.

I know right being taller would be better.You are probably skinny because you have a high metabolism. I also have a high metabolism and can't really gain weight.

I'm pretty tall, 6 ft tall, but I think I would like being a little shorter, because I have a pretty bad back problem. I think I read up somewhere that 90% of people have back problems and like 85% are tall people. Yeah, but if I can get this back problem fixed and be a little shorter, I'll definitely go for it. And if I can be tall and not have a back problem I rather be tall :P.

Well, I am 5'11, which is a pretty good deal considering my dad is 5'5 and mom is 5'4. I wish I was around 6'9, just love to go walking down the street being a freak and what not :D. Anyways Iam comfortable with my height, besides I'm around 210lbs (not fat ;) so being intimidated is the last thing in my book. In your case well, 5'2 isn't bad for a girl. This whole discussion about height, and how it's significance has been irrelevant in my life so far until I had a few of my friends tell me how tall they are and how they get all the ladies at the clubs and all the short ones miss out. I think a person bragging about their height is someone who is rather insecure about their achievements. So, in a nutshell, if you look healthy, work hard, and have a good education, height doesn't mean squat. It amazes me how people judge others on what they dont have any control over.

being tall has its advantages, and also disadvantages, anime. the same goes true in being short. what is important is, whatever height we have, we appreciate it and accept it without reservation. that way, we will be able to use fully this characteristic to the hilt. comparison is one of the greatest triggers of conflict. it's even the beginning of jealousy... don't get caught in the follies of comparison and later on have that nasty feeling of jealousy... depression or angers follows...

Nearly56 foot tall, for a female that was tall, but of late I have noticed people here are getting taller, haven't a clue why! I like being tall, never really thought about being short. So I say Tall is my preference.

I`m a medium guy . I can`t say that i`m tall or small, but i would love to have at least 5 cm more . Now, i have 1,73 m and i would love to have something like 1,8 m . But, if God gave us thouse dimmensions, we should valorificte thouse. every guy it`s unique and we all are here , on Earth for a purpose... Short people in general , are a little frustrated and they have all the right to fell like that .

I actually like my height...I'm about 5'11", so a little above average, which is nice. Also, compared to other Asians, I'm more than just a little above average, lol =P...So I think I would prefer the height that I currently am.

I am also in same situation. I am 5'5" and I think my height is not going to increase now. So I used to think that hope I would have been more taller then I am now. It is very important to have good personality to get good job and good girlfriend. But still rather than being frustrated about it I am sportingly considering myself unique and neglect the fact that I am not tall and consider that I am not the shortest.

I'm 5'4" so I know all about being short. In elementary, I was always the last in line because the teacher lined us up by height. Sometimes I wish I was taller, especially when my husband is gone & I have to use a chair to get on top of the fridge. Luckily, I don't usually put things there so I don't have to climb up there too often. My husband is 6' even, so its not a problem for him to look up there when he's home.

I am short so definitely wanted to be TALLER! I envy those tall women somehow and look small when I am in their mids... That is why I always wear high heels it adds up somehow to my height. And for me. tall ladies looks more sexy and they look more good... well that is only my opinion and how I see it.

I'm 5'3 and very happy with that. It may seem short to some, but I don't mind it at all. I feel like I'm perfectly average height, so why change that?

I am 24 and stands 5'4... I wish I was taller like 5'5 or 5'6 so I would look slimmer and I could wear nice pair of jeans... Plus, i won't be needing to buy stilleto or wedge shoes to look taller.. Sometimes, I feel envious with supermodels. They look fabulous.. Maybe because the height has something to do with it.. They carry the clothes very well! I wish I could do something to make it happen.. but there's none so I'd just be thankful for what I have right now..

I would really want to be a little taller. Just a little. I am just around 5'1 and though I am Asian, I still feel too short. To be honest my height used to be fine with me but recently. I just want to get a bit taller because other people have gotten really tall lol. I dont know..is it the food? lifestyle? lol. I have a hard time being with people taller than me like inside the train or on a bus.. I really hate it because they all seem to be towering over me and I feel like I am having a hard time breathing. Being short though has pros too like looking younger and not having too much back aches. :D

I wish I could be taller but i think it's very difficult to be that way. I need to do some exercises n eat lots nutrient but I'm too lazy to do those activities. I'm soooo tiny....hehe...short n thin. most people think that i'm 3 up to 6 years younger. However some people think that tiny is cute... hehehehe....
