I dont see what the problem is as you are taller than me even though i am a woman.Why is it that guys find their height such a hangup.If you are short there isnt a problem try to find a short woman it is no big deal is it.Some countries have shorter heights than you so move there if you want to seem taller than the rest.It is all to do with genetics short parents short kids.Take me my mum is 5'7 and my dad is 5'5.I take after my dad with my height has i only reached 5'4 i have a older brother who is nearly 6'0.I just put it down to my parents height as i am similar to dad.Also usually boys are taller than girls so another factor.Then there is my 16 year old sister and she is already 5'9 thus making her taller than me so there.At least you dont have to suffer the embarrassment of having to keep looking up to your sister just to speak to her.

iv been fretting over my height for about a month now..it suddenly dawned on me that I'm 20 and have not grown a cm for 5 years. im 5'10 and male...which isn't short..perfectly average in fact.. i cant help but feel slightly undermined around very tall men. im sure its just a phase...

but what i don't get is women that worry about their height...men really don't care. voluptuous, tall n slender, petite...all shapes n sizes can be sexy in their own way. if only women weren't so pretentious about such facile things as height and would give the 'short angry man' a chance.

my girlfriend is 5'8 and packs quite a lot of 'junk in her trunk' so to speak...i'm 2 inches taller and a skinny white boy. we look great together. anyway i dont even know what my point is (lol). but at the end of the day...its all in your mind..aspiring to fit into the 'norm' is only going to drive you mad. its true being taller is a BENEFIT...and thats all it is.

to answer your question: go to wikipedia..they will show you average heights for different countries...you'll find most average between 5'8-6'0 for males...so if we round that off to 5'10. measure out your fingers to 2 inches. and you can see what your worrying about and how ridiculous it is.

I am larger than all of you and everyday I look in the the mirror and think please somebody shoot that whale (15st), but when my friends and family look at me they see me for who I am,not what I weigh. I would kill to be the same weight as some of you lot, but then it wouldn't be me and I might not be happy. So be happy for what you have got and be happy for what you haven't, in other words imagine being a stone heavier. You should not care about being 'normal' because there is no such thing and the people that care about you most won't care what you look like - ever, those that do aren't worth your time.

Hi there,

I am 13 years old, i am 6"0 and weigh 163 pounds.

You are 16 years old, 5"8 and weigh 136 pounds.

ok...

b.m.i will calculate whether you are under-average-overweight, i have calculated your b.m.i and yours is 20.7, mine is 21.3 so they are both quite similiar.

BMI calculator value between 25 and 30 means you are obese

If your BMI is between 17 to 22, your life span might be longer than average.If your BMI is between 23 and 25, most people wouldn't consider you to be overweight. If your BMI is 26 or more, you are considered overweight and are statistically likely to have a lower life expectancy.

So do not worry you are about the same as the average person for someone who is your height, weight and age.

If you want to ask me anything else dont be afraid to contact me on [email address blocked] regards.

Yeah that sounds about right. I am a girl, and I am almost 16, I am 5'8, almost 5'9. And I weigh 134 lbs. You might consider gaining a pound or two, but it all depends on how you want to look. If you look thin right now, you may want to gain a few, but if you look normal, then stick with your weight, eat right and exercise. :)

I noticed that quite a few people asked whether they will stop growing or start, or what age this should happen at. My dad stopped growing when he was 15, he was 6ft5, but many of my male friends don't even pass my shoulders at 5ft1 (I am 5ft10). My other male friends were 5ft1 for most of their teen years, but at age 17 or so grew taller than me. It all just depends on your background (genetics, ethnicity - if I took on my mom's side I would be around 5ft5 because she's Asian)

You are very "normal". It is a very healthy weight for a sixteen year old of your height. You will probably grow more in height before you are twenty, and you will put on more weight. Just eat right and stay healthy. Nature will take its course.

There really shouldn't be a "normal weight", I'm about 10st, which is about 140lb, I'm around 5'9, but as muscle weighs more than fat and I go to the gym for muscle building, there's no way I'd be an "average" or "normal" weight.

Everybody's different, and everyone has more or less muscle than the next person.

On the basis I have more, then I'd be above average.

So I wouldn't worry about this.

I am 14, 2 months and exactly same height & weight.

In Australia, I am way over average, but then am two years younger than you.

It all depends where you are and where your routes lie. eg. Asians tend to be shorter, while the Central Africans are often very tall.

If I were to hazzard a guess, I would say that you were pretty much average,though maybe on the shorter side.

But then it isn't your size that matters, it is your personality and and your communication with other people around you, what ever your environment.

To get a proper answer to your question it would be best to ask a doctor. They will have answers to such questions.

birdynumnums agony auntHi There!

Ask your doctor about your concerns - he'll let you know how you are doing - but you a certainly in the normal range. I remember my kids putting on weight (sometimes around their stomachs) and then the next month shooting up an inch or two - so take the fact that you are not fully grown into account. One of the measurements that trainers take is your wrist bone measurement - which tells them how large your bone structure is. I'm a 5'7" female but I have big hands, shoulders and feet - when I weighed 120 pounds, I looked like I was anorexic. I was told that my ideal weight for my frame was 165, but I'm sure that 165 would be chubby looking on a woman of 5'7" who had a tiny bone structure with narrower shoulders and hips. When I was 14, I grew 6 inches and gained 40 pounds in one year! Half way through that growth spurt - the doctor put me on a diet to gain a bit of weight, because I was growing so fast. So check with your Mom and see how the Doctor thinks you are doing if you are still concerned, but you sound pretty normal to me. Take Care - X

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a 5'8'' 16-year-old female. I am a 5'5'' 20 year-old, and have been this size for 5 years. When I first reached my height, I seemed awkward and tall to other people, but later on, many of these people outgrew me, and I didn't feel so tall. The world is made up of people of all different heights, so I wouldn't worry about it.

TasteofIndia agony auntLucky girl, your size is perfect. You're just a little trimmer than more 5'8'', 16 year olds, but I'll bet your figure is still BANGIN'.

So you can go pig out on some pizza and Cheetos and not have to worry about another couple pounds. You're a lucky duck. Love yourself!!

stina agony auntHi Anon,

That sounds normal to me, but some websites I looked at jsut now said you are a bit on the skinny side. But everyone is different. I think if you really want to know, you should ask your doctor. Since he knows your medical history, he would let you know if this is a good weight for your height better than anyone here.

Take care.
