A male United States age 22-25, anonymous writes:

I am 15 and 5'9.5".I have only grown 1/2" since last August. My girlfriend and I began dating when we were 13 and I was the same height I am now. She used to be around 5'6" when we started dating. She started growing and is now 6'2". She always talks about how she loves being taller than me. Will I grow anymore? My 19 year old brother is 6'1" and my dad is 6'0". I'm not letting height get in the way of our relationship, but I think we look odd so I really want to grow. Both my dad and my brother were full grown by this age. Will I grow more and catch-up to my girlfriend?

When we were in middle school and high school the same thing happened to my girl and I, but to a bigger extreme due to our family genes. She grew way past me to be a staggering 6'5-1/2". I am only 5'1"! I did not grow at all while she just kept reaching for the skies. She wore high heels the whole time. So she would at times be 6'8"! We both knew early on that she would be always taller than me by a lot. Her legs are longer than a mile. We are in college now and it is completely cool that she towers over me. We catch some flack from people but we just ignore it. She has decided to not only be the taller one, but now she works out every day and is completely and overwhelmingly stronger than me. She loves completely dominating me and having that role in our relationship. Accept it and enjoy the view from down below!

TasteofIndia agony auntHey there,

Well, there's definitely a good chance that you'll catch up to her... you're certainly not done growing. However, 6'2 is pretty tall!! You may not quite catch all the way up to her... but you both seem happy to be with each other. I don't think anyone will notice or care who's taller than who.

You seem like a great boyfriend and don't worry... you might catch up with her yet. Congratulations on a great relationship with a great gal!

xx India

lexilou agony auntYou probably have some more growth yet - i think guys can grow up to the age of 21 so dont worry just yet. My ex hubbie was 6ft 1 by 13 yet our son at 14 is 5ft 6 but he is growing steadily every couple of months and I think he will be a lot taller yet. But im only little, 5ft 3 and 3/4's so my genes may play a part and keep him under 6ft. How tall is your mum?? Dont worry about looking odd together - you might not catch her up but you will probably get a lot nearer x

I'm so glad she loves her height. I was the tallest girl in school and hated it.

You may grow and you may not, there is no way to tell but as you are only 15 there is a good chance you still have a couple of inches left in you.

Don't worry about it, no one is going to think "haha she's taller than him." They are going to think "my God she's got legs up to her face!! He's the luckiest man in the world."

Good Luck!! xx
