Not tall enough? Being short shouldn't be that much of a detriment, being tall has its disadvantages as well.I'm 6'4" and my bus commute into work sometimes hurts my knees for days, same thing when I drive any regular size car. also, some people seem fearful of me because of my height, it gets kind of weird sometimes. I have a brother who's 6'7" and he has to duck through door ways to not hit his head. Also, a nephew who's 6'5" and only 15, he tells me he's often searched by the police and is often treated as an adult(he's just a big kid).


Doesn't your family have health problems?.Like being that tall isn't a good thing you know?


lol....not at all. My mom was very short, like 5'4" max, most of her kids are actually short to average height and my dads in the 6'2" range. Even 6'4"(my height) is on the higher side of normal tall, I also only weigh 170. My brother who's 6'7"(only have the same father) was always tall, when we were kids, he was like a foot taller than me and most of my other siblings. My nephew's father is a giant( 6'5"-6-6") range that kid is already taller than me (6'5") and probably out weighs me by at least 20 pounds. Its only really when you are really heavy and NBA tall (6'8"+) that you can have foot problems,joint problems etc..from all of that compression on your feet an joints.

Probably early 20's, I was actually very average in height until like the 11th grade when I had a huge growth spurt. Its different for everyone, you'd be better off asking your parents or family members(especially the ones you take after).

I know that it's different for everyone,i was just asking :).I see my classmates that are like 184+.I feel like im not average even though everyone says that 170+ is pretty normal.My brother is 185,while my father is 174 and my mother 164.Dunno how we got at this height despite how average our father is.
