There's a story behind this one.
This morning my smoke detector went off while making breakfast. I grabbed a towel and waved it around near the smoke detector to clear some smoke away. I must of swung waved to hard cause the towel cause the cover of the detector opened up by accident. I stopped what I was doing to close it back together, but I couldn't reach the smoke detector. I got on the stairs and still couldn't reach it. I had to grab a chair in order to close it back up and while I was doing that I thought, "Man, I wish I was taller."

Do you ever which you were a bit taller or even shorter? How much taller /shorter would you like to be? (

The title of this thread pretty sums up my answer. I'm 5'5" , which is considered pretty short for a man my age. When I was about 11, my doctor predicted I would grew up to be 5'7". I kind of wish that prediction was actually true. If I was taller I would be able to reach places I can't now and I'd be built differently. I'd be a lot skinnier. I don't to be a lot taller, just a few more inches. The average height for males 20-39 in America is 5'10". I wouldn't mind that.

So how about you guys?

I kind of wish I was taller at times because it kind of feels good to be tall for me.

Oddly enough, I rarely genuinely wish I was taller. I've been just shy of 5' for yeaaaars now. Since that's how it's been my whole life, I've adjusted to either climbing to get what I want, or asking someone else to get it for me.

Sure, even a few inches would be more convenient, but I rather like being short. I think it's cute. :3

No!!!!! I do not wish to be taller!!! Here is an artists depiction of what I would look like if I was taller!!
Spoiler:


Considering I'm 6'6 and the tallest in my immediate family, being taller is not on my wishlist for 2012 or, indeed, ever. I haven't grown since late 2010 though, so it's not likely I'll grow much taller within my lifetime, thank god. On the flipside, I'd hate to be short, so if I did have a choice in becoming shorter, I'd only cut a couple of inches off my height. Being tall, even exceedingly tall, is sooooooo much better than being short.

I want to be taller. I'm only 15, so that's definitely (hopefully) gonna happen. Right now I'm roughly 5'8" or so. The goal is to be 6' 10". I don't care if it's unrealistic, I'm going to make it happen! >:[ (just kidding, I'd rather reside at a comfortable 6'3"-6'5" or so, but we'll see :/)

I'm 5' 2" right now, but I have yet to hit my growth spurt, and apparently the later you hit it the taller you end up in the long run or so my doctor says. I'd like to end up 6'3", and that's what my doctor says I'll end up being. If that happens I will definitely be happy with my height.
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I hope you did your squats.

As for being taller, I'm pretty content at 6'0". I wouldn't be disappointed if I grew another couple inches but anything more than like 6'5" is just ridiculous.

I wish I was a little bit taller
I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good,
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat,
and a 6'4 impala.

I do wish I was taller, i'm on the short side so it makes it hard for me to reach things and I get tired of dragging a stool or chair around to reach things, it's really annoying.

I'm about 5'9" and I do wish I was taller because for some weird reason, girls like tall guys. Why does HEIGHT matter so much? It should be all about HEART...

Really, I'm happy with my height, there's just that one thing...

I'm 5'7 - 5'8 or so at the moment and honestly do want to be 5'6 sometimes, but it's not that big of a desire. I just feel odd sometimes being a bit taller than some of the other girls around me, but there's definitely a handful of them who are taller than me, as well!

All-in-all, I'm content with my height. :3

I'm 5ft 9, and I haven't grown since I was 14. I wanted to hit the 6ft mark, but that's never gonna happen.

I'm 5'6''-5'7'' and overall comfortable with my height. I don't wish to be taller nor do I wish to be shorter. I find both sides of the spectrum neat in different ways and I enjoy that.

I don't know, I like my height. But sometimes I want to be taller, just so I wouldn't be in front of the line at school all the time.

I'm 5'8" currently. Would LOVE to be around 6' or a bit taller, because height gives a huge advantage at concerts. :[ Also I would look thinner I guess.

Haven't grown at all in like 20 years.

I'm mostly content with my height, but I stopped growing at 5' 11-1/2". The extra half inch would be nice, but I've literally been the same height since age 15. I was always one of the tallest kids growing up (and have some of my old class pictures to prove it), but one day I just stopped growing, and eventually everyone else caught up to and then started passing me.

I had hoped I would have one more growth spurt earlier this year (my Dad had one when he was 20- he went from 5' 11" to 6' 2"), but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

My height is currently five feet. I am pretty much content with my height. It would be nice if I was taller, so I could save more energy during track and field. With longer legs, I would cover more ground with less steps to save more energy and have a higher endurance.
