    Why are people, like you, so focused on height. I never thought about a man's height when I would admire a man from afar. Even if you end up being 5'6" to 5'8"... who cares! If you take care of yourself and look good, it wont matter. I really mean that!!  MOST WOMEN COULD CARE LESS IF YOU'RE 1 TO 3 INCHES SMALLER. Start living your life with confidence

    I mean, no. You’re not exactly short for your age, while I’m around 5’8 at your age, you like very common height. 

    But, 5’8 for an adult is not exactly bad, but it’s sort of below average for most places in the USA. while I’m unaware of your ethnicity, if you’re Asian- that’s not really bad height. but if you’re white, that’s not the worst either

    You’re not below average by a significant amount, you’re not average either. somewhere in between, but hey! Could be shorter. So, just take appreciation in everything being cheaper and living longer than tall men. A scientifically proven fact, you can enjoy that at least.

    That's pretty small.  I'm sure you're receiving frequent brutal assbeatings from the stronger guys.

    Boys keep growing. My nephew was the shortest male in his high school graduation photo. Then he joined the Navy, and when he came back, he was 6'2"

    Did your parents measure you when you were growing up? A good estimate is to double your height at age 2.

    I was 5 foot 8 in grade 9.  And by the end of the year i was 5 foot 10.  And now at 6 feet tall i am the tallest person in my family.  So to me you have a very normal height for someone just breaching puberty
