You must be pretty slim 5'11"/152lbs. Either that or I am too big (5'9"/163lbs)

Anyway, I was thinking the same thing re:height difference between you and your better half. Barefoot I would like the height difference to be 3-5".

Yes, I'm slim, but I am putting on weight (12lbs in the past month). My target weigth is 155-160 8%bf.

Most spouses are only a few inches apart in height. (That's according to researchers.)

An interesting quote from a new New York Times article called "Live Long? Die Young? Answer Isn't Just in Genes."
"How tall your parents are compared to the average height explains 80 to 90 percent of how tall you are compared to the average person."

I'm 5'8'' (173cm) only.

I'd love to reach the magic 5'11''.

I'm 5'11-6' and ~152 lbs as well.

I used to weigh ~120 for the longest time.

wow, i got you all beat!

I'm 6'9" approx. 225lbs... but I'm lucky - I'm slim but not lanky, big but not menacing...

I stopped growing at around 22 but when i was around 17 I grew like 4" in one summer

Even though its hard to find clothes, cars, airplane seats, etc, the girls LOVE it.. I always get stopped by women to talk about my height making it the perfect ice-breaker!

But the "do you play basketball" comments get a bit played out... oh well.

I'm 6'2, 170lbs (skinny). My girlfriend of three years is 5'2, 110lbs. Dancing is a little awkward at times.

You must also like the "how big are your feet??" questions. My brother get's pretty sick of the "how are you so tall?" questions that he'll occationally respond "why is your ass so fat?" when appropriate. He's usually a nice guy, but after about 200 times a day of the same question, it must wear on your nerves...

My dad's 6' and mom 5'8, it's weird how I'm only 5'10 at 19 years old. But my dad grew an inch or two at age 22, so I've got my fingers crossed for a spurt.

For the guys who grew after 18, did you do anything special? In terms of diet, exercises, and sleep? And how much did you grow? Was it constant, or a spurt?

I appreciate any advice that might help me get an inch or two, so I don't have to keep hemming pants and jeans. Thanks!

Why is it so weird that you're 5'10? That's the combined average of your parents' height so it doesn't seem that odd to me. Just to give you hope though, I have a Russian cousin who grew 6 inches after turning 18. I'm 5'10 and 153 lbs. I got sick last winter and was down to 145 - I was a freakin' skinny bastard untill about 1 month ago
