    I have a friend who was 6' 4" when he was 14 and he is 16 now and 6' 5". I have another friend who is 15 (going on 16) who is 6' 4". I hknow anther boy who is also 16 and 6' 4". There is another boy in my grade who is 16 and 6' 2". My friend's ex-boyfriend was 7' tall by the time he graduated high school. But hey, maybe there is just something in the water............

    being tall is awesome. so many guys are getting short. im 5'6" and almost every guy ik is like shorter than me, except for a select few.

    You needed a NO answer. When I was a teenager and older, I was always attracted to the taller guys! I was tall, so if I wanted to wear 3 inch heels, the guy had to be at least 6 ft. or taller. Tall guys get the better jobs. In almost every Presidential election, the taller person has won. Tall guys really do have an advantage over the shorter guys. If you are tall and you have big feet - well everyone knows what that means!
  • abs44 N.D. Nile 2010/03/18 02:00:41
    good drivers? lol. And I agree with prefering taller men. At the moment I have two friends trying to bribe me into going to prom with a certain guy. My biggest problem with it? He is 5" shorter than me. Blah. I want to wear heels.....

    great idea! for the last dance we went to I made him wear a hat but that only hepled by about an inch or two.

    I stopped really growing when I was 16, and I'm less than 6 feet tall. Genetics and environment treat everybody differently.

    Yeah, one of my former friends (who I hate now) has been that tall since 16.

    Hell, you're still growing, you'll definitely get taller. Don't sweat it though, 6ft 2 is tall, but normal. Besides, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being tall. If you were only say 5ft 2, I would worry..only if you are a guy of course.
  • lee 2010/03/09 23:43:51

    I'm 6"2' at 14.

    Then again, I'm also taller than my father.
  • mavericky 2010/03/09 22:19:06

    That's about when I hit my current height (of 6'2"), so as far as I can tell, it's pretty normal.

    Yes, it is tall...but it happens. On the plus side, his "tallness" opens up new and interesting career choices. For instance, he could hire on as a window washer for the new Airbus A330 commercial airliner, help maintain the Statue of Liberty without the additional costs of scaffolding or even re-align orbiting satellites.

    My son will be 16 years old in May, he is 6' 1/2" at this time. My husband is 6'3", so I don't think it is too tall. I know people who are taller, so I see nothing wrong with it. My son-in-law's brother was 6'4" at 14 years old, he plays basketball and from what I hear, pretty good at it.
  • left-libertarian 2010/03/09 21:33:07
    I know people who are 5-10 years older than you that are 4 inches shorter, so don't worry about it.
  • Charlie 2010/03/09 21:27:05

    I knew a guy when we were 14 that was 6'2".I was only 5'8" then.I'm 6'1" today.I'm sure the guy I knew grew more too.

    it's not an average height for a 16 yr old but it's not unusual either.
  • twocrows 2010/03/09 19:53:21

    My firstborn was 6'2 at 16, but hasn't grown anymore.
    However . . . .
    My secondborn was 6' 5" at age 14 !!! And he continued to grow to 6' 6" !!

    Don't worry about it. You are just fine !

    You're fine. And you'll probably grow a bit more before you stop. Keep in mind that there are a number of people taller than you, even at 6'2".
  • kevracer 2010/03/09 19:05:21

    he'll probably top at 6'5" or 6'6"
