Take your inperfections and make them to your advantage.Don't give a f*** about what others think or say.Importantly you have to be happy in life, there are better things to see & do in this world than worry abt your height .

be confident.. dude..

some girls like tall guys that they feel secure and dependable.
but it's just a small factor of love and being loved.
and you should try outdoor sports, like swimming and more active works, with better nutrition.
you will achieve certain limit, but 6 feet is really tall.... for asians.. i guess..
there are many people becomed success despite their height.
dont be so depressed..

You stop growing after age 21.
You shouldn't think about suicide, especially over your height. Learn to accept and love yourself the way you are, once you do, you'll gain the respect of others. Be comfortable in your own skin, if you're not, people perceive it and you become an easy target for jokes. As for girls... not all girls like tall guys, especially short girls. And when you meet the right girl, she'll love and accept you just the way you are.... Take actor Tom Cruise... short guy married Nicole Kidman and is now involved with Katie Holmes, another taller woman than him.

There is one to help,but I wouldn't do it..But any way...Here's a way.There's a technique I heard of that they do in hospitals.They break your legs.Then they grow back attached.Then you'll get taller because the leg has to grow up and reach the other end.Keep trying this till you keep getting taller.Try it if you want.I think they said it hurts.But if it comes to deciding to do sucided.I'd rather have you try this.

There is seriously nothing you can do, I am 22 and 5'2 trust me you wont grow anymore...just accept it and tell all the tall people at least you dont fall down as much because your center of gravity is lower...seriously though short people are way less clumsy than tall ones so start making jokes about tall people and dont take jokes about height so seriously you are fine the way you are!!

There are so many women out there for you who are petite and under 5 feet tall. Most of my friends are petite women and I look like an amazon woman compared to them. But the nice thing about this is that for every short woman there is a short man, and for every tall woman there is a tall man, and sometimes tall women fall for short men too. You need to stop worrying about becoming taller and start working on your self-esteem, and realize that God made you PERFECT just the way you are. Please stop buying into this VERY LIMITED "hollywood" idea of what is beautiful and handsome....it's all BS. If you are feeling hopelessness and suicidal, then you should talk to your doctor about medications and/or therapy that can help you out of the dark place you are in.

I like small women...become stronger inside girl and shine!

I dont think you are all that short. My friend is 5ft, when we made of fun ( not seriously), he always laughed with us. People dont realy mean to put you down when they
call u 'dedfutiya' or somethin. Its jus friendly banter.
And besides, i never saw him gettin insecure abt his height, and he had his fair share of girls fallin for him, finally landed a sweet pretty wife too.
So it all depends on how you carry off wat you got.
Insecurity and low self-esteem shows and its not attractive at all. You can try the techniques given here
in case they work, but pleaseee stop obsessing over ur height. Its not a big deal.

Well now you are 25 i don't think anything will work now apart from exercise. Don't use any thing its not gonna work. Just do exercise only. And why are you feel so bad. It's ok. But if u really feel so bad then you can buy some hills from internet and fix inside your shoes. Well one of my friend do that.

I'm sorry. There is no way to increase height.

can't help..anymore..just accept it..

sgt. pepper
You are already 25... you need to get over it. You should already be accustomed to the jokes. Why not let them roll off your back? The jokes shouldn't matter to you anymore. There's nothing you can do to grow... just face the facts... you should know better.

There's a practice going on in China whereby they purposely break your legs and then add rods inbetween the broken bones... then the bones will set in... and result in the increased height.

It dosent matter you are short
there are so many great person who are short but they did very big things.
such as sunil gavskar,sachin tendulkar from our country.
So dont think so much about that just be happy be as it is.

I am sorry that you feel out of place because of your height. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with you. Your height is your height. It isn't something you got to choose; it is something you were born with. If other people make fun of you for it, you need to recognize that it is THEIR problem and not yours. I know it is hard to realize that when most of your society disagrees, but I hope this helps even if you don't agree with me.

The only option to get talker is surgery.

I know how you feel... I'm 5'1 and I wish I was taller, but I'm me and I can't change me...

Say to your friends, you know why no one picks fights with small people? Because we're very aggressive. Well it works for me ;) (But then again everyone who know's me knows I can be very aggressive :P)

Cunning Linguist
There's no way to increase your actual height.

If you want to be a foot taller, buy 12" platforms. Other than that, you get what you get.

there are more important things to worry about than your height
accept it and move on

come on, think of short people who are celebrities and top in their career, our own jaya bhaduri in guddi, have you forgotten. your self confidence in your own self will take you to heights. never let yourself down with such rotten feeling, think what tall people do or achieve, as height has got nothing to do with your destiny. rather you develop your overall personality and you will become the darling of everyone. ok coming to your height problem, you can do skipping and join swimming, surely you will grow tall. be a positive person, and make others happy by your glowing behaviour. be always cheerful, think of people who are only 4 feet and what kind of achievements they have done in their life.

I am 26 and I am 4'11. You have to take what you were born w/ and accept it happily. Just wear platforms!

Here is the prescription for gaining height it has worked on all youngsters who were under 18 years I don't know if it would help you but you can try and I am sure it wont harm you perhaps it might work at your age.
Best of Luck and God Bless you !

The following Prescription of Homeopathic Remedies will help any youngster in gaining height: -
Three drops each in a sip of water just once a week.

Follow it up with these Tissue Salts: -
Four tablets each all together 3 times a day half hour before meals on an empty stomach. After finishing the whole bottles of these salts (30 Days).
If you feel that they are not making a positive difference just raise the potency of these three salts and get them in 30 instead of 6X and keep taking them till they start showing positive results.
