I am an almost 20 year old male. I am 5'10" so just a bit over dead average height for the US and UK. According to growth predictors I should be 5'11" and it seems like that extra inch makes all the difference to me. I've played sport all my life so exercise was never the issue. Why does my height bother me so much? I've been short all my life and now am at least average. Any ideas?
Why does my height bother me so much?

Sounds like something else is really bothering you, but you think it's your height. Like maybe you don't feel quite as confident as you would like, and you think it must be your height, but it's really just the way you feel?0
Idk you obsess over stats like a lot of people...btw I think you still have time to grow0
umm how should I know? Were you teased in the past?0

Shut the hell up, I'm 21 and I'm 5'6". What do you think is going through my head? Nothing. I ride a quad bike and noticed the shorter I am the higher I go when doing a jump. I do rowing and was in a masters cause I was hypermobile and the only way I kept up with the older guys was cause I was more flexible then them. For 3 and a half painful years I was the fourth most athletic male in my year at high school and it was all cause I didn't care. Keep your chin up and show the taller ones they haven't got sh*t on you.0
At least you are on the better end of average.
I'm on the shorter end of it, and it's very hard to get noticed by women (it's kind of a fact that only a minority of women will date guys the same height as them or shorter).
Height cannot be changed, so I suggest you look at improving yourself in ways you can change if you want to feel better.0
you think you have it bad? I'm 5'5 and you can imagine the trouble I have with women because of it. Be happy of your height, because it could be worse...1
Yeah, I think you qualify for this.
