Hi, is 5'11 short for a 16 year old boy? A few girls and guys have called me short.. I really start to feel insecure about my height :( ?

Updates:
I'm by the way turkish, but i live in the netherlands, everyone here is like 6'2 even the girls are 6'0 xD a friend of mine is 6'9.. this might explain it, doesn't it?

  • If you're dutch, then yes it's short but you're just 16 so you might still grow - if you're anywhere else in the world you're pretty much average or even taller than average so stap complainin :P

  • No, 5'11 is not too short. I mean unless those girls are 6ft and up I don't see how it could be considered short. My boyfriend is 5'11 and I'm 5'5 so that's tall to me.

  • Not at all!!! Most girls just want the guy to be taller than them and I'm 5'6 and people call me tall for a girl because most girls are shorter than me. You're height is perfect!

  • That's average for guys. Maybe even slightly avove average. They're just messing with you. Don't take these things seriously. If you still feel negative then relax because you are only 16. You are likely to grow some more.

  • I think you just happen to be in area with highest height average ( northern mainland Europe ) of 6'1" for a male - Don't worry 5'11" close to that.

  • Yeah, the Netherlands is famous for having tall people so it's below-average in that specific part of the world, but 5' 11" would be considered above-average in all non-freak parts of Europe.

    The height probably isn't the issue anyway, it's more than likely your Turkishness.
