hey mate, a girl should go for personality, if i got to know u (n i was str8) i wud go for personality more than height. 5 foot 6 ent short! well not as short as 5'3" like me! my mate who is now nearly 17 is just 5 foot now, but he's really wkd to be around. like i sed before... it doesnt matter about the outside, its about the inside (however corny that sounds). chill out mate! stay young! ur only 15 go out and have a good time wiv ur mates, ull meet the right girl gud luck

hi. Well I'm a year older than you and I'm female. I'm shorter than you and weigh less than you and I only know a couple girls my age that are taller than me. I'm not meaning to say I'm tall, I'm just saying I don't think many girls are 6 foot or something.

Alot of people in highschool are shallow so they go for looks but quite honestly most people aren't too fussed about the height issue.

the reason you are soo short is because when you start lifting weights when you are really young it stunts your growth plates, but oh wel no turing back.. your not that short anyway, you'll shoot up.....hopefully. jk

You're not short, I'm not saying you're tall but I'm sure it wont interfer with relationships. A lot of my girl friends are 5 '6' and wouldn't mind going out with someone who is the same height as them. I on the other hand am only 5 '3' and a guy of 5 '6' would seem like a giant to me lol. But, if you are confident, you'll definitely appear taller, so work on not worrying about ur height, k hunny? lol, good luck, and I'm sure you'll have another growth spurt.

looks dont matter really. I'm 18, 6'2, 210 lbs with 7%A body fat and I never really got any util i started dating the girl im with now. I dont like to be conceited but im a attractive guy and i never really got girls, personality and "game" matters more than looks. Trust me, I even have a good friend wh;s 5'5 andhas a hot *** girlfriend, so it dent really atter. Hope I helped, sorry if i babbled, but im drunk right now so what ever.

Looks matter to some degree but for what you sound like, I don't think you're "standoffish". Personality does make or break you after you wheel the girl in. Just be charming and you will be golden.

You still have some growing to do so don't worry. Even if you don't many girls are shorter than 5'6" so you'll get them. If you want taller girls, play up your cuteness and let their maternal instincts take over. Fun to be had by all there. Ummm your bf% is pretty damn good. Don't get too much muscle or you'll look apeish. You may want to gain a little bit of fat to get you to 127ish. You have probably not stopped growing, so just chill ace.

you can actually change your height, youd have to get surgery and plates that are 2 inches or so put into your legs but that costs a bit load of cash

The average American girl (I don't know where you're from) is 5 ft 6 in, so basically about half the girls out there are shorter than you. I have to admit, being taller than a guy is a bit of a turn off for me, but again, 1/2 the girls out there are shorter than you and I'm sure a lot that are taller don't share my opinion. However, the average weight for American girls is 145 lbs., so I'm not entirely sure that, other on these message boards, you'll be wanting to flaunt how much you weigh. That's a rather awkward feeling, for a girl to weigh more than a guy she's dating. Don't worry though. If you're muscular, most girls will simply assume you weigh more than they do. Good luck! (and don't even THINK about surgery. That was invented for midgets and dwarfs and you are no where NEAR as short as many of the boys in my school who maxed out at 5'2, etc.)
