I never knew how big a 2 inch height difference was until I grew
#1
Anyone else like me? I was 5’4.5 at 14-15, and people would always bring up my height and in casual conversations acted like I was a midget, and to be honest I did feel like one compared to the upperclassmen.

Anyway, once I grew to 5’7 going into junior year, I recieved almost no height comments, and I also didn’t seem to get anywhere near the disrespect I received when I was as tall as the average woman.

I really just don’t feel short anymore. I also learned that it’s ridiculous for people to put 5’4-5’5 and 5’7 men in the same height range, because of how much taller 5’7 is than the average woman and how normal that height feels compared to being 5’4-5’5. It’s insane how life changing a 2 inch height increase can be, especially when you’re near the average female height.

It certainly is. I knew plenty of men over 5'7" and they look pretty normal.

Yeah it does, and it's even better when you go from 5'7" to 5'9"

I remenber feeling a big difference when I went from 5'10 to 6'0. Thats why people inflate their height by an inch thinking its not much but it really is. Also were you really being called a midget at 5'4.5 because thats average for a woman. Do you live outside of the US.

Actually it was proven here that the biggest difference is between 5'8" and 5'10"

Yeah but 5'4 to 5'6 is very significant too because the latter is 2 inches taller than the female average. I remember feeling much better when I became taller than most women, for obvious reasons
