    How tall are you now? You could always just put on high heel shoes to gain a few extra inches. Growth hormones are also out there and can increase height but you are taking a chance with using them.

    Why can't you enjoy who you are as you are? :shrug:

    Some good looking male operators would be nice.

    5'7, and I hate high heel shoes.

    If you tell me to be happy because that's over average for a female, I'll vomit over you

    No, I wouldn't do that. I think you should be whatever you want to be. The growth hormones would be worth looking into if you really want to gain more altitude.

    I doubt my doctor is gonna prescribe human growth hormone to a modestly tall 20 year old for vanity reasons.

    You can get the stuff over the internet, but I'd be wary of shooting that up. If you overdose you can really fuck yourself up. Deformed facial bones, insulin resistance and worse.

    Work on your posture. Minimizing the curvature in your spine will make you slightly taller. Otherwise, at twenty you are a "fully grown adult" and I doubt that more than a tiny fraction of the population continue increasing in height at this age. You might manage a couple of millimeters.

    I'm sorry you're not happy with your body the way it is, and I hope you manage to make peace with it. Life can be very hard for people who are dissatisfied with their appearance, and it would be very sad if you go through life that way. Especially if other people think you're just fine, or even good-looking, and it's only your own opinion.

    Do you swim? If you haven't reached the end of your growth spurt yet swimming is one way to increase your height.

    Thanks

    I've no desire to be 'just fine' or 'good looking' by other people's standards, though. Most people's standards for a girl or woman focus on a) not taking up space and b) looking as sexually attractive as possible. Almost like apologizing. Screw that. I've no desire to be extremely delicate looking and have oversized boobs. Vomit.

    I do keep my posture very upright, hurts my spinal erectors after a while though, lol.

    I've grown 1cm this year, can I safely assume I'm one of the small fraction?

    I swim but not regularly. I could go swimming more often but I'd hate to keep asking my mom to take me, she has enough to deal with.

    I remember an article on Hong Kong / Thai / Singapore children who do special exercises to get as tall as possible.
    I couldn't find that article, but I googled "how to get taller" and got many hits.
