You are probably still growing at 16 so you have that going for you. Here are some more tips: * Don't do any really heavy weight training exercises until you've stopped growing as the growth plates at the ends of your bones may be adversely affected therefore affecting your growth. Also, there are spinal compression factors with some exercises. * Improve your posture. Good posture can add inches to someone's height if they start with poor posture. Alexander technique or yoga can help here. * Stretching and hanging exercises will be most effective in lengthening the spine. A healthy, supple spine with healthy discs and good posture is the key.

No, you will not actually grow taller but you will appear taller because you are slimmer.

You're a bit strange would be the simplest way of putting it. But there are no laws about dating. There are laws about sexual contact. And this could be illegal in a number of states and countries.
