A 2012 survey of college students found that 89% of women were only interested in partners taller than them (while 47% of men were open to dating a woman who was taller them). The man is the shorter partner in only 4% of heterosexual pairings. Here are a few points about short guys like me for ‘ladies’ to consider….
1. They’re More Committed
New research from New York University found that short men are significantly less likely to get divorced than average and tall men. When it comes to love, short is long-lasting.
2. Because faces look way better than stomachs
Even if your boyfriend has a six-pack, it’s no fun having a conversation with his stomach. If you are dating a short guy, you can stand up, look into his handsome eyes and speak to his face. And what better way is there to build a mutual and equal relationship? Also you run into fewer sexual positioning problems.
3. You’ll receive normal people hugs
Unless you really enjoy being lifted off the ground like a pet just to get a hug, it can get pretty annoying when your boyfriend is tall. You can hug a short boyfriend while standing on the ground (and if you’re taller than him, you might be lifting him up).
4. Kissing is less awkward
Kissing on your tiptoes is a thing of the past
5. There is no correlation between height and penis size
Seriously, trust me. Or don’t! Trust this 1993 study, titled Annals of Sex Research, which found that there was basically no connection between height and penis size.
6. Short guys have more sex
A recent study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found this.
7. Short Guys Are Full of Confidence
In a world where short guys are often overlooked simply because of their height, they manage to make up for it in confidence.
8. You won’t have to give up heels, however they aren’t mandatory
Short guys know they are short, and very few of them will demand that you make concessions about it (the ones who do are jerks, obviously). On the other hand if you prefer flats to high heels, then a short boyfriend is perfect as you can ditch the high heels.
9. You’re Suddenly A Supermodel! Also you’ll look taller
Look at all the models in the world. What do the majority of them have in common? Usually they’re taller than the men they date. If your boyfriend is shorter than you, you’ll look like a tall supermodel in comparison. To sum it up, short boyfriends go above and beyond to make you feel taller and more important.
10. Because If You Think Small Stature Depletes Someone’s Awesomeness, You’re A Jerk
Shorter men can be just as hot, charming and killers in the sack as their taller counterparts.
