Unfortunately in this day and age, most women are still adamant that they desire a mate that is taller than them. I am not one of those women. I can appreciate and love a man who may be my height or even shorter than me (I’m 5ft 7 by the way).
So here’s a list of awesome reasons to date a shorter guy and I’ll finish it off with my own list of celeb crushes that are way south of 6ft.
1. There may be less competition.
Yes this may seem like kind of an awful thing to say but hear me out. Shorter men may get less attention from women in pubs, clubs, parties and other venues. Women aren’t always tripping up over themselves to chase the shorter guy and that means I can swoop in on that hottie and know I can usually have his full attention. Their loss is certainly my gain.
2. Hugs/kisses are perfect height!
When a guy is tall, I feel like I’m always reaching up or getting on my tip toes to kiss him or hug him. What’s wrong with just being able to kiss your man without having to stand on a yellow pages first? I don’t wanna crane my neck every two minutes just to look at my man’s face!
3. He’ll go the extra mile in the bedroom…
Speaking from experience…shorter men seem to have this thing about them where they’re absolutely bomb in bed. I suspect this has something to do with feeling like they have to make up for the fact their short (they don’t but damn it is appreciated!). They seem enthusiastic and fun and willing to try new things and I love it.
4. Sex standing up is way, way easier.
Yes. No explanation needed really?
5. He can make you look taller and therefore slimmer.
Always a plus.
6. Once he ditches the Napoleon complex, his confidence will rock you.
Nothing is more attractive than a confident man. A man who’s realized he doesn’t need a few extra inches (anywhere…) to make you happy, is a man who is ready to rock your world. He may be funny as hell, talented, whip smart and great in the bedroom and if he knows that and he’s comfortable with who he is, then he has no reason to worry and that confidence will really blow your mind.
Now when it comes to celebrities – I know what you’re going to say. They’re rich; they’re talented, better looking than the average man….etc. but I can’t exactly use examples of men I know in my own life, so just use this as a guide to show you these men have fan girls, so why can’t you?
