Why You Should…Date a Short Dude
There’s a great many things to do and places to see in this world of ours. As humans, our lives are pretty short (and if you party like I do, it’s probably going to be even shorter). So we have to prioritize! We have brains for a reason and that reason is…reasoning (well, at least some of us use them for that purpose: see comment about partying above). Let me be your voice of reason as I show you all the things you should be doing right here, right now.
It’s a stereotype that’s been pounded into our brains since we were old enough to spend our entire weekends watching Disney movies – your Prince Charming is going to be tall, dark, and handsome. Sounds pretty good, right? Sure…except for all those guys who don’t fit into that category. Why not give a short guy a chance? Here’s some reasons why you should date a short dude:
Clothes Swapping - Quality jeans are hard to come by and if your short dude has a sweet pair, then borrow those suckers! The boyfriend jean look is totally in and if he wears a tighter, more tailored style then all the better for you! Shirts, hats, scarves, etc. You will be an adorable hipster couple with no awkward walk-of-shame incidents (because you can just borrow his clothes and make a fabulous outfit for your early-morning jog home!).
Portability - In case you were wondering, this doesn’t mean you can put your short dude in your purse and carry him around like a Designer Dog. This means that because he’s probably around your height, he can go all the places you can go…and you can squeeze yourselves into compromising positions in places that a tall dude could never go (small closets, behind bushes, under the stairs, etc.).
Cuteness Factor – Short dudes are adorable. Period. Also, what is cuter than being able to look eye-to-eye and kiss without straining your neck/back/legs to reach his lips? Nothing, my friend. Nothing.
The Green Option – Apparently, short people are more environmentally friendly because they are smaller (mostly) and require less resources. Imagine if you two were living together and your house was solar powered and you recycled literally everything; you would have the most environmentally friendly relationship ever! Go green! Date a short dude!
Long Term – Short guys live longer on average because they are smaller and have less cells to duplicate. That means more time with your man! Very good news if you feel like pulling a Beyonce and puttin’ a ring on it. Of course, you still need to be healthy and exercise no matter your height; shouldn’t be too hard to find some ways to burn calories with your short dude, though!
These are only a few of the myriad of reasons to be with a short dude (the most important of which would be if you click or not). The rest you’ll find out once you start dating them!
