However, it turns out the short guy should never be overlooked as boyfriend material. Here are 9 reasons why your next boyfriend should be a short guy:
1. Easier to pucker up.
You'll never have to worry about tearing a neck muscle, or standing on a box just to kiss your boyfriend. A short guy might be closer to your height, which makes kissing easier.
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?
3. You can ditch the high heels.
If you prefer flats to high heels, then a short boyfriend is purf. You can wear flats that are comfortable and you will be at the same height. This is great for long-lasting eye contact.
4. They clean, and earn more money.
If you've always wanted a boyfriend who will help around the house or splurge on you more often, short boyfriends might have a distinct advantage. A study based on data from the University of Michigan found that short men do a greater share of housework and earn a greater proportion of household income.
5. 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).
6. Short guys could be healthier.
Short guys might have a health advantage over their taller counterparts. One study suggests taller men have an increased risk of prostate cancer. The possibility of better health makes short guys seem more suitable for a long-term relationship.
7. They will tickle your funny bone.
Maybe it's because they're tired of hearing short jokes, or maybe it's because they have to compensate for their height, but it seems a few short guys have developed an incredible sense of humor that must be tapped into. So if you're a lady who wants a man who can make you laugh, a short guy might be the answer.
8. Hot short guys are everywhere.
Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Joe Jonas are three celebrities many women have the hots for, and they are all under the average height for American men. This proves that good looking guys might just be right under your nose... literally
9. You'll look taller.
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.
