…. as a man.
I will not going through the advantages of being short as a woman, simply because I am not a short woman and we all know the perks short women have, right?
But most short men don’t even know the perks of being a short man.
Look, the majority of people in our society think short people, better said short men have only disadvantages in life and Dating. While it is true, we do have disadvantages, we also have some cool advantages of being short in height.
The big issue is though; many of us only see the disadvantages of being short. If you concentrate only on the negatives, guess what happens? Yes, it will extremely harm your life, just because you purely think about the downsides of being short and you forget about the upsides (Yeah there are some)
And no, I do not mean advantages like: We fit in every bed or blankets are never too huge…. I am talking about really nice benefits.
Short People Live Longer
It is proven that we shorties live longer than taller people. Why? Because we have the Longevity gene called “FOXO3” we are more likely to carry this gene, which protects us from aging (source).
Check out my Height Conversion Article, and scroll down to tallest and shortest people in history, the short people always lived longer.
Oh and did I mention:
– We carry a reduced risk of getting cancer
– Develop less likely blood clots.
– Being short lowers our risk of heat exhaustion and sun stroke.
Ok, it does not matter so much how long you are going to live but rather how you lived, with that said, Be Bold, Seek Adventure and live life to the fullest!
Short Men Look Younger
It may be a slight disadvantage during your teens, but let me tell you that it is a huge advantage in your late 20´s and up. Women love it when guys look young, young means fit, fresh and full of life. Sometimes I date 19 year old women and sometime 33 year old women. If I was looking like I was I am my age, I would not date hot young chicks probably. I also get compliments from my dates that I look younger then I really am. If you are below 20 and you want to look older, just bulk up, get a beard, get tattoos and dress more mature, this make you look a bit older. Don´t worry you will look old soon enough. It is better to look young.
Ok, this can be a disadvantage or an advantage, depending when, where and how you play it. But for me it is rather positive than negative and here is why: When approaching girls it is better to look less of a threat (in the beginning). Women are faster to open up to a conversation because they are not intimidated.
Don’t get me wrong, women like intimidating (bad boys) guys but they do not like to be approached by some very threatening looking guys in public. Also, if you want to look more intimidating as a short guy or your goal is to look more intimidating than you do at the moment: grow a beard, get tattoos, get jacked and learn “Alpha Body Language”
Short Guys Get More Credit
Depending of course what you achieve, but people tend to be more impressed by successful short men, because usually they do not expect short guys to be successful. Again, when approaching girls, I feel like they are more impressed that I came over with confidence and talk to them (not saying they are more attracted). Yes people underestimate us. Use this to your advantage and surprise everybody!
Not only that, but you also get away with more than taller guys. If you made an inappropriate joke or something like that, people tend to forgive you pretty quick.
Look Muscular Faster And Easier
When we put on just a few pounds of muscle, it is pretty fast noticeable. Because a few pounds on a smaller body are more visible. Yes this can be a disadvantage if you gain fat, but as I said you have to use this one as an advantage and gain muscle. Get the Alpha Body. Obviously if you lose body fat (or muscle) it gets noticed faster as well.
You see there you have “5” major perks of being short, not just some stupid ones like I mentioned in the beginning. For example like I read them on some other blogs, for me small benefits of being short are:
- People have a more helpful attitude torwards you
- You fit on every couch
- Short men can shop in kid´s section. <<<<This is a huge disadvantage and I do not recommend men to shop in kids section. Boys bodies are different then men´s bodies and that is the reason kid´s clothes do not look good on men. DO NOT SHOP IN KID´S SECTION
You as a short guy, should avoid looking like a teenager at all cost!!! Most of the time clothes from the kid´s section look childish even if it does not look childish it is tailored not for men but for boys and again boys have wider hips and not broad shoulders.
From now on, I want you to concentrate on the advantages of being short not the disadvantages anymore. You cannot change them anyway.
Forget the things you cannot control and concentrate on things you can control and change.
Thinking positive is something you can control and change.
Boooom, your life became better in just a matter of minutes.
You are welcome!!
No seriously, I will probably say this in every article, but make sure you focus on the things that can be changed and work on those instead of constantly thinking about something that is out of your control. It is a waste of time and energy! Sure if one could choose being short or tall, no doubt everyone chose being tall, we cannot choose though! But we can make the best of the life we have, let´s do it!!!
Any advantages you think should be added?
