Downey, Depp, and Brolin … Oh My! Why “Short” Men Should Get a Shot at the Big Time


Robert Downey, Jr. 5’7”

Anyone who has ever had a dating profile on OKCupid knows that when it comes to dating, most women prefer tall men. From USA Today to the American Psychological Association, the experts all agree that at a 6-foot-tall men will earn more over the course of their lifetimes so to me it doesn’t seem fair that they would get all of the ladies as well.

As a taller-than-average five-foot-nine female I believe that there’s no such thing as “short.” Instead I prefer to think of men in three categories: regular, extra large, and fun sized.  Why? Two reasons: first, everyone is the same height when they’re lying down. Second, just because he has to tip toe to kiss you doesn’t mean he isn’t a rock star anywhere else. So what if he’s as tall as a hobbit? There’s nothing like feeling like an Amazon princess standing next to your guy. Put on your tallest heels and play supermodel meets record producer!
