5 Reasons Being Short Is BETTER Than Being Tall!
Alpha is 5′ 6″ tall and he’s short– and he loves it! The older he gets, the more he thinks being short is more beneficial than being tall. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro says most short dudes feel negatively about being short. And if you’re one of these guys, Alpha is giving you a new perspective.
Downsides of Being Short
Downsides are being in crowds and only seeing backs. It’s claustrophobic. Shopping for clothes has been a challenge in the past. The struggle to find pants is real. The shortest inseam that you can typically find is 30 – so tailoring can be costly.
The good news that companies are starting to get it – such as Peter Manning. Their clothing fits! Peter Manning was frustrated, being a man of modest stature, with shopping for clothes. He started his own company and created his own sizing system based on height and weight. Pants go down to a 26 and the sleeves fit so well! They have everything that a smaller dude would want.
Why Being Short is Better Than Being Tall
1. Short men have the appearance of looking younger
2. A pound of muscle on a short dude looks like 5 pounds of muscle on a tall dude
3. Shorter men are viewed as friendlier and more approachable
4. A study shows that shorter men live longer and have less cancer risk
5. A study reported that short men have more sex than their taller counterpoints
Closing Words from Alpha
Being short is freakin’ incredible. It’s not something to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. It boils down to you feeling good about who you are and confidence. If you use your height as an excuse, stop because you can’t change your height. Instead, embrace it! Get comfortable in the fact that you won’t get taller. Tall men have no advantage over short men.
And by the way, those who comment that Alpha is a short man, a dwarf, a midget, a tiny man, bring it on! It only reminds him that he’s so much more awesome than those who make comments like that!
