You may not know who Clare Grant is, but I'm sure you recognize her 5'4″ husband Seth Green, voice of .

Some people think this much of a size difference between a husband and wife is weird. American fashion model Rhea Durham has been married to model/rapper/actor/producer Mark Wahlberg since 2009.

Having heard short male clients of mine complain about their jeopardized status in the dating pool, I can speak for at least some of them when I say that short men believe that women see them as less than or deficient, as if models pulled off an assembly line because they don’t measure up to the others.

If we conceptualize the dynamic along a continuum of developmental stages, it’s as if women see short men as awkward teens stunted in time, desperate at a school dance and relegated to the side wall.

The internet has been abuzz since a new study revealed that New York women on online dating sites respond to only 1.2 percent of men shorter than five feet, nine inches tall. I’m 5’9″, which isn’t outrageously tall, but I have been 5’9″ since the sixth grade, when it outrageously tall.

This surprising statistic has many up in arms — especially considering the average American woman is an appreciably more petite 5’4″ — including Glamour.com, which nobly set out yesterday to “debunk the reasoning” behind our apparent collective bias against dating short men. My self-consciousness about my size as a gawky preteen may have insidiously embedded itself into my neurobiology. I would love to date short men if only because it’d vastly expand my dating pool. I’ve known short men I considered both wonderful human beings and objectively quite cute — stamped with the official red seal of Boyfriend Material — but who never managed to flip whatever switch in my reptilian brain operates my vagina.

The literature has widely established that women prefer tall men to short men.

If you want to date somebody, date the shit out of them.

In short, it seems that somehow short men aren’t perceived as men.

Author and cultural commentator Bel Hooks refers to this fallacious, pumped up version of the real man as the kind of man who can "take action and break the rules." What characteristics do women find attractive in men?

But I bristle at the implication that there’s something inherently morally wrong about who I choose to date. I acknowledge that my palate is flawed and that I’m missing out on any number of delicious, well-crafted dishes that everyone else can enjoy.

Guilting yourself into pursuing someone who you know, empirically, doesn’t do anything for you is a waste of time for everyone involved. Yes, maybe every once in a while I should take a bite of goat cheese and see if I like it — in case it is, as they say, an acquired taste. That is a waste of excellent goat cheese someone else would’ve loved to have eaten, not to mention that I will probably vomit all over you.
