However, among married couples, women are more likely to be shorter than their husbands, if only by a few inches.' Perfect match: When Kate is not wearing heels, there's 7 inches in height between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - which is the ideal height difference many women want between them and their partner When it comes to romance, she said tall men are more attractive because: 'Evolutionarily speaking, one might argue that a tall man would be preferred by women because, if you follow the argument, he'll be stronger and better able to ward off physical treats to his family.' She adds that while this is no longer relevant today when we're not looking for man to go out and hunt wild animals for us, women are now 'conditioned by media images' of the ideal man to seek taller men.
The study by Dutch researchers found that women were most satisfied when they were much shorter than their male partners by about 7-8 inches.
"You see these women who are overweight and unattractive clamoring for a tall man on their profiles, but I can’t ask that the girl be attractive or under a certain weight.” Now, the above quote crystallizes an important point.
If you’re a regular reader, you probably knew that I was on the CBS Early Show in July. We wrote two new profile essays that were unique, funny and confident.
Appearing with me was one of my all-time favorite clients, Tom Pandolfo. We renamed him “Look Ma No Hair.” And we watched as his in-box filled up with interested women.
To see if the women would go for short guys who were successful, ABCNEWS’ Lynn Sherr created extraordinary résumés for the shorter men. Sherr asked whether there’d be anything she could say that would make the shortest of the men, who was 5 feet, irresistible. And although you can feel free to substitute “older women”, “older men”, “heavier women”, or “Asian men”, I honestly feel that nobody gets a rawer deal than short guys.
She told the women that the shorter men included a doctor, a best-selling author, a champion skier, a venture capitalist who’d made millions by the age of 25. One of the women replied, “Maybe the only thing you could say is that the other four are murderers.” Another backed her up, saying that had the taller men had a criminal record she might have been swayed to choose a shorter man. Honestly, ladies…You can get your own dishes from the top shelf.
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.
Another said she’d have considered th Lest you think this is an example of reality TV finding evidence to support a story, Tom tried his own experiment last week. You don’t really need to feel “protected” from the dangers of suburbia.
Sure enough, few women give a fair shake to a man who is 5’3”, no matter what else he has going for him. So I tried changing my profile for three days just to see what the difference was between being 5’3″ and 5’10”. And no amount of complaining is going to change it. And why, in God’s name, is it important to stand on your tiptoes to kiss a guy? Is there any legitimate reason not to go out with this amazing, amazing man?
Demanding that any suitors be taller than 6'3" is a rather limiting request considering the average male height in the US tops out around 5'10".
"It’s mind-boggling," says Gerard, 31, who is 5'10".
Their data revealed that the ideal height women seek in a man is 6ft.
