It hasn't been a good week for gentlemen of small stature.New research has shown that being short can increase feelings of inferiority and incompetence.I wouldn't be surprised if his are actually better than mine, although mine are pretty good. Women say they are attracted to tall guys, but I get the feeling that us tall guys are more intimidating to them.
But *some* women also care more about dating an attractive/tall/rich/whatever superficial trait man than dating an intelligent, compassionate, awesome one.
All else equal, and as a woman who is 6'0, I would rather date a taller man than a shorter one.
I’ve lost count of the number of female friends who have stroppily flung their phones down on pub tables, wailing “I hate online dating, I hate it! ” when, after a little probing, it becomes clear that the "someone" they’re searching for needs to be 5”10, minimum.
Theme parks have less stringent height requirements than some of the single women I know. When I went on my very first date with the man who is now my boyfriend, I remember being a little taken aback by the fact that, in my modest two and a half inch heels, I could see clearly over the top of his head.
Other findings show that shorter people earn less, and perhaps most significantly, it is thought that tall men have an easier time of it when they’re looking for love.
