Height difference dating
The first question most strangers ask me is "How tall are you? In one survey, about half of collegiate men required their date to be shorter, while a monstrous nine of every ten women said they would only date a taller man." If I'm feeling charitable, I answer honestly: "6-foot-2." They often follow-up with, "Do you ever date shorter men? And online, it's even more brutal: Women can calculate how tall they are in their highest heels, add a few inches for good measure, and then filter out men who fall below that sum.According to You Gov, the ideal height for a woman is 5'6 and 5'11 for a man.
This is essential to know—it's not just about shortness, but also skinniness.Take Khloe Kardashian (5'10) and Lamar Odom (6'10) who, when married, spanned a whopping 12 inches in height.Married couple Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko take the cake though.One study says that both men and women prefer it when the woman is shorter in a relationship, but it also states that it is less likely for a woman to want to date a shorter man than it is for a man to want to date a taller woman.Research conducted by Rice University and the University of North Texas found just 13 per cent of men said they’d refuse to date a woman who was taller than them.
