It turns out that height, like many other factors, depends on the individual – their own physical characteristics and what they’re looking for in a mate. Let’s first start with the tendency for women to prefer taller men since this idea is a common expectation.
With men being taller on average compared to women, you might expect that most women would end up with taller men just by chance.
Generally, men prefer women who are shorter than they are and women prefer men who are taller.
Of course, there are exceptions, but overall, men prefer shorter girls because of a lot of reasons.
I should point out that I’m an 18 at this point and happy to use the word fat because I find ‘plus size’ patronising and I mentally think of it as phat instead. I set up these profiles on free online dating site OKCupid.
As you can see, both are identical except for the photos and the fact one has ‘overweight’ as body type and the other has ‘thin’.
There are still short women who are capable of keeping a man down, thanks to a karate or judo background.
You’d be amazed at the sheer number of women out the there who become obsessed with answering the age old question, “How do you get a shy guy to come out of his shell?I also changed the wording slightly just in case OKCupid cottoned on and took them down.The profile names had to be slightly different because the site won’t allow two the same.They stick to other sports with no height requirement, like hockey, football or baseball. Did you know that sometime in 1980, Gillis and Avis conducted a study about men and their height preference?They found out that for every 100 couples, there are only two among the couples have taller woman and shorter man.
