Short guys and online dating
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.
” “I would date you, but you’re just too short.” Almost all shorter men (around 5’9″ and below) have heard similar phrases, or seen them online.

What’s interesting about my client, Alexis, is that she had it wrong when it comes to her attitude about short men.
All this time, she’d told herself that she didn’t like short men because she simply wasn’t sexually attracted to them; in fact, the real reason she wasn’t attracted to short men was because she had a fixed image in her mind of what a man should look and act like as a result of her upbringing, and she needed the men she seeks out romantically to fit the same exact image of the men in her family.
