Women prefer dating tall men

Even beyond biology, this study showed that women had a stronger preference for taller men when they were looking for a short-term relationship. In other words, height and physical attraction may be most important when looking for a fling or a casual sexual relationship.

If we all only dated men who were 6’4” or taller, there would be so many people who were dateless, and competition for these tall men would be tough. Especially at the extremes, taller women and shorter men prefer those who are closer to their height (Hensley, 1994). Thus, knowing that there are limited resources in this area makes people more open to accepting a wider range of acceptable possibilities. With men being taller on average compared to women, you might expect that most women would end up with taller men just by chance.However, researchers found that of the 720 couples in their study, only one was comprised of a taller woman and a shorter man (Gillis & Avis, 1980).Also as you might expect, height and physical traits are not enough to explain what women want, especially when looking for long-term romantic relationships.

More than physical appearance, which plays mostly in short-term relationships, women value personality, intelligence, and career choice (Braun & Bryan, 2006). Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 6, 396-401.

On the other hand, this also suggests that women at the shorter end of the spectrum and men at the taller end can afford to be more selective in who they wish to date, since they have a wider available dating pool from which to choose.

Another important finding in how height impacts attraction are our relationship goals.

In addition, if height signals physical dominance, it is likely that taller men make women feel smaller, protected, and perhaps more “feminine” as well.

In line with this idea, research has found that women with more “traditional” gender role expectations were less willing to date shorter men (Salska, et al., 2008).

Women may learn to value men who are rewarded in society.

    There may have been a light hearted romcom in the script somewhere and with a deft Directors hand it could have worked. Summary A very poor, almost incompetent comedy/romance caper, one can only hope that any sequel plans are immediately terminated with extreme prejudice.
