Do tall men like dating short women
How do tall women and short men survive the dating world?
A 2008 study of 382 undergraduates in the journal found that both sexes preferred relationships where the woman was shorter than the man.
Frederick's claim is in keeping with the experience of Allison Hughes, 25, a 5-foot-8 book publisher from Washington, D.
C., who found that dating shorter guys made her feel less confident.
I love the look people give you when you walk into the room with a really beautiful 6-foot-6 girl," Maestas said, though he admitted, "It gets a little awkward when it comes to kissing, especially when you're at a formal event and she is wearing heels." Nearly half of men in the study indicated that their tallest acceptable date could be taller than them or their height (24 and 23 percent, respectively), while 53 percent required their date to be shorter than them.
In the height study, there was not a significant relationship between endorsement of traditional gender roles and ideal height in a dating partner for men or women.
A former college football player and wrestler, Maestas said he dated three female athletes who were over six feet tall, including a volleyball player with five inches on him.
"I personally think dating taller girls is a lot of fun.
My phone gave a satisfying bing as a new message from Ok Cupid.com, the ubiquitous free online dating site, popped onto the screen: "Lime Green Robot is checking you out!
" Apparently Lime Green Robot liked what he saw, and sent me a message asking an important question to consider before even contemplating a first date: "Who is your favorite superhero?
I like Captain Planet." He claimed to be college educated, appeared to be attractive, used correct grammar, and had acceptable taste in music -- everything I usually require from an online suitor before I respond.
