Girls dating guys the same height
'It just shows that men too are keen to date someone shorter than them - not even the same height - and that the pool of men available who are of a certain height is actually quite small. It makes internet dating quite demoralising, not to mention difficult.' Jenny, 34'Tall girls struggle in real life just as much as short guys do.I am a shade over 5ft 11in and when I walk into a bar I look around and can instantly dismiss all but about three or four guys.If you're the type who can't see past height then you're likely to be missing out on something really great.So don't be a jerk — give the shorties out there a chance.In contrast, nearly half of the women – 48.9 per cent – wanted to date only men taller than they are. The participants answered open-ended questions in an online survey.The second part of the study, which will be published in in an upcoming edition of the Journal of Family Issues, included 54 male (average height of 5ft 9in) and 131 female volunteers (average height of 5ft 4in) recruited from a U. The findings were similar to the first part of the study: 37 per cent of male respondents wanted to date only women shorter than they are, while 55 per cent of female respondents wanted to date only men taller than they are.‘Something just feels weird in thinking about looking "down" into my man’s eyes.
'But I found that the pool of men I had to choose from was very small - only 100 or so.I don't want to date someone who is a giant, but they have to be at least the same height as me, and that's non-negotiable. Many women scoff at the idea of dating shorter men, and and a poll claims it's actually the vast majority of women.‘I like it when the body of your partner fits yours,’ said another study participant, a male who is 5ft 11in tall.‘It also makes it easier to kiss, hold hands and do other activities with your partner.'George Yancey, a professor of sociology at the University of North Texas and the study’s lead author, believes that the height preferences of men and women can be explained by traditional societal expectations and gender stereotypes.
