A new study asks one simple question: does height matter? When it comes to height, it is bad news for short guys. A new study from Rice University and the University of North Texas has determined that height matters somewhat more to women than to men.
According to the study, men are somewhat less fastidious about height. About 13.5 percent of them preferred to date shorter women. Nearly half of the women, on the other hand, only wanted men who are taller than they are.
The women indicated that being with a man who is taller than they are is more romantic. They did not want to be looking down into a man’s eyes and preferred stretching upward for hugs. In addition, being with a taller man did not hamper certain style choices, such as the shoes they might wear. Apparently, women also feel more protected with taller men.
