Online dating tips for short men Free one on one chatting online and email xxx
Growing up, I was always the tallest girl in the class, the tallest kid in the room sometimes—a good foot above everyone else.Of course I was self-conscious of that fact; I would slouch, hide in the back, do anything I could to shrink away.But that guy's comment (and online dating in general) brought me right back to that awkward stage.Over the years, I've dated men of all shapes and sizes—some taller, some shorter—without a second thought. Thanks to a Tinder binge, I've noticed height is an issue again—or maybe it never really went away.A taller man was a stronger man, a better hunter, and a better provider. Following the biological choice now may come as an anachronism. You definitely can add a couple of inches if you make the right choices.However, dating specialists say to blame biology and evolution, not women. Stylists and fashion specialists advise to shorten the sleeves and hem the pants.
I checked statistical data on height in the United States and found that the average height for men is 5 feet 9 inches tall (no, not 6 feet) and for women, 5 feet 4 inches tall.
Scientifically, though, making the choice based on height dates back to the Paleolithic era.
When all men were hunters, dating the tallest one was a wise option. If you’re short and think you can ignore your wardrobe, it’s a mistake.
Stulp and colleagues (2013), for example, found in general that among 650 heterosexual college students, women preferred taller men and didn't want to be in a relationship with a man shorter than they are.
According to a University of British Columbia study (2011), it's not only height to which women are drawn.
