Science reveals why short women prefer tall men

According to a study by experts in Konkuk University in Seol, South Korea, there is a correlation between height and happiness.

Data was collected from 7,850 women about the type of men they prefer. They found that women desired a greater height difference, meaning the more inches separating lovers, the better.

Researcher Kitae Sohn says, “Although it has been known that women prefer tall men in mating for evolutionary reasons, no study has investigated whether a taller husband makes his wife happier.

“One [reason] is the intrinsic value of height; that is, women simply like tall men, while unable to say why.”

It may also be because taller men tend to be more confident and have higher self-esteem. They are also considered more trustworthy and skilful, so more likely to earn more money.

What’s more, throughout history women were drawn to tall men because they were perceived to be stronger and healthier, which was important back in the day when men were perceived as the providers.

However, it’s not all bad news for the shorter men out there. The desire for women to have taller partners decreases over time.

Sohn explains, the desire for a tall lover “gradually weakened over time and entirely dissipated by 18 years of marital duration.

“The wife might get used to her husband’s height and its correlates such as physical attractiveness and strength.”

Interesting stuff! How much taller or shorter is your significant other?
