Makes sense; most chicks like a tall dude. Not too tall of course (like if you’re 8’0” that’s pushing it) but at least 6’2” is nice. No girl likes to have to kneel down to give her boyfriend a kiss, just like how no guy has to grab a step stool just to be able to reach his girlfriend’s cheek. You’d think that height wouldn’t really matter as long as the two get along – but according to research that quizzed 60,058 heterosexual men and women that couldn’t be farther from the truth. According to Daily Mail, while short men had the least number of sexual partners, averaging around 5, taller men had an average of 8.
Only very short men reporting notably fewer median sex partners – five – than men of other heights – seven.
In terms of average number of partners, men who were average to extremely tall reported one to three more partners than men who were shorter than average.
Dr David Frederick, a psychology professor at Chapman University in California, said: ‘These findings confirm that height is relevant on the mating market.
‘However, the relatively limited variation in sex partner number for men across much of the height continuum is difficult to explain.
‘Research has repeatedly shown than women prefer men who are relatively taller than they are.
‘It is possible that for most women there is a certain minimal threshold of height, after which they will consider a male as a potential sex partner, and thus men above that height will end up with similar numbers of sex partners.’
Tl;dr: if you’re 5’5” and can’t get a date to save your life, maybe it’s time to invest in a pair of platform shoes…or stilts, if you’re feeling adventurous.
