Is finding love a tall order for some singletons?Posted on: January 17, 2013 16:46:38
Most UK singles will already have an idea of the kind of person they are looking for when searching for a new partner.
Whether it is a dark and handsome guy that makes a woman go weak at the knees, or a curvaceous, blonde bombshell that catches the eye of a single man, they do say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
But, when it comes down to a person's appearance, it seems that an individual's height has a much bigger influence than some people might think.
It probably comes as no surprise that most men opt for women who are daintier than them and women tend to go out with men who are taller than they are, but research shows that females who have smaller partners are even less common than statistics would suggest.
According to a Dutch study published in the Public Library of Science, in more than nine out of ten cases of UK couples researched, the man was taller than the woman, averaging a height difference of 5.5in.
However, based on typical height measurements, if men and women were randomly selected into couples, in one out of 200 instances, the woman would be greater in stature than her other half.
Of course, there are many more contributing factors in addition to whether or not a woman can wear heels on a date, but a person's height - or lack of it - does appear to have a significant impact when selecting a partner, even if it isn't a conscious decision.
It hasn't stopped a host of famous faces from breaking the stereotype of course, most notably 5ft 4in Jamie Cullum and 6ft model Sophie Dahl, who have been happily married for two years.
Not to mention the likes of 5ft 6in Nicolas Sarkozy and Tom Cruise, who aren't averse to going out with leggier members of the opposite sex.
