rugby dating site - Dating a woman taller than you
An article on Jezebel discusses a report from the Atlantic that illustrates that the average height differential between 4600 married American couples was six inches and that the wife was taller in 3.8% of couples.
I will however add that, if you say you’re looking for 5’8″, you will get responses from guys who say they’re 5’7″, and are actually 5’6″.
But, as long as they’re cool with the height difference, and have good partner qualities, so what?
It turns out both of those are correct, but the number of inches we’re talking about is still pretty fascinating.
What’s more, there are studies that show who’s choosing a partner based on height, why they’re doing it and how height differs in homosexual relationships. Their peer-reviewed study, published online in 2013, found that in 92.5 percent of couples, the man was taller than the woman and that the average height difference was 14.1 centimeters, or 5.6 inches.
In the annals of “things that definitely don’t matter when you’re 70”, nothing is more irrelevant to marital happiness than height. If one partner is chronically unemployed or in debt, relations can get strained. If your partner can’t understand what you’re talking about or lacks the maturity to try, he’s a waste of time. If someone is morbidly obese, he’s probably not making it to age 70. ) But one thing that I’ve never really gotten – after 10 years as a dating coach – was women’s obsession with height. However, “when the author randomized the information as well to see what would come up by chance, he found something surprising: left to chance, the wives were taller in 7.8 percent of couples— twice as many as before. The author of the Jezebel piece is 5’11” and had a very healthy and refreshing take on height: I never felt I was making some kind of concession by dating men shorter than me — I just dated people I was attracted to.
