Then, of course, there's the equally antiquated idea that men who are vertically challenged are somehow less masculine.
A study from dating site looked at 50,000 interactions over two months and discovered that the likelihood that a man under 5-foot-9 is contacted by a Manhattan or Bronx woman online is just 1.2 percent. But after we surveyed mental health experts about what qualities matter or don't matter to their clients looking for lifelong partners, we discovered that shorter men are actually husband material.
Many women scoff at the idea of dating shorter men, and and a poll claims it's actually the vast majority of women.
According to a survey by High And Mighty, 70 percent of women say a man under six feet wouldn't stand a chance with them. For starters, society has taught us that men are "supposed" to be taller than women, but if we go by that archaic rationale, then I should be in the kitchen cooking up a pot roast for my boyfriend.
They found that the lucky dudes getting it on the most were 25 to 29 years old, weighed less than 172 pounds ... In fact, the Napoleon Complex is actually code for ridiculously ambitious.

Once you drop that absurd height requirement, you'll double, and maybe even triple, your chances for love.7. When you're laying down getting it on, who even notices height?
As we know now, Napoleon wasn't exactly as short as we thought; he was actually average height for the time. Men who are on the shorter end of the height spectrum live, on average, two years longer than taller men. In fact, the closer your man is to you in height, the more perfectly things are going to line up.
But here’s the thing: there is absolutely nothing wrong with dating a dude who’s not as tall as you.
In fact, it’s kind of silly to throw away what could be a great relationship just because of someone’s height.
After all, his height has nothing to do with his personality and what kind of person he is.It's easy to underestimate how important it is just to look each other right in the eye. Probably while he was chilling in a bar in college, a tall, beautiful woman pointed at him and drunk whisper-yelled to her friend, "He's so cute but also short. " She's a sad, vague memory now, and you are the most beautiful lady in the world to him.7.
