Long Story Short
Sorry short guys, but apparently short women are better off with tall guys. However, you should probably take this study with a grain of salt.
Now, I’m not one to usually write about a study from the Obama era, but the issues presented are no less relevant today. Essentially, researchers surveyed 8,000 Indonesian men and women and found a correlation between a husband’s height and a wife’s happiness. In other words, short women are happier when married to tall men.
What could be the cause of this? Taller guys tend to have more money and women dig dudes with fat wallets, apparently.
So, should you throw up your hands and give up if you’re short? Of course not. There’s the whole correlation doesn’t equal causation thing to consider, and there are plenty examples of positive short guy – tall gal relationships.
Also, this study would stand in contrast to another — albeit questionable study — that found women prefer short dudes and dad bods.
Plus, as I like to say, mo’ money, mo’ problems.
