Models dating shorter guys

When you're looking for a woman to date, the list of qualities to consider can seem infinite. Height is often the first thing you notice about someone when you first meet.

In response, women around the world buy high-heeled shoes (and ignore the discomfort) in order to gain a few inches. When a group of women walk into a bar, most eyes turn immediately to the tallest one in the group — simply because she might be the first face they see.

And when men interact with tall women, as Roger Dobson explains for The Independent, the outcome is generally positive.

Whenever I think of a tall woman, I almost always picture Uma Thurman or Maria Sharapova — tall, blonde, alpha females. And while I wouldn’t expect every tall woman to be as strong-willed as the two I just mentioned, stature indicate personality.

Dobson explains that men make many conclusions about a woman based on her height.

Shorter men have lower incidences of cardiovascular disease when comparing taller men with the same health conditions.” Short men may be known for their “Napoleon complex,” but as Chiara Atik wrote in a 2012 post for the How About We blog quality to have in a boyfriend.” She also notes, “the general consensus from women seems to be that guys who don’t necessarily feel the most attractive will often work much harder in bed, whereas the Don Drapers of the world, who are used to being wanted and pursued by women, focus more on the act of receiving pleasure than giving it.” (Actor Jon Hamm, who plays Don Draper on “Mad Men,” is 6’2″.) Blogger Jeanna Barrett – who is going on 50 dates to food trucks (my kind of girl) – says in this post that short guys make great dates because they “are a more comfortable hug height and fit like puzzle pieces in your arms.” I understand where she’s coming from.

OK, I was kidding there — but, point being, there are pros and cons to a man's own height in seeking a partner.
