Benefits of dating a short man

(Fickle lot, these men.) And modern women are supposedly pretty turned on by the whole “letting oneself go” aesthetic, with participants citing the 'dad bod' as a glorified male body type.

” In terms of professions, women like doctors, whilst men prefer freelancers – ahead of doctors, teachers and architects - more time on their hands to cook their dinner, perhaps?

Men also claim to love women that can converse in Spanish, whilst women are seduced by a French-speaking tongue.

So to sum up, the study claims that men like blonde, blue-eyed women, but women like short men with dad-bods. “What the research shows is a changing preference in what people find attractive but of course preference can’t predict compatibility,” explains Match’s dating expert Vicky Pavitt.

“The idea of a ‘perfect partner’ doesn’t exist so be open-minded about the types of people that you could be attracted to!

“I get that dating a guy who's a little shorter than you may mean that you can't wear heels on a night out, but is that really such an inconvenience that you'd risk missing out on Mr Right over it? When it comes to what men look for in women, apparently they go for - prepare to be shocked - ladies with long blonde hair and blue eyes.

It's probably not worth rushing to the hair salon though, as a 2011 poll of 2,000 men found 60 per cent actually prefer brunettes, and that was the conclusion Match drew just two years earlier.

If you’re like the rest of us and just trying to get a text back, then you know firsthand that the modern dating market is competitive, confusing, and ultimately deficient in quality prospects; no need to make it even harder for yourself by ruling out the “The One” simply because he doesn’t have to duck to enter rooms.

Because truthfully, isn’t the root of this stigma surrounding shorter men rooted in gender conventions that assert that a man is supposed to, well, dominate a woman in both stature and presence?

If he’s comfortable with you being taller than he is he will likely be comfortable with your ambitions, intellect, career and talents.
