ARE you a short girl who loves a tall guy? Well, you may be in luck. A recent study has claimed that shorter women who couple up with much taller men have the happiest relationships - and it's all down to evolution. This study has found that there is an unexpected scientific correlation between a husband's stature and his wife's happiness. Researchers found that out of almost 4, Indonesian couples that took part in the survey, the happiest were those with the greatest height difference.

Pretty much everyone you meet — even random people on the street — make comments on your height difference. Sometimes you have to call him over to reach things for you, which kind of makes you feel like a little kid. Probably a joke about not being able to get the two of you in the frame. Sometimes, he hangs out with other tall friends and when they talk in a group, you kind of feel like a little kid in a circle of adults. You sometimes feel like you should be exercising your ability to wear ridiculously high heels, even though you just want to wear flats.
There is no denying that guys get a kick out of the chance to feel powerful in a relationship. If facts are to be believed, tall girls exude a personality of enhanced confidence and dominance, which can prove to be intimidating to guys. Being in a relationship with a short girl helps feed the male ego, leaving him to feel superior. Guys would like to think of themselves as knights in shining armors who comes to the rescue of their partners.
On the whole, guys really don't have super-strong preferences about height. If you're dating in the first place, it means he's probably thrilled with whatever it is you bring to the table as far as vertical orientation goes. But for guys who happen to be dating shorter women, these things are a pretty great bonus. It makes guys look taller. Even a man of average height will look much taller next to a short girl.
