Dating a very tall man
Other factors come into play as we make choices about who we want to be with.
Culture also plays a big part in what we like and what is valued in society.

For example, taller men may be seen as more powerful and attractive, so women who are with taller men benefit by attaining a higher social status.
Also as you might expect, height and physical traits are not enough to explain what women want, especially when looking for long-term romantic relationships.

What’s interesting is how women use height in gauging their attraction for men.
