Do women feel dating shorter man
I was 15 when I first realised my tallness was a turn on to women.
The lighting was low, the music was loud and my stomach was doing the hokey cokey.
Even so, just because a man earns a lot of money and runs his own business doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a figure of authority – Napoleon, measuring less than 5’7”, on the other hand, most certainly was.
Even if height does suggest a higher status, this status isn’t one of authority by default.
Yesterday in Telegraph Men, body image expert Natasha Devon said that many of the woman she has spoken to say they are looking for a partner who is taller than them (a particular problem for tall women).
She gave me the once over, looked into my eyes and said: “I like ‘em tall” and that was that.
I woke up three hours later, delirious and deflowered, surrounded by bin bags in an alleyway somewhere on the outskirts of Bristol. She taught me a few things that night (a few more than I care to divulge here), but what I remember most was the sheer maniacal look on Jemima’s face when she realised how tall I was – it was a look I would soon become accustomed to and learn to use to my advantage.
The study found that most referees were taller than their assistants; "height was positively associated with authoritative behaviour"; and that "taller referees were better able to maintain control of the game" and display social dominance.
Simply put, if I’d have been referring the Uruguay match two weeks a go, Godin would’ve been sent to the stands for a second yellow, England would’ve made it through to the last sixteen, and I’d have swanned off with Suarez’s missus.
