It may also be in part, cultural.


When I was single and dating, I came across many women who said they would prefer to date a guy 6'0" or taller.

Never heard a max, but it's was a common enough theme during my dating years when I used online dating. I can specifically remember a few stories about women fixated on the fact that a guy lied about their height when they finally met in person. It was actually a deal-breaker for them...unless the guy made 6 figures.

I tell women I'm 5'12 so it is like I'm giving a free IQ test with one question!
