How Much of an Advantage Do Tall Men Have? Are Tall Men Really Better Off?

don't want no short, short man **FINAL REPORT**

Short Persons Support: Research : Personals Analyzer

Now, I can guarantee that I will have people attacking me personally, but not the content of this post (making themselves look immature in the process) while others will INSIST that that is not the case (despite not showing any scientific evidence to the contrary)

If someone could show me some ACTUAL EVIDENCE to prove me wrong, as in scientific evidence or a study that goes against the studies I have posted, I will listen. Instead, I will get people denying the evidence and attacking myself in a childish manner.

Face it: short men have a better chance of winning the lottery then they do of finding a mate. Either prove me wrong using evidence, or fall silent.
My evidence is the fact that I've been married. And my wife was just as tall as I am. 5'6".

You are average male height. I am 5'2 1/2. Men that height stand no chance. Prove me wrong: any evidence to the contrary? Any?....
Nope. You are right. No chance. None. Zip.

You missed some biggies who really rocked the planet upside down.

It's widely believed that Alexander the Great, yes, the daredevil soldier, greatest militarist genius of all time and allegedly handsome young man was somewhere between 5 5 and 5 7. Since he was kind of medium height, Cleitus and others personally kept a watch on him in the battlefield lest he be injured.

Julius Caesar was 5 8. Octavian (Augustus) was of the same height.

Bonaparte was 5 6, yeah.

Adolf Hitler was 5 9. Churchill was 5 8. Joseph Stalin was 5 7 ish.

Short/Average men have ruled the roost across history.

OK couldn't read through all the posts but gotta say.

I am 5.1" dated over 6ft and the average preferance 5'8. Like the stocky hairy not too skinny and did date the 5'3 and there is something to be said for being the same length for accommidations. My father was 5'5 never had a problem seen him with short to 5'11 gals... He never had an issue with it. A person is a person and that is all there is. If someone isn't getting "dates" "realationships" it really has little (no pun) to do with his height!

I need scientific evidence. I have provided scientific evidence...can anyone give me scientific evidence to the contrary? NO!
