Despite Mr Pastorelli being 9cm shorter than his wife, Ms Karen Phan, 40, a photography producer, the couple have never let their height difference get in the way of their relationship. I remember the way she exited the cab was so classy. The two spent the evening talking and he asked her out the next day. Ms Phan says that although she noticed the height difference - he is cm, while she is cm tall - it did not bother her. It's not like I'm 50cm taller than him. The couple have been married since
Why You Should Date Taller Women (And Women Should Date Shorter Men)
Tom and the author. Photo by Ruby Lott-Lavigna. Let me get this out the way first: I am 5'5" and height-agnostic. It's also why every woman on Love Island immediately lists "tall" as their most desired personality trait upon entering the villa.
This basically means that, consciously or subconsciously, women prefer tall guys. Such an overwhelming preference definitely has its roots in evolutionary and instinctive mechanisms. There actually are even more benefits to be tall on matchmaking sites in US.
However, despite that, the situation when a man is shorter than a woman is still considered to be an abnormal and incomprehensible for many people. Almost all people are used to the fact that a man plays a leading role in the relationship, it is he who guides the couple in the right direction and makes fateful decisions for two. The woman is given the creative role of the heart of the family due to a sensible and patient character. Hence, an extremely difficult and contradictory situation arises.
