Height of love: Women find taller men more attractive
: When it comes to love, size does matter as height plays a key role in sexual attraction, a new research has found.
The study found that only after a couple has decided that the difference in height between them is right, they consider face, personality and body shape.
Men prefer to look down on a woman, while women are attracted to taller men, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported.
Scientists have even worked out the ideal proportions, saying a man should be 1.09 times taller than his partner. This can be expressed as a ratio of 1.09:1. The study suggests that the ideal partner for a 5ft 8in woman is a man who stands 6ft 2in.
By contrast a woman of 5ft 2in would seek out a man of around 5ft 8in. The study by Polish anthropologist Dr Boguslaw Pawlowski suggests we are programmed to choose partners according to this formula.
