EarnTheNecklace.com, a revealing and engaging web site with articles written by women who exchange their stories and confessions about being in a relationship with a much older man, is weighing in on two recent surveys showing the vast majority of women would not date a man simply because he is shorter than they are.
According to two recent surveys, short men do not stack up when it comes to online dating. In Manhattan and the Bronx, only 1.2% of respondents said they would contact a man that was under 5-foot-9. Men in Brooklyn fared slightly better, with a 2.4% response rate, while 4.1% of women in Staten Island said they would contact a shorter man. Short men from Queens have the best chance of finding love in New York City, with 5.4% of women saying they would contact a man under 5-foot-9.

Women in the U.K. are just as selective when it comes to height and dating. The data revealed that a man who reported his height as six-feet tall was 33% more likely to be contacted than a man of average height (5-foot-7) and 77% more likely to connect than a man under 5-foot-4. The study correlates with the larger population in the U.K., where in 92.5% of couples, the man is taller.

“The dating experts at EarnTheNecklace.com are continually met with resistance by those who say dating an older man simply because he’s rich is superficial. These two recent studies confirm that relationships work when people find a partner they are compatible with,” says Bianca-Marie Coventry, EarnTheNecklace.com’s content manager. “Unfortunately, more often than not, people base their compatibility more on physical characteristics than emotional depth.”
When it comes to physical compatibility, people have no issue saying their partner has to be a certain height, have a particular eye color, or shade of hair, Coventry explains. While physical compatibility is important, it’s also important to realize these traits are 100% genetic. The most successful relationships happen when like-minded people come together. So while height might seem important, a better predictor to a solid, long-term relationship is finding someone who has the same ambition or motivation level, or someone you can interact with and/or handle stress in the same way, according to Coventry.
“These factors cannot be predicted until you actually meet someone,” she adds. “Online dating sites might contain a checklist of physical traits, attitudes, and habits, but those aren’t the only foundation of a happy relationship. For sugar babies in particular, dynamic relationships mean finding a successful, passionate, older ambitious man.”
