      A new study from Rice University and the University of North Texas looked at how “height” factors into mate preference.  Taking data from Yahoo! personal dating advertisements, they found that nearly half of women tended to care about a man’s height, whereas for men it wasn’t nearly as important at 13.5%.  More study of university students confirmed that finding with 55% of women wanting a taller man and 37% of men wanting a shorter woman.  Come on guys, us tall girls need love too!  One female participant said “as a girl, I like to feel delicate and secure all the time.  There’s something to be said about wearing high heels and still being shorter.”
