Appearing with me was one of my all-time favorite clients, Tom Pandolfo. We renamed him “Look Ma No Hair.” And we watched as his in-box filled up with interested women.
According to a new study by - which analysed the profiles of millions of members - women generally fancy short men.Yet his height defines him, since it has prevented otherwise interested women from being interested in him over the course of his entire life. Okay, I’m kidding about the last part, but only because I’m so serious about the rest of this. And even though we had good initial results, the fact remains, empirically: women don’t want short men.To see if the women would go for short guys who were successful, ABCNEWS’ Lynn Sherr created extraordinary résumés for the shorter men. Sherr asked whether there’d be anything she could say that would make the shortest of the men, who was 5 feet, irresistible. And although you can feel free to substitute “older women”, “older men”, “heavier women”, or “Asian men”, I honestly feel that nobody gets a rawer deal than short guys.Tell that to all the gym nuts downing protein shakes and making #gains.So to sum up, the study claims that men like blonde, blue-eyed women, but women like short men with dad-bods. “What the research shows is a changing preference in what people find attractive but of course preference can’t predict compatibility,” explains Match’s dating expert Vicky Pavitt.A 2016 study, for example, concluded that height is the factor women care about most in a man.And a quick swipe through any dating app would confirm this.You can see what a great experience it was in this CBS Early Show clip: What I haven’t yet mentioned is that Tom Pandolfo is 5’3″.I didn’t want to mention it for the same reason that Tom didn’t want to mention it in his profile: because it’s irrelevant to anything that makes him a good accountant, husband, or father. He’s just been confronted with a very ugly reality that has shaken his confidence in people.This goes against everything anyone has ever said ever about what most women find attractive.Various studies over the years have confirmed that women prefer tall men, so Match's findings have left us scratching our heads, to say the least.
