A new Girl Power Strong survey finds: 76% of women say they prefer to be in a relationship with a man who is taller than they are. 25% prefer a man to be four to six inches taller. While 11% say the ideal height difference is six to eight inches.
How tall is the “perfect” man? Girl Power Strong set out to discover just that, looking at thousands of romance novels on Amazon to determine the height descriptions of the male main characters. So, based on this, the ideal fantasy man is six feet three inches tall. 95% of men in romance novels are at least six feet tall, with the average male protagonist six feet, three inches tall.
As for shorter men, less than 5% of romance novels featured a man who was five-foot-11 or under.
