So, as is probably obvious, this is inspired by: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=543581
I seem to notice quite a few short women dating extremely tall men. I’ve always thought of it as stabilizing selection, based purely on observation of taller men and women I know. I’d really like to know if this is the norm, because I don’t see as many very tall couples. In fact, I see taller women going for men that are about their height or shorter, but not too much taller. So, I’d like to know the height difference between you and your partner (I’ll define partner as someone you have had or plan on having children with (you don’t have to want to have kids, but someone you’ve been with long enough/love enough that, if you wanted children, you’d be that committed to them)). Please provide the height of you and your partner.
