Tall women and dating
A former college football player and wrestler, Maestas said he dated three female athletes who were over six feet tall, including a volleyball player with five inches on him.
"I personally think dating taller girls is a lot of fun.
"Which I know is absurd, but it's just the conditioning I've been accustomed to, and it's hard to break from the norm." Back in 2002, ABC News conducted an unscientific experiment to explore how willing women were to date shorter men.
Frederick's claim is in keeping with the experience of Allison Hughes, 25, a 5-foot-8 book publisher from Washington, D.
C., who found that dating shorter guys made her feel less confident.
Curiously, the research also showed that women enforced the norm more strongly than men.
Twenty-three percent of men but only four percent of women said they were open to a relationship in which the woman was taller.
