"In general, a small man is twice as likely to be preferred by women outside the United States as within.At first, one might think this is simply because the average height of men and women vary by country. For example, I've seen videos of women in Japan speaking about 5'9 men like they're the 6'0 guys over here. However, there's a problem:
"Except for the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand, there does not appear to be a significant correlation between women's height in a country and their preference for a tall man."
|Country||5' 4" man % in|
Notice how the average height for women in America is not so different than those in Russia or France. This also goes beyond dating. When we examine politics, Russia or France has recently elected short men as President, but the United States has not. Also note how other countries do not have derogatory stereotypes about short men like the English speaking ones do, such as "Napoleon Complex" or "Short Man Syndrome." This leads me to believe the social status of short men is less tainted elsewhere, similar to how a non-Asian girl who consumes Asian media is much more likely to date an Asian man, because he's more than just a caricature or negative stereotype. Just my two cents on these statistics.
