Do men love women the same height as mother?

Published By: John on 11/06/06

According to a Tokyo University study, men show a significant tendency to love women whose height is the same as their mothers. Women’s preference for men the same height as their fathers’ is weaker. image

These conclusions are based on statistical analysis of a sample of 692 individuals (303 male, 389 female), collected during the years 2004-2006. The average male subject was 19.3 years of age. His ideal height for a woman was 160.9 cm. But even taller men with shorter mothers preferred shorter girls, while short men with taller mothers preferred taller girls.
