Forget all complicated relationship advice. Don’t worry about money and status. Polish anthropologist, Dr. Boguslaw Pawlowski, did serious research and now assures it’s much simpler than that.
The key to relationship success, according to Dr. Pawlowski? Your partner’s height.
According to the research conducted back in 2004, the “correct” height ratio between men and women was more important than all other factors, including financial stability, trust, or even respect.
1.09 is the perfect ratio, according to this study. It means that a man has to be 1.09 times taller than his partner. That finally explains why things didn’t work out between Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, or does it?
Knowing that a lot of you will be curious, we made this handy calculator that will help you figure out how tall your partner should be.
So next time, before you begin to date someone new, run your numbers and make sure everything is right in the height department before you get too involved.
Warning: You might not like the results, but don’t shoot the messenger. We are only conveying what Dr. Pawlowski said!
