Not surprisingly, women are interested in a man’s height in online dating, sometimes even more so than his income, religion or age. Below are the results on how males across Canada measure up:

* A shorter man is 2x as likely to be contacted in Toronto compared to Calgary
* A man is 97% more likely to be contacted in Toronto over Ottawa if you are under 5’9”

The best cities for men under 5’9 are:

* Toronto (23% chance of being contacted by a woman)
* Vancouver (17% chance)

The worst cities for men under 5’9″ are:

* Ottawa (12% chance of being contacted by a woman)
* Calgary (11% chance)
* Montreal (11% chance)

In Canada, the average male is nearly 5’9″, taller than the average male American and Brit, so why are Canadian women so much friendly to daters of a certain height? As a species, humans continue to get taller, but the average woman in Canada is just shy of 5′ 4″, leaving plenty of room to wear 4-inch stiletto heels and still be shorter than a 5’9″ date.
