Researchers at the University of Chicago and M.I.T. went through a bunch of online dating stats where the average guy was 5-foot-11-and-a-half, and made $63,000 a year. Here's how much shorter guys have to make to be equally attractive . . .

1.  5-foot-10 . . . $87,000 a year.  (That's an extra 24 grand.)

2.  5-foot-8 . . . $201,000 a year.  ($138,000 extra.)

3.  5-foot-6 . . . $238,000 a year.  ($175,000 extra.)

4.  5-foot-4 . . . $284,000 a year.  ($221,000 extra.)

5.  5-foot-2 . . . $332,000 a year.  ($269,000 extra.)

6.  5 feet tall . . . $380,000 a year.  ($317,000 extra.)

That's just under $28,000 per inch. And they also found that really tall men can earn even LESS and still be attractive.

Men who are 6-foot-2 can make as little as $33,000 a year.  At 6-foot-4, just $12,000.  And at 6-foot-6 or above, you can potentially be UNEMPLOYED and still be a catch.
