Brooklyn gives shorter guys a little more hope, with about 2.5% of guys getting a date.

Staten Islanders respond just over 4% of the time.

Studies indicate taller men actually make more money.

And it turns out– it’s all about the money.

Studies show that for every extra inch of height, a man earns 2% more money.
