Default Does size matter?

So I was dating this girl... Hahahaha, nah, not that kind of Q.

I am thinking of a 3wt rod, Mid action. I could purchase it in a 7 or 8 foot. Which would be better and why?

I have only thrown 8'6"'s and 9's. I know the 7' would be better for smaller streams, with a denser riparian. Hmmm... But why else?????

7 foot rod - better accuracy at shorter distances, friendlier in tight spots.
8 foot rod - extra reach for dapping, better line control.
