    I've noticed certain individuals with longer necks are more attractive than those who are shorter, but is this just me?

    Natural selection. Females with longer necks could reach higher food whilst shorter-necked females had to compete with smaller land animals. The long-necked females were therefore able to get food to feed their offspring who would therefore more regularly survive to have their own offspring. Because of this, males who were attracted to long-necked females had more offspring and so the gene for attraction to long-necked females was passed down more readily.

    Or perhaps you are a vampire and like a wide variety on what part of the neck to bite so thats why you pay so much attention to it and prefer long ones

    This could be true. After all, Gale Platt is quite the stunner.

    This.

    I hate how people try and find generalised attraction in traits (that they most likely hold) and project that it exists. If there's a nasty person with a **** personality and a long neck I would find them unattractive, if there is a lovely person, with a fun personality and a long neck, I'd like them.

    Necks don't play a role in my preference. But...maybe that's just me.
