    This is in response to a previous thread.....I was just wondering, and i'm not trying to generalize or anything like that.... Girls wanting their partners to be to be taller than them is something that most ppl just accept but recently i've wondered why???........why do gils like taller guys???(obviously it varies frm girl to girl) but in general?

    If a guy was shorter than me, there'd be something wrong with him. Anyway it's just what nature intended and looks and feels weird otherwise.

    Hm, I think it's 'cause of a 'protection' element. like shorter guys might be strong enough for protection too but a taller guy is generally a safe bet (I think this is subconscious stuff though). Also, personally if a guy was shorter than me, I'd begin to feel like his mother (just a default setting and this one might just be me).

    EDIT: also, isn't height an indication to testosterone levels or something? (not sure)

    Well I'm almost 6"ft tall so I can't really be too choosy but doubt I would go for anyone too short. I don't know I guess it's cos girls are usually attracted to the "manly man" and the taller you are, the more manly you are, also you feel more protected with a tall guy. Most girls like their guys to be all "big and strong" and I guess small guys seem more pathetic and more girly. I don't know, it's never bothered me that much because I would so go out with a short guy I would just prefer him tall, I'm not shallow though. My sister is funny, she is also tall and is completely unattracted to any guy shorter than her... maybe you should ask her

    Something to do with being protective. We should have moved on from this primitive sub-concious thinking to judging a person from what he/she/is is mentally than physically.

    This.
    Plus they're fun to hug.
    And when you have to go on tippy toes to kiss them. So adorable.

    Though on a more serious note I think it's more likely this. Also, it's just more "socially acceptable", stupid but true. As long as he's not shorter I don't mind

    I don't think I'd mind tbfh. But difference in height on a grand scale (whatever sex is shorter) is quite awkward I think

    it sure feels good to be 6ft2 right about now.

    In my book, you're not a man unless you're 6ft and above.

    I don't want to have to lean down to kiss a guy... it just seems wrong....

    But I'd happily date a guy the same height as me, and actually prefer guys close to me in height than really tall guys (i.e. 5'6'' - 5'10'' is perfect). I don't agree with the whole taller guys making me feel more protected, I find it intimidating and uncomfortable.

    Hugs from a guy my own height are much better, our bodies fit together nicely and we make much cuter couples. :o:

    Personally i don't think the meaning of move on has benefits as it would mean that we as humans might become something other than humans. It is not primitive it is humane the way of nature.

    I wan't my girl to be short as i want to look superior, dominating and stronger than her as to make her respect me and show her that she is safe within my arms. BTW we humans are surprisingly primitive we socialize to mate, we don't marry to get more partners and reproduce faster and our bodies go as far as to make s3x ultimate enjoyment so we are surefire to reproduce.
