Tall Beautiful Women - Too Much For Ordinary Men?
There are many social studies that show men prefer shorter women over tall beauties. However, the fact is that there are men that love tall women as well.
Also, great majority of supermodels are tall, beautiful and have “perfect” body proportions. How can this be if men prefer petite beauties?
Scientific approach and explanations:
Unconsciously men are drawn to shorter women. Numerous studies have shown that height is associated with power, strength, and dominance. It is also considered to be masculine.
Height has always been associated with competition between men. Men may certainly find tall beautiful women attractive however deep in their brains they are intimidated without even knowing it.
One theory that is always expressed by evolutionary psychologists is that since taller women mature sexually much later, men are attracted to shorter women for the purpose of reproductive success. Because of this, unconsciously they find the shorter women more nurturing and feminine.
Quite good points are made above and there are even more in this very interesting article: Why Men Find Beautiful Petite Women More Attractive. That being said, a very interesting conclusion can be drawn from the scientific conclusions regarding men and tall women – men are actually the weaker sex.
In fact, their egos are so big and their self-confidence so fragile that they can’t feel comfortable and manly when talking to a taller woman; and I’m not talking 7 feet tall, but 5'10" or even less than that.
Of course, not all men are this way but it seems that the majority of them are because it will be rare to see a man with a woman that is taller than him.
Okay, that was enough from the feminist that lives inside of me. Now it’s time to defend our beloved men because they may get too offended and start to cr… God, I’m having so much fun writing this article! :o)
Seriously, women are equally responsible if not even more so when it comes to the men’s “tall women pseudo-phobia”. This is because we don’t like shorter men. Yes, I said it! This is one of those chilling facts that men are most afraid of such as “Does the size matter?”
Everything said above brings us to one very important conclusion: a man that dates a taller woman is definitively a MAN!
