Does the height or stature of an individual matter when it comes to dating and forming a relationship? As far as women are concerned, the issue is more or less settled for them. A woman is more likely to date a guy who’s taller than her rather than go out with someone who can’t at least stand shoulder to shoulder with her.
Opinions polls and surveys have overwhelmingly established that women would rather choose to hang around with a guy who’s tall, at least taller than them. This is so because women feel more secure in the company of towering men. For some strange or inexplicable reason, most women feel that tall men seem to give them an aura of protection. Nevertheless, there are enough women who are of the opinion that it is the guy’s persona more than his height that seem to make all the difference.
But when it comes to men, no clear cut opinion seems to appear on the horizon. Nonetheless, it is generally believed that men prefer short girls over their taller counterparts in matters of dating. The probability of a man settling down with a girl of short height and medium built is higher than marrying someone whose height is more than him. Men find women of short stature to be really cute, petite, humorous and sexy. Many men think that short girls are easier to deal with and manage.
You’re very unlikely to see a tall woman pair up with a man who’s really short or appears like a midget in her presence. Though you must have come across many couples where the man was indeed taller than his better or other half. Most guys find short height girls to be pretty and comely although they’re completely in the dark about this peculiar penchant or preference of theirs. Anyway, the following plausible causes may help in settling the debate on ‘why do guys like short girls’ for once and for all.
1. Guys Want to Have the Upper Hand in the Relationship.
It is not without reason that men have always been looked upon as the stronger sex and women as the fairer sex. So, men’s and women’s relationships preferences are established by their psychological leanings. Since men normally tend to be more competitive and aggressive than women, a guy who’s taller than his girlfriend naturally feels more in control of the liaison.
He’s also confident that he can offer complete security to his girlfriend. He surely had to compete with other men for winning her consent and as a man he must have strongly felt that his height was one of the factors that helped him successfully woo the girl. Men consistently feel that dating women taller than them will not only cloud their persona but will also let them (women) have the upper hand in a relationship.
2. Shorter Women Can be Embraced More Tightly
With due apologies to women who are more than 5’ 6” in height, a guy really loves to hug a girl who is tall enough to rest her head in his chest. A man would not really like it if he has to stand on his toes and strain himself to kiss and hug his girlfriend. So whoever said that good things come in small packages must have been dating women who were short and petite.
3. Guys Find Short Women Irresistible Because of Their Vulnerability
Short women appear vulnerable at times that literally compel a man to offer his protection. Though a short girl might be fully able to defensive herself in all circumstances, there’s something mysteriously magnetic about their diminutiveness that makes them more appealing to men. Their shortness also impels a man to defend her from the vices of the world.
4. Short Women Make Better Sexual Partners
Men are keener to have sex with women of short height rather than with women who are overly tall though there is no scientific basis behind nursing such a belief. Barely any man would be able to give a rational explanation as to why intercourse with a short woman would be more pleasurable than with someone who is quite tall. Most men nurse the belief that smaller women are more manageable in bed because they weigh less and one is able to fondle and caress them without unnecessarily getting worked up. You as a man are able to roll on and roll off short girls almost effortlessly and also let them get on top of you without getting immobilized or bogged down.
5. Tall Women Can Give Inferiority Complex
Men really have a tough time dealing with tall women. Since men tend to be more egoistic than women, they find it difficult to live with a soulmate who’s taller than them despite the knowledge that being tall or short is genetic. At the same time it is also true many tall women tend to be quite haughty and exceedingly confident about themselves because of their height. Such an attitude on the part of the taller women more often than not may hurt the inflated egos of the man and bound to give them an inferiority complex.
6. Short Women Are Easier to Move Around
Another good reason why men fancy short women and find them lovelier is because they’re more lightweight and can be move around quickly and easily. As far as short women are concerned, you’d really love to carry them in your arms and take them into the bedroom or place them on the couch without feeling tired. Small women can fit in snugly and make selves comfy just about anywhere that further augments their attractiveness.
7. Short Women Tend to Have Tauter Figures
Its basic human nature to get carried away by looks despite the knowledge that appearances can be deceptive. In this respect, short women happen to be luckier than their taller counterparts. A short woman with small breasts and a petite butt may look more voluptuous than a tall woman with similar features which in turn will make her more tempting to guys.
8. Short Women Make Men Feel More Secure
As far as relationships go, men tend to be more insecure than women because they tend to see their associations with women as a sort of power struggle. Men by their very nature not only want to hold the reins of the relationship but also want to have a firm leash on their partners. Since tall women are quite effusive and confident characteristically speaking, they’ll not be afraid of walking out of a relationship the moment they feel that they’re being exploited.
In this respect, short women happen to be more accommodating and tolerant and will always try their level best to be on good terms with their partners. It is because of this trait of short women, that men feel more secure in their company. A man in a relationship with a short girl appears to feel more dominating and complacent about the whole affair.
9. Short Women Happen to be More Effeminate
Biologically speaking, the oestrogen content in short women is higher than that of taller women. Conversely, taller women have a higher content of testosterone. This accounts for shorter women being more effeminate or feminine compared to women who are tall. Well that does not in any way imply that taller women are without their effeminateness but somehow short women seem to possess a heightened degree of tenderness making them more alluring to men.
