do girls like taller guys

Do girls miss out on a good man because of his height?

Do girls miss out on a good man because of his height? Do girls like tall guys? Height seems like a very important factor when it comes to girls and dating. And height is relative. A short girls idea of a taller man is a tall girls short man. When given the chance to date a tall guy vs a shorter than her guy, a girl is most likely going to pick the taller guy. The same way a guy is most likely to pick the prettiest of the bunch vs the ugliest in his opinion.

Guys will pick the most beautiful girl

Asking do girls miss out on a chance at love and a good man because of height is like asking whether guys miss out on a chance at love because of beauty. When you try to answer the second question; do guys miss out on love because of beauty is a no-brainer. Guys will always pick the most beautiful before he gets to decipher her character and personality. So, the question is… why aren’t women allowed to choose a man based on his physical appearance the same way men do?.

we unconsciously select mates who would put our offspring at some genetic advantage. 

There’s just something appealing about tall men. Tall men are more likely to win the popular contest in presidential votes and to be re-elected once in office.  Their greater leadership potential may have something to do with the fact that tall men have higher self-esteem (whether or not deserved). Tall men are apparently happier, and are less likely to feel jealous toward other men.

Short guys are intimidated by tall girls

Its not that girls like tall guys, its the issue of short guys being intimidated by taller than them girls. Seeing women date shorter guys is not as common but it happens. For the most part, girls want to feel attracted to a guy before they can fall in love with him. And attraction comes in different forms.

Genetically matched to mate

Most girls when looking for a potential mate or partner, will choose the one that looks more genetically matched. As well as the one that shows the most signs of the ability to protect and provide. Most women want to feel protected and this protective feeling SOMETIMES comes in the form of how ‘well built’ a man is. The better built he is, the more ‘attractive’ he is, and the more safe a woman feels. If she is bigger or taller than her partner or potential partner, people might view the potential mate like a brother to her or a friend, and not respect him as much because now she visually becomes the ‘protector‘.

Women with more money

Most Men don’t like dating women that make more money than them. Historically, a man would want to date the girl he thinks he can provide for, as a way to prove his manhood. If he cant do the things that make him a man, why would he put himself in the path of humiliation or resentment or shame

Looking the part

Men have a tendency towards choosing attractive girls as partners. Choosing an attractive girl as a partner is a socially conscious decision. People want to look the part. They want to be seen as being the perfect couple. They don’t want their love to be judged, so they can continue to ‘love’ in peace. Dating one that suits you is easy loving. Its socially acceptable.

Socially correct Roles

Its the same reason why people tend to shy away from racially different partners. They wont stare as much and i will be happy. This is the same reason why people stay in certain very unhealthy relationships, for the look. They stay because if they leave, what will people say? Socially correct roles include, but not limited to, being from the same race, guy taller than girl, guy thinner than girl, guy richer than girl, guy older than girl, guy heterosexual not gay, guy provider for girl, guy from same tribe as girl, guy speaks the same language as girl etc.

There are guys that have fallen in love with ‘fat girls’ but the relationship never went further because guy was expected to date a thinner, model like girl. But on the flip side, girl wanted to love the short guy but guy was too intimidated by her height. Even asking her to refrain from wearing heels around him. She was too tall for him. Girl loves short guy but guy has self esteem issues, so girl decided to never date short guys ever again.

Chris Humphreys and Kim Kardashian

When it comes to romantic partners, men and women tend to sort themselves out so that they form pairs of similar height. However, among married couples, women are more likely to be shorter than their husbands, if only by a few inches. Because even though girls like tall guys, a girl doesn’t want to spend the rest of her life on her tip toes and vice versa.

The relationship of Kris Humphreys and Kim Kardashian is the perfect example of height matters on the flip side. Although Chris Humphreys is tall, Kim Kardashian is very Short. The relationship that worked is Kim Kardashain and Kanye West. And, when you look at the height difference, Kim and Kanye have only inches difference between them in terms of height.

Love finds a way

Girls do not miss out on a good man because of his height, because if its true love, love will find a way and they will not care who stares. Girls have a right to choose the height of their partner the same way guys have the right to choose the beauty of their partner. Its all about preference. And Peoples preference must be respected and not judged.
