Height Matters!

tall short

If you’re a male seeking a mate, the taller you are the better chances you have of attracting a female. This perception is based on women perceiving taller men as more attractive, stronger, and more dominant. Penis length is also associated with this attraction. Yep its true! Women perceive men who are taller to have a longer penis.

So does this mean we should feel sorry for all the shorter guys? Uhhhh no! In the research done (see link for the research/references) women who were taller than men or the same height simply had to get to know the “shorter” man first as physical attraction was not enough for a first impression.  In fact, women want to get to know a man beyond the immediate attraction as this determines if he is intelligent, sensitive, and a good provider. Interesting eh?

Personally, I have always been attracted to taller men. But not necessarily for the reasons that most women in this research have recorded. Years ago, I used to believe that taller men were simply better able to “handle me” since I am a handful LOL. However, just to defend short men everywhere; I have to state the penis thing is simply not true LOL as I once dated a man who was only slightly taller than me (he was 5’8- I am 5’6) and he had a “package” most men can only dream about; both in length and size. Initially, I am more likely to be attracted right off to a taller man, giving the taller man an advantage over the shorter dude. This is no different from men picking skinny women over fat girls. Yep, we like what we like too!

What really matters here is what each person believes is attractive in his or her eyes. Stop accepting what is right in front of you and get to know…I mean really KNOW a person for who they are not what he or she “looks” like. Guys you are the worst at this as you always screw up when you simply go for the pretty face and the hot body. What you will find sometimes is that even the most prettiest or handsomest, turns out to be your worst enemy. While the individuals you simply take the time to know, no matter how unattractive at the time, will become attractive, once you get to know them on a deeper level.

Its called FRIENDSHIP.

  1. This made me giggle. It is true. I am generally attracted to much taller men, but being 5ft 8 myself, tall for me means 6ft 1 plus (hellooooo Eric from True Blood). However, M is 5ft 11, and while it annoys me that I can no longer wear amazingly sky scrapery heels if we’re out, I’m secretly glad I no longer have to hobble about after a couple of hours because of sore feet! Every cloud has a silver lining 🙂

    1. As a short man, I am more comfortable with a woman about my same height or shorter. I’ve never had any complaints about my penis (or my tongue). My biggest hang-up is age. I’ve always preferred women younger than myself. Most women I’m attracted to are in their 40s. I simply feel like I’m a 62-year-old male trapped inside a 45-year-old body. Actually, I’d like to be trapped inside a 45-year-old female’s short and curvy body!!!

      1. Bob no one can help who or what age he or she is attracted too. I truly believe there is someone special for each person. Don’t give up seeking…

    2. Thank you for your response. There is a “silver lining” in everything if we just get past negatives. I hate high heels too…but they are pretty! sigh… 🙂

  2. I am 5’10, so I will just settle for someone my height or taller. I sadly feel like a monster when with guys shorter than me and can’t handle it. Wish I could because it’s taken away a lot of opportunities with great guys because I can’t deal being taller than them.
    And I can’t stand it when I hear girls who at 5’1 say they only date guys 6’0 or over!!

  3. This is SOOOOOOOOO funny! I’m 5’6″ and have never let height interfere with my pursuit of a woman. Over the years I’ve dated women in heights ranging from 4’11”-5’11”. Admittedly when out with a taller woman we did get our share of looks and stares, they never deterred me. I’m sure there are a few women out there that wouldn’t give me a second look due solely to my height, but the way I figure it, those are not women I’d actually be interested in spending time with in the first place. I understand there has to be a physical attraction in order for things to work and that my height makes my physically unattractive to some women so I don’t hold it against them. It’s just the way things are.

    Anyway, nice post.

  4. Thank you for responding Chuck. Height, weight, eye color, blond, brunette, rich, poor, etc…shouldn’t matter but it does. Your right about “the second look due solely to height” if a man thinks of me in those terms I just smile and move on. Life is too short to be superficial. 🙂

  5. Funny post, I am tall and never felt comfortable dating a shorter guy, I have dated shorter guys, its just no fun bending down to kiss. I do feel guilty for judging guys purely on how tall they are.

  6. Lukraakvars everyone has his or her preferences and you should feel comfortable with who you date. Men are worse at ‘preferences’ so don’t feel so bad. Thanks for commenting and the best of wishes to you! 🙂
