Dating 101: Top 10 Reasons Girls Like Tall Guys So Much

Not all girls like tall guys but most prefer them. Some girls would say they care less about a guy’s height, but sometimes they say this to make the short guys feel appreciated. However, it's common knowledge that taller men are an attraction to girls. Well, there are many types of men, and each created differently. Some are stout, others are lean, while some are either short, tall or of medium height. Taller men look more masculine, and romantic and girls fall for that. Many people, try to figure out why girls choose tall men over short ones. This might seem a little silly and illogical, but it’s a trend that has been observed for a long time. In fact, most girls on dating sites and apps go for guys above 6 feet tall. In this article, we are going to reveal the reasons why girls go for tall guys.

Tall Guys Look Very Macho

This is another reason girls experience romantic attraction towards tall guys. While it might seem like total nonsense, most girls think tall guys look more male. You shouldn't be surprised to see a short girl meet a tall guy and after he has gone, she tells her girlfriends “Oh, he is handsome and looks so manly” and they all cheer. It is what it is, and in the eyes of many a girl, a guy’s height reflects his manliness. Height can be deceiving, but girls notice that feature first before taking in the rest of a guy. A tall guy might earn a point in a woman’s heart, but after she knows him and she gets used to his manliness, she gets to decide whether she should date him. It’s normal for a woman to assume a tall guy is masculine: it’s an evolutionary thing. Girls want to have a man who can protect and shelter her family.

Girls Feel Safe With Tall Guys

Short girls see tall guys as protectors and feel super safe when they're with them. They look like warriors and girls assume that in case of bad weather or danger, the guy will simply wrap his arms around her and ensure her safety. A Chinese Wiseman would tell you a protective man is the one who knows how to fight Kung-Fu but no, girls think otherwise. However, it can be a bonus point for a tall guy as height itself makes him attractive. Women find solace in their men’s arms and feel comfortable in times of distress. They feel like they are safe from whatever is happening around them when they are in their ‘small room’ which hosts only them, and a tall guy has a larger room of course. With that thinking, you shouldn't be surprised to see women go for the taller guys.

They Can Reach The Highest Points In The House

This sounds hilarious, but it actually happens. You might find a lady standing on her toes trying to reach something on top of a cupboard. After a long struggle, she might decide to fetch a chair or a ladder to resolve her dilemma. Some ladies would rather date a tall guy than buy a ladder. In fact, some ladies will date a tall guy and purposely throw the TV remote on the highest shelf and then send him to get it. They think it's romantic and this is one of the reasons why tall men are attractive to them. Tall guys can reach higher places, and they help the short girls reach top places too by lifting them up. Short girls get turned on by this act and even imagine tall celebrities lifting them up. Which lady wouldn’t want to be lifted up while on the beach or in a swimming pool?

Girls Feel More Feminine And Petite

Many girls want to feel who they are: girls. When a girl knows she is shorter than her boyfriend, she feels that their height difference highlights both of their sexes. Therefore, a girl would prefer to date a tall guy who makes her feel feminine and a bit petite, thus making her more confident. It’s the responsibility of a man to make his woman feel appreciated and boost her confidence, and so it’s not just his height that can make her feel energized. A good guy always compliments his girl, including tall guys. Nevertheless, women want to feel girly, and they get this satisfaction when they date tall guys.

Media Has Somehow Influenced Women To Think Taller Guys are Better

Whenever you read a magazine, watch a TV show, advert or catch a movie, you notice that the guys are taller than the ladies. Perhaps the only time when this is not noticeable is when models are posing with guys, and then it’s common sense as height is an added advantage for being a model. However, when you look closer, you notice that the guy is either as tall as the model, a little bit taller than her, or she is wearing heels. So, girls grow up believing tall guys rock, and from the romantic scenes on Netflix and the internet, it’s like girls are being advised to date guys who can kiss their foreheads and bend a little to kiss their lips. They are also taught that they can run towards tall guys and hug them while being swept off their feet. Short guys should not be worried though. After all, Jason Statham is a Hollywood hero, but he’s of medium height. Kevin Hart is also short, but he compensates that with some rib cracking jokes.

Tall Guys Are Considered More Confident

Short guys will, of course, oppose this, and it’s not written in stone, but the truth is most tall guys are confident. On the other hand, short guys likely suffer from low self-esteem because they feel like their height is a disadvantage unlike taller guys. Furthermore, tall guys are dominating the dating sites because they are aware girls prefer them. That confidence manifests itself immediately when a guy meets a girl. Girls are attracted towards confident guys, and since taller men have lots of it, they get more attention. However, some guys are so overconfident that they mess everything up before it blossoms. After a girl notices your confidence, she will try to figure how your mind works through your expressions and behavior.

Some Girls Love High Heeled Shoes ...And Being Able To Wear Them

Some girls would prefer flat shoes while others prefer heels. It likely depends on the occasion, but in most cases, heels fit the bill. There are girls who are a little taller, and love heels and the only way a tall lady would want to see her man shorter than her is probably from a balcony. In short, she wants a taller guy, even when wearing heels. The main reason behind this is because girls don’t want to feel taller than their partners and the shorter they look, the happier they are. Nothing gives them as much joy as wearing heels and still needing their man to bend over for a kiss. It’s a win for the girl, and if they split up, she might even decide to find a taller guy than her ex.

Women’s DNA Is Hardwired To Believe Tall Men Are Better

It’s genetically dictated in women that taller men are more attractive than shorter ones. You wonder how? Well, it’s just the same way men get attracted to women with wider hips, prettier eyes, younger bodies and bigger boobs. This is because their minds are genetically wired in a way that makes their emotions ignite when they notice these features in the opposite sex, and it has been like that for ages. Our ancestors preferred taller men because they believed that they were more protective and had the ability to provide for the family, unlike shorter guys who were considered powerless and unable to support a family. This is the way we have evolved, and the gene is still in modern women. You can’t blame them for preferring the taller guys: after all, their ancestors did.

Tall Guys Seem To Be More Powerful

Women are attracted to power, and when a lady physically looks at a guy and notices he is tall, she automatically assumes he can carry the world on his shoulders. Thoughts like that build in her mind, and she imagines he holds more authority. Not many people understand this feeling in girls, and therefore it’s important to explain it. When a guy holds a powerful position in a firm and acts as a commanding figure, he looks more attractive. Women are unable to resist powerful men, and therefore, men who are established and are powerful tend to draw more attention. One of the features that lift men up the ranks is their confidence, and you already know most confident people are tall. Women think that tall men are authoritative and that turns them on.

A Tall Guy Acts Like A Personal Bodyguard

When short girls are with tall guys, they feel protected. He acts like a bodyguard who keeps her safe. As long as he is tall and well-built, he's a keeper. Taller men are naturally intimidating, and since women want to feel safe and protected, they go for them. A girl imagines having the guy with her all the time and keeping her away from the nasty glances of other men and stalkers. Women love attention, but when she gets that one man and falls for him, she desires to have his attention only. This doesn’t mean that short guys can't be protective; but when a tall guy approaches someone, his height itself can scare off his target a little and women feel like tall guys can back them up.

For those who were wondering why girls prefer taller guys, I hope now you fully understand the reasons. However, it’s necessary to clarify that girls don’t just like taller guys: they love guys who are taller than them or at least of medium height, and most girls wouldn’t want a guy who is shorter than she is. A tall guy should be confident and protective. Girls assume that tall guys have these features and they may feel disappointed if their tall partners don’t. With that said, short guys can also be loved by girls, provided they are courageous and confident.
