Since I am 5' 8" tall (shorter than the average) I was wondering? Why do women like tall men?

    My girlfriends all said that they want to look up while being held in my strong arms.

    They say its depressing to look down or in the eye because they feel that they would not be protected properly.

    I don't get why height matters at all! Before I was married, if a guy was able to make me laugh, hold me when I cry, talk about random things, and treat me well... that's all that matters. I'm 5'9", ny husband's 5'8", and my biggest celebrity crush is Jordan Prentice (he's 4'1"). Does height matter? Not to all women.

    Don't worry you'll find someone! I'm the same height as you and personally, I absolutely love short guys! I much prefer short guys than tall guys. The only protection I need is that from God. And plus short guys are adorable ^^

    Protection !! Most women talking about protection..This make me feel like we are living in a jungle ...nonsense...I know realized that most women thinking in a very shallow way....If height is what matter in protection, then why all the world unite in order to stand against a short man (Adolf Hitler) ,he is short , isn't he ? if you were speaking right then he must seek protection not the opposite...After all we are talking about realtionship between man and women not war(that what protection sound to me) , and this realtionship must stand with love, appreciation, passion , honesty not height...althogh it may matter to some people but this is the last we think about not the first...And by the way there is no perfect person in this world, and who lacks few centimeters, I bet he or she has other things that make him/her better than others in other fields, but shallow persons can't undersatand that afterall !

    Yes, women often want to feel protected. We may not live in the jungle, but we live in a world with a lot of bad people, and those bad people are more likely to be intimidated by a tall man than a short one.

    Additionally, for me, I enjoy when a guy can stand behind me and set his chin on my head, comfortably, or lean down some and set it on my shoulder while his arms are around me. It makes me feel safe, secure, and feminine.

    Taller man makes a woman looks and feels like a woman. it gives a feeling of safety and power, something between a (teddy)bear and bodyguard.
    Pls short guys don't take this like only tall guys are good-looking or good or girls like only tall guys, that ain't true at all. I'm tall girl and i've dated many times shorted guys, but i prefer tall guys for me.

    I'm 5'9" ,now, I was 5'10 1/2" before my spinal cord injury and subsequent surgery. In school most of the guys were shorter than me and one guy who was like 5'4" would always come and ask me to dance a slow dance when we had dances and he'd lay his head right on my chest...so that may be one of the reasons women prefer taller guys. Personality matters more than how tall a guy is, as far as I'm concerned. My husband is a couple inches shorter than I am. Before my back injury, I would wear 4" heels, sometimes, which put me over 6'2". It didn't phase me at all that my husband was 5'7". Didn't phase him, either. I think height, weight, looks are all just superficial, what truely matters is character, what's inside. I feel sorry for the people who never figure that out.

    Not all women like tall men. It's much easier to kiss a guy that's close to your own height. But the guy just needs to be maybe a couple of inches taller so that if the woman wears heels she won't tower over him.

    I think all guys are cute. I just don't like guys shorter than me because I so short already. I like them tall so I can tip toe to kiss them and they can carry me like the little princess I am!

    I don't know. I would rather look up than down. Plus, for some reason it just seems natural for the man to be taller. I don't mind guys who are around the same height though.

    Because I'm 5'11" Actually I have dated shorter men as well but prefer someone closer in height to me. It depends on their personality and how well we click. I think the "tall guy" thing is more a romanticized kind of thing because it feels so neat to be wrapped up in someones arms and feel like nothing could ever come between you. All the fairy stories that we grew up with had the "tall, handsome man" and the "small, thin woman" and maybe that idea is subconsciously implanted in our heads. How often do they have romantic tales involving a heavy set woman or short bald man? (Yes, they may be there, but how often?)

    edit: No I dont have problems with bald men, except for the one I used to be married to.

    i think women like tall guys because it gives them a false sence of security. The bigger the guy the better he is at protecting her. With the invention of the gun this became a myth a long time ago. Maybe now they like tall guys because they can reach things for them at the mall.

    I think that it also probably has something to do with seeing them as a provider -- I'm sure that taller men on average are stronger, faster, etc. than shorter men. This is interesting for two reasons. Fist, with the advent of feminism it seems like this shouldn't really matter as much as women should be just as likely to be providers (if they're truly equals, why should one ideally be taller and stronger than the other? But alas, genes are a bitch and they don't always listen to our social norms). Second, since food; shelter; etc. aren't really provided through animal strength anymore (we've moved in large part from animal strength => survival to wicked intelligence => the best provision of houses; food; etc.) it would seem that markers of intelligence would be highly sought after. But, again, nature's hard to argue with. It's only been very recently that we've made this transition.

    I prefer men around 5'10"-ish. (That's so I can push them around if I need to....LOL....just kidding.) But it all boils down to personality, no matter how tall they are.
