My guess is that it isn't a preference with a lot of them since it's not like many girls even come close to 5'10'' never mind cross 6'0''... I personally like short girls but it's not overly common with guys, even with my preferences i've dated the few tall girls I have liked.
Different body types have their benefits. One of the greatest assets of more petite girls is - I don't know how to state this less crudely - is that the sex can ne more enjoyable because when everything is petite the sensation of intercourse, screw it, fucking is more enjoyable due the tightness a petite girls p****y. The more petite the firmer the grasp, the firmer the grasp the greater sensatiom, and so forth.
That said, I love statuesquely tall girls and a Im natrually attracted to them. I dated a 6' 4" girl basketball player. She immediately caught my attention and she had her lovely long legs wrapped aroumd my back at the end of the evening. She seduced me though I was willing participant.
I think it's the other way around. Short girls seem to just flock to taller guys. Asking women out is stressful so guys are going to go after the ones they think are a sure thing and when short girls throw themselves at guys it's pretty easy to figure out which girl they think the odds of getting to say yes to them are.
Short guys love short girls too ! I think you must be close when you say sexually manipulate/dominate, it must be part of it, but I think the fact that she is more vulnerable makes it easier for us to protect and therefore flatters our ego.
As a man, who is not on the taller side, I am 5'6"... I have made the observation before find this post that it's a dominance thing. Makes me feel more like a man if I can easily control things, physically. So yeah, probably a dominance thing, I think you hit the nail on the head.
That's not entirely true. Women often ignore the short guys. Nobody pairs short guys with anyone. Gender discrimination. I don't prefer petite women personally, many of them have ridiculous height standards. They want Shaq O'Neal. www.naturalheightgrowth.com/.../...-hoopz-290.jpeg
Agree with @Octavius, way more girls like tall guys. Just read how many girls say on dating profiles that they prefer people over 6 ft for example. here's some statistics: the average mean height preference difference of all men was 1.64in shorter. the average mean height preference difference of all women was 7.94in taller. And the shorter the women, the more they like taller men apparently! research.similarminds.com/.../227 There are a lot more men who like tall women then women who like short men! Men are much more likely to care about the shape of the body then the height, and women care more about height than the guy being jacked in my experience. Personally I like a guy 4~5 inches taller -- the average height difference between a man and a women. guys 1 whole foot taller would be weird to me haha.
