I have really, really long hair-- long enough that it stops at the small of my back. All the guys that I have dated automatically kind of pet my hair, run their fingers through it, and even sniff it. I'm not bothered by this but I think it's kind of funny how they always go for the hair. I feel like whenever I hug a guy they stroke my hair. When I was younger I had short hair but now that it's long I get a lot more attention from guys.
So, why the love of the long hair guys? Hmm?

Yes, long hair is a strong indication of both femininity and youthfulness. And I'm not talking about pre-teens or anything, but rather, being in your child-bearing years. If you note, nearly every woman who hits menapause immediately gets the "short, sensible" (read: old lady) haircut. Yes, I know how awful that sentence sounds, but at the same time, you know it's true.
The point is, long hair means you're still young enough that you want to look beautiful for men, which is a biological response of being fertile. Men are programmed to respond to this indicator instinctually.3
