Why do short guys like tall girls?

I'm 5'11 and I've noticed that short guys, guys that are 7 inches shorter than I am like me. What is the psychology behind this?

  • because they are already short enough they can't find someone shorter than they are JK..

    well I guess they aren't very happy about their height and, as you know, you always choose a partner who you think is perfect in your image, therefore they choose tall girls because they subconsciously want to be tall.

  • If they can walk around want with a tall woman then they can be with a woman that they feel all men desire (models) which is projection on their part. Besides that sexually they may like the idea of being dominated by you when you ride them or feel strong as never before dominating you as a strong tall woman. Sex compensates for insecurities a lot and desire to achieve status in eyes of other men and end those insecurities within them with women go a long long way.

  • It may not even be the height. They may just like you and you just happen to be tall and them short. Nothing special about it really.

  • We all want what we don't have, which of course is why guys like girls to begin with.

  • I've noticed it too. I think it's a status thing. Having a tall woman is difficult for a short guy, so if he dates one, it increases his status. Some guys see long-legged, model- height girls as a kind of a trophy. Having such a girl by his side makes a guy look cool (superficial, I know). Or he just might be into tall girls. Many guys have a preference for tall women (elegance, legs and all that) so that's the type they go for.

  • it has nothign to do with your height.

    its been proven men are attracted to women shorter than they are.

  • That's not true for the most part unless he has a fetish or is just comfortable with his height and not intimidated by tall women, which isn't most of the short guy population. Short guys prefer short girls and Tall guys prefer short girls. Just like tall and short girls prefer tall guys.
