1. The average is preferred
Average woman is around 5'3 or 5'4 depending on the area, and the average is always preferred. Most women are short anyway.
2. They are cute
Petite girls are always considered cuter and much more feminine. Small hands, small feet and small shoulders are so cute! Then a short 5'3 girl can put on 6" heels and be 5'9 and sexy and take them off again and be cute. Short girls can be both cute and sexy!
3. They can survive on less food
A taller person needs to eat waaaay more than a short person, which isn't really a good thing. A short girl can eat less and therefore has better survival chances in case of shortage of food. Just from an evolutionary perspective.
4. They have better bodies
A short girl with a 24" waist will look much curvier than a tall girl with the same waist size. Look at models, they are incredibly skinny yet they always look like a rectangle/inverted triangle shaped body. That is because the more compact you are the more defined the curves will look. Yes, some tall girls can look curvy but curves look way better on short girls and its a lot easier to be curvy as a short girl.
5. They look dainty and small
Which makes guys think the girl is submissive and in need of protection. No one ever thinks they need to protect a tall girl as she looks stronger/more masculine which means she can take care of herself.
6. Estrogen stops growth earlier
Yes, height is genetic. But the reason why girls are usually shorter than guys is because estrogen stops growth quicker while in men testosterone takes a while to convert to estrogen. Also girls usually have their growth spurt earlier than guys so they are usually done growing and shorter.
7. Women are supposed to look weaker
Women are supposed to look dainty and small. They are supposed to be much smaller and shorter, being taller than 5'7 isn't favored.
8. It is considered feminine to be short
And masculine to be tall. Stronger/bigger/taller is associated with masculinity and men, and shorter/smaller/weaker is associated with femininity.
9. Short girls have been proven to have more children than tall girls
And the most popular couples are always tall man/short girl. Either way short girls are more preferred.
10. They make men feel more masculine
The height difference makes a girl feel small and cute, but it also makes the man feel protective and masculine. It is a good feeling for both partners.
Hope you enjoyed this take.
