In fact, you’d think one would ask herself, As a psychologist, I don’t believe it is mean to deny a romantic chance to entire categories of people, but I do think people should listen to their own reasons why and ask if that narrow window of preference marks the kind of person they want to be. That same man who is "big enough to protect you" is the same man that is "big enough to overpower and harm you". Hollywood does the rest, all heroes who do miracles are usually tall. they never had, it was men who used to prove to be accomplished.
For example, if you see yourself as an open-minded person, you should have an open mind when it comes to dating to the point that you would truly be open to dating a wide range of men: tall, short, funny, and so on. If it weren't for men harming us, we wouldn't need men to protect us from harm. Less upkeep and your gun won't turn on you and be the one you need protecting from. Less upkeep and your gun won't turn on you and be the one you need protecting from." ... a tall men in a Hollywood movie walks right through 100 men, when in reality we (as a little shorter) know, the hero would not get passed when a single man like us is confronting him.
One client, in particular, told me that she feels “more secure” when she is out and about with a tall man, while she clarifies that she'd feel more nervous if she were with a man who could not protect her physically in case she were somehow threatened. So many of the possible explanations of why women don’t seek out short men sexually or romantically don’t make logical sense. I would most likely not be attracted to a man who's shorter than me and not very strong.
Having heard short male clients of mine complain about their jeopardized status in the dating pool, I can speak for at least some of them when I say that short men believe that women see them as less than or deficient, as if models pulled off an assembly line because they don’t measure up to the others.
If we conceptualize the dynamic along a continuum of developmental stages, it’s as if women see short men as awkward teens stunted in time, desperate at a school dance and relegated to the side wall.
All of this is of course secondary to his inner-beauty. For those women that must have tall men, there are plenty that don't seem to care. If 5'9" is "Average" and 6'0" is not considered "Tall", then stating 5'9" /- 3" as the formula is correct.
I think this has more to do with hypothetical preferences than actual. In reality, 5'6" is lowest "Average height" and 6'0" is highest "Average height". Something to consider; every day, new people come to our countries. One of the highest numbers of immigrants AND new immigrants having children in our countries, their new home lands, are Indian (Asian) families. It applies because, Indian demographics sight Indian men's "Average height" at just 5'5" tall; our height demographic will change as a result.
It's true that some women are sexually attracted and open to dating a short man, but a quick poll of your friends—or any group of adults, for that matter—will quickly confirm just how stigmatized short men are in our culture.
For reasons that betray logic, short men get the you-know-which end of the stick and are ostracized when it comes to partner selection. —is also at work in the dynamic of sexual attraction among gay men, I'll focus on women here due to sheer numbers. Not quite, though it does seem that most women feel that short men aren't relationship material.
I simply cannot think about more intelligent, sacracastic, sardonic and super witty reply to Kristina's comment. Really clever comment, you know, she she will never get, but most of us most certainly do. "when a short guy holds you it feels like a little kid is holding you".
To reverse your statement it can be said that for the tall guy it feels like he is holding a little kid, if the girl is short.
Now, my personal belief which stems from my education as a psychologist, my clinical practice, and my own life experience is that people hide behind the belief that sexual attraction works in a prewired way. unless you don't know how to use it, in which case you could end up having that gun being taken from you and used against you. such an experience does completely surprise women, though for men who have been fighting as kids, it is totally clear who is dangerous. it is since a few decades a feminine evolution which is the direct cause of more dumb men than women. in the near future women will be removed and replaced by female robots, or as an alternative normal intelligent women will be created by altering women genetically.
"I'm just not attracted to Asians," a female social worker I work with said to me yesterday as I discussed my new article. (It didn't seem to occur to her that her upbringing in the whitest, least Asian town in Utah had anything to do with it.) My hope, when it comes to the vast numbers of short men, is that women learn to give some of these guys more of a chance. So really, the first sentence should read: "Get a gun and learn how to use it properly." There are too many accidents, like shooting the 'burglar' in the bathroom and then finding it's your boyfriend wanting to give you a surprise. when was the last time any of these women had a REAL problem? tall men are usually like victims, and pretty dumb. while women think everything is ok, and even say things like "short men are at risk for heart disease" they completely forget that it is us, the normal sized people who are the toughest, who outlive them, who are doing the engineering, who are in average clearly more intelligent. either way most of todays offspring will be removed. I wish it were different because there are a lot more short guys in the dating pool than tall guys.
According to a University of British Columbia study (2011), it's not only height to which women are drawn.
