I've been wandering around the web looking at information on height. I have no idea what awoke this current curiosity. Then again, who knows why I wrote an entire post about penis size. I guess the mind just wants the information it wants.
Anyway, I'm a fairly tall girl, about 5' 10" (1.78m), and I have only dated a man that was significantly taller than me on 1 occasion. The second occasion does not count. Seriously, 2 dates and I had to sneak in a shot to get me through the last one. Nothing to be posting about on my blog.
So, height isn't necessarily a trait I consider when deciding the level of attractiveness. It just never has been. Don't get me wrong, a tall-drink-of-water of a man does get almost automatic points for the aw factor. Those 2 dates are proof of it. But I'd never refuse to consider someone just because he was my height.
But it really is a thing for some of you out there. The idea of your man not being taller is unacceptable. You just don't feel like a woman, or so I've heard from some friends.
And apparently it goes both ways, only the opposite. Men like their ladies a little smaller than them. While that sounds obvious, I can't really say I'm buying it.
In my experience, I get a lot of short men barking up these legs. I don't know, maybe short men have larger balls, future post, and thus hit on women more openly. Maybe I'm not as attractive from up high. Maybe I should pay more attention to how I part my hair.
Who knows, but I found a little ditty of a graph I liked. Heights men find more attractive:
Shocker. Thank goodness I'm already married because my dating pool in Brazil just dropped to about 3 men. Then again, I think a Brazilian man will do just about anyone. Do not date... At least it's something.
And another shocker, we women have our preferences too:
|0% (0)||0% (0)||1.01% (1)||12.12% (12)||37.37% (37)||46.46% (46)||10.1% (10)||11.11% (11)||8.08% (8)||1.01% (1)|
|Significantly shorter than me||Shorter than me||A little shorter than me||About my height||A little taller than me||Taller than me||Significantly taller than me||Don't usually pay much attention to height in this context||Have never thought about it||It's hard to say|
Personally, my husband is about my height, maybe an inch or so taller. Of course, he counts that inch and I really don't care. When I put my big girl shoes on, I win, so there. But it's not a contest, and I do find him very sexy at the exact height he is. But out of curiosity... (you guys so saw this coming)
Where do you stand? How important is height for feeling the ZA ZA ZOOM?
