Why Women Prefer Tall Guys

File this one under animalistic urges. New research from the University of Utah explains why we like stand-up guys -- and we mean that in the most literal sense possible. In a study that could only have been devised by men, researchers pummeled a padded block to determine the most effective fighting posture. What they determined: man hits harder standing on two legs than he does crouched down on all fours. These findings, say the researchers, may help explain why our ape-like ancestors started walking on two feet and why women prefer tall men...

Women prefer tall men because they are “better at fighting”

I'm 5'1" so I don't really have the problem that tall women have where the man must be over average sized.

I am 5'4" a lot of the shorter men I have been around have had these hot bods...5'8"-5'11" amazing bodies these men had...but my favorite guys have been 6'0" or taller. Was dating a 6'1" chubby cop. Bald lil bad ass looking big blue eyes and amazing lover. the shorter men i have dated with hot bods were just well they had short man syndrom. Hot but low self worth. But I like the idea that if a man is going to pick me up hug me I want my knees not to scrape on the pavement...
