Dating a short man

In short, it seems that somehow short men aren’t perceived as men.

Author and cultural commentator Bel Hooks refers to this fallacious, pumped up version of the real man as the kind of man who can "take action and break the rules." What characteristics do women find attractive in men?

For example, O’Connor and colleagues (2014) discuss how women find men with lower-pitched voices more sexually attractive. Women want taller men more than men want shorter women. I also feel safe emotionally with him because of his kind personality.

Anecdotally, I have heard more than my fair share of female clients disclose how a sense of security and protection are key factors. My point is that I wouldn't be as attracted to someone who couldn't keep me safe.

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.

The study found that the social and emotional image a man presents was crucial to sexual attraction.(And don't get me started on the deep voice argument.) Most importantly, what is completely illogical about the stigma of short men is how the physical size of a man has so little to do with who he is on the inside, and it’s precisely internal—aka personality—characteristics that matter in terms of how good a partner or husband a man can be. I always cringe when a person says something that rules out an entire category of people, especially when someone rejects another in a flippant, auto-pilot fashion. Perceptions of infidelity risk predict women’s preferences for low male voice pitch in short-term over long-term relationship contexts. For me a romantic relationship is useful: keeps me from being lonely, he can protect me from things like bears and creepos, sexual satisfaction, and we can depend on each other for emotional and financial support.In other words, if what women want ultimately for a long-term relationship is an honest, reliable, and committed man, short men should not be ruled out! "Yeah, sorry," you can imagine someone saying, "I've just never been attracted to short men." While so many women report this preference, I rarely hear any of them self-monitoring as they do so. Men's height as a reason to "feel safe" is the SAME REASON that you have the NEED to feel safe. society taught everyone that the tall man is better and thats that or maybe its also inside us that bigger is better thats why we have $$$$ $$$ is the great equalizer thats why society is going towards the 1%ers thats why we are not fair with money thats how shorter guys get the girl 5'9 with millions is much better than 6'0 and a tough life so many people wont have jobs in the years ahead cause we dont need most people they will be weeded out just like women weed out shorter guys women are super superficial.Specifically, the study found that women were least attracted to smiling, happy men, preferring those who looked proud and powerful or moody and ashamed.This finding supports all those tabloid-esque articles in women’s magazines which suggest that women love the bad boys, and that may be part of the problem: Women just don’t believe short men can be bad boys. He's muscular, strong, was a wrestler in high school, and he's very manly, mature, and stable.
