    Although my ex was medium height...I always admired tall men. Two of my sons are over 6ft. dark and handsome, the last is like his father handsome too but...not too short but not too tall either.
    They would tease him and tell him you are short like daddy, he would say height does not make you a man...:lol: A work colleague who is short and her husband short said. 'Short men have the same thing as tall men". Lol.:p
    Why do most women prefer tall men? There is something about a tall man that does command respect...not sure why. If I marry again I hope to marry a tall bald headed black man.:lol::lol: I

    What do you consider tall? And how tall are you?

    Tall in my estimation is 5' 9" or 6'. I am 5' 7".. Men seldom prefer women who are their height or taller than them.

    I wear heels...and I'm 5'6 and some change...so next to a guy who is 5'9 I'm the same height. So 5'9-5'11 is medium/average height for a man, IMO...you gotta be 6'0 to be considered tall for me...

    But height isn't a huge issue to me, as I've dated guys who were shorter than me (3" shorter)....I mean it's awkward and all, so I don't generally date guys who are tiny.

    I like tall guys cause they can reach things in case I don't have a chair or a ladder, and sometimes pick me up and do thangs :lol: short guys can crawl into small spaces.

    Height is not a character trait

    Little Man Syndrome​

    A man, small in stature, who attempts to overcome the way he believes other people perceive him (as a diminuative character) by 1) attaching himself to authority figures, 2) trying to manipulate himself into positions of control, 3) migrating toward positions of leadership, and 4) having a fairly volatile temper.
    Or
    Condition whereby undersized men compensate for their smallness by physically asserting their presence.
