I am vertically challenged, so it isn't too difficult finding a guy taller than I am.. Too tall, while I like to window shop, I'm not going to try
it out, lolol.
Seriously, I am a tad less than 5'2", and I am the tallest of all of my female relatives, mother, aunts, sister, cousins, on both sides...
5'8" is ideal for me, lol.
I am not racist at all, my entire family is like the rainbow coalition, we are everything from white to black, spanish, native american, ect.. I
myself have always prefered white or spanish men, even when I was younger., however, I have dated men of every race.
Both men that I have had significant relationships with had brown hair and brown, but looks wise, my ideal man would have black hair and light
I don't know why that is, that is just what I like.
My cousins like black men, one likes lighter black men, one likes darker black men, same with my two sisters. I have a cousin that prefers latin men,
spanish or italian.. One of my aunts perfers white men to the exclusion of all other races, and one won't date anything but black men, though she
prefers lighter men..
Then only thing we all have in common is that we prefer taller men..
Race wise, I don't know that there is always a concious choice of what we might like.. As I said, even when I was quite young, (I think I was about
10-11 when I discovered an interest in the opposite sex), I always perfered white and spanish men.
As for the tall dark and handsome thing.. Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.. I have seen people that really should have their liscence to
breed revoked, and yet there ar thoose who find them attractive.
People are going to want to be with who they find attractive.
The tall and dark part, well... I have the idea that a man with darker hair is going to be more impressive physically. There was an experiment where
two fake male lions were introduced to a pride of females, one had a blonde mane, one a black mane.
Most of the females went to check out the black maned male and even the one that went to inspect the blonde went to the dark side, lol.
Perhaps there is something tied in with color that gives the perception of dominance?
That is what I think.
As for tall, as was said, a taller male is going to give a woman a sence of safty, of proctection.
Couple tall with dominant, you have a mate that will provide well for you and your children.. More so than a smaller submissive male would.
As well men being said to prefer blone women, I think that there is something atavistic with that as well.. blonede is recessive, and I think that
instinctually a male may be drawn to a female with recessive genes to imprint his offspring with her.
Of course, there are those cultures where blondes, where white people aren't or weren't a part of the culture, and then there is the exotic
Some searches on the net would show you what the perception of beauty is among certain african tribes.. The Masi is one tribe that has been
extensively documented, sorry, the only thing I can think of right now is large bright eyes...
And in cultures where certain skin colors, hair/eye colors aren;t common, there is going to be a alot of attraction for those interested in widening
the gene pool so to speak.
To me, to each their own.
I would not care who my daughters brought home, black, white, asian, spanish, native, indian, whatever.. Though I confess, I would prefer they brought
home a male, but even if they brought home a female, I wouldn't mind.
