In short, pardon my pun, women like tall men for many reasons. Could it be a primal urge lingering from 200,000 years of human survival of the fittest?


Or the fact that tall men seem happier, more self-confident, and are likely to be less jealous of other men?

Much to my amazement, my research succinctly pointed towards a definite trend. Women make a beeline for taller guys.

Evolutionary psychology
Looking at evolutionary psychology, there is a theory called assortative mating that indicates humans tend to select mates that are similar to themselves, including height.
 

Gender and height stereotypes in the media
In our extremely communicative world, it's very easy to get tied up with stereotypes.

Taller men seem stronger

If their guy is bigger than them, they feel more petite. 

Many girls who were interviewed about why they lean more towards taller men say tall guys make them feel safe. They hold the image of being able to protect a woman, to keep her and her family safe. They seem stronger. 

Tall Guy Genetics
In the risk of sounding sexist, women have a primal urge to seek a mate who will provide offspring with the best chance of survival.
