Why are men so attracted to petite women?

Is this some kind of fetish?

I am 160 cm, talking from my experience.

  • If you mean height - a lot of men feel manlier if they're bigger or taller than their partner. I have noticed this just based on conversations I have had with friends and an ex of mine who is more than a foot shorter than me. It does feel nice, but not all guys are into it.

    For me, I have always noticed that I prefer women who are very tall, as I just feel like they're more like my equal in a sense? Especially in the rare case they're the same height as me or taller.

  • Maybe it's simply put, everyone likes something? And some like 'em petite, some like 'em ripped, some like 'em trashy, some like 'em huge. :)

  • Most are not. I have never a man with those preferences, ever.

  • Ahhhh what I would do to feel this way... I'm 5'6 and I feel that is to tall I'm taller than most my girl friends it is sad...

    • I say it's a decent height. I'm 5'1 and I wish I was a little taller lol

  • We come from the factory with that already wired into our brains. It's not a conscious decision.

  • Not sure that they do. I feel like men don't even notice me cuz I'm so short

  • Not a fetish just what some guys like others like BBWs

    • What is BBW?

    • Bigger women - not necessarily obese and not necessarily fat by BMI standards.

  • I think guys feel all macho being way taller, etc. It goes back to caveman days when we used to club a woman and take her back to the cave, the smaller she is, the lighter she is, etc.

    Shows how much we've evolved. 😂

  • I like them all... from 160 to 180

    all attractive on their own

  • Fun to pick them up and I don't have to be in the best shape to lift them up the stairs bridal position.

    • Also very cute and relatable like puppy or kitten. They look at say things with the big eyes and little body and you feel more from it.

    • Like Willow! Have you seen the movie? Not the TV series. The TV series is so awful. But original movie from 1988. Willow there is so cute and you just wanna hug him when he gets sad and cheer him up.

    • It's like a cute puppy or kitten with a vagina that you can actually to if that makes any sense.

  • It’s just what some men like. Some men like tall women with long legs. Everyone’s different.

  • Men being taller and larger than women is a masculine feature. Women being shorter and smaller than men is a feminine feature. These are pretty basic visual cues that you are looking at someone you could potentially mate with. Obviously other traits come into play, but height/size is one very instinctive one.

    • What you're asking is like me asking, why are men attractive to women with breasts and why are women attracted to men with cocks... It's pretty common sense. The majority of men like female traits when it comes to selecting a sexual pattern and the majority of women like men with male traits when selecting a sexual partner. When a woman looks like a women and a man looks like a man, there's a good chance the circle peg fits in the circle hole.

    • But why would very big guys be into petite girls? Aren’t other girls also petite for them? For example, there’s this muscular guy he is 196 and really into me, I know he likes my personality but I also wonder maybe he also fetishizes me, I don’t know. Because I feel like he is too tall and I would think he would like someone closer to his height.

  • I think men, in general, are attracted to fit women. Whether she is naturally petite or if she is a little thicker, if they are fit then most will be found physically attractive.

    Not all but most.

  • Short and skinny looks cute. Tall women would look good if they frequently exercised and had an athletic build, but MOST women are too lazy to keep up an exercise routine for very long, and certainly not for many years into a relationship. Men know that so they are more likely to keep a non fat woman by having a naturally small petite one.

    • some good wisdom here. young men best read this twice

  • Small women are more cuddlable

  • Very easy to toss around the bedroom like a pizza

  • I love short. I don't know why.

  • Are you attracted to overweight dudes?

    Same principle applies but even MORESO when dudes see women. We want to be the BIGGER, STRONGER ONES.

    We don't want a Land-whale female on our arm

  • + one for petite girls.

    I also love other shapes and sizes :-)

    Petite girls are great to cuddle and fun in bed but can also cause problems when trying certain positions or activities like 69 when I have to bend double to reach her flower.

  • For the same reason women are attracted to tall men

  • Can't say I agree. I think men are attracted to attractive women, whatever their size. The particular thing about a petite woman is that a guy can fantasize about having a "spinner".

  • I’m not sure?

  • The smaller you are the bigger he (and his dick) looks in comparison
