Let me play devil's advocate (sorry).
Many tall women ask the same "rhetorical" question, why don't guys like tall women, why are guys intimidated by tall women. I believe most svelte women are engaging in some level of "transference". What do I mean? I'll elucidate.
They are transferring their own societal requirements for a man onto men themselves, making them responsible, when they fail to attract the man they desire. In other words (and I understand it to some extent), tall women want a taller man. I get that, but that beau ideal may not always present itself, or work out on a deeper level beyond the infatuation stage of a relationship. And if most men are your height or shorter, that becomes an obvious problem. Eliminating 80% of the available population, amongst whom may be guys that could make you an incredibly happy woman and who would love you unconditionally, to satisfy a very narrow and in the long term picayune concern, is flawed strategic ratiocination.
For the record, I like tall women (for their long legs, and long fingers, and long neck). So, am I a tendentious commentator on the issue? Yes.
That's the other problem. If a man states he likes tall women, the tall woman misinterprets this as a fixation ("oh he only likes me because I'm tall). Think about the erred analysis here: what attracts men to women at first? The physical attributes! Some men gravitate for women with large buttocks, others to petite women, others to blondes, others to bronze-skinned girls, others to zaftig ladies, yet others to sylph-like femmes.
Do those women say "oh, he only likes me for my butt/for being like a doll/for my hair/for my skin color/for my curves/for my slenderness? Of course not! They are glad and happy that features of their body catch the attention of men. Obsessing over what attracted the guy in the first place takes a backseat role with prompt legerity.
Tall women fail to follow this logic too many times. They are so self-conscious of their height that if a man shows interest for their body shape, they cease thinking like the other women and surmise this attraction is actually a detriment somehow, instead of embracing it.
To recapitulate, many tall women demonstrate frustrations when they analyze and conclude that the main issues are a) their height, b) how men view this... but never consider c) how their own personal biases and unrealistic expectations have an effect as well.
You wanted an answer, you got one. I hope you do not take this as a blanket criticism, but as an alternative view that while not 100% correct (I would never bruit about that it's flawless thinking, afer all it is merely my opinion), allows you do rescue some valid observations once you sift through my inordinate verbiage. :)
