The Blessings of Birth?

15/12/2009

A 2005 paper by Pavlovski & Jasienska discusses how women are attracted to taller men, that tall men have more reproductive success than their shorter peers and how women’s preference for taller partners increases whilst they are in the follicular (fertile) phase of their menstrual cycle.
However, this apparent advantage of for men – in biological terms – is socially undermined when you discover that this temporary attractiveness applies particularly when women want a fling – a short term relationship!
So, perhaps that old parenting advice about avoiding girls who go too far on the first date is right… They may not be around for long and the CSA could be chasing you for the next 20 years!
