Having long legs is both an advantage and a disadvantage: men have something to look at, but having long legs sometimes makes shopping quite difficult for women. If there is one perk of being tall, it is that men find it easier to notice tall girls.

He is less awkward and more confident The reason why tall people get so much attention is not because they’re necessarily hot but mainly because of how awkward and gangly they can look.Short guys have better posture because they don’t have to keep bending or stooping.
