We cannot discard the place of physical attraction when it comes to love and romance. So, whether it’s an unwritten law or a drafted checklist, we have a set of features we want in the opposite sex. Even though some say they don’t mind looks, I can only yinmu at them. They are entitled to their decisions, right? 

For some ladies, only tall, dark, and handsome guys attract them. Upon realizing this, the guys who fall into this category walk with their shoulders high to the sky. The pride! Many ladies are so obsessed with the Odunlade Adekola or Idris Elba kind of guys that Nedu, Aki, and Pawpaw wonder if they’ll be successful in the dating world.

6 Reasons Why some Ladies love Tall, Dark, and Handsome Guys

To be honest, as Simi named her last album, tall, dark, and handsome guys are a spec. So if you wonder why, here’s the answer.

  1. Reaching the top shelf is easy

Whoa! Whoa! Slow down, don’t stone me. I’m not saying ladies like your type, so they can send you around the house to pick stuff for them in high places. They think it’s sexy when you only have to stretch your arms to pick stuff without stretching or getting extra support for your height. 

Wouldn’t it be hot to help your woman pick up her favourite butter brand from the top shelf when you go shopping? You’ll be the cynosure of all eyes, and other couples will envy you.

Besides, your baby will be proud of you for having what she lacks in height. She’ll even brag about you to her friends about how much you come through for her. In addition, your relationship will be the interpretation of ‘he completes me.’

Ladies also love tall, dark, and handsome guys like you because they see you as a leader. They believe your decisions are great and can be followed.

Some ladies are short or average in height, so they need someone to look up to. On the other hand, they don’t want someone close to the earth, which they’d have to look down on.

  1. The confidence you exude

Wait, fess, guy! Do you even look at yourself in the mirror? If you do, you must have seen how your confidence matches that of The Great Khali whenever he walks into the ring. If you don’t, you should start doing so.
