For some reason I get weak in the knees by guys who are much taller than myself - September 5th 2016, 06:19 PM

Does anyone of you recognize this?
There is a guy at my school who is quite a lot taller than most other students (I would guess he is about 6'5 or so, and I am 5'2, lol), and this alone caught my attention, because for some reason I find those guys really exciting and sexy.
I am not sure how to describe it, but there is something about being close too a guy who is a lot taller and bigger than I am that I find amazingly awesome.
But of course, I would also have to find him cute and handsome, and luckily this guy at my school is indeed very cute as well - he's got a beautiful face and beautiful eyes, and he actually looks really strong and physically fit as well!
And this, combined with the fact that he is so much taller and no doubt also a whole lot stronger than myself, is definitely highly attractive to me.
Every time I see him I just him to come and put his arms around me, and if he sits down somewhere then I always imagine myself sitting on his lap, haha.
Sometimes he catches me checking him out like that and I look away and smile for myself, but he doesn't seem to have anything against it.

Do you know any logical explanation for this?
I mean, I know a couple girls at my school who have agreed with me that his height is a plus, but I'm not sure why. xP
Also, I would like to get his attention in some way, but I'm too shy for that so I'm not sure what I should do.

Hi there!

Height and physical strength is something we find attractive because of our ancestry. When we were cave people, it made sense to be partners with fitter men as it meant your children had more of a chance of surviving. So it's a totally natural thing, and although of course not everyone is attracted to tall, fit people, it does partly explain why you and others are. Of course it also comes down to personal preference: a tall guy might just be something you are into, and that's ok

In terms of getting this guy's attention, just try to start a casual conversation, and see where it goes. Just smile at him whenever you see him, and if the opportunity arises, just ask him how he's doing or something like that. I totally understand it can be really scary, but honestly just go for it, you don't know where it might take you

I hope this helps, feel free to message me if you need anything else

Best wishes,
Eve

Thank you.

I sometimes pass him by at school in the middle of the day, and I always try to walk fairly close to him.
I also find myself gazing at him a lot when he is in the same room as I am, and he must have caught me doing that at least like 10 times, haha (yeah, I look at him a lot when I see him!).
I just look away, smile a bit and feel my face turn red - hopefully he doesn't think I am too ridiculous for acting like that.
