Guys feel protected when they are dating a lady who is shorter than them. They feel more secure walking with such a lady than with a taller lady. Many times, we see taller guys dating shorter ladies than taller ladies dating shorter guys. It always goes hand in hand, like a matching format in most relationships.
They also want to give a cover for protection to the lady due to her height. Some guys want to be a lady’s shield, soldier, and armor against any attacks.
