I'm curious about the results of this, so answer truthfully. Just the poll. If you don't want to post your true opinion verbatim, don't.

Are you attracted to your physical equivalent? The average height difference for men and women is about 5 inches. So, a woman who is 5 foot would be dating men 5'5". A 6'5" man would be dating 6'0" women.

So, it goes by:
-Height
-Weight
-Race
-Age

The same race and the same amount of pounds overweight/underweight BMI as you. And the same age, give or take a few years.

We'll discount face for now because people have varying opinions of their faces. The question is simple. Are you attracted to your physical equivalent?

I like all kinds of girls.

Really tall girls happen to look very sexy in a military uniform. I can't help these things

Everybody is.

That wasn't the question.

I think you should add "age." Someone 20 years younger is not your physical equivalent.

Hmmm...I need guidance OP!

I'm 6'1" and my husband is 5'9"...does that still count towards your "5 inches height difference" theory?

Way too many factors for attraction than height, race and weight. I've been attracted to people similar and dissimilar to me.

Why only within your race? I prefer women of color ( Greek, middle eastern, black, etc). I do not date my equivalent as I'm generally considered massive to many in the gym thus dating a woman well over 200lbs appears unlikely also-placing the lady around 5'10-5'11 still doesn't seem likely I could find this woman.
