There's probably a reason that women have historically sought tall, dark, handsome men. Let's look at the science of it:
In days of yore, taller men could reach higher into the trees and deeper into the water, thus more food sources would be available. Taller individuals could also provide a better vantage in looking over the obstacles in the terrain.
Dark is relative. So consider that if a man is pallid, it might suggest sickness. A sick man might not be able to provide well for a family. A darker complexion suggests a more robust state of health.
Handsome is also relative. What's one woman's nourishment is another's poison. Likewise, some women find some men attractive, while others find the same guys somewhat less to their liking.
I don't by any means consider myself good-looking, but some women do (for reasons I've yet to grasp)!
I call the tall dark man fairy tales
when i was young, i had this plan how i was going to end up with a tall maybe like 6"4, a doctor, rich handsome/stunning man.
But in reality things will not end up that way, I ended up with a loving man, he has all the characters i wanted, expect the 6 feet height.
Sauron: He has to be well read. Well spoken. Selfless. emotionally stable. Open-minded.Passionate. Taller than me or same height. Love sports. God fearing. Someone who can challenge me. Tell it like it is sorta dude. Loves his family. These are the basic things I need in a man. Fantasies are for little girls.
