But see, I think it is just the coincidence that athletes are often taller than your average guy. The average height of the American male is 5'10". I am 5'11" and prefer guys that are taller than me. If I used height as a deal breaker(which I don't) that would automatically eliminate over 50% of the US population of men.
All I'm saying is that if there was a group of professional scrap booking men that were all well above 6 foot tall, I am sure I might like some of them too, but would you be calling me a scrap booking chaser?
