Handsome I get, obviously. Dark? Yeah, I definitely understand dark. But tall? Why tall?
It's not like height automatically fulfills that "I'm a tiny girl and I need a big strong man to protect me from tigers and serial killers and serial killer tigers" instinct / stereotype. An extra half-foot of leg and torso doesn't automatically confer kung fu skills, or even strength.
There is one situation I can think of where height matters, but it is almost always a detriment. I'm talking about one of my favourite configurations of people, the sixty-nine. If a girl is dating a "tall" guy (i.e. taller than her), this position is awkward, and may lead to stiff necks, stretched appendages, and/or a permanent hunch-back.
I know sometimes you're a bit dim, so let me illustrate this for you. Let's say Lady GaGa (5'1") has made special friends with Conan O'Brien (6'4"):
It doesn't work! Neither of them are enjoying themselves.
But let's say Conan goes for someone more his height, like Jane Lynch (6'0")
So yeah, go for dark, go for handsome, but please, don't go for tall, because look what you are missing out on. LOOK. Unless you are Jane Lynch and then it's okay. Or Anne Coulter (6'0"), but I'd really prefer if you didn't have babies.
Females and gay dudes: can you explain to me why tall men are alluring?

P.S. I find it a bit disturbing that there is a whole community devoted to figuring out how tall celebrities are.
