Longer versus shorter cigarettes

I've been living in the USA since 2005, coming from Europe, where longer (100, 120) cigarettes are not so familiar as they are here. Since I moved here, I have noticed, most (almost all) men prefer short cigarettes, while most women prefer 100s or 120s. Can anyone say why that is? I have my theories, but I'll wait and see if I get any answers on this one.

hmm, I don't know. Thinking about it, I've mostly done marlboro reds 100s and marlboro lights 100s, alhough I have smoked the king size marlboro lights a lot too. And most of my girl friends smoke camels or parliaments, but not many 100s. It's so random. GUys on the other hand seem to pretty well stay away from 100s.

Not sure about this...I have a guy friend who likes 100s and have girlfriends who smoke shorts.  I prefer shorts because my smoking time is often limited.

It is rare I smoke anything other than a 100.  They have felt the most comfortable to me since my first months as a smoker.

i smoke shorts...for whatever reason 100s look stupid in my hands. maybe because i have little hands?

I started on 100s, so I just simply got used to them, and they feel normal.  I know its not a whole lot of difference, but anything shorter and I feel like I'm about to light my face on fire.  Even though they're obviously not long enough, I'm deathly afraid of my bangs going up, and the smell of burnt hair.  Irrational, I know.

I don't smoke menthols so I cant attest to the best brand. Non menthols I like are Basic, GPC and Seneca. We do spoil ourselves occassionally with Marlboros.
