Thats normal. Girls tent to go more to man and boys to woman! thats very common. My son goes only to woman. Dont worry about it. It is normal, and it will probably pass after they are 3-4 years old :)

The best answer I can give for this is have the stranger danger conversation. My son is way too comfortable with people in general so I have to keep having this talk every once and a while. I just recorded my last talk so I can play it back to him later. In your daughters case that conversation will nip that in the bud. I don't know how old she is but if she can't take in the full stranger danger conversation start with letting her know she can't walk away with or ask people she doesn't know to hold her.

This may sound weird but she may have a type. Pay attention. My daughter used to go up to dark skinned bald men with beard.because both my dad and her dad's dad look like that. I think all kids trust at that age unless they've been given a reason not to. Keep an eye on here and try to let her know that's not always ok workout making her fearful.
