THE TINDER HEIGHTISTS
Why height matters in the dating world
Seeing so many profiles, we couldn’t help but notice how often men and women referred to their height. Despite popular belief, not every man on Tinder is over 6ft, and this seems to be a problem for a lot of ladies. It got so bad that many a man even resorts to lying about it. But be careful: being untruthful about how tall you are is only going to get back at you in the long run. What is more, most girls like to wear their high heels and even those who don’t will probably wear them for weddings, parties and nights out. Also, height can’t really be hidden by the dark and men’s shoes can only get you an extra inch at the most, so the truth is bound to come out. Just be honest! There are plenty of girls out there who are not very tall and, unlike Katy, prefer partners they can look at rather than up to.
Often times, you can see men getting grumpy on their bios when mentioning how far they reach into the sky. Why are they so resentful? As this article spells out, girls who are tall often feel just as conscious as those who aren’t and this is main real reason behind women profiles making their height or height requirements explicit.
Society is also pushing women to be skinnier, tinier and weaker than their men, who will protect them and watch over them through the hardships of life: when was the last time tall Jane saved short Tarzan (Game of Thrones fans chill please: Jamie is 6’2)? We all notice when we see a tall girl walking around next to a short guy, so cut the poor ladies some slack, they are not all heightdiggers looking to steal some inches from your gene pool!
If you want or need to tackle the height issue, try to be creative, funny and witty instead, so that those who don’t put too much emphasis on height can start to get to know you with a hearty laugh
Or perhaps just be weird, that often pays off on Tinder.
Once a liar, always a liar. A white lie about how tall you really are could compromise everything you say afterwards. Keep it short and sweet, and hope for the best.</>
And if you actually are tall, embrace your height. After all if the truth helps, why not letting it out there? After all, statistics don’t lie, and apparently anything over 5’11 will give you an advantage. So let them know 😉
And finally, if everything else fails and you have had enough of battling inches as if they were love rivals, just use these dirty bombs:
