Men Lie About Height on Dating Sites

Men Really Do Lie About Their Height on Dating Sites

I ended a six-week stint with a guy I met online once by drinking a bit too much one night and saying "I don't think you're really six feet." So I really didn't need hard data to know men lie about their height, but it's nice to know I'm not crazy.

OK Cupid compared the average height of men in the US to the average height of men on the dating site, and found men who use OK Cupid are either two inches taller than the average men or are lying.

Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the shortest men are not the most likely to lie. It's men who are just shy of the psychologically important six-feet mark who add a few inches.

I have a friend, he's 5'6- I know he's 5'6 because I'm 5'6 and we're at eye level with each other- he claims to be anywhere from 5'8 to 5'10, his height changes every time he mentions it. I don't understand why he does it- he literally has women falling head-over-heels for him every time he turns around.

I have noticed this!!! I am 5'10" and have a little bit of a height complex when it comes to dating. I met with quite a few guys who wound up being shorter than me! It was annoying!
