Being a short guy on Tinder
post #1

So as a not so tall guy and hearing not so great things about how short guys are seen by women on Tinder I decided to get my feet wet and give it the old college try anyway. In less than a week I had 24 matches. 6 of them stopped talking to me when I told them my height (they asked). 10 of them didn't ask and wanted to go on a date. Out of curiosity (and not to waste my time), I bought my height up several times and none of them cared (with the exception of two who sucked their teeth and made comments about not being able to wear heels). 

The other 8 did not bother to respond to any messages (probably validation "I feel so good about guys trying to hit me up on Tinder, let me get their hopes up by swiping right!). 

I have 2 dates this week, so not too shabby! I'd imagine though that if I were 6'+ I'd have way more dates. I'd say even if you are short, give it a shot and don't let the non-repliers get to you.

imo, not much that can be done about this.  as this article states, dating in general and especially online dating, is at best extremely challenging:

I've come across that article before but I don't share his experiences. I'm saying I've had much success. Even a 6'+ guy isn't going to have a 100% success rate is what I'm saying.

Height plays a factor on Tinder but it isn't a lost cause. Most men who are too fat or too bald get rejected more than shorter men. I know because my friend, Josh, who is 5'5 uses Tinder and has had quite a number of interests.
