It's not enough to even be noticeable, especially in shoes. So many guys lie about height/weight/age/employment/status (as in single or not) online I automatically expect a lot less than they say anyway. I'm VERY surprised when someone appears to have been honest, and I've had almost every guy tell me he's surprised I didn't lie about anything either!
Funny sort of story.. I was dating a short guy I met in real life- we were both the same height. I totally didn't care, obviously, and out of the blue he asked me how tall I was. I said "Um, like just a centimeter under 5'5"" and he said "No, you're like 5'8" because I'm 5'8"! When's the last time you went to your doctor? Mine said I was 5'8" I just KNOW you're 5'8" too" and he wouldn't relent... Again, this was interrupting a conversation I was having with another girl about dogs or something, and he was almost yelling this in front of everybody and mad that I didn't agree. This was like two months in, wtf lol
That's no big deal. Your height actually changes throughout the day a bit... you wake up at your tallest, then shrink a bit (barely, but still) throughout the day as gravity pushes down on your vertebrate and sort of compresses the air between them. By minuscule amounts but still, that counts for something! :P
Is it bad to lie about half an inch on a dating profile? C. Other
It is dishonest and seemingly manipulative going by how you rounded up to 6ft rather than rounded down to 5ft11in. This gives me the opinion you are trying to get the attention of gals who would cut you off for not being the seeming ideal.
What does it say on your driver's license? Half an inch is nothing but honestly if your drivers license says 5'11 I'm going to see it eventually if we date and I'm going to get a chuckle as to why you felt the need to say 6'0. That's just me I would t say anything to you about it or really care.
No it's not ok! When you're lying you're wasting peoples time! I do online dating and have met guys who lied about their height and thus wasted my time. Height is a dealbreaker for me because it's one of the major things that decide whether or not I feel attracted to someone. And yeah I can tell when they lied even just a little bit. It's just like lying about your weight or race or something like that. DO NOT DO IT. Why would you want to anyway? Don't you want to find someone who likes you the way you are?
Women lie about their weight and number of past sexual partners all the time. The only thing with height is if you exagerate by too much then it's pretty obvious that you lied. In your case nobody will notice a 1/2 inch difference unless they whip out a measuring tape. Or if she's 5'11, she might be able to tell you're not a whole inch taller.
That being said it's better to be honest because if your height is a dealbeaker, it's better to find out upfront rather than down the road. Or perhaps even round down and say you are 5'11, that way they might think "oh you're taller than I thought".
Well let see women lie about their height too, as well as, use MySpace angle and highlights to appear thinner than they are. They also use makeup to enhance their appearance as well as push up bras. So you frauding 1/2 inch isn't a big deal/
Girls dont give a fuck as much as guys do. A guy whos a 6 can feasible get an 8, but a girl whos a 6 will probably never get a guy whos an 8, maybe in highschool/college if they're lucky, but thats it. Looks matter more to guy more than girls, this is just true.
lol most men lie 2 inches or more, half inch is, u might wake up as taller than that
I'm guessing you haven't been doing online dating very long. After you've been doing it a while, you'll be amazed by how many people exaggerate and outright lie. As a general rule, women exaggerate or lie about their weight, and guys tend to do the same with height. And the beat goes on.
It's no big deal, it only matters if it was penis length , lol
