I'm 5'6" and Asian. Is there any of you who's in the 5'6"-5'8" range and has been successful on Tinder? Tinder is not manlet-friendly from what I've heard. If yes, what do you normally do? Do you wear lifts on the first date? Do you usually spike your hair?
I'd like to hear success stories from shorter guys on Tinder and OkCupid?

Lol. Ok I'm 5'8-9 and I'm Asian. Tinder not manlet friendly? How do they know how tall you are until they ask? So before they swipe, they don't know how tall you are. Its not any less friendly than normal dating.
How well you do depends on a lot of things, but being Asian is probably the bigger disadvantage not so much your height (since they don't know that to begin with anyway). I have Asian friends who'd swipe right on a 100 girls and get zero matches.
Personally, my success will vary a lot on location. This is the biggest factor for me. In a large multicultural city, I will do reasonable - maybe 10 matches for 50 swipes? In a smaller/remote city, where it is primarily Caucasian population I will get maybe 5 for 50 swipes.
And don't wear lifts or spike your hair or anything like that. You're short. Just accept that's the way it is. That's much more attractive than when they find out you're wearing lifts or you're not as tall as they thought you were.1

I'm 5'7". I'm aware of Tender's reputation as a 'hookup' app. I just wanted to try it out of curiosity, although I wasn't interested in hooking up. Gave it a try for a couple of days, and got a few matches as well. Around 3 or 4. But I just deleted the app, because like i said, I wasn't looking for hookups.
I don't know if you'd call that success, since I'm just 5'7" and my looks are average or perhaps below average too.0
I'm 5.7. At the moment, okcupid 12, adult friend finder 3 and fetlife 3. Got a play date with a girl on Tuesday and she is a bit taller than me. Me, I just try be as confident as can be. I shave my head, and have a small beard. No height enhancing things because once you naked:) nothing will hide it.0
