I am 5'4 and mostly gotten success from tinder only. For the apps that require you to enter your height, what should I put for it? I do wear platform shoes sometimes that give me + 2 inches, and can maybe add a 1 inch lift before feet start to hurt while walking. But I feel like 5'6 or 5'7 is still pretty short. I currently put 5'5 on Hinge and opt to skip for Bumble but I have been wondering if I can lie about being 5'8 and wear height increasing shoes at all times.

I don't have as much fear going into dates anymore, as no girls have brought it up. But I am thinking girls love quick filters, so seeing a low number at the top of my profile means instant rejection just because they are already overwhelmed with options. Even I personally swipe left on all girls who are over 5'6 even though I would be open to dating them (and would shoot my shot with) in person.

5'8 is a bit of a stretch i would say 5'6. MAX 5'7 try mixing it up and seeing if it actually makes a difference.

Why do you swipe left on taller girls? I find girls that are a little taller are alot of times cool with it. Just never bring up your height or be self deprecating or even acknowledge it. If you own it and dont let it affect you girls will not care either. They will be turned off tho if they can tell it makes you insecure in my experience

I just feel weird about it because I have never dated a girl over 5'6 before and I do have a small preference for shorter girls. I don't bring up my height to girls unless asked and I think that explains why they didn't seem to care so far.

Hahaha its shit that people use this metric. But like Papa Andy teaches. Honesty. But in the case of vanity i do agree pump it up to 5'7 or 5'8 and wear some inserts.
