I don't understand why his height is a deal breaker to you. I, being a tall woman, have never had any issues dating men shorter than me. Assuming you were also attracted to his personality and not just his looks alone, he should still be a viable boyfriend. That said, it is a little concerning that he would lie about his height, but he most likely does that because of women who immediately refused date him because of his height. YDI for judging a book by its cover.

Same. I'm 5'10" and I've dated guys from 5'2" to 6'8." It's actually usually guys closest to my height that have the biggest problem with it, because they're used to always being taller. Sorry, I love my heels.

I see it as a red flag. He's dishonest. He claimed he was 5'-8" but turned out to be 5'-3". If he is dishonest about his height, who knows what else he is dishonest about. Having been there done that with online dating, you see this sort of thing quite often. Many of the girls I met would post photos from 5-10 years previous and would look nothing like they do now. I found it rare that a girl would post a current photo of themselves, the ones that would were the ones I would try to date because they showed honesty and didn't try the bait and switch tactic.

Yeah...and it makes it impossible for actual curvy people to be able to describe their body. Back when I did online dating, I stuck with "athletic," which I'm not really, but curvy or average meant plus size/overweight/fat, which I'm not either. Tl;dr meeting people in person is way better than online dating

You can actually send an honest photo and let the chips fall where they may. I like meeting online because I can connect with someone I might pass up in real life. I think that works in my favor, too.

Curvaceous, buxom, voluptuous are all good descriptions of a curvy figure. While some may argue that such terms imply plump, not so. Although there usage these days appears to be a little rare.

No, that's not my problem. I'm of average height. It just irritates me that girls openly discriminate based on height, when men are chastised for discriminating based on body shape.

I like online dating because I don't go to clubs or bars etc... so it's kinda hard to meet someone though I have found unfortunately the personality does not match up. They can hold a conversation online but not in person.

Met my boyfriend at a friend's cookout. Several of my friends found their significant others through friends, be it at a house party, cookout, or at a friend's band's show. All these relationships have generally been more solid than those of people I know who met online (myself included in the past).

That's great if you have friends, I guess. I moved 1000 miles from home to start over ( many reasons, abusive family being one) and it hasn't been easy. Making friends in your late 20's sucks.

My friends and I are spread out and don't get to meet up much (2 or 3 times a year) due to distance and work schedules so it really isn't an option.

Personally I'm only 5'6 and that's caused problems with dating in general in the past. However, I would never pass up a happy relationship because of the height difference. Sure I was a little self-conscious when I was dating my highschool girlfriend who happened to be taller at first, but after three years you kind of get use to something like that. Nice job OP, you possibly just let go of the man of your dreams because he was half a footlong sub shorter than you. YDI.

How shallow people can be. Look past what you see, you just might find something worthwhile.

I'm sad that he felt he had to lie about his height to you- but your reaction pretty much proves you would have not given him a chance at all if he had not. Your loss- he's likely too good for you, given your shallow reaction.
