I wouldnt go putting in 5'9.5 down, met a girl online that said she was 5'7" she was from the continent, dont think she could calculate metric to imperial, she was more like 5'11" and I could tell she was a bit put out, didnt suit me but the error was hers, we agreed to go our ways rather than sit through the awkwardness, but I made it clear to her it wasnt like I said I was 6".
I can see why the OP is put out, I wouldnt be interested in dating someone that isnt at least average weight, Im not in model cover shape myself,could do with losing a few kgs but being overweight to me means you cant stop stuffing the buns into your cake hole, exercising recently and doing the calculations, I know its difficult to shed a small amount of weight as the kcals dont burn off easily.

Really couldn’t understand why she put up those pics, she was going to be rumbled as soon as anyone met her.
Rumbled when she walked did she?

I mean personal preference and all that but can you not just use your eyes?

People are attracted to who they’re attracted to anyway. Some people don’t like heavier folks and some people won’t bother with short-arses, just something you have to take on the chin.

I went on a date with a girl before and she was so heavy in real life that I didn't recognise her, she had to approach me and be like "Hi, it's me".

In her photos she looked like a pretty standard size 12 at best, and they were full body shots so not just flattering angles.

In person she was I would say size 20? Big is an understatement. I honestly did not recognise her, and even when I realised it was her, I still couldn't marry this person in front of me with the profile, at all.

Still went on the date and had a good time because she was good fun, but yeah, I just don't get what people hope to achieve by such wanton deceit, I would imagine not everyone would be as polite about it.

Reminds me of a female friend who went on a date with a guy, in his photos he just looked like an average decent guy, but when she met him, he was pretty fat...and bald.

"Oh yeah, haha, that was me 10 years ago...."

Why bother? What's to be gained?

The only thing I can think is that it gives them more options when they're swiping, more seemingly interested men, and then maybe they might win them over with their radiant personality when they meet in person. A sort of self-deception too.

I can't imagine the anxiety of waiting to meet a stranger off the internet knowing you look nothing like your profile pics. It's hard enough as it is with the wondering if ye'll get on, will we have to suffer through awkward conversation etc - but imagine adding to that the fact that there's been some blatant false advertising and he's signed up for another person than who you actually are?

There's a new dating app that only allows you to match with people of other ethnicities, because if you're a white man and you're only attracted to white women, well that's racist apparently.

I was on another dating site about 10 years ago and you can describe your body shape as "Average", "A few extra pounds" etc. The problem was, when a lady says a few extra pounds she could be in fantastic shape. Then you get morbidly obese women saying "A few extra pounds"

Does that mean travellers can find each other easier?
