@154, I can only note that you indicated that a 6'2 liar would not have been a problem, but a 5'7 liar was (and 5'7 isn't even particularly short). I don't even blame you, the female preference for tall over short men is about as close to universal as anything I've seen in my life.
@157, not denying your experiences but in my whole life I've never heard any men indicate that they were not attracted to/did not want to date women who are taller than themselves and I HAVE had friends express the opposite preference (i.e. liking taller women).
During my single years I tried online dating several times (never lied about my height) and had absolutely no luck. No women ever contacted me. I wrote dozens of well thought out, personalized messages to women and got only a few perfunctory responses and no dates. (And I'm not alone; see http://www.ayi.com/dating-blog/online-da…
So that's the reason for my original advice: don't date online if you are a man significantly below average height. Take dance classes, join toastmasters, or develop other hobbies where you can meet women. Ask your friends to set you up. And when you find the right one, do everything you can to make it work because chances are going to be few and far between. I'm married now *HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF* and I hope I never have to seek a mate again.
Merry Christmas all, got to get back to my family now!
