Then again maybe on a dating site that's a big deal and maybe you wind up with height inflation with guys who are 6'5" claiming to be 6'8" because too many guys who are 6'2" say that they're 6'5" who stretch the truth because guys who are 6' even say that they're 6'2", etc., etc., etc. I'd imagine that the size of various body parts might also be exaggerated if that's part of a dating profile.

There's definitely a point where tall becomes too tall and maybe even freakishly tall. Personally, I'd say that anything over six feet even is too tall, but I'm sure that some would place the ceiling lower than that!

Yep, didn't see that coming! Just goes to show that you shouldn't be too quick to write someone off as being totally out of it just because they have a hard time answering simple questions.

defcon: Online dating services are a risk no matter how you you look at it. You might get lucky, but there are all sorts of ways that things can go wrong. Even without hackers there are all sorts of scammers you might hook up with on these sites. For every lucky person who finds true love there are dozens who wind up worse off as a result of their online search for the perfect partner.

dilbert: Dating is a risk no matter how you do it. Go to a bar and you could still be in for a scam. I've heard so many horror stories about the dating experiences of different people that I have no doubt that there is no perfect way to go about meeting a potential significant other. Most people can find someone, but a lot of the time things don't work out in the long run.

pdm: Most of the time things don't work out in the long run. I'm not sure what the average length of a marriage is before divorce, but I only know two couples that have managed to stay married more than ten years, but I can list a dozen who divorced in less than ten years. The difference between expectations and reality is especially great when it comes to intimate relationships.

Single? COVID-19 Putting A Major Dent In Dating
If you're already hooked up, then this isn't your concern. But for the single-and-looking crowd, this puts a major damper on things!

This shelter in place stuff has put a major dent in the social life of singles without a doubt. Lots of frustrated people at this time. Hopefully things return to normal before too long! Not that we should rush things. We need to do this right.
