The dating site Tinder – yeah, “dating” site – is cracking down on the site’s dirty filthy liars. In other words, men. Tinder announced it will now obtain “height verification,” because apparently that’s the size men always lie about.
Sorry fellas, dating app Tinder is introducing a new tool that will verify a user’s height. It’s the “thing you never asked for, but definitely always wanted — Tinder Height Verification,” the company said.
Of course there is a good amount of lying and embellishment on Tinder and dating apps to begin with and one of the biggest lies men tell is that they are over 6-feet tall. No more, Tinder says.
“It’s come to our attention that most of you 5-foot-10ers out there are actually 5-foot-6. The charade must stop,” the company said on their blog.
Kyle actually brought this story to my attention, and asked the same question I had. “So, is there going to be a weight verification for the women?”
