A groom who lied about his height on dating profiles was the subject of the most recent Vows column. At first, Scott Birnbaum got little joy from online dating. Then he started treating it like a math problem, presenting different personalities across multiple accounts and stretching his height from 5’5” (actual) to 5’8”. He met his future wife Tracy Podell – who is 4’11” — on OkCupid. She realized his deception immediately, but having lied about her age for various acting jobs, she didn’t see a problem.

Thank God my husband lied about his age on eHarmony or we never would have met.

If someone lies to you before you have even met, what are the chances that he or she will be honest during the course of your relationship?

Preeti ReddyAn obvious double standard exists here. If a man rules out a woman based solely on a specific physical attribute, he is called superficial and accused of sexism. When a woman limits her search criteria to a man who is at least nine inches taller than she is, it is casually dismissed as a personal preference.

M.My husband is four inches shorter than I am. When we first met, he was balding with a comb-over and 30 pounds overweight. He was the most fascinating man I’d ever met. He still is.

BellaHim and every other guy online, and I guess I don’t get why. Unless you embellish just very slightly, it’s not like you won’t get found out. Back in the day I would have 5’8” guys claim they were six feet. As a 5’11” woman I’m going to notice, bro.

Pernilla PetersonMy experience has been that men lie about their height and women lie about their weight.

Susan L. HarttWe tend to favor height because, whether consciously or not, we associate height with power and strength. Doesn’t make it right, but it does make it the reality.I went on a date with a man who said he was in his early 50s, which his photo portrayed. When he arrived, it was evident he was a lot older. Seventy-two, in fact. We had a nice lunch and a good chat, but let’s just say he wasn’t the one.

Reminds me of Aziz Ansari’s observation on how our culture is so hung up on choice. We always think we can do better and end up never satisfied.
