April Fools

[–]geo_gan7 points8 points  (4 children) | Copy

Is this real or April Fools? It’s not April 1st yet

[–]whiffofass 1 points [recovered]  (3 children) | Copy

This kind of app would be impossible to make that can tell if you are one inch taller or shorter and the way the article is written it's kind of obvious it's a joke. So don't worry bro, you can keep on frauding about your height

[–]geo_gan0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Don’t have to lie, last I measured I was over 6ft. And never measured for years so. Also as I said below, measuring by a picture standing back to any normal inside door would be easier for an app.

Big 6 foot guy huh

They're also doing weight verification for women by them standing on their phones

[–][deleted] 48 points49 points  (1 child) | Copy

If it breaks, you don’t get to use tinder.

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (0 children) | Copy

implying tinder would wilfully cut their female user base in half

[–]linkofinsanity19[S] 12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy

Next will be dick size verification.

I am a bona-fide 5'11.25". Lying about height is so ridiculously common, guys visibly shorter than me claim to be 6'. So screw it, I say I'm 6' tall. Granted, it's not that big a lie because I really am 6' with shoes. but girls often guess I am 6'1", due to every guy they ever knew lying about their height to them.

[–]omega_dawg9333 points34 points  (1 child) | Copy

tell them to remove their make-up... bc that's the biggest LIE of all.

[–]gregoire_ 1 points [recovered]  (6 children) | Copy

Weight verification would hurt the female audience. And really, who give a damn about the male audience? They’ll be there as long as there are women.

[–]ogkushinjapan14 points15 points  (2 children) | Copy

Yeah it’s like a nightclub charging extra cover for women. Why do you think girls usually do not have cover charge or even get bottles when in groups?

So long as there is a woman supply they’ll be male customers.

[–]gregoire_ 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

Exactly. It’s not women blowing thousands on bottles and it’s not women paying for tinder plus

[–]ogkushinjapan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Paying for tinder plus and getting a lay every week or two is a lot cheaper than blowing $50 on drinks tho. That’s why tinder can get away with this if it’s not an April fools joke.

[–]Terdmuffin0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Height verification only hurts if you lie about it and it doesn't seem mandatory.

[–]FanaticMind-4 points-3 points  (0 children) | Copy

This literally makes 0 sense.

[–]FiveStarTendieDinner7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

April fools joke or not don't even bother with tinder.

[–]2INNASKILLZ2K1822 points23 points  (4 children) | Copy

I'd like to see them do a 'no filter, no makeup' verification.

Fuck, I'm the top 14.5% for being over 6 foot. A lot of short motherfuckers around.

This is probably a joke, but it's still noteworthy how they take a stab at what guys are doing, and not the bitches.

[–]Fishey31 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

I'm actually interested in testing out what would happen to me, I'm about 6ft 4i, but weigh over 115kg (about 230 pounds?), also from Bangladesh of all places. I imagine women would either be okay with me or completely hate me lmao.

[–]2INNASKILLZ2K180 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

You can change that. Time to hit the gym?

[–]Fishey31 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yea, can't really keep myself motivated. I started playing sports with friends

[–]kooreh3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

You're wasting time unless you stop eating like a pig.

[–]Rapp56019 points10 points  (5 children) | Copy

Its definitely good for us tall guys, but the shorter ones... not so much

[–]CaptDeadlift8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

5'10 here and I didn't have that bad experiences regarding height only the occasional bitch asking my height (3-4 out of 100+ matches).

It did put me off when one of those girls asked me my height ( had good convo , got her number and then bam what is your height).

Considering in all other aspects I am above average and in some instances top 20-5% I'm ok with it.

Might be due to me being from eastern europe where the sexual liberation is still an ongoing process unlike in the west where women became so degenerated sluts.

Either way stopped using online dating apps since I am too busy to date ( fine with plating girls that come in to our service store and get their numbers).

Laughing in 6'4"

[–]BustaSlug5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

But now I wanna add to my one line bio:


Apparently guys are lying about their height. I’m not“

[–]UshankaDalek 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

Six inches, four feet? Neat.

[–]Terdmuffin3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Well people don't post their weights on their profile.

[–]TheTrenTrannyTrain3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Another gynocentric ideology.

[–]ThrowsSharksAtBirds2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Sounds like an April Fool's joke.

[–]wholewheatdirtydog2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

I screenshotted the tweet and put it on my snapchat with the caption "Where is the weight verification" and I got bombarded with messages from female acquaintances. Women are weird

[–]temerity182 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Why only females? There is roughly the same % of overweight men as there is women.

[–]wholewheatdirtydog1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Females were mainly negative some of my gym buddies had a good laugh and there were some white knight dudes too.

[–]Ryabemo2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

If you’re desirable as a dude then you seriously don’t need tinder. This is just gonna hurt most like 90% of the guys on tinder and they want more users, not less. However I find it weird that they target short men specifically but if they did this to women or the lgbtq community then a shit storm starts...

[–]geo_gan2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Anything that doesn’t directly attack the feminine imperative is allowed, and something that benefits it is especially allowed (by the feminine imperative)

[–]Ryabemo0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well said my blessed one

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Don’t care

[–]throwawaybpdnpd1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

If I’m 5’6” and can still pick up chicks on tinder, who the F cares haha

[–]On_The_Tweek_Again2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I’m 5’7 and kill it on there. I always tell them and they dgaf. Obviously being tall would be a huge advantage but I’m still killing it. Even been with girls that are like 5’11-6ft.

[–]throwawaybpdnpd1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Same here, been with taller chicks so many times I don’t give a shit anymore

[–]yung_gravy11 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think this is gonna get stuck in developmental limbo for a few years before being scrapped & one of those “hey what ever happened?” topics. Their proposed methodology is to have you take a pic by a government building or landmark & they’ll manually verify your height in relation.

Also I understand it’s close to april fools but there’s been stories circulating on this since the 29th.

[–]Razkolol0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

April fools joke for sure, you can photoshop the pic standing next to the building, calculations would be a mess too. If however they manage to calculate it properly I wouldn't mind since i'm 6'1"

[–]geo_gan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

They should have just said standing with back to a standard internal house door, would get a much better idea of height that way.

[–]Unlucky_Leader0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

1) it's an April fools day joke, I believe 2) height is not as adjustable to height. So unless it updates every day, there would no way to do weight.

[–]kayfab-4 points-3 points  (0 children) | Copy

getting better and better, and to say most women profile are accurate hahahaha.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
