Dating a man who is shorter
One of the best tips that I ever heard about online dating was from the founder of OK Cupid, who said to “accentuate the weird thing about you,” whether it’s your big nose or your strange ears, whether it’s your peculiar obsession with mac & cheese or desire to hang upside down from the ceiling every evening before bed.Whatever it is, someone out there will love it and that’s the person you want to be with, not the person who was tricked into going out with you on the pretense that you were tall, dark, and handsomely rich.

Pictures can indeed say 1000 words, that’s why I always swipe left on certain ones. To me they indicate that the person doesn’t really care about life, as in, the life of other creatures on the planet; the person thinks that by offering the pic, he’s proving his ability to provide, in a very subconscious caveman sort of way; and that basically, he’s a basic bro.
