Guys Got Really Upset About Tinder's Height Verification Joke


Yesterday was April Fools, and perhaps one of the best announcements came from Tinder. They jokingly announced that they were introducing "height verification" to stop men adding a few extra inches on to their profile. 

Tinder dropped the news a little ahead of the ball on Friday, leading many to believe that the feature was actually real. 

"It’s come to our attention that most of you 5’10ers out there are actually 5’6," the statement read. "The charade must stop. This type of dishonestly doesn’t just hurt your matches — it hurts us, too."

They added that the feature was intended to "require everyone under 6’ to own up to their real height. We’re bringing truthfulness back into the world of online dating."
