Dating service for geeks
A collection of bizarre and hilarious dating profile pictures has been collated by and they couldn't be further from the stereotype of the dashing hero straight from the pages of Dostoyevsky or the blonde supermodel you might hope to meet.
One woman gave a subtle hint to her dates that she's not to be messed with by brandishing an axe in her profile photo, while another will at least attract people with a keen interest in angling by lying alongside a giant fish.
The thing is, as with many other masculine insecurities, this is predominantly in our heads. Worse, I’m the shortest of all my friends who range from 5’1o” on the short side, to 6’7″ on the tall side.
The problem with this is that the sudden color change – from white to brown to blue – creates a visual interruption.
The eye doesn’t travel smoothly down your profile; the sudden change cuts you in half, truncating your torso and skewing your proportions.
If you’re not 6 feet tall or taller, then you may as well just resign yourself to a sexless life of Napoleon jokes.
Of course, short is relative; what we consider “average” height varies depending on geographic locale and someone who’s 5’6″ would consider someone who’s 5’9″ (the average for American men) to be lucky.
