In many online situations, self-misrepresentation is totally harmless. Who cares if your Halo 3 avatar is taller than you are in real life? But in online dating, where the whole goal is to eventually meet other people in person, creating a false impression is a whole different deal. People do everything they can in their OkCupid profiles to make it the best representation of themselves. People are two inches shorter. The male heights on OkCupid very nearly follow the expected normal distribution — except the whole thing is shifted to the right of where it should be. You can see it better when we overlay the implied best fit below pardon the technical language: Almost universally guys like to add a couple inches to their height. You can also see a more subtle vanity at work:
I get the question a lot, in emails from you guys, our readers, who are confused or lost or questioning their sexuality, or just looking for a girl to crush on who might crush on her back.

As you know, there are a lot of unfair stereotypes about the LGBTQ community out there, and they can lead to stupid assumptions about someone being gay or not. So, is it any easier to tell if a woman is gay than to tell if a woman is straight?

By the time I stood up and realized he was 4 inches shorter, we were too in love to care. I never in a million years thought I would be in this situation, but when you find the right person, you just know. My question for you is: Should I prepare other people for the height difference? Sometimes I try to mention celebrity couples as examples, to give people an idea, but that only seems to make things worse.

Dear Captain Awkward, I am a 34 year old straight woman in an open marriage with a 39 year straight man. I have taken far more advantage of the openness of our marriage than my husband, at least until recently. I have had a string of long-term affairs and short-term flings. During the past 8 months I have basically been living with another man in a neighbouring town to the one I live in.

I have a drinking problem but it is not a problem I feel any need to resolve and I am drawn to men who are also drinkers like me. I can have a glass of wine in the morning and drink until I pass out in the afternoon and wake up when my lover comes home and go to the pub with him and start drinking again. This past Sunday my lover and I went to a country pub and I glanced in the dining room and saw my husband with a beautiful older woman, but not just any woman.

The answer he expected to find came from his evolutionary perspective: In the past, marriages were arranged, so men did not have to have any social skills to have a mate.
Quick Take College is often described as a time of sexual exploration , and for a lot of people that’s probably true — you’re on your own for your first time, the hormones are raging, and people are generally down to touch each other in some places.
