Should I be upset he lied about his height?

I met my long distance boyfriend online where his height and age were listed in his profile. We’ve been dating long distance for almost 2 years now.

He’s asked my height many times and I’ve always told him I’m 5’5 and he’s always told he’s 5’9.

Anyways, so we met for the first time last month, and when I first saw him at the airport, my first thought was that he was short. I don’t mean this to be rude, but he was exactly the same height as me.

I was a little disappointed because he lied about it. I wouldn’t have minded had he told me later on, but it seems wrong that we’ve been talking for so long and he kept lying about it and saying he’s 5’9.

I haven’t brought it up to him because I don’t want to make him insecure about his height or anything, but…

Do I have a right to be upset about this?

  • Yes, because he did lie. However, its been 2 years so you might as well see how things go. he's obviously insecure about his height. I would definitely ask why he lied later and I would be looking to see if he has a pattern of lying.

  • That not a big deal

  • He should have been truthful about it.

  • when a guy tells you his height, AUTOMATICALLY take out 2 inches

  • Id b pissed

  • Even if everything else is perfect, his height is a deal breaker. Dump him and don't look back. There's no way he can make you happy if he's the same height as you

  • Yes, if he lied about this what else has he lied about?

  • My brother believed that he was always 5”10 but he recently checked his height properly and he’s 5”7 lol. It could be that he perceived himself to be taller
    But, If that’s not the case then I would maybe have a chat with him. It’s not okay that he lied, even if he was insecure, you would’ve found out eventually. Honesty is always better.

  • I got annoyed with a guy who lied to me about his height if someone can tell just one lie it makes me not trust them at all things between that guy and me didn't work out as I just couldn't believe he had lied to me I couldn't trust him at all

    • That’s what I’m wondering cause he’s super honest and blunt with me about everything, but he lied about something like this when he knew we would meet one day and I would find out his true height. But I also know he could’ve been insecure about it so I don't know.
