Single woman warns you should NEVER date ‘5ft 10ins guys’… and they’re just one of the groups she steers clear of

WHETHER we own up to it or not, most of us have a type we can't help but swipe right on on dating apps.

But for Australian radio presenter Jana Hocking, there's several groups of men single women should NEVER date – and it includes guys who insist they're 5'10".

In a personal essay for News.Au, Jana explained how she's "been around the trap a few times" on Tinder and Bumble.

From those who lie about their age to your typical "alpha males", the savvy singleton has put together a list of nine groups of men to avoid – and we're warning you now, it might just put you off online dating for good.

1. The 5ft 10" guy

First up are the guys who say they're 5ft 10" in their bios – but are actually much shorter.

Shedding light on this type of dater, Jana wrote: "He knows he can’t get away with being 6ft but he also knows many of you won’t swipe right if he admits he’s 5ft 8. Shame on all of us!"

2. The guy who says he's 45

Aware that admitting they're over 50 will get them less matches, Jana says many blokes claim they're 45 to bag more dates because of other user's age preferences.

Speaking from experience, Jana says she recently went on a date with a man who said he was 45, 6ft tall, worked in finance, had no kids and was Scottish.

But when she met him in person, Jana wrote: "He was rather short, admitted after a very strong whisky that he was 52-years-old and that he had two kids."

Blokes! Are we women making you constantly go ‘WTF?!’ Well send me your tricky questions because (thanks to the 94% of you last week who said “Heck Yes”) Tuesday Q&A is back baby!! ? Head to my stories for details. I’ll answer them tonight at 7pm with a nice vino?

3. 'Alpha' Males

According to Jana, an easy way to spot an obnoxious "alpha male" is by taking a close look at their photos.

If they've shared a gym selfie or are "holding a giant dead fish", then Jana says you're better off swiping left.

Highlighting what a big red flag it is, she wrote: "Just like a caveman who hunts a wilder beast and brings it back to the cave to impress his lady friend, this guy is trying to show he is as masculine as they come."

4. The angry guy looking for a rebound

Look – no one wants to be the person anyone rebounds with when they're reeling from a break up.

To save yourself some serious heartbreak, Jana recommends looking out for statements such as "If you can’t handle me at my worst you don’t deserve me at my best", "studied at the school of hard knock" and "you probably won’t message me back because I’m a nice guy" written in their bios.

5. The 'entrepreneur'

Although not every guy on Tinder who says they're an "entrepreneur" is actually "jobless", Jana says it's a red flag and something that's worth clarifying early on.

6. The guy who just posts selfies

You can't exactly blame anyone for posting their best selfie on their dating profile.

But if they're only posting selfies, Jana claims they might not actually look like that in real life… or have much of a social life.

"The more extreme version of this category involves the person looking slightly like a serial killer, with extreme close-up photos, no smiling and the impression that they have the personality of a dead fish," she added.

7. The guy who only posts group pictures

According to Tinder's Most Swiped Right Man, users only spent 0.5 seconds looking at your profile before swiping – so it's important to make an impression.

In other words, you don't want to spend ages studying group photos to work out which one he is.

She added: "You will honestly be hoping he is the hot one. He won’t be."

8. The guy who poses with a puppy or a baby

Referencing Sex and the City's "men are like taxis" episode, Jana says men who their "green light" switched on – i.e. want a relationship – will post pictures of themselves holding a baby, a puppy or their niece or nephew.

She explained: "Anyone holding a baby (niece/nephew) in their photos is basically saying ‘Look! This could be us!’"

9. The guy who is posing with the same girl in every shot

On first impression, this might appear as though he wants you to know that. he is emotionally mature enough to have girls who are friends.

But according to Jana: "This is the couple looking to get frisky with a third person. Cheeky rascals."

Last month, the savvy singleton urged women to NEVER date men in their thirties because they're statistically likely to be ones who won't commit.

For more relationship stories, this bride-to-be who proudly showed off engagement ring was slammed for ‘Spongebob Squarepants’ nails.

And this bride was slammed as ‘rude’ after putting her wedding guests into A, B & C categories of importance.

Plus this bloke was left stunned when his wife divorced him for leaving dirty plates by the sink.
