We posted the profile in a city far from us where there were a lot of women with strict height requirements on their profiles. My friend agreed to have his picture used on it, he's considered pretty average looking, nothing special, but not ugly. Anyway, we had to do some very creative photography and photoshopping to make it look as if he was truly 7 ft. Had some people kneel down in pics with him, but cut the part off where you could see they were kneeling.
As for the profile, we wanted to make this guy have traits that would normally be very undesirable to many women. The headline got a lot of attention, we put "Tallest guy on POF!
Yah I used to play basketball but my cureer ended when i dropped out of high school sofmore year. I like to do a lot of fun stuff i don't have a job so i got lots of free time to persue my hobies. I'm hopin to find a girl who will take care of those needs for me. My main hobies are smoking weed and playing xbox I just got done serving an 8 years sintince in prison and i want to get my life back on track and stay away from the po-po's.
Message me ladys i want to get 2 know u! Now, any reasonable person would think "Who the hell would respond to that ad? When we started chatting with some of them through IM, that's when things got real interesting. Here are some interesting tidbits from our chats? Can we meet tonight? So is it OK that i smoke weed? It's no big deal, I mean everyone has their vices right? Don't worry about it, I'll come pick you up and pay for the date too.
I know you're thinking, this all sounds crazy or too outlandish, but none of this is made up or is a joke. My friend and I just sat there going The only total dealbreaker during our chats that sent every woman running for the hills was when we told them that "Jon" was a registered sex offender who was in prison for fondling an 11 year old girl. We took the profile down as soon as our experiment ended. Anyone think a 5'10" guy with a profile like this would get many replies?
