"You must be taller then 5'10"," he protested. "I'm 5'10"!"
I looked down at my furious date and sighed. This is problem I've encountered more than once.

Whenever I'm told a man's height, I automatically recalculate their numbers.
For instance: a guy claims to be 5'11". Here's the thing: anyone who is 5'11" will just round up to an even 6'. So if a fella is saying he's 5'11", then he is actually shorter. Maybe 5'8", max.
I can understand the desire to stretch a reality while in the dating world. But one can't actually believe that fantasy.
It's like weight-gaining. "I didn't gain much over Pesach." Really? Get on the scale and let's see. "Oh." Uh-huh.
The human mind has an amazing ability to delude itself. But, sweetie, just because you say you are 5'10" doesn't mean you are.
