I'm building a dating website and one of the search filters is for a person's height. A user will be able to select a minimum and/or maximum height. By default these will be set to "Any".
Since the site's target audience is the UK, I need to display the values in feet and inches. I need to make the process as quick and easy as possible.
The best solution I can think of is having two dropdowns (one for min and one for max). These will contain a list of all the possible values, e.g:
- 5ft 4in
- 5ft 5in
- 5ft 6in
In all there are likely to be around 30+ values in each dropdown. That's quite a lot to scroll through.
Is there a more intuitive way to do this? I was thinking of using a slider, but the filtering section will be quite narrow and I don't think I can get all the values on a slider.
