Now, I am actually not really saying DON’T DATE ONLINE. That is how the majority of people meet these days. Just some of these uncomfortable circumstances can be avoided if you don’t get sloppy about who you are talking to!
1. The Date You Didn’t Want
Oops! You got a name and a number confused with your online dating prospects. Think you are talking to one guy but actually to another! Plan B guy knocks at the door. Do yourselves both a favor, end the date before it begins! Unless you enjoy pure awkwardness!
2. The Super Hot Guy Trying to Get Laid
Okay so you open the door and this guy stands before you who is just drop dead gorgeous. You are like OMG! Try to compose yourself as he not just devastatingly handsome, but he is charming too. He doesn’t wait very long to make his move, your brain, and common sense is in the off mode and it’s been so long you forgot!
After the deed is done, you hear the famous line “I’ll call ya”. And he disappears off into the night never to be seen again! Unless you want to feel duped and stupid – JUST SAY NO!
3. The Creepy Texter
Admit it, you were lazy and only barely checked out his profile. One cute profile picture along with a message that said”Hi beautiful, I would love to get know you “was enough to impulsively send him your number
He sounds really nice and then all of a sudden his texts turn weird. He is all about conspiracy theory, survivalists, hiding in bushes, thinks he has a problem with werewolves in his trees.
The messages get more and more bizarre and at this point, you are freaked out. After actually reading his profile, you consider either changing states or countries! READ PROFILES before you give out your phone number. It’s way too easy for weirdos to track you down these days!
4. The Constant Texter
So you did read his profile this time, saw pictures of him with his arm around his sister, and he seems so sweet and normal. You text back and forth for a bit, he is very attentive and you are flattered! You are getting tired and politely say good night. However, the incoming text ring keeps going off incessantly!.
By the time you wake up in the morning, your phone is completely dead and when you turn it back on you have a myriad of essays texted to you that make “War and Peace” look like a short story!
As you start skimming through pages and pages of messages with way too many “lol’s, rows of emoticons, question marks as to why you are not replying, links to his facebook and twitter followed by links to every member of his families facebook and twitter, you completely weirded out.
And just when you think it’s safe to continue charging your phone – another text comes through saying “Are you awake?”. DO NOT RESPOND AND CHANGE YOUR NUMBER!
5. The Reminder of your Ex
Okay, how weird right? You are trying to get over your ex. Out there, forcing yourself to date and then you happen to meet a guy online that kinda looks and sounds just like him. Just REMEMBER THAT EX did not work out so well and the universe can work in very strange ways!
You will often keep attracting that same kind of guy that broke your heart unless you change something within you. Stay away from anybody who is going to trigger and remind you of any kind of pain from the past. Even if he is a nice guy, you are going to be constantly pissed off at him because your brain is going to confuse some little thing he does, with some catastrophic painful incident thrown at you by ex-jerk off!
6. The Guy who Wants Photos of the Goods in Advance
Need I say more? And nothing classier than one who sends you photos of his goods before you meet him. The odds of him turning out to be the man of your dreams, probably not so good!
7. The Guy Who Never Asks You any Questions about Yourself
Ever had that experience? The guy who is so literally elated and excited to talk about himself and every trophy he has won since the boy scouts! Later, you recall the conversation and wonder – does this idiot even know my name?
8. The Guy Who Tells you Nothing about Himself
Ding! Cheating on his wife or girlfriend! Patrolling the internet for women he can put on a show on for but will run as soon as he has to prove anything. So much fun being on a date with somebody angrily glaring at their cell phone while constantly texting! When he eventually excuses himself to take a call, grab all the free bread and quickly exit!
9. The Guy who Gives you that Bad Feeling in your Stomach
You have absolutely no idea why. His manners are impeccable. He is a perfect gentleman. He seems sweet and kind. He even owns his own cat rescue organization! But something about him is giving you the jitters. What is it, does he remind you of a young handsome Ted Bundy? Don’t even waste your time playing private investigator! You know what they say, always trust your gut instinct. It truly is there for a reason!
10. The Guy that is Just Not into You
Anything more humiliating for a female? You’ve been texting this guy for weeks and in fact, you think you are better looking than he is! Then you see a look of unmistakable disappointment in his face when he sees you.
However, he is either a nice guy and will politely continue the date or suddenly get a text that his mom has been rushed to the hospital! This is not something that is easy on the self-esteem. Sometimes you just can’t compete with guys who are more into themselves and may not really want to!
GOOD LUCK IN THE ONLINE DATING WORLD – AS WE ALL KNOW IT CAN BE BRUTAL!
