Signs of an online dating player
There's no way of guaranteeing that you'll avoid the worst of what dating apps have to offer, but there are a few things that are the opposite of red flags — green flags?
"Be wary of the man who only talks about himself." It's so easy to do just that in a dating profile — after all, that's what they ask you to do, pretty much: What's your job? That said, be wary if he doesn't say anything about himself — he could be deflecting his own weirdness by shouting out the ones in his life who are less weird, aka other people. "You won’t be surprised by who shows up if the photo was recent." That is a bit of an if — it is, of course, possible that some guy will post snaps from 10 years ago. But if a man mixes a full-body shot in with the pictures of him with his dog and, like, hiking the Appalachian Trail, then he's not hiding who he is, says Ward.
When scrolling through a guy's profile, be on the lookout for the ones who talk about their dreams.
