You got another message. then another, then another, and then he wants to meet you right away. Here are the signs that Mr.Online is only looking out for #1. Never ignore these 5 worrisome red flags when online dating.
No Social Media Presence
Be careful when sharing social profiles when you begin online dating. If most of your posts are public your new texting pal could easily find out too much about you. With that said, it still pays to snoop. And that is where the trouble begins.
If your new prospect is a ghost on social profiles, take heed. He might either be completely disconnected from social pages out of choice or because he has a made up name and profile. Creepy. Find out the difference and ask him why he’s not active. If the answer seems suspicious, delete. In this day and age everybody has at least one social page (check LinkedIn too.) So, if he’s not putting himself out there other than on POF, it could be because he’s married, or he’s hiding something deep.

Texts Turn to Sexting. Everytime.
Unless you’re the one doing all the sexting suggestions, step back from the man who wants in, especially before he even takes you out. He is in this for the booty call only and you can’t expect to find love from a man that can’t respect you enough to wine and dine you first.
He Calls You Cutsey Nicknames
No, I’m not your baby. Or your sweetie. Or your bae. Whatever that is. If he’s calling you these pet names it’s because he’s afraid of forgetting your real one, and another girl just got the same message. Who gets to win this prize? The one who answered him back first. Let her have him and send this player packing.
No Job, No Details
He lives at home. You’re still not sure what he does for a living. And every personal question lends itself back to you. Because it’s “complicated.” Nobody wants to question basic things such as an occupation. Beware he may be in some shady business, and his business might just be preying on you. Don’t ask why. Just don’t ignore this worrisome red flag while you’re online dating.
You Never Meet
Because, he is married. And while you are busy getting the butterflies with every single form of contact from him, it will never amount to anything. He won’t make plans to see you and he has zero intention of turning this into anything more than it really is. An ego boost, for him. Get rid of the guy who can’t make that first date.
