4 Personas That Deserve A Place In The Online Dating Hall Of Shame

When it comes to online dating, there are a few personalities that you’re bound to encounter at some point in time. Traditional dating has its typical offenders like “The Jerk,” or “The Cheapskate,” but online dating? Yeah, it’s like a whole different universe. The Internet gives people a lot of courage, and most of this courage is used in ways that is not so admirable.
We’re talking liars, cheaters, thieves, and any other type of loser you can think of. So, to help you avoid these people, we’ve made a list of the top four types of online daters who made it into our hall of shame. Check them out below!

1. The Cheater

Online dating sites are chalk full of cheaters and infidels. You know, those people who are already in a relationship, or worse—married! You’d be shocked at how many married people go behind their spouse’s back and create dating profiles just to get a little action on the side. So, to avoid these scumbags, you should always do a little research before you get too involved with someone you met online. Yahoo! recommends using Instant Checkmate, a site that gives you access to public records. By using this tool, you’ll be able to spot (and avoid) those low life online daters who are actually married.

2. The Photoshop Expert

If you’re familiar with Photoshop, then you know it’s a truly awesome tool. You can edit and enhance photos in million different ways. But some people, online daters especially, take Photoshop to extremes, and their photos end up looking nothing like them. They smooth out all their blemishes, enhance their eye color, whiten their teeth, and some even adjust their body shape all for the sake of looking like a supermodel in their photos. The problem is that when these people actually meet someone in person, there’s a good chance their date won’t even recognize them! So, folks, if your online love interest looks oddly perfect in every picture, you might want to take that as a red flag.

3. The Liar

We’ve all been guilty of embellishing the truth from time to time, and hey, there’s no harm in it. Unfortunately, many online daters embellish to the point where everything they say is an outright lie. Yes, there is a difference. If a sales assistant changes claims to be a sales coordinator, that’s not embellishing because assisting and coordinating are pretty similar. However, if that same sales assistant decides to tell the online dating world that they are a Regional Sales Manager, well, that’s just a big fat lie. So, you have to be careful when you meet people on dating sites because you never know how many zeros they added to their income, or how many years they took off their age. Just make sure to ask the right questions in order to get the whole truth.

4. The Catfish

The Catfish makes the liar look like an angel. Why? Well because Catfish don’t just lie about certain aspects of their life; they make up an entirely new life altogether. Yup, sadly many people thrive on deception, and the online dating scene is full of catfish. Most catfish operate under a fake identity that is so well-crafted that their victims never suspect a thing. Fortunately, there are a few telltale signs that you can look for in order to spot one of these creeps. Honestly, if that attractive person you’ve been chatting with is really a fat old man sitting in his parent’s basement, you sure as hell want to find out sooner rather than later.
So folks, have YOU ever encountered one of these people online? Let us know in the comments!
