In the world of online dating, a profile serves as a first impression. The profile is where photos are displayed, glimpses of personality peek through a few typed sentences and eligible singles can get noticed.
The 5 Types of Guys You'll Definitely Meet Online [Infographic]
By Top10BestDatingSites Staff
All single ladies want to find the right guy that helps them fall in love all over again. But, there are millions of people registered for online dating sites. Because there are so many people, you’ll meet more than one type of man during your online dating journey.
In fact, there are five main types of men you’ll meet online. One of them is bound to be the right guy for you. So, how do you handle the other four? We’ve got your answers below.
1. The Misleading Guy – Mr. Totally Fake
You click on this guy’s dating profile because his hobbies sound interesting. Or, maybe his pick-up line was cute and you were intrigued. But the moment you look at his photo, you realize something is amiss. Maybe it’s the lighting, but the photo looks a little dated.
Ladies, some guys’ profiles will not be completely honest. If you see a guy’s profile with their college photo in it, you can be assured that this guy is probably lying about other stuff than just his looks. Profiles with old high school or college photos, professional photo shoots, or even photos that are ten years old just don’t cut it.
For guys like this, ask for a real, current photo of them. Some may comply, and they might be a great man in person. But for those that don’t comply or those that lie about more than their photo, just move on to another guy.
2. The Discreet Guy – Mr. Can’t Come Out Yet
So you’re talking to this guy who seems so great online. His picture is current, you and he have lots of things in common, and he’s pretty fun on webcam or on the phone. But, you just can’t understand why he doesn’t want to meet for coffee? Each time you bring up a great date idea, he politely shoots it down.
Can’t understand why that is? Well, the problem is this discreet fellow just wants that—a discreet encounter. He’s not interested in making his dealing with you public. No, he wants to keep it nice and quiet because he truly wants to be with other men.
Discreet fellows are closet homosexual, and they want to keep it a secret. They’re not ready to come out of the closet just yet. So, they pretend to pursue heterosexual relationships to put on a front for other people. In reality, this is not a healthy relationship for either person.
Ladies, this man will likely not ever become a steady boyfriend. It’s best to just move onto another guy.
3. The Delusional Guy – Mr. High Expectations
You see the photo of a really nice looking man, so you click on his profile to learn more. You find out he appears decent and decide to message him. The conversation is comfortable and he seems interesting—until it shifts directions suddenly and he says he only dates sexy women. Or, he’s so handsome he could have any woman he wants.
What is that supposed to mean? Girls, meet the delusional dater. Everything he wants is based on things he can only get in his dreams. If he says he’s only interested in very hot women, women with money, or that he can pass on you since he can get any woman he wants, he’s totally dreaming.
Delusional daters can be hard to date, especially if they consistently have high expectations of others. You’ll find it difficult to please them and they may criticize you for not living up to their expectations. If you don’t want the stress of dealing with this guy, just pass him up.
4. The One Night Guy – Mr. Once in Your Life
All ladies know this guy in real life. But can you define him online? This Casanova sweet talks you, adores you, says all the wonderful things about you, and then, after you give yourself to him. He’s gone.
You won’t ever hear from this fellow again. You may want to check your dating profile, because he’s probably removed you from his friends list and blocked you. These type of guys are only interested in one thing: Sex. They’re just in it for the lay.
It may be hard to define if this guy is being sincere or just eager to get into your pants. To prevent this, don’t give it up right away! If he keeps pressing for sex, despite how sweet his is, don’t give into him. Eventually, if he’s not interested, he’ll stop bothering you.
5. The Perfect Guy – Mr. Right
So after all those other crazy profiles, you’ve made it to this one. His photo is nice, his profile information checks out, and so you message him. You two talk and you click! You share much of the same interests and hobbies as he does. He makes you feel special with sincere, nice comments. He’s ready to meet up when you are, and you go out on dates.
You don’t discover any hidden surprises from him. He’s not married or still ‘in the closet’. He doesn’t have any outrages expectations, and he called you back from the first date you two had, and still wants to see you and only you!
Congratulations! You’ve met Mr. Right!
He matches you in every way and you two continue to grow as a couple. Things only get better from here. Now you’re secure and happy in your new relationship, and Mr. Right makes you feel that love does exist online.
Online dating is a journey, so expect to meet up with one or more of the different misters listed above. But if you look in all the right places, you’re bound to come across Mr. Right. Ready to find the right guy for you? Check out the Top 10 Best Dating Sites to meet your match.
