Red Flags Your Online Date May Be Married
Online dating, just like any other technological advancement in the world, is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it helps to unite people from different corners of the world, so does it helps to keep long-distance relationships afloat.
On the other hand, however, it can be a disruptive tool once it appears in wrong hands. Unfortunately, married womanizers resort to mail-order bride and other online dating sites to date women from abroad to avoid unpleasant consequences in their hometowns.
But is it anyhow possible to spot a liar, a married man who pretends to be single and promises you the moon and the stars? It is, and here are five red flags that will give a womanizer away.
#1. He has a blurred/dark photo as a profile picture
Does he refuse to send you a selfie in a private chat even though he doesn’t have a profile pic or has an edited one? That’s the first thing you have to pay attention to.
Some men are reluctant to reveal their real faces just because they are afraid of being caught by someone, e.g., their wives.
#2. He doesn’t want to share his contacts with you
If the only thing that he gives you is his mobile phone number, watch your back. Perhaps, he doesn’t want to give you the landline phone number as he is cautious – his wife might pick it any time and expose the fling.
Also, he won’t unveil to you his actual place of living. It is likely he will name a different location or will try to dodge this topic, and that’s when your suspicion should turn on.
#3. He asks you not to disturb him at night or the weekends
Guess why? Yes, he is with his family at that time. Married men with malicious intentions usually talk with ladies via an online dating site either at work or on the go, but never when their family members are around.
#4. He doesn’t hurry to meet you in person
A married womanizer will spend his time getting to know you better, making you trust him more, planning your potential meeting in a safe and remote place. He will do all that to make sure he won’t be captured at one point.
#5. He avoids telling about himself
Ask him a set of simple questions:
- How many women have you dated before?
- Have you been married?
- Do you have children?
- Would you like to have children?
- What would you do if your partner cheated on you?
- Have you ever cheated on your exes?
And so on.
This will get him a little messed up so he will try his best to change the topic and make you talk about something else. For example, he might start waving it away with a joke.
Remember, that such a man wants to use you and he will meet you one day after communicating online. So pay attention to the signs and be careful.
