While you can, and probably will, run into all kinds of characters while online dating, there are some out there that are especially bad.
Whether you’re looking for something more serious or more casual, there is usually a consensus on which types of profiles are the absolute worst to come across. And while you definitely get better at spotting these dreadful daters, so many can slip through in the beginning.
Many online daters that get bombarded by the worst of the worst swipers start to wonder why their profile isn’t attracting better matches. They worry what it is about themselves that draws in all the wrong people.
It’s not you, it’s your profile that’s turning away your perfect matches and ushering in the bad ones!
If you want your profile to start catching the attention of the matches you actually want, work with one of our dating profile experts and receive a flawless profile that’s proven to get you the dates you deserve!
If you don’t want to experience your own dating horror stories, avoid these profiles at all costs.
Last seen: putting the bare minimum of effort into their profile and adding in almost nothing but overused clichés.
While the basic dater likely doesn’t pose a danger to you, they are in danger of losing the last spec of their own personality. The profiles of these daters will typically include very general details that do not give any insight into their true self.
If you find yourself reading about someone that “loves to eat” or “enjoys staying in and watching Netflix” you may have stumbled across the basic.
Proceed with caution, or they may bore you to death.
Last seen: adding another selfie to their profile and writing in “you’d be lucky to get a chance with me”.
Unfortunately, these daters are all over the online dating platforms. Any platform is a stage, right?
These profiles will be filled with the specific details of their extravagant life that make them way out of your league. You’ll read about their car, their money, their body, or their lifestyle, whatever it is that makes them the best.
If it doesn’t sound enjoyable for you to be the mirror that reiterates their perfect image, you might want to swipe left on the narcissist.
The ‘nice guy/girl’
Last seen: expressing contempt at those that didn’t reward them for their momentary ‘kindness’ and feeling entitled to attention.
A more modern phenomenon, the ‘nice guy/girl’s shower you with unrequested compliments, help, or gifts seemingly out of the goodness of their hearts. Then, in moments of courage, announce what they want from you.
If unrequited, these daters will feel used for their ‘kindness’ and turn on you with anger that makes it very clear they were not all that nice to begin with.
Be warned, as their anger for you grows with every subsequent person you date that is not them… the ‘nice guy/girl’.
And as dreamy as these potential dates sound, if you want to avoid running into swipers like these, you’ll need to enhance your profile to attract the right matches.
Our team of professionals does the work for you so you can skip straight to perfect dates and perfect matches!
Why deal with these online dating disasters, when you can work with us!
Last seen: practicing the art of negging and lying about the amount of ‘game’ they have.
The alpha, likely male, will have a profile filled with aggressive absolute statements about how the world works. There may also be areas where they describe their high standards for their matches, rating their value as a sum of physical traits.
You might even find them comparing dating to the animal kingdom. They describe their take on dating in a way that strangely sounds like how an owner would train their dog.
So, if you come across statements of what real men do and it sounds like a ridiculous comedy bit, run, don’t walk away from the alpha.
Last seen: being overly affectionate to strangers and trying to ‘smooth-talk’ their way into getting what they want.
Potentially harder to spot, these creepy daters may just give you a weird feeling when reading their profiles, like something is slightly off. These are the times your gut can really save you.
If you come across a profile that gives off a weird vibe and the phrasing just sounds kind of awkward or maybe even a bit gross, do not interact.
There may be big signs like their age being a lot higher than yours and they still reach out to you, or them trying to turn the situation romantic too early on.
If things aren’t quite right or they get too pushy, cut off all communication, block, and stay away from the creep.
Last seen: searching for multiple photos of the same attractive model for their profile and acting suspicious.
A profile that has been around since the beginning of online dating, the catfish attempts to fool you into a relationship or out of your money. These scamming swipers are crafty liars and have perfected the art of keeping their victims on the line.
You might see a barely-filled-out bio, way-too-hot photos, or you might not notice anything odd until after a couple failed attempts to actually meet up or video chat.
If you find a profile that has model-level attractive photos and they want to know more and more about you, cut ties with the catfish.
