We’ve all heard the stories about people who were doing great in life until they found some lunatic online who made their life a living hell-or ended it. While most of the Internet is pretty safe for guys who are looking to hook up, there are still some profiles on dating sites that should raise eyebrows. There are definitely some warning signs that a girl isn’t all right in the head, and you should learn to spot them before contacting her back.
Her profile says “No Crazy Guys!”
There’s something like a self-fulfilling prophecy when it comes to spotting some loony tunes online. You have to actually know what you’re looking for, or these girls can sneak up out of nowhere. As terrifying as that sounds, there are some clear indicators that the girl you’re going after is Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. One of them is saying “No Crazy Guys!” somewhere in her online profile.
She doesn’t actually mean “crazy.” We use that word when we mean “someone is doing something I don’t understand.” If this girl thinks she needs to screen for that right away, it means that she hasn’t been able to understand most of the guys she’s dated, which is bad news for you.
She Puts Her Real Info Online
“Stay away from such ladies”
There are some things that you just don’t do, and anyone with any sense in their head knows that’s the truth. One of those things is putting your real information online. Girls are naturally shyer about that kind of thing, usually not even using their real names because they’re worried they’ll get found out by some kind of predator. If a girl is totally cool with giving out her real name, her location, or her phone number on her profile or in the first message, stay away! This girl is either an escort or she’s absolutely nuts.
She Uses CAPS LOCK and Way Too Many Exclamation Points!!!!!!!!!
“Is she using caps locks in every message?”
The things a girl says mean a lot about her mental state, sure. But the way she says it can be just as effective at telling the normal, sane girls from the ones that should be headed to the funny farm. Any girl who uses a lot of caps lock in her profile is basically screaming, and that’s not the kind of thing you want in a girl who’s trying to get a date. The same thing goes for using a lot of exclamation points. Another red flag is terrible spelling and grammar, because that’s a sign that she either can’t read and write, is a scam, or just doesn’t care what people think of her.
The Crazy Girl might be unfortunate, but she’s also pretty easy to spot when you know the warning signs. Learn how to see those signs before you commit, and you’ll be able to spend your time on other, more stable girls instead of getting drinks thrown in your face (or your house lit on fire).
