Meet/Eat/Love (MEL) #19
Online dating is sometimes like a deck of cards. You just never know which “card” is going to appear.
However, if you spend enough time on online dating apps, you’ll start to notice patterns and similar profile “types.”
Let’s dive right in and see which online profiles types, aka “cards” are the most common.
Here is a list of 8 common online profiles you’ll most likely come across:
He’s hot and he knows it. He has just the right types of pics to get you to swipe “yes.” Let’s see… there’s one of him looking hot on a motorbike. Of course, there’s a selfie of him smiling with his eyes or dimples and there’s another one of him staring just enough to the left so you can check out his chiseled jaw line. You get the picture.
The One Night Stand
He is a spinoff of The Player. The two main differences are that The One Night Stand will tell you right off the bat that he’s only looking for hookups. His pics are all topless or the ‘lying in bed’ selfie. At least he’s honest…?
He’s got triathlon pics, marathon pics, and don’t forget his mud run pics! He loves to be active and his pics show it. This guy can be fun if you share the same interests and are up for going on a 7am ‘jog’ as your first date.
Whether he’s a startup guru or corporate ladder climber, this guy has enough accolades and credentials to fill a tumblr page. He’s usually well put together in his pics and enjoying the finer things in life.
The World Traveler
He has exotic photos of an epic trek in Colombia, jumping out of a plane in Hawaii, or lounging poolside in Bali. Now, he’s in town for a few days on his around the world journey and wants to meet a ‘local’ to show him around. If you want to play tour guide, sure, but remember he won’t be here next week!
He’s got a girlfriend and will admit it. No, he’s not in an open relationship either. He will tell you he’s just looking for ‘fun.’ Yes, these men, unfortunately, do exist.
His profile looks too good to be true. It’s because when you reversed image search him, you will find out the pic actually belongs to a real-life model. Check out “MEL #16 – Eight Ways To Spot A Catfish” if you want to get more tips and not get fooled!
The Nice Guy
This the one who doesn’t look like he’s trying too hard in his pics. He has pics with his parents, his friends, and coworkers. He’s just an average guy, giving this whole online dating thing a try.
