The online world is no different than the physical world. It is populated by people who are fun to know; it is also full of vain and pompous people who are best avoided.
The difficulty is how to weed out the grain from the riff raff.
Here are three online personalities who must be kept at a distance, both online and offline.
The mama’s boy.
You may not be able to recognize him until you meet him. But when you do meet him you will be aghast. Your date will be more concerned about his parents than about you. The parents will be equally concerned about their little one, and will call up several times to find out how the evening is progressing. You will never be able to live up to his parent’s expectations. If you have an argument with your date, the parents will be involved in it and they will never support you.
The second type of person is obsessed with his/her appearance.
This kind of person is easy to detect. You can recognize this person from the photographs. If it is a man the photographs will show more muscles than the face. If it’s a woman, the photographs will show more curves than needed.
Such persons will focus only on your physical appearance. If you are not in good shape or if you are not very athletic, you will keep hearing about it. You will be valued for your physical appearance and your date may talk about your vital statistics, as if you are some type of a physical asset.
The smooth talker who is an expert in online dating.
This type of online personality is not easy to identify on a dating website. He will try hard to sell himself to you and he may not give you much time to talk about yourself. He will flirt with you and with every other good-looking person. He may not remember any of the details you told him about yourself.
If you are looking for some excitement and are prepared to take a risk, you can surely go out with a person like this. Remember that this person will not be ready for a long-term commitment to anyone or anything.
