Red flags list on dating for women
Low effort here suggests low effort in real life." Along with the amount of effort he put into his profile, look for signs that his personality is shining through. Can you tell right away that he's super passionate about traveling or playing guitar? Venessa Marie Perry, founder and chief relationship strategist at Love Write, told me, "If a guy has a profile that communicates who he is and what he's looking for with a certain amount of humor, he's more likely to be engaging and fun on a date." So skip over the guys with the generic answers and look for the guys who seriously stand out.In addition to seeing his personality shine through in his profile, a picture is worth a thousand words.She said, "Pictures that are primarily of possessions, selfies, half-naked, [flexing] in the mirror are all large indications that this person is not capable of having a meaningful relationship currently, or is definitely choosing not to, by only presenting a very superficial front." A good way to know that a guy is looking for a relationship is if he actually knows what he's looking for.A guy who doesn't just talk about himself in his profile, but also mentions what he's looking for, has given some thought to the kind of relationship he'd like to have, even if he doesn't come right out and say he wants a relationship.Perry told me that photos of him shirtless and showing off his abs can be warning signs."A man without a shirt or a woman with a bikini typically indicate that the person is more likely to want a fling, or sex, than a long term relationship," she said.
Please keep your dating game, your flirtatious eye contact, and your Axe body spray off of Linked In.But if a guy says he wants someone smart who can be his best friend, you can bet he's put some thought into what kind of person he wants and is looking for something more long-term." Just like a man who is clear about his expectations in a relationship, a man who mentions things that are important to him, like his career and family, is showing you right away that he's either ready to settle down or sees that in his future.He wants you to know from the get-go what's important in his life, and that if you hit it off, you'll be fitting in amongst those other priorities as well.So if the words that pop into your head when you see a guy's photo are words like "intimidating," "serious," or "angry," swipe left.
Perry said that photos that show the types of activities they enjoy doing, or feature them engaging with friends and family can be signs he's boyfriend material — just be sure that the activities he enjoys aren't mean-spirited and petty.
And most people on Linked In — and at work — want to be judged first as professionals.
