So at my expense, save yourself the wasted time and effort, and pay close attention to the most common (and most serious) online dating red flags. Now I’m a big advocate of not wasting time on losers or people who do you no good.
There is absolutely no reason in the world that a guy you are talking to online should be giving you a play by play, sorting out the pots and pans of their previous relationship (she was boring / he was unmotivated, he cheated / she was lazy etc). Cutting ties to those who cause you hurt is best done sooner rather than later.
Even as a dating site employee, I can admit that more than once I’ve been disappointed after meeting someone who turned out to drink and womanize like Tyrion Lannister. As someone who sees the ins and outs of online dating on the daily, believe me when I say, not all dates have been or will be bad.

Sh'reen Morrison had been on an online dating site for only a few weeks before she realized that something was seriously wrong with the man who had been actively pursuing her by text message and email.They'd hit it off right away, and he said he lived just outside of Phoenix, which seemed relatively proximate to a woman in remote Yuma, Ariz. First, he was traveling through India with his daughter.
By then, Morrison knew she was dealing with a scammer.
