Swiping left and right until you give yourself borderline carpal tunnel, eventually matching with a few guys you think might be worth meeting IRL—only to find out during the first date that you have wasted your time on a total dud.
Between Bumble, Tinder, Coffee Meets Bagel, Hinge and whatever else is the romantic app du jour, scanning through profile after profile can sometimes seem daunting.
Names like those clearly indicate that these users are looking for a hot hookup, so unless you’re down for a fling, you might want to click the x.
OK, so someone has caught your eye with a swoon-worthy profile pic and a super cute username, so now you’re actually taking the time to read their bio.
“It’s a red flag because it’s a sign of laziness,” she says.

I started laughing when I read it and immediately knew my instincts were correct-SCAMMER! It’s really hard to find a person that is interested in a possible long term relationship and not just a one night stand. My late Mom was from Kansas and My dad was from, West Africa cos he was brought up from Nigeria … my Late mother and father were married for 43 years and I think that is truly wonderful thing and I want to let you Know that i relocate from Elsmore , Kansas to Powell St, San Francisco anytime from now which I let you know that i just got a 1story 10 home yesterday .
- I will post his scam email here so hopefully when other 13 year olds or disgusting old crooks sitting in a room in Nigeria try to pull this crap on another person , they will know they are being set up by one of the oldest scams in the book. they both meet in Rome , ITALY , where i grow up and they instilled many wonderful values in me. I want this also very much..although my life is full of love , there is the most important element of life that is missing from mine.life person must be sincere, honest, understanding and family oriented.
So as we enter into cuffing season, get ready to swipe in search of that special someone—but keep these red flags in mind.
