12 Dating Profile Red Flags

By

Once upon a time, the notion of finding a romantic partner online was a subject of ridicule or embarrassment, but it's increasingly becoming a norm. According to a 2017 study, nearly 40 percent of heterosexual couples and more than 60 percent of same-sex couples met online. 

But that's not to say meeting people on datings sites and apps is any easier than the old school way of finding a partner. How much can you really learn about a person from a couple pictures and a short bio? A lot, it turns out. We trawled reddit to find some of the common dating profile red flags that signal you should probably swipe left.

1. They "don't do drama"

Translation: "I LIVE for drama."

I know, it's totally counterintuitive, you think. This person is explicitly saying they don't like drama! But generally, people who declare publicly that they hate drama are always somehow mysteriously surrounded by it. I hate to break it to those people, but if you often find yourself at the center of a lot of drama, you're probably seeking it out, whether you realize it or not.

Sometimes — especially from men, "I don't do drama" takes on a completely different meaning: "I don't do emotions." Still a red flag!
