Online dating is no longer the weird, slightly clandestine act it was just ten years ago. These days it's the most common place to meet people, no matter who you're looking for – seriously, guys, girls, there's Black People Meet, J-Date, and even a dating site and app devoted to farmers. There are also crazy people all over every single one of them, but the sad fact is, most of the stories and stereotypes you hear about involve the dudes on dating sites. There are entire Tumblrs and Twitters and Instagram pages devoted to stories of the guys people meet on dating apps and sites – guys like these.
1. The Bye Felipe Guy
If you haven't met this guy, consider yourself lucky, but the truth is that he's regrettably and overwhelmingly common on dating apps and online. He escalates very quickly. He can get scary, too, so if anyone you talk to – man or woman because, honestly, this behavior isn't necessarily restricted to one gender – exhibits signs of being a Felipe, proceed with caution.
