13 Types of Guys You'll Meet on Online Dating Websites ...

Online dating is one hot topic in the world right now, but before you jump in head first, I’d like to give you a head's up on some types of guys you’ll meet when you start online dating. My mom actually met my stepdad through an online website, and he’s one of the best people I’ve ever known in my life. They’ve been together for almost 5 years now, and though he’ll never be my dad, I’m grateful my mom didn’t meet any creeps out there! Through her experience, I learned a lot about different types of guys you’ll meet on online dating websites. I also know people through former jobs that have dated people online, and there were always the same kinds of guys, no matter what website the online dating service involved. If you’ve got the guts to try online dating, good for you! Just be sure to have a head's up on the kinds of guys you’ll meet online so you can get to the right one much more quickly!

The Profile Pro

One of the most popular types of guys you’ll meet on dating sites is the one who really spiffs up his profile. It will look like he spent as much time doing it as he hopefully spent on a resume, and might even sound like something out of a dating ad in a newspaper. This guy may be a good guy, but he could also be the kind who just wants to put on a good front to hide other things about himself. If his profile sounds like he’s selling a car instead of telling you about himself, think twice before seeking him out first.


The Long Distance Guy

Many men on online dating websites will hesitate to tell women where they live, because they live far away in another state, or they want to maintain a long distance relationship. If you can’t meet him in person, don’t date him! Who knows what other women he’s pulling this off with too, or even if his picture is really him! Creeeepppy!! Some guys just like the idea of having online flings. For some reason, it excites them, so be sure you meet a guy before you commit to dating him.


The Single Dad

I don’t think there is a thing wrong with single dads being on online dating websites. In fact, it can be one of the best and most intelligent ways to meet women without hanging out at clubs and bars all the time. The key here is to know whether the guy is a dad or not so you can make the best decision for you. Also make sure they're not just seeking a woman to take care of their kids, but to also spend a life with. If you see pictures of him with kids, be sure to ask if he's a dad. Also, give him a head's up not to put his kids’ pictures online. This is the Internet after all!


The Comedian

This guy is the man who reminds you of late night talk show hosts. You know what I mean, right? He’ll make jokes to start conversations or act like he’s the center of attention. He might also go over the top during conversations trying to impress you, etc. He might even be difficult to pinpoint if he’s always joking around and never says how he feels.


The Ladies’ Man

This is the kind of guy that calls you “sweetie,” “baby,” etc. after first meeting you. He’s used to using charm to lure women in, and it is no different doing it online than in person. If he can’t call you by your first name, or worse, calls you by another woman’s name, it’s time to click him right out of your life, honey!


The Pushover

The pushover kind of guy is the one who thinks you’re committed and expects too much of you after one or two dates. Or, worse, he hasn’t even met you and expects you to be exclusive. He might send you flowers, texts non-stop, call you all the time, etc. Or, your email inbox may be flooded, or worse, your social media profile covered in messages from someone that you only met once or twice online, or went on a date with once. Yikes! Never friend a guy on Facebook until you’re sure he’s safe to allow into your social media life.


The Corporate Guy

While we all love a guy that is going to be into his corporate work, do you really want a workaholic guy? Do you think that getting important phone calls in the middle of your date is sexy? What happens later on down the line? would he ever call out if your kid was sick -- or if you were sick? Think about this one girls!


The Outdoorsy Guy

This is the guy that loves everything to do with the outdoors. His hobbies include everything from fishing all the way to camping and he may even be into hunting. If you are an outdoorsy girl, this is your perfect match!


He's the one with a profile picture that probably features a mountain range, a river or a tent. Expect to swap stories about the most scenic hiking spots or the best fishing haunts. Whether it’s the adrenaline rush of extreme sports or the peace of spending time amid nature, he's got it covered. He tends to plan dates that involve the great outdoors, so you’ll rarely find him at a fancy restaurant. Think more along the lines of a picturesque picnic or a day hike. If you love the rustle of leaves underfoot and the smell of a campfire, he's the guy who'll make your heart beat faster – in the natural way.


The Divorced Guy

While being divorced is not bad in any way, there is lingering baggage here, especially if he does have kids. You've got to keep in mind that he has this baggage and it might interfere with your relationship sometimes -- keep that in mind!



This is the guy that is super lonely and still single -- but he is deployed. If you are passionate about the military, this is a match for you. This match can come with the challenges of not seeing each other a whole lot and that it is dangerous wherever he is.


Your Ex

Have you ever been online, going through random profiles and you see your ex? And you see that you should be matched up with him? How awkward is that! This is a warning sign for whatever dating website you are on -- it might not be the best!


The Gamer

The gamer guy is the another type that you'll find on dating websites. This is the guy that loves Call of Duty, the guy that absolutely adores anything that has to do with gaming.


The Right One

Finally! This guy will be the kind one, the courteous one and the "normal" one. He'll be the one that allows you to move into the relationship in your own comfort zone, doesn’t make it difficult for you to talk to him, and one that will make sure he’s respectful of you. He will call you by your name, open the door for you, ask to be a part of your life, and be kind to your family. He won’t lie to you, won’t make you doubt him, and most importantly, once you’re exclusive, he’ll take down his online dating profiles and cancel the services!

Dating online seems a little too scary for me, but I know many people who met their mates this way and are incredibly happy and have been for years. What used to seem like the weird thing to do is actually becoming the norm in today’s high tech society. I guess I’m a little old-fashioned, but oh well! Have you ever dated someone through an online dating service? Please do share your experiences if you dare!

I met my boyfriend online and we're now on our 7th month :) I'm really glad I've met the "NORMAL" one. I really dont believe that love can start in an online dating site - but that was before. He's the most loving guy I've ever met. I'm blessed to have him in my life.

Actually I met someone from a site called okcupid that I actually definitely had a super connection with it could just however be that we were both addicted to Star Wars and magic the gathering/online gaming. But that's just my experience him and I didn't work out but not because he was a creep or anything just a normal dude

I've had my fair share of bad dates and good dates! All trial and error I suppose! When I'm on nights out, it's to catch up with friends as I work full time and study part time so chatting to men that way doesn't get a look in. Online dating doesn't work for everyone but it takes time, filter out the one's who seem pushy and just take it slow. All about keeping your options open

Unfortunately yes lol. he was alot like #6. I hadn't even met him yet and he was already getting jealous on Facebook then met him once in nyc and after almost immediately was starting to get jealous again of people that I work with. Overall just became too invested too quickly

I wouldn't want to end up meeting with my dad, like I heard someone else did. I don't trust online dating & there's other ways that'd I'd consider to be safer.

I met my fiancé online.

I've done this twice, the first time I met this guy he seemed alright but as the months went on he turned into a complete idiot and then the second time I got used for sex so I gave up dating sites and finally met a guy through a job and so far he's been amazing

I met my soul mate online, in a game. Not the most normal of circumstances, but after a couple of false starts with other guys, I couldn't be happier!

The last one fits my boyfriend, we started talking a week before he went off to boot camp. Then he asked me through a letter <3 6 months and still going!
