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.
2. The Momma's Boy
He's always so sweet, it's just you'll always be competing with someone else.
3. The Smelly Guy
You won't … you won't know this one until you meet, at which point it's just too late. Alternately, it's not uncommon to meet a dude with a smelly attitude.
4. The Gamer
There are several types of gamers.
Almost all of them are awesome unless you dislike gaming and/or like to be the center of attention a lot of the time. If you really love to game, as well, find this boy.
5. The Snarky Guy
The snarky guy is so sexy – half of the time. The other half, he's unbearable. The snarky guy is hit-or-miss, it depends on the individual. Those aren't horrible odds, though!
6. The Jerk
The Jerk may, in fact, be a Felipe, or he may be one of those guys who believes in “negging” and all sorts of other twaddle. There are dozens of ways to be a jerk, so I advise keeping a list of all the different kinds you come across.
7. The Sweetheart
A rare gem. Keep him!
8. The Braggart
Bragging is kind of insufferable, although a touch of arrogance can be attractive. You'll have to judge each braggart individually.
9. The Worker-bee
There's nothing wrong with being driven, necessarily, but it's hard if the person you're into doesn't have time to spend with you. If you're work driven, too, however, this can be an ideal match.
10. The Smart Guy
Nothing's sexier than intelligence, although it's easy for the smart guy to start bragging.
11. The Cowboy
You can spot the cowboy even through text. Generally speaking, he's worth a date, at least.
12. The Dog-lover
Well, dog-lovers are different from cat-lovers. They're a special breed. Har har har, see what I did there?
13. The Hook-up
On the one hand, at least he's honest about what he wants. On the other hand, he's also the kind of guy who'll ask for nudes, send unsolicited dick pics, and probably call you fat if you turn him down.
14. The over-commitment Guy
He's … well, he's serious about being serious. In love with love. Sometimes a little psycho.
15. The Funny Guy
Oh, if someone can make you laugh, you need to hold on tight!
16. The Desperate Guy
This guy may also send you pictures of his genitalia even though you did not ask for them and do not want them. He's thirsty.
17. The Liar
The liar lies about many things. Beware the catfisher, though.
