Tips for spotting a bad date online before you agree to meet him in person.

Oh, he just looooves short hair, but doesn't really have a preference? Watch where he keeps the kitchen scissors and sleep with one eye open, girl. He's vegan and he doesn't care if you eat meat, but three bonus points to vegan girls, LOL? Go ahead and go out with him, but don't say I didn't warn you when he gently suggests you order the tofu at every meal you eat together.

6. He describes what he wants using celebrities.


The down-to-earth charm of Natalie Portman, with the bad-girl edge of Megan Fox, and a touch of Reese Witherspoon, you say? This is the sign of a man who has had little interaction with real, in-the-flesh women, and it should probably stay that way.

7. He's a complainer.

You haven't even been out with him yet and he's already given you a rundown of all of the music, food, movies, and types of women he hates? Steer clear or be prepared to drink heavily on the date, especially if he focuses a lot of attention on that last one. Listen, buddy, no one likes someone who's high-maintenance and high-drama and a cheater and a liar. If he can't keep his past relationship grievances to himself (and/or his therapist) while trying to paint himself as datable, you can expect your honeymoon period to last halfway through the main course, if that.
