Though there is no scientific evidence on the subject, in researching this article, we’re fairly sure that roughly 1 in 4 men and women are dating an honest-to-goodness sleazeball (yes, women can be sleazeballs, too).

Read on for true encounters so shocking, you might feel compelled to take a shower ... in bleach.

Here are 60 unfortunate signs you're in love with a sleazeball:

1. They don't know how to communicate

Choosing to run, hide, deny, and ignore instead of communicate respectfully and effectively is cowardly at best.

2. They take attention-seeking pictures

Shirtless photo-in-the-mirror profile pics? D bag. Duck lips? Double d bag. Oompa-Loompa orange tan with frosted lips, fake nails, and tramp stamp? Run.

3. He's done with you the second you sleep with him

You sleep together, and he drops you off the same night and says, "Well, thanks for coming out."

4. They make you feel insecure

Any guy or girl who makes you feel insecure on purpose is a sleazeball.

5. He plays games with you

If he knows about "The Game" and thinks it’s "cool," bye. How old are we?


6. He only texts you as a booty call

Sorry, ladies: If he only calls you for last-minute dates, you’re plan B or C, and it’s just about sex.  As they (as in sleazeballs) say, "a side chick will never become a main chick."

7. He won't follow you on social media

You’re sleeping together but can't be Facebook friends or see his Instagram. Red flag!

8. He doesn't mind sharing you

He acts into you, you sleep with him and then he says it’s cool if you see other guys but wants to continue sleeping with you. Ladies, this is not someone you want to spend time with. What dude wants to share that? Oh, we know: a sleazeball.

9. He lovebombs you

Any man who pushes you to be exclusive, swears its destiny, promises you the sun, moon, and stars, and talks about your future on date three is either a sleazeball or a stalker.


10. He makes questionable gestures

Flipping off the camera is not cool, it’s lame. While we’re on that topic, sideways peace signs are just ...

11. He or she doesn’t text you back for days

Everyone has their phone with them 24-7. It’s a sign they only care to speak to you when it’s convenient for them. Or they have a relationship.

12. He doesn't take STDs seriously

He tells you that the STD info put out by the CDC is false and just "intended to scare us". Ew! #GetOffMe

13. She talks about the size of other guys

She talks about the other guy's penis size and says, "but you're good, too."

14. They're on their phone while you're on a date

If he or she is texting while you’re out at dinner or going to the bathroom with their phone, they are likely texting someone else.


15. He's a little too worried about your weight

He says, "I’m glad we’re on the same page about wanting kids–and getting rid of the baby weight quickly."

16.  He has an opinion about your hair color

17. They have past relationships with age gaps

He or she is dating men/women who are two decades younger/older and are hotter/richer than them. It must be because they have so much in common.

18. He gives you IOU’s

Actual IOU's on torn cardboard-- instead of gifts on special days.

19. He has never introduced his friends to you

If you have been seeing one another for six months and he’s telling you he loves you but his friends have no idea who you are, you’re not together.
