In the modern age of social media with Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat. Tinder, and whole bunch of messengers most of relationships are at least semi-virtual. But what if you met a guy online and all you have is that virtual world of fantasies, endless possibilities, and possible lies? It’s so easy to pose as someone else when you go online. Most of us do it every day when we post something on our Facebook pages – we tend to reveal only the good stuff, leaving all that is not so perfect behind the scenes. So how do you tell if your online relationship has a future or not? There are a few tell-tale signs you need to watch out for.
He’s too perfect
There are all kinds of people in the world, some of them are quite talented, but you can’t be everything all at once. It’s either a doctor, a photographer, or a travelling artist, but not all of the above. If you’ve been hearing quite a lot of stories that seem to be too good to be true, there’s a high chance you’re being lied to. And that is never a good thing when you’re trying to build relationship.
He refuses to video chat
Nowadays even the cheapest smartphone has a camera decent enough to let you video chat with friends, family, and loved ones. If your online boyfriend has not even once suggested to video chat with you, it’s a sure sign that something’s wrong. He’s either hiding something or doesn’t want to get closer to you. Whatever the reason, you should proceed carefully and find out why exactly he refuses to show himself to you in real life.
He doesn’t call you on the phone
When you date someone it’s natural to want to know more about the person, and what better way to do that than just talk? If you are far apart, then using the phone is the simplest solution to chat and get to know each other better. If you aren’t doing even that, we are sorry to say this, but your online relationship is in big trouble.
He provides too little information
While it’s completely understandable why someone wouldn’t want to share too much information about himself on the web, you kind of expect to get at least some kind of info about the person you are dating, whether it’s online or in real life. If his profile is totally blank and there is no actual proof of whether what he tells you is true, you might want to re-think the whole concept of your relationship. It would have been totally weird in real life, wouldn’t it?
He never introduced his friends
Friends and family are really important to us as they are the closest people who know us like no one else. If he has never even shown you his friends’ photos or revealed some info about his family, it means he doesn’t want them to know about your existence. If you’re really into someone and want to build something serious with that person, you will naturally want them to know more about you. If that’s not the case with your online relationship – it’s time for a serious talk with your boyfriend.
He tells inconsistent stories
Sometimes we like a person so much that we are ready to ignore some pretty obnoxious things they do. Take a step back and think whether he’s ever told you stories that just didn’t make sense when put together, with weird timelines and twisted facts. If he says he has two siblings and then there are actually three – it’s the number one warning sign he’s messing up the facts and that you don’t really know the person you are dating at all.
He has never invited you over
If you’ve been online dating for a while, but he has never ever invited you over or asked out on a date in real life, then it’s a sure sign that the guy just doesn’t want to take your relationship to the next level. For some reason what you have now is enough for him or he’s simply afraid to reveal himself to you in person. Either way, it’s time for you to move on!
