30 million people use online dating sites every month, and as many as 40% of them could already be married. I met and dated a guy for four months without knowing he was married the entire time. And when I confronted him he admitted cheating but said he had no plans to leave his wife. I want to save you from that heartache and having to do a reverse phone search. Here are a few of the signs:
If they won’t post any clear or identifiable photos of themselves as their profile pic or in their public photos. They might be married and they might be trying to remain incognito. The person I dated had only a group photo as a profile pic and kept all their other photos private. While using my old phone, I could barely find photos of them. I didn’t see a clear photo of his face until we had exchanged phone numbers.
They Won’t Give You Personal Information
Of course, you should always be wary of giving your personal information to strangers at first. That’s just common sense. But if the person you are talking with is married even after you have given up some of your personal information to establish mutual trust they won’t give you their personal information. They may not want to give you their phone number, insisting that they will call or text you when they are free. Or they may give you a VOIP phone line that goes straight to voicemail and tell you to leave a message and they will call you back. Make sure you run a background check first!
They Talk And Text At Strange Hours
If you have moved to the talking on the phone and texting part of online dating and the person you’re dating is married or in a relationship, you might notice that they are very reluctant to talk on the phone or text with you and this is an obvious sign. They might ask you to message them on social media or email them instead of talk or text. If they do want to talk on the phone it could be at odd hours like during lunchtime when they’re at work, very early in the morning or very late at night. They also may only text you during brief periods of the day.
