And that you could easily write even more! Bonnie shudders. Just another example of why dating in and beyond — is looming is so challenging and tricky to navigate. Many of these words and terms have a different meaning outside of online dating. These terms should be harmless.
Or straight-forward. Or never uttered outside of dating. Fun, adventurous, open-minded — These have been hijacked by the online dating community. These typically refer to sex. Anal sex. Sex tapes. Yada, yada.
I define it as someone who is attracted to intelligence. Folks incorrectly assume that a sapiosexual could care less about physical attraction. Au contraire! An example of what being a sapiosexual is like: while on a date with a certain lanky Texanhe surprised me by talking about genetics something science-y. I have zero interest in genetics, but it was titillating to hear him use big words and discuss complex concepts. Ooo la la! Yep, I was turned on and started to blush.
Over genetics, people! Stop calling yourself a sapiosexual. I happen to like lean guys in glasses. It might be sapiosexual-adjacent at best! Active Lifestyle — One of my favorite Medium writers, Shani Silvercrafted an awesome story on this topic. I highly recommend it. This guy might be a triathlete, cross-fitter, or have some other athletic hobby that takes up a large chunk of his life.
It also might mean that he le a busy lifestyle and is looking for someone who prefers to be on-the-go rather than a homebody. Divorced — Perhaps. The attorneys have been engaged, the divorce papers filed, and separate residences are being maintained. These answers matter and can vary from what is on the profile. Or you can decide to pass hard on this category entirely. I promise to write a full story on my thoughts on the currently separated man, but for now I will simply say that I no longer date this category of guy even if the divorce is pending.
You will have zero say in the matter. Looking for a FWB friend with benefits — Take this guy at his word. I have never entered into a FWB arrangement, but enough women have responded to my stories over the past year to confirm my suspicions.
The guy that says he wants a FWB arrangement is never going to make a commitment to you. You are going to end up disappointed at best and very hurt at worst. Looking for fun but open to something more serious — This guy is typically full of it. I have yet to meet a single guy who has written that in his profile decide to enter anything resembling a relationship. Some guys write it with intent to deceive. But others think they mean it or might mean itbut once they meet someone else who is stable, attractive, and emotionally available for a relationship, they have a gut check.
They realize that, nope, they are not actually ready for a relationship. Without fail I have had this happen. Looking for a LTR long term relationship — This guy is probably sincere. When I have interacted with guys that admit they are looking for something more serious, I have found them to be true to their word.
Again, I know that this is not an exhaustive list. Any other terms or definitions that I can illuminate? Please comment. Bonnie was off the dating market from when she met her now ex-husband till early She has been online dating on-and-off for over 4 years. She has gone out on at least first dates, interacted with over guys, and reviewed at least profiles.
