If we all know anything other than the fact that dating is hard AF, it’s that we all fear the person we match with on a dating app could be a serial killer.
I know, I know. That sounds kind of outrageous, but hear me out: You know virtually nothing about this person, other than what they tell you. And I don’t think I need to tell anyone twice that psychopaths are the best liars. (Seriously, have you ever dated one?)
I will say the chances of you ACTUALLY matching with a serial killer are pretty slim, so you can wipe off the sweat that just started pouring from your face.
BUT because you can never be too safe, here are the six signs the guy you just matched with is PROBABLY a serial killer… and if he’s not, then he’s still creepy as hell:
1. He keeps messaging you with weird codes and riddles.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, but if any guy messages you with questionable symbols or riddles and then ghosts you for a while until he’s back with another weird-ass riddle, he’s probably a serial killer.
It’s likely he’s taken a page out of The Zodiac Killer’s book, as this dude used to send cryptic messages to newspapers to taunt law enforcement who were trying to catch him.
Now, weird emoji combinations don’t necessarily count here… unless those emojis are, like, knives, skulls, weapons and coffins. Then, I might be a little afraid.
