“A [player] is predatory, and he makes his prey feel special while he’s got his sights set on them,” according to relationship and etiquette expert April Masini. “But once he has what he wants, he’s not very interested…. until he is again." Here's four signs the guy you're seeing is a player:
- Your conversations are superficial at best. If you don't know anything of substance about him i.e. his career aspirations, what his relationship is like with his family, etc. it's a red flag.
- You get the feelings that you're one of many. If he lets you believe that he’s only interested in you when his behavior suggests otherwise, that’s a red flag.
- He has multiple dating apps, and you're pretty sure he's swiping right a lot. If he's given you the impression that you're in an exclusive relationship and he's still swiping away, that's a red flag.
- He's smooth AF. This guy is irresistibly charming— and that’s one of the hallmark traits of a player.
