For this article I used the descriptions of women who have shared their online dating experiences with me to describe 11 types of (heterosexual) men who are drawn to Internet dating.
I realize, as do you, that there are infinite varieties of men who engage in online dating for infinite reasons.
However, it is equally possible for him to remain non-committal when he is still hung up on someone else, so proceed with caution.
Either way, these scenarios may take a long time to play out.5.
Regardless, this is not a category of men that can offer another woman a serious, consistent relationship.
(This category may also include the desire to act out sexual fantasies and fetishes that couldn’t previously be realized).
This can be a difficult and provocative situation for all parties involved, so proceed with caution.
Most assumptions about how you and he will conduct your relationship are not as straight-forward and as they may initially seem.4.
Therefore, when he connects and makes plans online, he likely follows through, sometimes sooner, sometimes later.
Either way, unlike the first type listed, he has probably had more positive than negative dating experiences overall, so he may be open right away or over time to a committed, authentic relationship.
