In the era of online dating, we have become accustomed to horror stories of catfishes and frauds. It’s all too common for folks to use an outdated picture, or edited photos, or worse yet—someone else’s picture as their profile picture for their online dating profiles. These hurdles aside, there is something even more unnerving when a person seems to be attractive, hygienic, and charming—but is hiding something underneath the surface. A date can be going splendidly until the fateful moment in which they reveal something about themselves that is a huge red flag. Get ready to abandon ship, as we plunge into these stories from people who discovered the dark doings of their seemingly docile dates.
