5 "favourite books" that are a warning sign on dating profiles.
There are a lot of warning signs on dating site profiles. Some of them are right there in the bio, not so subtle, like:
NO LIARS. NO FAKES. I WANT A REAL MAN WHO DOESN'T HAVE ANY BAGGAGE. ARGHHHHHHH NO WOMEN WHO WANT TO LOOK LIKE PARIS HILTON OR GIRLS GONE WILD WHORES PLZ I WANT A NICE PERSON
But sometimes the warning signs are more subtle, hidden away in the "Favourite books" section. These are some titles and authors to watch out for:
1. Anything by Ayn Rand. Unless you want to have about a million fights down the road where you wind up feeling like a crazy person for having feelings instead of being logical. I guess this book might be a plus, though, if the person is under 22 and you are looking for someone really impressionable to take advantage of.
2. The Notebook, by Nicholas Sparks - This is either the kind of dipshit guy who puts Nicholas Sparks on his profile to seem sensitive, or the kind of dipshit girl who falls for it.
3. Noam Chomsky - unless you want to spend the whole relationship pretending not to roll your eyes every time they refer to consumers as "sheeple." Unless it is his linguistics books, in which case the person is not even the interesting kind of linguistics nerd.
4. The Bible - Really?
5. The Secret - This person is just sitting at home, putting it out into the universe that someone will put up with their flaky shit. Stand up for science! Prove them wrong!
