    Anyone else see this on Huffpost?

    HuffPost Gay VoicesLike most people, I'm running in to this new flake way everywhere I go. He doesn't just respond to your texts; he actually initiates them (a sure sign from normal guys that they're into you). He tells you how hot he thinks you are, and sends loads of pics and goes crazy over yours.


    I hate him and I want him to die. It makes me want to give up on all apps / websites etc.

    Why do we have to keep coming up with labels for stuff? Can't we just call people assholes and be done with it?

    After reading the article it occurs to me that "The Typist" is NOT a flake. He's a FAKE.

    I've come to believe that there are three sure signs that a guy is a fake: 1) he immediately claims to be "in love" with you...even on the first chat; 2) he won't meet in person, even though he claims to be into you; and 3) he won't (or "can't") Skype.

    I think these guys -- and sadly I've encountered several on-line, even on RJ -- use pics from someone else to lure a guy in and engage him in lurid chat of love and sex, thus satisfying their need to have some interaction with someone they think is attractive.

    In reality, The Typist probably looks like this:

    Yeah, you're both probably right.
