Ever played the hot-or-not game on dating apps? Then, you must have met all the kinds roving in the appscape realm…ahh, the things Love makes us do. Nonetheless, here is an NLT checklist of all the guys you may find on dating apps.

Note: Not all of them are creeps. <silent yay!>

1. The desi Cooper

You are sure to spot a near firang with the greenish eyes that remind you of the sexy Bradley Cooper from the Hangover saga. Swipe right already. He is either unreal or taken.

2. Creepy face, creepier name

Be prepared to find that guy with a big hole in the teeth, popping eyes and a screen name that swivels 180 degrees from his person- yep, you got that one right- charming prince!

3. The poser with the pout

The shirtless hero with a puffy pout and a pose that has his hands on his hip! FML!

4. The common friend

Yeah, bless your luck because at least one of those endless profiles will be of Rahul’s cousin’s ex’s brother because the world is so effing small.

5. Mr. Know-it-all

In the world of dating, be prepared to bump into a Mr. Know-it-all who would insist the encyclopedia is so missing in information. Thank you, Mr. Google but you’re so not date worthy!

6. The sanskari babuji

Yes, even the sanskari guys with too much sharam can be found playing the swipe-game because where else would they find the ‘sundar, susheel, sanskari’ package deal that’d fit in with him and his family!

7. Yo bro!

If you’ve not met one of your distant cousins on the dating app, albeit with a hideous profile, you’ve not been on the dating apps right. And if you have, you realize you liked him better in person and don’t-NOW!

Be all set to find that one guy who would flaunt his America stamped passport all over your face. Damn man, grow up I couldn’t care less how many countries you’ve been to!

9. Too much swag

I don’t know what guys have made of the term ‘swag’ but the only urge the dollops of swag splattered on this breed’s dating profile gives me is one of puking!

10. The hottie

Now, this is the one that can really make your eyeballs pop. There’s nothing wrong with this profile. He is single, so hot that your eyes shall burn and he even has all the qualifications. The icing on the cake – he isn’t your goddamn cousin, but the bad news is – he is too hot for you. To swipe right or left is the question. *sobs hysterically*

11. The sapiosexual

If you can’t have the hottie, you will end up finding this guy. A sapiosexual is like a nerd but not quite one. His intelligence is so charming that you will literally be making love equations together. If you’ve got a brain good enough to charm this one’s pants off, he is the one you would be hooting to date. *Crosses finger*

Which of these did you have the good (or bad) luck to meet?

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
