How to tell a guy’s a loser from his phone – without snooping
You’d think guys would’ve figured out what women want by now, but many still haven’t.
And even out of the ones who think they have it all figured out, there’s a little device hanging in their back pocket that will give them away pretty quickly.
We’re not suggesting you go through your new slam’s phone – that always ends badly. What we are saying is there’s a chance the dude you’re talking to will already show you what a loser he is without you having to snoop.
Just keep your eyes extra peeled whenever he’s using your phone in front of you, and you’ll have all the info you need.
1. He keeps sending “sexy” snaps during the work day
His aim is to distract you from your inbox at 2 p.m. with his six pack, but all he really does is clearly demonstrate to you that he has no job. Or, if he does, it’s the type of job that leaves him working weird hours – or he’s such a slacker he can strip down in the bathroom and flex for 20 minutes. Sure, there’s the off chance that he’s a billionaire entrepreneur – but we all know those guys are douchebags 99 percent of the time.
2. Tinder is one of his “suggested apps”
If you’re on the home screen of your phone and you swipe left – you’ll get a screen that displays your calendar activities, top stories, and “Siri App Suggestions.” I’m looking at mine right now and the apps are Messages, Snapchat, Facebook, and Twitter – pretty standard and all apps I’ve used within the past few hours.
But, if your guy swipes to the left to check what time his doctor’s appointment is tomorrow morning and his suggested app is Tinder, that means he’s using Tinder, first off, and using it quite often. And, he probably used it within the last few hours. Probs not what you wanted to hear!
The only thing worse is if he acknowledges the fact that he’s on Tinder but he says it’s “just for fun.” Seriously, the people who can’t admit why they’re really on Tinder are just as bad as the people who were on Ashley Madison back in the day.
3. He follows a zillion Instagram models
You should absolutely not freak out on a guy just because he “liked” Emily Ratajkowski’s butt pic or a mutual female friend’s selfie, and you shouldn’t freak out on him for following a million Instagram models either – but you should judge him.
After all, there’s a time and place to ogle women’s bodies – when he’s watching porn and jerking off. A guy who really feels the need to follow every girl featured on Playboy’s “hottie of the day” column has red flags written all over him. Sorry ’bout it.
4. His most frequently used emoji is a winky face
A guy may not let you get anywhere near his text messages, but if on the off chance he does, or he lets you witness him texting someone else and you notice that one of his most used emojis is a winky face – run.
5. He brings his charger – or a portable charger – everywhere
On one hand, this is a sign that he’s got his shit together and is always prepared. But, let’s be real, you’re not going on a hike in the middle of nowhere, you’re going to get coffee. He’s really that worried about not having phone juice during that time?
If he’s an Instagram influencer getting paid $10,000 per sponsored post you can let this slide, but if this is a clear sign of his smartphone addiction, you might want to pass.
6. He has an obscene amount of unread messages
There are a couple reasons he’s doing this. Either he’s a “bad texter” – which, sorry, isn’t a real thing. Or, more likely, he’s trying to look popular. If that’s not it, then it’s that he’s got a million girls (or guys) texting him stuff he doesn’t want you to see, so he’s leaving them unread until he can get some privacy. Either way, sus!
