15 Early Signs to Recognize an Online Predator

We meet so many people online and sometimes it’s really hard to recognize online predators. They don’t stand out at first, and can seem just like anyone else. They use fake accounts with fake pictures and fake information, and sometimes it’s impossible to know who you’re really talking to.

That hot 16-year-old babe you’ve been chatting up for weeks could be a middle aged bus driver with too much time on their hands. Basically anyone that you only know online could be a predator hiding behind a picture. These early warning signs will make it easier for you to recognize online predators.

1.They Pry for Information – They want to know your full name, gender, birth date, address, friends’ names, and where you go to school so they can find you. 
2.They Always Agree with You – No matter what you say, they feel the exact same way. It’s an attempt to win you over and gain your complete trust. 
3.They Try to Pressure You into Meeting – They are constantly bugging you about meeting up as soon as possible. 
4.They Ask a Lot of Questions – They want to know about your friends, what you did at school, your favorite color, and everything else about you. 
5.They Swoon over You – They constantly tell you how important you are to them very early on. 
6.They Try to Turn You against Other People – They will tell you that your family and friends don’t appreciate you the way they do. 
7.They Know Things about You – They tell you things about yourself that you know you didn’t tell them. They were clearly stalking your social networks. 
8.They Monitor Your Online Activities – They keep an eye on you when you’re online. They are controlling and want to know where you’ve been when you’re not online. 
9.Their Stories Don’t Add Up – Maybe their stories don’t make sense or maybe they say they’re a teenager, but they’ve said things that make them seem older. 
10.They Offer You Gifts – If someone offers you presents or money, they are either hoping for your address or something in return. 
11.They Ask You for Pictures – They might even send you pictures of them. Keep in mind that those pictures could be of anybody. They aren’t necessarily of them. 
12.They Stalk You Online – They message you several times a day on all of your social networks, and show up on every website you go to. 
13.They Make Uncomfortable Comments – They start making sexual comments or comments that make you feel uncomfortable. 
14.They Ask You to Lie – They ask you to lie to your parents or someone important to you. Later, they will use that lie to blackmail you. 
15.They Stalk Your Family and Friends – They go through your friends on your social networks and start adding them to their own lists. 

Any time you think you’re talking to an online predator, end the conversation and block them immediately. If they continue to stalk you, tell someone and get help.

SpacePioneer  - According to everyone that didn't grow up with the internet, 99% of everyone on the internet is a predator. ...Maybe on the deep web, but on the normal internet? Nah, more like 10% at the very most possible. - Mar 13 2017 - Like
