There's a New Dating Trend Called 'Hatfishing'

Dating is rough, and now there's a "new trend" to be worried about. It's called "HatFishing."
... No, that's not a typo!

You've probably heard of catfishing by now, right? Catfishing is when somebody you meet online turns out to be using fake information (photos, biographies, etc.) online. Well, Hatfishing is sort of similar. Iif you've ever gone out with a guy that has worn a baseball cap, this could have happened to you.



Hatfishing is when a guy is doing online dating and all of his photos are with hats on. You don't know what's underneath and he could be hiding his bald as a cue ball head.

The same can happen with offline dating too, of course. If you haven't seen the top of a guys head after a few dates, he MAY be hatfishing you.
