Red flag signs in dating
Sometimes you just get a gut feeling that something isn’t right…
Maybe he isn’t showing you the level of respect you expect from a man or maybe he completely ignores your boundaries and personal space.
He'll get disappointed when you can't hang out and will probably kick up a stink about it.
It never fails: I hear people say every day that they didn’t see the warning signs until it was too late.
I’ve found in my clinical work with singles and couples that there are a few red flags that are more serious – or redder, if you will – than others. There’s no need to expand any further – you’ll know it when you see it, and you have to kick that date to the curb right away.
If you break into a mild sweat as you read the list below, it can’t mean something good! There’s no question that dating can be stressful and intimidating, and that a little alcohol can help grease the wheels and put you at ease. Don’t overthink it – just do it and thank me for it later. Saying “yes” to an invitation for a date does not grant your date a VIP pass to your most private thoughts and feelings.
You think to yourself, Sometimes some of the most “obvious” red flags are completely ignored and the consequence is a broken heart.
The thing is, a lot of women are conditioned from a young age to accept these red flags as normal. I don’t care if he lies about his age, or if he conveniently forgets to tell you important things (like a business meeting…).Whether you've just started a new relationship or have been dating for a while, it's not uncommon to overlook your partner's flaws. These love goggles blind you to the negativity he may be bringing to your life or how horrible of a person she is… All of these red flags can be signs that the relationship won't last long, or that there will be a fair amount of arguments coming your way.
