Red flags when dating someone
We show one another our true colors right away, so if there's already a nagging feeling in the back of your mind, it'll only get worse.
Here are 10 serious warning signals you should try not to ignore while dating.
If you have something fun you want to do, of course it's perfectly fine to invite your new object of twitterpation along for the ride.
But if you find yourself making the first move every time, they might be just not that into you.
If you're in the first few months of dating and there have been a few false starts or warning signals, perhaps it's nothing — everyone is flawed, and it's good to give a little leeway here and there.
But there are some legit red flags that some people wave around like glow sticks on a dance floor, and it's up to you to pay attention to them.
I'm all for the thrill of the chase in the beginning, but sometimes you just need to know if you're meeting at 7 or 8, and it doesn't feel good to have to wait 17 hours for a response. But if the next day you fire off a quick question, and they don't respond for two days, you might want to bid them and their sexts adieu. What I don't do is pretend I never saw it, because that is an obvious lie.
It never fails: I hear people say every day that they didn’t see the warning signs until it was too late.
Actually, what really happens is that the warning signs are noted but are then swept under the rug in an anxious plea to block out the negative and only see the positive.
Relationships rarely end because of the fault of only one member of the couple, so anyone who speaks badly about an ex on a date lacks insight into why the relationship really failed.
When someone speaks badly about an ex so soon with someone new, it’s a clear sign that he or she is still bitter and angry.
