Red flag dating women

30 Jan

They blamed themselves—for choosing him, not ending it sooner, for texting him back when they should have remained silent, the list goes on.

Wanting to find a life partner, spouse, or someone whose shoulder to lean your head upon are a nearly universal desire.

In every dating relationship there are “red flags.” If you can’t identify them, most likely you don’t know the guy very well.

He’s perpetually late, insensitive, or maybe there is no spark between you.

Maybe she thinks it’s desperate or whatever the case may be.

You want someone who’s excited to be meeting tons of new people, yourself included, and cares about finding a potential date, boyfriend, or husband.

It can even feel like too much work starting over with someone new.

For people who are prone to falling in love hard and fast, it’s good to be aware of what these red flags are so that you don’t waste time with people that aren’t meant for you.

“Men mess up and then we feel badly about it.” One of my best friends in graduate school used to say this.

As we swapped stories, too often this was a conclusion we came down to. Another said he was too good for the girl he was dating. Women wishing it was a small drawback and not an indication of something bigger.

Then when it didn’t work out they’d feel badly…about themselves.

No, not the guy who said all of these offensive things or treated a woman disrespectfully.
