Red Flags in Dating

Red Flags in Dating

While you’re dating a new person, the sentiment and energy of the “honeymoon stage” can blind you, and you may ignore all the advance notice signs or the warnings. Warnings or red flags like steady put-downs can flag a sort of psychological mistreatment, which is somewhat standard.

In a 2011 review by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 47.1% of women and 46.5% of men said they had encountered some mental aggression in a relationship.

It can help with knowing which warnings to pay special attention to so you can tread carefully or cut things off if vital.

So, however, it is in no way a complete list. The following are five marks of red flags you should pay special attention to as you start dating someone new:

“This is me, take it or leave it” attitude

You’re never going to settle on everything with your partner; that much is guaranteed. Be that as it may, figuring out how to track down a middle ground and ways of giving and taking on significant questions is massively substantial for a relationship to flourish. Assuming you notice that you and your partner are having a beyond difficult time compromising, maybe they seem like they would never adjust and compromise, then, at that point, there might be something very wrong with their attitude. Such a person will never accept how they can be flawed and put up their argument as “This is me, take it or leave it,” which is absurd.

80% of the communication is done through texting

A periodic “I’m thinking about you” text is sweet. In any case, assuming the individual you as of late begun dating essentially just speaks with you digitally that is only via text or social media, that could be a sign something is fishy. Some conventional discussion on the phone is helpful to get to know somebody. Assuming all communication is through text, you are just interacting superficially. It could be a significant sign that the other individual isn’t that keen on getting to know you on a more profound level.


Games aren’t cool, mainly while you’re dating. It should be apparent that your date is into you, or, in all likelihood, why bother dating? On the off chance that it’s not satisfactory, that is a warning that justifies a genuine discussion. Whenever we begin dating, and things appear to be smooth with somebody, we really want to feel reinforced or associated, and assuming this bond is compromised, we become restless, incapable of thinking obviously, and suddenly erupt or request evidence that we can depend on the other individual. 

He still talks about his ex (either good or bad ways) 

Although it appears weird to bother talking about a past relationship in the beginning phases of dating, it happens more regularly than you could suspect. They trash talk about their ex or remember their ex a bit too much for their good. A sound, secure, and conscious individual knows not to cross this limit on a first date. Also, you would rather not get excessively engaged with somebody fixated on their ex (and perhaps not over them yet). Likewise, how somebody talks regarding their ex is how they might discuss you sometime in the future, so utilize that to check their degree of development and cognizance.

They cancel dates with no accurate explanations given

Assuming the individual you are dating drops one date to read up for a significant test, that is justifiable. Playing computer games at home, or something better came up, implies you’re dealing with somebody who doesn’t have any regard for you or your time. Save your time for somebody who will make time to hang out because they can hardly wait to invest their time and energy on you. We’re not saying your date sucks on the off chance that they can’t stand to take you on extravagant dates constantly.

However, to go out in the open together, regardless of whether it’s to get fro-yo, see a film, or hit up a party rather than simply connecting at home each and every time both of you hang out is a sign they’re not prepared to commit. They may be keener on hooking up than having a genuine relationship, they’re crudely attempting to conceal you, or they’re simply apathetic and not investing any energy into the relationship. Anything it is, you’re worth more than that, and you deserve somebody who feels the need to show you off.


Observe whenever you notice red flags from the early stages while dating someone. Regardless of whether you’re running into lies, encountering outrageous behavior, or being put down, you should view what is happening seriously and consider what it could mean for you sooner rather than later as well as down the line.
