Often ‘red flags’ are a character trait, for example aggression, and at other times it’s a fundamental core difference in values, indicating something that’s extremely important to you that you really shouldn’t and cannot ignore.
Red flags can and often will deal a fatal blow to the relationship.
You’ve probably heard everyone from your grandma to Dr.
Phil warn you about red flags in romantic relationships, and I’ve got a few to add to the list!
Are they incapable of doing much for themselves because they haven’t grown up? Unfortunately things happen in life and it can be difficult getting over things and dealing with them.They are normally things that you don’t want to compromise on.In your mind, as part of the natural process of life and certainly because you want to have a decent mate to have a relationship with, there need to be certain predefined things that you know that you will not accept, regardless of how fabulous he/she is, or that will cause you to pause things and question the problem to clear up the red flag.It’s important to note that we all make a massive effort when we first meet someone but that ultimately we can’t help but slip into our natural selves within the first few dates, plus we can’t control situations and life, which means we get put to the test and inadvertently reveal our true selves.This is something that the other party does which flags a potential problem either then or further down the line.One of the things that allows people with some of these red flags to ‘prosper’ and to continue as normal is acceptance of the behaviour as is, with rarely any questions asked.If you have someone with any of the above, raise the issue with them, or if it’s serious enough, bail out and don’t look back.Ignoring these gives the person a lifeline to expand upon these issues and the damage that can be dealt with this lifeline may have long lasting repercussions.The key with a red flag is that whatever it is, it’s something that alerts you to other potential issues or that normally you would be wary or not accepting of.Acts rudely or disrespectfully to others during the date.It never fails: I hear people say every day that they didn’t see the warning signs until it was too late.
