So if you want to save yourself time, heartbreak, and energy, read on. Who knows? You might even see some familiar behaviors in this list.
Here are a few red flags to watch out for in your intimate relationships:
Feeling Insecure in The Relationship
If you often feel that you don’t know where you stand in a relationship, there’s a reason for that. You may seek reassurances from your partner, but somehow these are only momentary and fleeting. As a result, you may be working double duty to keep the relationship on track while your partner contributes little. Remember – If he wants you, you’ll know. If he doesn’t want you, you’ll feel confused.
You’re Relationship Is On The Down-low
Some people simply don’t like splashing their personal life onto social media or even talking much about their feelings with friends, but that’s different from flat-out hiding your partnership, which is about as glaringly red as a flag can get! It seems like worst-case scenario thinking, but it could be that he doesn’t want friends or even other girls to see that you’re in the picture. Literally.
They Don’t Respect Your Boundaries
Just because you’re in a romantic relationship doesn’t mean that all boundaries should go out the window. If anything, your partner should be one of the main people who respect you the most. If you only blame yourself when things go wrong or feel shame for requesting a boundary, then it’s possible that your partner doesn’t care about you and what you want.
Non-resolution of Past Relationships
These include not just intimate relationships but those with family members and friends. If a person is unable to evaluate why past relationships haven’t worked out, or consistently blames the other party for all of the problems, you can bet with a great deal of confidence that the same thing could happen with your relationship.
Lack of Trust
When a person has difficulty being honest with himself or herself, it may be hard for them to be honest with you. Some of this behavior may not be calculated and malicious but simply a learned way or habit of coping. However, being out-and-out lied to is a no-brainer. A person who holds himself or herself unaccountable for their actions lacks integrity and lacks respect for their partner.
