Red flags for dating men
Red Flag Rule #10: If a guy can't hear the word "vagina" without giggling, he should not be permitted to touch yours.Red Flag Rule #12: If a guy can pick up a phone and send you a text, surely he can use the same phone and call you with it.
Red Flag Rule #5: If your "dates" with a guy consist solely of booze and booty calls, chances are he's not your boyfriend. When you do, you’re setting yourself up for a terrible relationship. When those flags arrive, you better address them immediately. She’s probably even done this to lots of other guys, but they never said anything so now her behavior continues. Don’t hesitate and don’t worry if she doesn’t like you anymore. Have you noticed any red flags in your past relationships that you didn’t tackle immediately? Did you break up because of the red flags, or did you keep quiet and live with them? I just want to be able to sort out those guys from the good guys. After working with so many clients, I have learned a lot of women do not know the difference between “forgivable mistakes” and the more sinister red flags that should warn you off of a relationship.Sometimes you just get a gut feeling that something isn’t right…Red Flags: One "accidental" case of bumping into you midweek is fine; she could really just be in the neighborhood. She's all cleavage and legs until you get together-then just try to pull her out of that damned sweats-and-ponytail combo.
Two or more, however, and you have a definite problem on your hands. Red Flags: If she orders weird drinks, looks uncomfortable at the bar, or spends most of her time hiding behind her purse on the stool, you've got a girl who can't wait to give up the nightlife.
Red Flags: Longing gazes at wedding-dress magazines, a season pass for TLC's A Wedding Story on her Ti Vo, or hours and hours of inane wedding talk while on the phone with her friends all signify you've got a future Bridezilla just dying to get behind the veil. Suggest a ménage à trois-or float the idea of an open relationship.
Make sure you tell her it's your life goal to "experience" many people. Then she's slipping her hands into your pockets-and reaching for your wallet.
Exit Strategy: Cut her off as abruptly and as ruthlessly as possible. A slower breakaway will only leave her thinking you belong together . Exit Strategy: Hit the bars hard until she can't take it anymore. Be sure to tell her how much you appreciate the fact that she's comfortable being plain-and that you're glad she doesn't care about her looks.
She's a complete wild child and free spirit, until you discover she was saving herself-for you.
The thing is, I have a habit of dating jerks, losers, and just bad guys. yet, but I want to know for sure if there are any signs that I should ditch a guy before it’s too late, I’m obviously missing them.
