Last month, Red Flags were trending on social media where people would share their red flags in a relationship.
Well, a relationship expert, Amber Kelleher-Andrews, has shared some real red flags to look out for when dating someone. Here's what they say to look out for:
1. They Want You to Move Too Fast as a ‘Couple’
Amber says, “If the person you’re seeing is rushing into the dynamics of being a couple without allowing you proper time to get to know each other and let things unfold naturally, it could be a red flag.” She says that this often relates to love bombing.
2. They Only Communicate Via Text or Social Media
The occasional “I’m thinking about you” text is sweet, but to get to know someone, an actual conversation if important to getting to know someone on a deeper level.
3. They Trash Talk Their Ex
Especially on a first date. You don't want to get involved with someone who is obsessed with their ex & probably isn't over them yet. Also you have to think that they might talk about YOU that way someday.
4. They Just Got Out of a Relationship
Amber recommends spending a minimum of 6 months of no dating to allow yourself time and space to reflect and move on from a break up before starting a new relationship.
5. They Got Drunk on the First Date
Having a few drinks to calm your nerves before a first date isn't unusual, but if the person is drinking excessively, especially on a first date, it's not a good sign. Amber urges to, quote, "proceed with caution."
