We all know about red flags in a relationship, but what exactly are "pink flags"
According to Tracy Ross, a licensed clinical social worker specializing in couples and family therapy:
“Pink flags are those things that you notice, that nag at you. Maybe the first or second time you push them away, but after a few times, you begin to pay attention and ask yourself, ‘Is this a flag that could be a deal breaker, or am I imagining it or overreacting, or is this something that can be addressed?’”
Pink flags are less serious, but can still cause an issue in relationships.
So what are examples of these Pink Flags? Tracy & Alysha Jeney (a therapist and owner of Modern Love Counseling in Denver) put together 10 examples for HuffPost:
