the truth about dating sites - Red flags for dating someone

“Men mess up and then we feel badly about it.” One of my best friends in graduate school used to say this.

As we swapped stories, too often this was a conclusion we came down to. Another said he was too good for the girl he was dating. Women wishing it was a small drawback and not an indication of something bigger.

You, my friend, are dating a control freak, and you should run as fast as you can!

Control freaks don’t really love you or accept you the way you are.

After becoming exclusive and having a relationship blossom over the course of several months, a guy will naturally incorporate you into his life more and more. If six months go by and you haven't met a soul, there may be a reason—and you deserve to know it.

Heck, even his uncle who just got released from prison (yep, true story).

They simply want you to fit the narrative of what they feel the perfect partner is for them. Life is too short to live it the way someone else thinks you should live it.

Does your significant other drink too often or go out too much? Do they become a completely different person when they do drink? Do they become sexually coercive or hit on other men/women when they are drunk? If your significant other has habits that are questionable, you should break up with them as quickly as possible and move on.

Do they continue to touch you in seemingly innocent ways (like hugs, shoulder rubs or even repeatedly poking you in the arm like a sibling) when you ask for personal space?

This might be a sign they don't respect your right to your own body and could try to push those boundaries to much more dangerous limits in the future.

Sometimes you just get a gut feeling that something isn’t right…

Maybe he isn’t showing you the level of respect you expect from a man or maybe he completely ignores your boundaries and personal space.

When one partner is constantly initiating sex and the other isn't in the mood very often, you're in for a world of crushed egos, hurt feelings, emotional pressure, and resentment from both sides.
