Identifying the red flags in a relationship is very necessary to avoid any situations that can cause you emotional or physical pain. Red flags are the negative traits in a person that steer towards manipulation, excessive anger and pessimism. Partners with red flags can make life difficult for you, because you will constantly be faced with hurt, betrayal and disappointment. If your partner shows the following listed phrases, then these are major signs of red flags. Beware!
1. Being too nice when they need something
“Hey, you look really beautiful tonight. By the way, I wanted to ask if I could borrow your car.”
If your partner only treats or talks to you nicely when they need something from you, then it’s a sign that they don’t majorly care for what you think. They just want you for the benefits.
2. Bringing other people to a date
Your partner may treat your kindness as an opportunity to spend your money, by constantly bringing their friends over to a date that only you both should have together. They treat your inability to say NO, as opportunities to take advantage of you.
3. Insensitive jokes
“Calm down, I was only joking.”
If your partner jokes insensitively about you and then makes you feel bad for being too hurt about it, then know that it’s a major red flag. Your partner should be the one who makes you feel good about yourself, not the other way around.
4. Taking advantage of you
“Can you help me with getting a job at your dad’s company?”
Your partner may look towards you as a ladder to climb their way to success. They may treat you as a vessel of obtaining their goals and ambitions. In such a case, they don’t really care about you or the relationship.
5. Being busy always
“I can’t text you when I’m busy”
If your partner hardly makes time for you, and always explains their absence due to their busy schedules, then it’s almost a definite sign that they don’t want to put extra effort into spending time with you. They will keep giving excuses for their absence and dive deep into their busy schedules.
