15 Harsh Realities We Ignore At The Start Of A Relationship That We Regret Later
6They not being over their ex
One big red flag you need to look out for is them being over their ex. If you notice that most of their conversation is about their ex or you feel like they are still hung over their previous relationship then you might be heading for disaster. If you do not find a solution to this now then, later on, this will become a nagging issue.
7Not pointing out their mistakes
When you begin a new relationship you want your partner to see you as someone who will ignore their flaws. This is how you look more attractive and worthy to date. But, ignoring one’s flaws is not the same as ignoring their mistakes which a lot of people do. They stay quiet when their partner makes a mistake which then becomes a bigger issue later on when they think that is the right thing to do.
8Complaining about your ex
This is something you will notice right away and is a major red flag. The person you’re dating will blame all their failed relationships on their exes. This is something you should try to avoid because it will be the end of your relationship. You need to see how often they talk about their exes and in what context they talk about them.
9Not being confident enough
This is something that people often have and do not fix before getting into a relationship. If you want a relationship then you need to have the confidence to hold things together. If you constantly play the victim card then chances are they will get tired of it and leave you.
10They are too controlling
This is another red flag and the sign of a jealous partner. If they control whatever you do and act as a parent rather than as a lover, you should reconsider. Many people do love the attention they get from this type of behavior but they need to realize that this will not make them happy in the long run and they will feel suffocated.
