Gay dating red flags funniest internet dating profiles
Red flags: Moves from one financial crisis into another; never offers to pick up the tab; “forgets” her purse/wallet on more than one occasion; asks to borrow money very early in the relationship; hints that it’d make good financial sense for her to move in right away.
Online dating is one of the most popular reasons society uses technology today.
It’s fun, time-consuming, and for some of us, it’s pretty effective.
However, for others, it could be a destroyer of their hearts, bank accounts, and even of their time.
It’s perfectly okay for her to say, “I’m not really that close to my family,” if that’s the case.
However, if she shares the full details of every little family feud — including accusations of infidelity, addiction and/or abuse — she’s in violation of first-few-dates protocol.
Often we do this despite the bright red “Dater Beware” signs blinking in front of us.
In order to save you a bit of time, trouble and tragedy, we’ve put together this list of five relationship red flags of which to be wary. “I’M BAD AT RELATIONSHIPS” They say that people often tell us who they are right from the start. Case in point: A woman I dated for eight years told me during our first encounter that she was “bad at relationships.” But blinded by her charisma, smile and yes, good looks, I was deaf to the warning.
However, if your new girlfriend peppers every discussion with, “Oh, that reminds me of the time my ex …” or frequently insists on changing the radio station because “that song reminds me of my ex” or, even worse, tears up when discussing her ex, you may have caught her just a wee bit too early in the healing process.
Your lavish flower delivery can be countered by an equally thoughtful but far less expensive gesture.
Quite simply, when it comes to money matters trust your gut.
A bit naïve, I wasn’t even sure what “bad at relationships” meant; aren’t relationships something you just do naturally?
Over time I learned that, at least in her case, “bad at relationships” meant selfish, inflexible and unable to communicate openly.
Yes, her honesty may be admirable, but if she’s willing to share such sensitive information with a complete stranger at the outset she very well may have boundary issues.
