Online Dating Success Tips: Ten Practical Suggestions
Love isn’t easy, as I’ve stated before and will say again. Although you may meet someone you like, it does not mean you will be committed to them for the rest of your life. You’ll likely encounter a few “the ones” before you meet the one. The truth is that most of the time, we disregard the early warning signs that a partner isn’t right for us and continue nevertheless, only to be left heartbroken in the end.
The process of finding a compatible partner isn’t as simple as we imagined. We all want our love life to be like a musical like Grease or High School Musical, after all. The truth is, that won’t happen.
Red flags in a relationship that you must know
There’s no need to suffer through heartache. Since I’ve had a good deal of it, I can declare with certainty that I don’t miss it. I went out with males and ignored the warning signs, so I was startled when they abandoned or dumped me. However, the indications were plainly visible. It was my own fault that I failed to notice the warning signs of a troubled relationship in the early stages and take action.
I don’t want you to suffer needlessly for some dickhead’s sake. Instead, learn the warning signs, look for them, and then sprint the other way. Truthfully, no one ever stated, “They have so many excellent red flags, I absolutely love them.” That’s not the case at all. If you see them in your relationship, leave immediately.
1. Communication is non-existent between them. You won’t get very far if you can’t communicate with your partner. I’m not referring to meme-sharing. I’m referring about talking about things that annoy you to each other.
It’s a big red flag if they’re not able to talk about their problems openly. Instead, what’s going to happen? Is this going to be entirely your fault? Is this the end of the world? Relationships don’t function that way.
2. They have a sense of entitlement. Having to wait two weeks following a surgery to have sex with my friend made her partner angry. To be honest, there is nothing else I can say.
People who feel entitled are those who think others should be doing more for them, or who don’t feel like their partners are doing enough for them. That they don’t really care about you is a significant red flag.
3. You’re defending their conduct. Despite the fact that this is a new relationship, you find yourself making excuses for their actions in front of others. As an alternative to having a fight with this individual, you throw away all the unpleasant evidence in your thoughts so that you can be in agreement with your other half. As a result, you’re only concocting a false picture of them so that you don’t have to face the truth about who they are.
4. They’re the focus of everyone’s attention. The universe would revolve around them if they had their way. A problem arises if your primary conversation with them revolves around what they want or need to accomplish. When you’re in a relationship, it’s quite risky to engage in this type of narcissism. It’s not going to be about the two of you in your relationship. In the end, everything will revolve around the two of them.
5. They enjoy pushing the limits. Everyone has personal boundaries, and your partner is particularly fond of pushing yours to the limit. Things like wanting to see you on Tuesday despite your reluctance to do so even if it’s your day off or putting undue pressure on you to move in with them are all examples. Even if they don’t seem like a huge deal, when someone crosses your line, it shows a lack of regard for your authority.
6. They love to point out your flaws. They do everything better than you. Every time you express an opinion, they treat you as if yours is worthless. Emotional manipulation is evident in this situation. It’s all part of their plan to make you feel small and insignificant in comparison to them. When someone dismisses or criticizes you, you’ll know something’s wrong. This is a warning sign.
7. You’ll know it’s there. The problem is clear to you, yet you may be too uneasy or afraid to speak up or take action. Something is wrong when your instinct tells you that something isn’t quite right.
People who have been in previous relationships know what it’s like to be treated with respect or disdain, regardless of whether they’ve experienced those experiences in the past. Watch what they’re doing and pay attention to how you feel.
8. They are jealous. In fairness to everyone, I can’t tell you to be wary of jealousy. Extreme jealousy, on the other hand, is something to be on the lookout for. It’s only that you won’t be able to see this immediately away or make an obvious observation. It may appear to be a problem, but if they’re following you around, hunting for your phone, and interrogating you about your friends aggressively, things aren’t going to get any better any time soon.
9. Drinking too much alcohol. Everyone enjoys the occasional drink, but you should keep an eye on your spouse to make sure he or she isn’t abusing alcohol excessively. Up to a point, it’s natural for someone who is dependent on drugs or alcohol to disguise their addiction. There are many warning indications of alcoholism, such as excessive drinking and a reluctance to drink in front of you.
10. Their ex partners have received a lot of flack. It’s normal for people to have had bad relationships in the past. While it’s understandable that we have mixed feelings about our ex-lovers, it’s a warning indication if your new spouse disparages their past relationships by alleging that their ex-partners were all insane. A person’s inability to accept responsibility for their conduct is evident if they have nothing pleasant to say about their ex-partners.
After reading this, you have a greater grasp of the warning indications that a relationship is headed for trouble. So, let’s start putting the parts together… What if we just take off now?
