When it comes to the topic of dating someone new, ensure you watch out for these 5 Red Flags


At the beginning of your journey to dating someone, it gets exciting, intoxicating, and invigorating. If you are not mindful, it could end in disaster. So you have to tread likely at this stage of your relationship. Though, everything may look rosy and beautiful, still keep a watch for the following red flags. It may be a determiner between moving forward and remaining with that person.

Bad hygiene

It might be shocking to believe, but not everyone brushes their teeth, showers, or bath daily. It may seem like we are being judgmental when reading the title of this section, but this is an essential aspect to one’s presentation as it could lead to body odor, bad breath, and appearance.

There is a saying that, cleanliness is next to Godliness as there are a lot of setbacks linked with poor hygiene. A study revealed that the accumulation of plague in the mouth could lead to heart-related diseases.

When your date is naturally rude to Ushers, Waiters, etc.

Imagine meeting Joey for dinner, and he’s rude to your server for no just cause, it’s a clear indicator to how he treats people regularly. Though he may look charming and sweet, he’s still trying to impress you.

When you notice the same behavior to bartender’s, ticket takers, baristas and the likes. If he frequently becomes rude to your servers and makes obnoxious comments about them on the table. It’s simple; he’s a rude guy. Anyone you date should not only be nice to you but to everyone around you as it shows inherent behaviors even when masked.

He lies time and time againg.

When lying becomes second nature to someone, and you often catch them lying, it’s a red flag. You might not want to believe this, but a lie is a lie, there are no small lies, and you might want to overlook it as it seems innocent now, but it shows him you are ok with him lying and he can continue with that behavior.

He speaks terrible of he’s exes.

Greenberg recommends paying close attention to how your new date speaks of his exes. When all he talks about them is bad and places everything wrong that happens in the relationship on them, then it’s a major red flag. As it shows, he doesn’t take any responsibility for any wrong and hasn’t learned anything from his past relationships.

When you have nothing in common.

It’s awkward when you go on a date and discover you guys have virtually nothing in common. You ask questions, and it all seems like the more you know about that person the further adrift you get, and you eventually find that you guys are direct opposite of each other.

When it involves two people looking for flings or a no string relationship then it’s not a big deal, but if it involves two people looking for something more, then it’s a major red flag.
