Not all red flags speak negatively of the person we are beginning to get to know. But when a red flag reveals their true character that is something that would crush the vibrant person that you are, move on as of yesterday.For example, simply because someone’s values are different from your own or perspective on life is not in align with yours simply means an intimate relationship might not be the best path should you both want a vibrant, fulfilling future together. Before I dive into the 18 red flags that we should not take lightly, let me preface by saying the more obvious red flags are not listed: physical abuse, cheating, etc.Expressing anger, even by yelling, can release tension, frustration and pain—if done in a safe manner; but it should not be used as a method of control in any situation.Using anger to instill fear in another is unacceptable behavior in any relationship.Also, noticing red flags doesn’t happen necessarily on the first date, or even the second or third. Get to know them without committing, and in some cases, don’t assume something is a red flag when maybe they’re being guarded because they don’t know you yet either.
