Dating Advice For Women

When to Call It Off

When to Say No

Not every relationship is perfect, requiring a little compromise and even more patience, but there are some things that should never be ignored.

If No One Knows About You

If you’ve been dating a guy for a few months and you haven’t met any family or friends, that might be a red flag. Eccentric and embarrassing families aside, if he doesn’t introduce you, he might be deliberately keeping you a secret. Unfortunately, none of the reasons that he’s keeping your relationship under wraps are very good. It might be because he’s not taking the relationship seriously and he’s just waiting to dump you when something he really wants comes along. Or worse, he might not be as single as he says he is. You don’t want to be the other woman who’s being kept in the dark.

If He Doesn’t Keep You in the Loop or He Ignores Your Calls

Even the busiest man finds time to text or call those nearest and dearest to his hearts. There’s nothing wrong with knowing which days he has off this week or that every Sunday is Walking Dead night at his buddy’s house. If he refuses to reveal even the loosest details of his schedule, he might be trying to keep you at arm’s length for any number of reasons. Remember how you don’t want to be the other woman who’s being kept in the dark? Before a strange woman ends up on your door step calling you every name under the sun, walk away.

If You Need to Change

If you find yourself second-guessing traits about yourself because they don’t make him happy, there might be a serious problem. Not like the way you fold your clothes, like important personality stuff. If he tells you that your personality isn’t what he wants and that you should change, just call it off. That’s controlling behavior, and he might not stop at just words. Controlling tendencies could progress to serious mind games or even inappropriate physicality. The best way to deal is to back up and leave before it gets any worse. If you don’t, you might end up in a world of trouble that you could have avoided.

If it’s gone further than controlling words already, call the police and file a restraining order. Do every woman a favor and put him in jail. Not only will your brave actions save you, they will save the future women he would have pushed around.

If You Can’t Take Him Home to Mama

You’re sitting down to dinner when the realization hits: You could never take this man to meet your parents. Not because you have eccentric parents who are never satisfied, but because you know this guy will set off their warning bell.

If Your Children Hate Him

If you’re a parent, your children come first. Even if your new beau acts affectionately towards them, if your children are outspoken about not liking him, you should be taking a deeper look at your partner.

There are lots of different red flags, and they apply to every relationship with varying levels of gravity. Make sure to watch your own relationship for the ones that are important to you.

Read up and keep yourself safe from abusive relationships and domestic violence.
