Topic of the Week:

Red Flags in a Relationship

There are a lot of women (and men) out there in relationships that aren’t going in the right direction, but they either don’t recognize the red flags or just plain ignore them. In order to find “The One” dating is obviously necessary, but you’re not going to find “Mr. Right” if you’re in a relationship with “Mr. Right Now.” This week I am going talk about red flags in a relationship, signs that the person you’re with may not be the right one for you.

So what are the warning signs and how do you spot them?  First off, I have to say that the one thing that women seem to worry about the most (the wandering eye) is not necessarily a red flag. Men are going to look at women, even if we’re in a solid relationship, it’s in our nature…but it doesn’t mean we want to be with someone else.

You should be secure enough in your relationship to know that it’s ok to look. The red flags come into play when it goes beyond that (flirting through email and/or text messages, etc.)  Sometimes it’s harmless, but sometimes it not. Everyone wants to feel that special connection with someone, but if you or the person that you’re with is seeking that connection through someone else, it may be time to move on.

Also, if you (or your significant other) keep looking for excuses to be away from each other, such as working longer hours, planning nights out without the other, etc., it may be time to move on.

You don’t have to hate the person you’re with to justify ending a relationship. You fell in love with them at some point for a reason, they just may not be the right fit for you. So always remember, it is possible to have a respectful break up. Why stay with someone if they are not making you happy?

That’s it for this week. Remember ladies, send your questions to [email protected]!

  1. Trigg –

    I think you made some great points here. It is hard as a woman when you see your boyfriend oogling, I just try to remind myself that I want a man that appreciates beautiful women and that it’s just a “guy” thing. Still, though, it feels good to hear it!

    Keep up the great work and keep em coming!

  2. yeah, it’s unrealistic to think a guy will forever and always “only have eyes for you”.
