You watch the relationship red flags waving at you, but gosh, he’s just so good-looking. So you dismiss them to see where the relationship will go. The problem with turning a blind eye to those red flags is that eventually they’ll come back to haunt you. You’ll end up hurt and resentful, even though you could have protected yourself. The following are six warning signals of a doomed relationship.
1. He still lives at home
More and more adults are still living at home these days.
So if it’s more common, should it really be considered a relationship red flag?
Yes! Men who still live at home are usually in no hurry to grow up, become independent or financially responsible. Are those the kind of traits you really want in a future partner?
2. He never invites you over
He’s quick to suggest hanging out at your place but never offers up his own digs.
This could clearly be a sign of concealment and should definitely be considered as a relationship red flag.
3. He’s moving too quickly
Be aware of someone who moves at the speed of light when trying to win you over.
Moving too quickly is usually a sign that he’s uncomfortable being by himself or he’s looking for a woman to help solve his problems.
4. He constantly talks bad about an ex
He may not like his ex, but there’s no reason he should continue an ongoing verbal assault on her, no matter how sour the relationship went.
Not only is he offering too much information, but it makes him look tacky, resentful and unwilling to take responsibility for his shortcomings in the relationship.
5. Excessive Parental Attachment
It is one thing to love your mother and father, but it’s another thing to have an excessive relationship with them when you’re an adult.
“Excessive” in these terms means “being a mama’s boy,” only having your parents as your friends, letting your parents influence you in every facet of your life, etc
6. He’s fresh out of a relationship
Timing can be everything, but when you could potentially get involved in a rebound relationship, it may be time to move on.
While rebound relationships occasionally work out for the best, it’s usually one of the relationship red flags to be very cautious of.
If you’ve been through a break-up, you know that it takes a long time to completely recover.
