10 red flags: valentine’s day prep

Valentine’s Day is a beautiful holiday, full of love, gifts, and smiles. Oh, and red flags. There’s so much red surrounding you on this holiday that you forget to pay attention to these flags. Don’t fret; I’m here to remind you of what to pay attention to.

  1. They ask for your Snapchat instead of your number. I feel like this one is self-explanatory. They’re definitely hiding something.
  2. Lack of boundaries – physical, virtual, and emotional. If they can’t give you some mother-fucking space, get rid of them. It’s unlikely they’ll learn how to respect your boundaries over time, and you’re not here to be a teacher. Suggest they find a therapist, and send them my article on how to choose one.
  3. They hate animals. What the fuck? How do you just hate all animals? There’s definitely something fishy there – pun intended.
  4. You feel like you’re chasing them all the time; they’re definitely not the one. They should be meeting you half-way, not racing you.
  5. Your gut tells you something isn’t right. Listen to your gut. Don’t make excuses for them. Don’t try to fix them or wait it out. Run.
  6. Their favorite artist is Drake. No grown adult loves Drake and isn’t toxic. It’s not possible.
  7. They brush off your feelings. If they’re not willing to discuss your emotions or get defensive every time you mention a concern, they’re not for you. You’re driving down toxic ave, and you’re bound to reach abusive relationship central.
  8. They’re possessive and overly jealous. They don’t necessarily want to be yours, but they want you to be theirs. They’ll make you feel bad for being an individual, don’t let them. Possessiveness and jealousy never lead to anything good or healthy. You don’t own anyone, and they don’t own you.
  9. They only have maybe one friend. Usually, people have at least a handful of friends. If people don’t want to hang out with this person, you probably won’t want to either. There’s something not right here.
  10. If you simply feel like seeing them is a chore, that’s a red flag. Even you try to convince yourself, you clearly don’t want this human in your life. Don’t try to force goodness to come out of it. It never will.
