10 Red Flags The Person You’re Dating Is Actually Awful, From Women Who Have Been There

Love is indeed a rollercoaster, isn’t it? It’s that intoxicating mix of thrill, comfort, and sometimes – yes, terror. But even the most enchanting of spells come with a catch. Love can make us turn a blind eye to some very glaring red flags. These tales of woe are collected from women who finally saw the light and realized their romantic choices were, well, less than stellar.

So, grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and let’s dive into these red flags that make you go, “Oh honey, no.”

1. Her SO got mad at her for getting sick.

Yup, because obviously, she planned her flu to inconvenience him. — /u/caffeine_lights

2. Her partner got jealous of her ex for showing up at her dad’s funeral.

If you’d rather play the jealousy card at a funeral than comfort your partner, it’s game over. — /u/Ginger_Maple

3. Her boyfriend asked her to pay him back for the NyQuil he got her when she was ill.

Nothing says “I love you” like an itemized receipt for cold medicine. — /u/CaptCmndr

4. It took meeting another guy to make this woman see the light.

Sometimes, the right person shows up just to help you realize how wrong the other one is. — /u/myyusernameismeta

5. Her SO started drinking first thing in the morning.

And no, we don’t mean orange juice. — /u/weasel999

6. She and her boyfriend were just… not on the same level.

They were in a relationship, but as it turns out, they were galaxies apart. — /u/runsnreads24

7. She found out he was jerking it to pics of his female friends.

Red flag or glaring red billboard? — /u/grammatala

8. Her SO called her mean names.

Trust me, if it quacks like a duck and calls you terrible names, it’s not your soulmate. — /u/maddirosecook

9. Her partner told her to “get over” her dad’s death.

Compassion level: non-existent. — /u/trashblonde

10. Her boyfriend was talking about her behind her back.

Remember, if someone can’t say nice things, they probably shouldn’t be in your life. — /u/three-of-heart

So there you have it. If any of these stories struck a chord, it might be time to take a closer look at your own relationship. You’ve got one life to live, so don’t waste it on someone who doesn’t treat you with the respect and love you deserve.
