What’s A Red Flag?

24 Jan

Red Flags, in general, represent cautions.  They alert us to danger, tell us to stop or say, “Hey pay attention, because something’s up”.

Though we don’t always take notice when it happens, everyone has this natural feeling of “Alert!” when we are presented with something that we don’t like, disagree with, or are unfamiliar with.

Subconscious feelings towards a Red Flag will usually tell you to turn and run. It is the choice we make to either react to these feelings or ignore them that end up being the reasons for our dating and relationship issues.

Ultimately, it is the decision to turn a blind eye to these flags and feelings that lead us to that dark place where we must sit and reflect on the horror story we just survived.

Typically, it is only after we have tortured ourselves with countless drama, and are left with premature grey hair, empty savings accounts, broken dreams, and shattered hearts that we have our “revelation” that the relationship was doomed from the start.

Why is it important to recognize Red Flags?

Red Flags are important and valuable because they can be used as a tool for making crucial relationship decisions.

Red Flags are defined by our likes, dislikes, turn ons, and turn offs in the opposite sex.  When dating and beginning a new relationship, we  look for Red Flags to determine if the relationship has the potential for success.

Once a Red Flags is waved in front of you, you now have the choice to; overlook it, voice your opinion, or say without doubt, “This is why we will never work out.”  So, in short, Red Flags are the key factors for women and men to consider and use when braving the trenches of the dating jungle.

Most Red Flags are not deal breakers

These Red Flags will be those that you can take note of, but not necessarily use as reasons to end a relationship. This list consists mainly of quirky things your partner does that you will initially Red Flag because they are personal pet peeves.

It is important to note that if no greater Red Flags are found and your relationship continues, these little quirks might become things you will eventually love about your mate.

Love yallz…
