Ignoring red flags
Those red flags pop up. It’s little things at first. He loses his temper with a server at a restaurant. He talks to his mom on the phone eight times a day. You justify things in your head. Maybe the server did mess up too much. Maybe it’s sweet that he talks to his mom so much. He definitely doesn’t have like…anger issues…right? Nah. And he’s definitely not a mama’s boy who will always put his mother before you…right? No way. That’s what you tell yourself. But you can only tell yourself that for so long until the red flag grows into a giant tent that’s covering and setting the vibe for your entire relationship. Red flags are your friends. Pay them attention.
