They call the beginning of a relationship the “honeymoon phase,” but if you think about it, it’s really the “interview period.” When you’re on those first few dates, you’re both on your best behavior, in your best outfits, trying to see if this relationship is best for you. But if his best behavior when things are brand new is less than peachy-keen, there’s no telling what is to come (all bad).

Behavior in a relationship doesn’t usually get better. We relax, get comfortable and people start to show their true colors. If you’ve seen the following behaviors from a new man in your life — and you’re not prepared for things to get worse — it might be time to take a pass and just take your chances with the other fish in the sea.

He Brings Up His Ex…Again

He might not be a bad guy, but if he has an ex he can’t get off of his mind? He’s still on the rebound and probably not ready for something new.

He Can’t Stop Talking About How Nice He Is

Any man who repeatedly insists that he’s a “nice guy” probably isn’t.

He’s Salty When You Don’t Sleep With Him

The kind of man who thinks dinner and drinks are a down payment for sex is not one that you want to get to know better.

You’re Always Waiting for Him to Call

Want to avoid one of those relationships where you’re waiting by the phone? Stop answering this guy’s calls. If you’re not on his mind regularly, he’s not worth your time.

He’s Already Started Lying

Whether you catch him in the act, or he’s told too many white lies, it’s a good idea to believe a man when he drops a hint that he shouldn’t be trusted.

He Gets Too Drunk

Accidentally overdoing it once because you’re nervous is understandable. But if you find yourself ending every date with a drunk person, he might be dropping a hint that he has a problem.

He’s Bitter

About his ex, about how he’s not treated well at his job, about everything under the sun. A man like this might have trouble taking responsibility for his actions — and it won’t be long before he puts you on the list of people who’ve “wronged” him.

He Has Bad Hygiene

If he can’t get it together for a date? It’s only going to get worse from here on out.

He Keeps You Waiting

Unless his job keeps him very busy, a man who’s chronically late might be telling you that you don’t rate very high on his list of priorities.

He’s Distracted by His Phone

Not only is it insulting, it’s a sign that he has really bad manners (or doesn’t care enough to tap into his good ones).

You Have Too Many Arguments About the Same Things

We can all agree to disagree. But if he badgers you about why it’s dumb for you to be a vegetarian on your first few dates, it’s a bad sign.

He Mostly Wants to Talk About Sex

You’re trying to get to know him but he only wants to know what kind of position you like. It’s a clear sign that you’re interested in different things.

He’s Rude

To your friends, to the waitress, even in the way he talks about his ex. If he can’t even pretend to be nice, he’s really not.

He Doesn’t Tell You When Something’s on Your Face

Someone who will let you spend all night with spinach in your teeth is the kind of guy who’d go ghost without breaking up with you to your face. Keep it moving.
