Have you noticed any of these in your relationship?
Sometimes when a relationship ends badly you wish you could go back and smack yourself. That you could shake your past self and say wake up, this needs to end!
Like those times when your partner commented on your weight or when he told you he hated your friends. Those little red flags that triggered something in your brain at the time, but you wrote it off as no big deal.
Looking back now though, it’s obvious those little niggles were an indicator of a bigger, irreparable problem.
Last week, Reddit users shared the one (or a few) red flags in their relationship that they didn't notice until it was too late.
See if any of them resonate with you...
1. "Let's downgrade from a relationship. But still higher than a friendship."
2. "Complete unwillingness to communicate about serious issues. If something was bothering her, she'd brush it off, bottle it up and save up an arsenal. Then one day she'd explode and lay into me about things that happened months prior that she'd been carrying around ever since."
3. "He refused to acknowledge me as his girlfriend in public."
4. "No Bible study group meeting goes on till 11:30 in the night... I should have known better."
