Here are nine warning signs that might mean it’s time to ditch your boo and run for the hills.
1. He won’t introduce you to his friends
He’s met your BFF and your roommates, but whenever you suggest hanging out with his friends, he’s armed and ready with an excuse. You know he has friends because they make frequent appearances in his social media, but you can’t seem to score an invite to one of their secretive hangouts. Maybe he doesn’t want you to meet his boys because he doesn’t view your relationship as a long-term thing, or perhaps his friends don’t even know you exist because, to them (and whomever else), he’s still single. Whatever the reason is, confront him about it sooner rather than later.
2. He’s emotionally attached to his phone (especially around you)
A guy who’s addicted to technology isn’t the most attractive thing to begin with. But a guy who can’t take a break from texting when he’s on a date with you? Huge. Red. Flag. He’s showing you that he doesn’t value your time together enough to put down the phone and fully focus on you, not to mention that it’s super shady — who in his life is requiring constant and immediate responses? Probably not his mom or his friends. And you know it’s not you. Proceed with caution.
3. He goes on and on about his “crazy” exes
This one’s a biggie. When a guy revels in trashing the people he used to date, he’s showing you that he lacks respect for women that, at one point in time, probably meant a lot to him. Don’t forget that you, too, could soon find yourself in this category. And then there’s this: What’s the one thing all these “crazy” chicks have in common? They dated him. He’s the common denominator, so either he’s grossly misrepresenting these people, or he was incredibly skilled at pushing their buttons. Bad and worse.
4. He can’t make decisions on his own
Decisiveness can be difficult, no question about that. But when an adult male is constantly looking to his mom, his friends or even to you for approval before making non-life changing decisions? This is not cute, and it probably means that his maturity level doesn’t match his age.
5. He criticizes you more than he compliments you
Long-term relationships aren’t easy. You’re bound to eventually get on each other’s nerves and start nitpicking. What shouldn’t be hard, however, are the first few months of dating someone — that’s why they call it the honeymoon period. So if he’s super critical and hard on you right off the bat, take that as a sign of (not so good) things to come.
