What’s My Red Flag?
Romantics look for red flags like the game of love is a game of Minesweeper. Whether problems fall into the categories of too late, too soon, or too much, it’s all-too-important to recognize the issue. But while you may have looked for your partners’ red flags, have you ever thought to ask, ‘what’s my red flag?’
We all have issues. Some have more than others, but if you disagree with that statement as a whole, narcissism etches itself into the forbidden fabric of a red flag. Your red flag might point in the opposite direction. Being overly attached to your partner suffocates their mind, which can render that person co-dependent or at a loss of individual identities.
When you are away from your partner or together in public, it’s important to trust that the person won’t cross boundaries and that strangers/acquaintances aren’t threats. If partner paranoia is warranted based on an infamous intimacy history, being unfaithful is the classic red color. Nagging over small issues snowballs into a big one if you or your partner acts more like a mother than a lover.
What's my red flag? This has been a worry in the dating world ever since society deemed cavemen too aggressive. Now that caves have given way to computers, many search the internet rather than themselves for answers. Personal blogs from experts and ex-partners alike love to determine the answers through signs. Twitter and other social media platforms share wild stories about expectations vs. reality on first dates and beyond. Friends, parents, and other family members substitute the global drama with their own input. A personality quiz like the ones found on BrainFall points with precision.
