Red flags and dating
People have their own quirks, so don't be overly judgemental, but if your partner is making you feel uncomfortable and unhappy, then trust your intuition and pay closer attention. You need to end a bad relationship before you can begin anew and find the partner that's right for you.
Turning up a little late for your date is not a deal breaker; it happens all the time and probably couldn't be helped if the poor guy got caught up in the traffic or was held back in a meeting with his boss.
Another early warning to watch out for involves ordering food or drinks during your date. This kind of repressive behavior early on in your relationship can be his way of testing your boundaries.
If the relationship progresses, he may resort tooercive control.
He is always excusing himself to make or take calls and when he's not leaving he's fidgeting on his phone.
In fact, he seems to be more interested in his screentime than with you.
If he goes on and on about something you have no interest in, then it's a red flag that he is probably more concerned with himself than with building a repertoire with you. This could be a sign he has controlling tendencies.How can you not be smitten with someone who puts you at the center of their universe?
