“We only dated a month but the red flags were immediate and I ignored them.
I shouldn’t have.” – Jeff The takeaway: If your senses of humor don’t match, it’s gonna be a hard life together. I was 18 at the time and thought it was cute how he was so into me.

“If you’re a ‘Seinfeld’ person and you try to date a ‘Friends’ person, you will be constantly disappointed in their straightforward, simple view of the world.
But whether or not you actually dump someone when they hit one of those buzzers is a different story.
Here are a few dating red flags we’ve blown past — only to have things blow up in our faces, no surprise.
She just seemed a little too excited to see him, you know? He was manipulative from the start.” – Christine The takeaway: It can feel impossible to tell if a guy’s being inappropriate with the girls he claims to be friends with.And if you’re an overly analytical “Seinfeld” type, you’ll probably be the one who notices the lack of connection most. I thought she was cool, but knew we were kinda different. We were at a party and someone talked smack about his cousin. When we met up after weeks of sexting, he didn’t even hug me hello.“One day we had been hanging out and we went back to her house and she asked me if we should smoke a joint and I was down. “I def should have know in that moment she was way too high maintenance for me.” – Veronica The takeaway: If someone’s level of prissiness doesn’t match yours, you’d better find it adorable. The guy hadn’t even say anything bad — just ‘he’s an asshole’ or something.

He kept staring at his hot male roommate at awkward times.I hadn’t met his parents yet, so I waited in my car out front.

Who texts their friend when they’re in the same room?! After reading a couple sexts and seeing pics of them having sex, I ended it. If you’re freaked out by his relationships with other girls, don’t let him convince you you’re nuts. Even if you’re wrong and he really does just have a lot of female friends, you shouldn’t be with someone you can’t trust.
