Women talk about the red flags they see in men all the time. There’s a good reason for that. A lot of men are just out to mess with women and women get hurt in the process. But men can get hurt, too. If you’re looking for a woman you can date and enjoy a relationship with, you should watch for red flags in women, too.
If you’re looking for a woman who you can build a future with, you need to be aware of red flags. Keep on the watch for these red flags in women.
#1 She Just Got Out Of A Relationship
If she just got out of a relationship, good or bad, she’s not ready to start a new one. Even if she thinks she is. She’s going to need time to heal.
You can try being her friend but that often turns into something more. If she’s recently out of a relationship, she might be lonely because she’s not used to being on her own. When there’s a strong attraction between two people, it can become physical very easily and then someone is likely to get hurt.
If you really like her and she’s newly single, give her some time to be on her own. Call her in a couple months. If she’s already dating someone else, she likely has emotional issues that prevented her from being single for long, and that’s a red flag in women on its own!
#2 She’s Never Been Single For Long
If a woman has never been single for more than a month or two at a time, it’s not because she’s that relationship-worthy. It’s more likely that she’s got a problem being single and doesn’t know or care for herself very much. Instead of staying single and focusing on herself, she jumps from one relationship to the next in quick succession.
When you meet a woman who hasn’t been solo for very long and she’s eager to jump into a relationship with you, back off quickly. Serial monogamists generally have other issues. She’s got a huge red flag on her and it’s not a relationship that’s going to last.
#3 She’s Emotionally Manipulative
This woman knows how to get what she wants from men, whether it is gifts, time, or a commitment. She uses emotions to manipulate men into doing things they don’t want to do or aren’t ready to do.
Tears are a big one for women like this and frequent tears can be a major red flag in women. That’s not to say that women shouldn’t cry or show their emotions but if she can bring on the tears at a moment’s notice, it’s a huge warning sign.
Do her tears always show up when she’s not getting her way? If so, she’s manipulating you.
#4 She Has A Scary Temper
Anyone who flies off the handle often is a problem. We don’t accept behavior like that from our bosses, our friends, or our family members, so why would you accept that from someone you’re dating?
Temper tantrums are a sign of immaturity. They show that a woman doesn’t know how to handle her emotions and that she’s used to getting her own way. She uses them much the way some women use tears.
She might not even be physically throwing a tantrum. Watch for anger signs in her face and in her other actions. Does her face get red and her hands clench up when you don’t agree with her? Does she smile and nod and then turn around and do damage to your property? Non-physical temper tantrums are just as much of a red flag as physical ones!
#5 She Takes No Responsibility In How Her Past Relationships Ended
A mature person accepts that every relationship has two people in it. That means it takes two for a relationship to go bad. Of course, there are some cases where there really was only one person at fault (like in cases of abuse) but usually, relationships end because there were problems on both ends.
If she’s had a lot of relationships in the past and insists that she didn’t contribute to the relationships ending, she’s likely not very self-aware. This can be a big red flag for a woman. In order to grow and maintain a relationship, you have to understand yourself and know your faults. More importantly, you have to be willing to work on them.
Both men and women have red flags. When you’re interested in pursuing a relationship with anyone, you have to watch for them. Not all red flags are obvious.
