But it could mean he doesn't trust you, or he's intimidated by your guy friends. But then again, if he never takes “no” for an answer, does he respect your boundaries? You're thinking “finally a man who wants to show me off! And eventually, you'll start to get hurt by his constant put-me-downs. Whether you've just started a new relationship or have been dating for a while, it's not uncommon to overlook your partner's flaws. These love goggles blind you to the negativity he may be bringing to your life or how horrible of a person she is...
You get excited because he actually wants to spend a lot of time with you.But if he's spending all his time with you, doesn't that indicate that you're all he has and that he's going to become extremely needy? All of these red flags can be signs that the relationship won't last long, or that there will be a fair amount of arguments coming your way.If you are on a date with someone who acts rudely to wait staff, cashiers, or others, don’t set off on a sermon about how to treat people – save your energy for someone better.Trust me: If you choose to continue dating, sooner or later you will end up on the receiving end of that nastiness. No joke: Head for the hills if your date starts mouthing off about his or her ex.If you’re on a date with someone who has a jealous streak, you can identify that streak by looking for the following signs: asking too many questions about your past relationships; asking too many questions about the type of person you’re attracted to; tracking your eyes when you’re out and following them to see who you’re looking at; and asking you questions that seem too specific about who you socialize with on any given occasion.
I believe completely in the possibility for someone to change, but jealousy is one of the harder traits to treat and it takes a long time in therapy (often a couple years or more) for the jealous individual to understand what causes the jealousy and to learn how to let it go. Ever notice a pillow propped up on a couch that has a nifty little proverb stitched or needlepointed on it?
He'll get disappointed when you can't hang out and will probably kick up a stink about it. Love goggles certainly are blinding but take this reality check and reevaluate your relationship.
Perhaps you think it's cute he's protective over you. You're probably thinking of excuses for why your partner does the things above and how it's fine.
You think it's good because he's driven and work-oriented.
He probably doesn't have any other interests, so that's the only thing he can talk about it.
(I wish I were kidding.) This is a serious red flag (showing no respect for boundaries) and you need to walk the other direction when you see it early in a dating relationship.
