Red flags on online dating

Try and make your date as cool and unique as you are, you beautiful, shining snowflake! Your cards should be separated into two piles: PERKS and RED FLAGS.With the exception of beer stains, rips, and folds, your hand will look something like this.

Relationships rarely end because of the fault of only one member of the couple, so anyone who speaks badly about an ex on a date lacks insight into why the relationship really failed.

It’s natural to share some basic details of your life and to ask your date some basic details about his or hers, but going any deeper should be reserved for people whom you know well and trust. If your date talks about what he or she likes sexually or asks what you like on one of the first dates, your date just might be a sex addict.

(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.

If it’s one of the first few dates, the questions asked and comments shared should be fairly generic.

At this point, each of you is trying to get enough information quickly to determine whether there is sufficient interest, attraction and similarity to support having a full-fledged relationship.

In an ideal online dating world, the undesirables state their case from the get-go and you would know immediately to swipe left or ignore.
