24 Men Reveal Red Flags Women Should Watch Out For While Dating

When you’re looking for a partner, you need to be careful. You don’t want to end up with someone who is beneath you, so make sure you’re careful when it comes to your standards. Here are some red flags that you should watch out for when dating, according to men:

“Lack of intellectual curiosity. They don’t need to be super-smart, but they should be interested in the world around them, in ideas, and most of all, in you.” — NEYO8uw11qgD0J

“If you have to defend him with a phrase like, ‘Oh, but when he’s just with me, it’s different’ or ‘But you don’t see him when he is nice…’ Who he is when he’s at his worst is still the guy you’re dating…and if all your friends see or hear about is the worst? It’s not something they aren’t seeing, it’s something you aren’t recognizing.” — BruteSentiment

“Doesn’t know when to stop or respect your boundaries. This doesn’t have to be physical, but also emotional.” — Stoopidee

“Someone who can’t accept your accomplishments. Don’t be with someone who feels the need to compete with you or can’t accept that you’ve accomplished your goals. My wife is a doctor. I’m a fucking idiot! I asked her what made her want to marry me. She said, ‘You took time to praise my accomplishments and made me feel important—all while struggling yourself.’” — OLPopsAdelphia

“What I call ‘alpha intellectuals’ – those that have to constantly show how intelligent they are, how they are the most knowledgeable on a subject, and they always have to be right. It’s like their identity depends on people recognizing they are smart.” — jfdonohoe

“Poor communication, not telling you when something serious bothers him. It’s normal to be shy and worried about voicing concerns, but if he’s actively denying that something’s wrong when it IS, that would just cause more issues and general confusion. In a relationship, you should encourage one another to be open about the way you feel. Someone who purposely doesn’t disclose important information with you doesn’t have your best interest at heart.” — Bigbootyomoletlover

“Disrespect disguised as jokes. Comedy can be a little hurtful but an obvious insult followed by I was just joking is a coward’s method to avoid confrontation.” — RoyGBIV45

“If he’s ‘getting out of a relationship’ while trying to start one with you, you will never be sure when he begins one with someone else while still in one with you.” — xmagusx

“This goes for all genders really, but anyone who thinks they have the right to ‘punish’ you for perceived wrongdoings is a waste of time imo. That’s not how equals resolve issues.” — KrtekJim

“A good yard stick is to look at your relationship from the outside: If your sister/best friend/mother’s boyfriend did X to her, would you be concerned? Self-awareness is important because sometimes you’re too close to the situation to see it objectively.” — Deadlifts_n_Riffs

“How much his mom controls his life.” — WhiskeyPorno420

“If his last girlfriend tries to earnestly warn you, she may actually be warning you.” — RichardBonham

“Avoid that guy who’s in a relationship with you who still plays hard to get.” — BaconBeary

“Initially? A failure to listen during conversation and subsequent failure to ask you about anything important to you.” — BandicootPlastic5444

“Very nice to you but not others, has a problem with you going out or hanging out with friends. If he has to be with you every time you do etc RUN.” — OverPot

“If he can’t handle a conversation about your period, or can’t go buy you pads or tampons… He is ignorant of basic biology and not a fully functioning adult male. Not saying it’s a dealbreaker maybe you can educate him. But if not, big red flag for a serious long term relationship or marriage.” — thesugarat

“Hundred percent, if you are feeling unwanted and unloved, and are thinking about breaking up, and then you try to bring it up and all of a sudden he starts being everything you wanted, to only go back to being distant and cold. You have yourself a love bomber. It’s awful. The amount of people who fall for this is sad. Because some people just get caught in this vicious cycle not knowing it’s even happening.” — Insanefox32

“When I worked at KFC, there was a girl whose boyfriend would stay parked outside the door the during her entire shift. That is not something I’ve seen commonly and it’s a HUGE red flag.” — LobotomistPrime

“Immediately shutting down when you try to discuss anything ‘deep’ or potentially problematic in the relationship.” — chethedestroyer

“Anyone that keeps saying they are a nice or good person.” — mannersmakethdaman

“Guys who give girls (especially attractive ones) special treatment but are aloof or curt to other guys.” — astarisaslave

“Men that take kindness as weakness. All too common.” — Delayedknee

“Be careful of men who blame every failed relationship on the ex. Not only will you be the next bad story, but he likely doesn’t have accountability.” — sexylegs0123456789

“Low Uber passenger ratings.” — ThisIsMyUsername789
