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… 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.

You get a text that seems like it was meant for someone else."Baby" is code for "I think wearing puka shell necklaces is cool, and no matter where we go, I'm secretly going to do coke in the bathroom."12.Next thing they know they wind up stuck in a relationship with a girl who is nothing but trouble.To make sure this doesn’t happen to you keep an eye out for the following red flags when dating.He’ll get disappointed when you can’t hang out and will probably kick up a stink about it. “Men mess up and then we feel badly about it.” One of my best friends in graduate school used to say this.
