1. Lack of respect for boundaries: If someone does not respect your boundaries, it is a red flag that they are not interested in a healthy and respectful relationship. This can manifest in various ways, such as not respecting your need for space, ignoring your requests or not taking “no” for an answer.
2. Lack of empathy: If someone is not able to empathize with your feelings or struggles, it is a red flag that they are not capable of truly connecting with you emotionally. This can lead to a one-sided relationship where you are always the one giving and they are always taking.
3. Controlling or manipulative behavior: If someone is controlling or manipulative in your relationship, it is a red flag that they are not interested in a healthy partnership. They may try to control your actions, thoughts, or feelings, and use guilt, threats, or other tactics to get what they want.
4. Abusive behavior: If someone displays any signs of physical, emotional, sexual or psychological abuse, it is a red flag that you should never ignore. It’s essential for your safety, mental and emotional well-being to get out of such a relationship as soon as possible.
