When you’re dating, it can be difficult to recognize these ten less obvious red flags. Watch the video to learn more!

It’s easy to recognize big red flags that are clearly waving in your face when you’re dating, like signs of verbal, emotional, physical or sexual abuse.

But what about the less obvious red flags? In this video, I share the more subtle red flags that could save you heartache and pain if you recognize them early on in the dating process.

Why We Ignore These Subtle Red Flags

• They’re not obvious during the early days of dating
• The person is intentionally hiding their true self
• We see our date through rose-colored glasses during the infatuation stage of dating
• We don’t trust our own intuition and judgment
• We’re afraid of calling the person out
• We have poor boundaries or low self-esteem
• We believe this is as good as it gets
• We’ve been raised to minimize red flags as harmless

10 Less Obvious Red Flags

  1. They are too busy to date consistently
  2. They talk about their crazy exes a lot
  3. They trauma bond with you
  4. They are jealous/don’t trust you
  5. Their home is a mess
  6. They mismanage money
  7. They flirt with others and deny that it means anything
  8. The relationship progresses too quickly
  9. They don’t communicate consistently
  10. They lack emotional intimacy

Have you ever overlooked any of these less obvious red flags? If so, you’re not alone. The good news is that knowledge is power, and the faster you recognize these signs, the better. If you do notice any of them show up early on in the dating process, talk about it. Get curious and see what they say. It might be a misunderstanding. They might be willing to amend their behavior. If so, keep dating them. If they’re in denial or make YOU the problem, walk away with your head held high, knowing you got out before you got in too deep.
