When we’re in a relationship with someone new, we only seem to focus only on the good qualities, while conveniently turning a blind eye on the potential red flags. It’s these qualities good or bad, that will make or break a new relationship.
Here are seven most common characteristics and tendencies to look out for in a new romantic partner:
1. Mr. Looker
Regardless, where you’re or what you do, if someone cute passes by your spouse, he will look her, more than once. Suddenly, you start to feel angry and insecure. You tell it to your man, and explain to him how it affects you, makes him appear less committed to you, and you find this behavior acceptable to you. So, does this mean that you should break up with him? Not until he keeps doing it.
2. Ms. Unavailable
Your girlfriend is fun-loving kind of gal. You dated her for a few weeks but noticed that she always loves to hang out with a lot of her friends, even when you’re with her. This makes it difficult for you to connect with her on a one-to-one basis. She also avoids having a quality, engaging conversation with you as she feels uncomfortable. You tried your best to turn her around but failed. So, cut her loose.
3. Mr. Control
You like him. He’s relaxed, confident, and successful. But, there is a problem. He told you that he likes to be in control. He always orders the dinners; he takes you to places he wants, he tells you when you will leave the party, etc. In short, he doesn’t ask you about your opinion regarding the relationship; he calls all the shots. Is this something you can deal with? We will say break up before this whole relationship goes out of control.
4. Ms. Freedom
She’s 30 and still single. She’s full of fun, smart and spontaneous. You feel lucky, but there’s a catch. She told you she’s never been in a relationship for more than six months. So, should you keep dating her? We would yes. Maybe she’s a late bloomer, and we all sincerely believe everyone should be given a chance to let people who they really are.
5. Ms. Flirty
She’s beautiful, and she likes you. But, she's never satisfied by your attention and compliments. She craves for attention from other guys. You feel vulnerable, but we will ask you to give her a chance. This type of baggage is very common and not difficult to resolve it if you’re willing, to be honest and patient with her.
6. Mr. Cheapskate
Who ever told you are savvy with money, has never met your boyfriend. He only pays using coupons, buy things discounts, and proud that he never paid full price. Could this cause trouble for you in the future? Yes, if you’re spender, while he is a saver. If you both are money savvy, we can see any issues here.
7. Mr. Dominator
You seem to like his big personality but noticed that he has the tendency to dominate most conversations. For example, you both go a vacation, and he only tells about what a great time he had with his friends, without giving any chance to share your story. If you don’t his behavior tiring, believe us, you will one day. So, break up before it’s too late!
If you’re seeing someone new, look for all these qualities and deal-breakers, in your partners, if you want to be in loving, committed relationship.
