Recognizing red flags in dating


If this happens, don’t fall into the cycle with them. We are all way too attached to our phones to miss messages for days.

Maybe for a few hours during the work week or if they are doing some activity that keeps them from their phone. Check out the entire Gen Why series and other videos on Facebook and the Bustle app across Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.

But if you feel like you are obligated to check in with someone you just met and are not in a relationship with... This is likely the sign of someone who is either insecure or controlling. Guys will start to text you, so it will look like they are replying, and then, they'll intentionally set their phone down for an extended period of time.

It's a PUA (pick-up artist) strategy to "neg" you over text.

Another sign you’re texting a passive aggressive person is that they just go silent on you as punishment for not replying fast enough or not saying what they want to hear.

Let’s be honest: adopting a “no lies, ever” policy only results in hurt feelings. However, little lies such as the whereabouts of your beau or the identity of the mysterious caller on the cell phone should send off a warning bell inside your mind.Today, so many of our relationships begin over text, and while the advent of the internet and dating apps means it's much easier to meet a ton of people, we have also had to learn a whole new dating skill set, including being able to recognize red flags while texting someone to help screen for weirdos.Knowing someone’s toxic texting "tell" can save you a lot of time and potential heartache.Do they always seem to want to know where you are and what you're up to?At first, this may seem sweet and like they have a genuine interest.But someone who is regularly "missing" your messages needs to be given a miss. If you are putting in all the work and effort to initiate the conversation or keep it going, you're better off just letting them go. The sooner you recognize the problem and deal with it, the sooner you will be available to meet someone new and better for you.
