Earlier this year, people on Reddit shared relationship green flags (doing chores together, non-sexual compliments, honesty, empathy etc) that signalled their partner was a keeper in a wholesome thread. But now, people on Twitter are recalling RED flags they saw in their exes and ignored them only to regret them later.
what’s the biggest red flag you ever ignored? i’ll start. i dated a guy who drank vodka milks. not white russians. vodka with ice and whole milk. that’s on me.

From irrational jealousy, weird habits like sleeping wearing jeans to very concerning anger management issues, people revealed the red flag and vowed to never put up with them again.
My ex would get mad if I was ever in a bad mood, he told me “if you’re going to act like that you can leave, it’s interfering with my positive energy” Told me I can’t seem him till after my period was gone because he said it “grossed” him out

He asked me for nudes while fully knowing I was at my grandfathers funeral

my ex told me she punched her dog when she got angry and I was just like: yeah she definitely won’t take her anger on me like that!
Spoilers, I was not correct.

She would go silent and cry if I told her I was going to hang out with my friends. If there happened to be girls present at my friends places, she would shame me for it because it was “disrespectful” to be in the presence of other girls without her

She cried when I mentioned my doctor was a girl… I said “yeah, at the doctor’s she fixed my ankle by…” and she looked at me in the middle of the restaurant and said “she?!?!” And I’m confused as hell, but then she starts crying and says she doesn’t want ANY another girl on me

He told me to stop using the word “mansplaining” while mansplaining to me why it was inappropriate and annoying.

On the first and only date, we watched a live feed of his fish tank on his phone. I just sat there and ate my food.😂🍴🤦🏾♀️

She drank a lot of boxed wine on a nightly basis and would get mean. She’d start arguments about things we weren’t even speaking about. then be mad at me the next day for being mad at her because she didn’t remember anything from the night before.

finally, my time to shine. he was once 8 hours late to a date. this was probably our second or third date ever. 8. fucking. hours. I sat around all day waiting on him like a fucking idiot. never again.

I once dated a guy who insisted we keep our relationship a secret. For ten months. That's a whole stadium-sized red fucking BANNER that I just accepted. https://t.co/ZAJLsKSX7T

Let’s hope that in the year 2021 we’re more aware of red flags and cut ties immediately after spotting them instead of brushing them aside.
