Another added, “My ex was so insecure when I downloaded tik tok (this was when it was changing musically to tik tok or around that time) he tried so hard to get me to delete it. Tik tok man. I still scroll it daily and also dumped his ass.”

“When nothing is ever their fault, it’s always someone else’s.” Someone else added. “I was raised by this. If you find someone like this, RUN AWAY.”

A second said, “That’s one thing I really try to do. If I’m wrong, I try to own the mistake and admit it.”

One person shared, “My guess would be not having a close friend because I know people view my lack of solid friendships as a huge red flag. I just got held up with having a kid to take care of while going to school and working, both full-time, which turned into me working full-time and raising two toddlers by myself.” said one person.”

“I can tell you why that is an issue for me, and I have a pretty good group of friends and busy social life. I’ve dated women who didn’t have many friends. One on one, it was fine. But then I realized I was becoming their only outlet for social interaction. And that wasn’t fun.”

Not Taking Your Dreams Seriously

“Underrated. My gf does not support my decision to study computer science because now I will become a nerd’. Makes me kind of sad.”

“People who treat wait staff and service people like they’re below them,” said another.

Bring Up Past Relationships

“Any kind of trash-talking their exes.”

Another said. “I think constantly mentioning what his/her ex was doing and how their relationship was. I did not get it at first and thought it was normal but I once understood it was a red flag when I got dumped for no reason.”
