1. Nothing is Ever Their Fault

“When nothing is ever their fault, its 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.”

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.”

One’s view showed some hope. “Ehh not necessarily there are people who are really jealous and know it and actively work to get over it.”

3. Not Having Close Friends

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, 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.”

4. Not Taking Your Dreams Seriously

Many had the same views. “When they don’t take your dreams seriously.” said one. Another added. “When they don’t take you seriously period.”

“Underrated. My gf does not support my decision in studying 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.

6. Bring Up Past Relationships

“Any kind of trash-talking their exes.”
