Although we encourage that you focus on the positive things, there are still things you should look out for that screams, “Yikes!”
It’s natural to wish for a perfect relationship. It’s not wrong to look for your dream guy or gal. If you don’t set any standards or ideals, it may lead to bad decisions regarding companions. On the other hand, if you’re already seeing someone, you should not be complacent yet.
Just to give you a heads up; you’ll never entirely know someone until you’ve settled down together. Some people don’t reveal their true selves until months or years after marriage. How do you know if they’re the right one to marry? Well, we’re here to help you with that. We’ve listed down fourteen things that your significant other should not be doing to you.
For example, being overly jealous. It’s natural for your partner to get protective because they care for you. Jealousy is also understandable in most cases, but if they get that way over nothing and prohibits you from seeing your friends, then they’re a tyrant and not your lover.
Sign Number One: He Doesn’t Let You Meet Up With Your Friends
If he/she restricts you from seeing other people other than him, especially your friends, then it may be time to find someone else. I mean, seriously? They’re not your dad, and you’re not five years old. Everyone needs their personal space and time, and you have the right to enjoy with your friends.
Sign Number Two: They Always Wants You To Look The Way They Want
Don’t wear that! Wear this! Wear your hair like that! No, not those shoes! Okay, make them stop already. If they dictate what you should and should not look like, then you’re better off without them. You should always be yourself and go with whatever style you love and are comfortable with.
Sign Number Three: A Bad Temper
Think twice about marrying someone with a horrible temper. When they get angry over nothing and hurts you physically, verbally or emotionally, it’s best to call it quits.
Sign Number Four: Lack of Interest
Everyone is passionate about something, and you deserve someone who will support you in your hobbies and your dreams. A person who isn’t interested in knowing about their partner’s aspirations and passions is not worth your time.
Sign Number Five: They Don’t Like Your Friends and Family
They have to know that your life does not consist of them alone. Before you even met, you had your friends and family by your side. So dating a person who is rude to the other people you care about may lead to a very toxic relationship.
Sign Number Six: No Friends
Yay! More time to spend with me! Not really. In some cases, lack of friends may suggest being introverted or extremely shy. In that context, it’s okay because you’re helping them come out of their shell. However, if the reason is that of their attitude or other issues, maybe it’s best to think twice.
Sign Number Seven: They Humiliate You
Having a good laugh with your partner is very important. But if they embarrass you in front of people, that’s not okay. You need to stand up for yourself and leave them.
Sign Number Eight: Control Freak
They can’t dictate what you should and should not do. They don’t need to control your actions, your decisions, and how you spend your time. Granted, you need to spend time with your partner, but to impose restrictions on you is crossing the line.
Sign Number Nine: Lies, lies, lies
Honesty is vital in any relationship. Both parties must always tell the truth and, as much as possible, stay faithful to their promises. But if your partner keeps lying about even the littlest things, you should not tolerate it.
Sign Number Ten: No Respect
You’ll get to know more about a person when you see how they treat their families and friends. If they’re rude and don’t respect their parents and other members of their family, there’s a big chance that they’ll treat you the same way.
Sign Number Eleven: Respect is Key
Again, being respectful is an essential quality if you’re looking for someone to be with. Showing respect does not only apply to family and friends but other people as well, such as service staff, and even strangers. If they’re disrespectful to others, then it won’t be long until they disrespect you too.
Sign Number Twelve: Moral or Physical Humiliation
Never let anyone dull your sparkle, as they say. More importantly, if someone, even your partner, brings you down with physical or verbal abuse, it’s best to get those people out of your life.
Sign Number Thirteen: It’s All in the Past
If they’re still hung up on their ex, maybe you should start thinking about the sincerity of their words and actions. Are they only dating you to forget the past or are they genuinely into you?
Sign Number Fourteen: Something Feels Off
If unconsciously, you feel that there’s something wrong about your choice of partner, maybe you should listen to your inner thoughts. Usually, your instincts are right.
