Red flags for dating someone
When you first meet a prospect, they don’t factor into your life much — not to mention, they’re usually one of many dating prospects in your bubble.It’s a really different romantic landscape than ever before.” But I have a different take on situations like this, which stems from my experience with the modern dating landscape and a general distaste for classic advice. Once upon a time, I thought I could conquer dating like I’d conquered all my other major life goals. Yet none of this resulted in a relationship that felt right.If the goal was to find a lasting relationship, then I needed some rules by which to navigate and find it. With that, I did a complete 180 on my “if, then” approach to dating.Daters tend to put themselves first early on, especially if they are not actively looking for a relationship.
So if something pops up to prevent a date — like an illness, a work problem — it’s easy to let potential dates fall by the wayside.
