You think to yourself, Sometimes some of the most “obvious” red flags are completely ignored and the consequence is a broken heart.
The thing is, a lot of women are conditioned from a young age to accept these red flags as normal. I don’t care if he lies about his age, or if he conveniently forgets to tell you important things (like a business meeting…).
If your man seems to have sailed through life without ever hitting the rough waters that rock the rest of us, beware.
Privileged chaps tend to suffer from a sense of entitlement (read: bratty-boy syndrome), so he may believe that the rules don't apply to him.
Sometimes you just get a gut feeling that something isn’t right…
Maybe he isn’t showing you the level of respect you expect from a man or maybe he completely ignores your boundaries and personal space.
They have so many of the same interests, love everything you love, wine and dine you, they can’t get enough of you, more than likely it is the most romantic relationship you have ever had. He wants to know everything about you, is very interested in learning about your childhood, your hopes and dreams, your past relationships.
True love does not fade the longer you date, it grows stronger.
Do not move in because you don’t want to lose him, if he is as sweet as he pretends to be waiting will not be a problem. The biggest number one without fail sign of a narcissist is how they sweep you off your feet at the beginning of the relationship.
How many red flags do you need in order to run away and save yourself? Time will tell, his mask will drop, that is why he is pushing for commitment, he wants to hook you before you see the real person under the facade.
By themselves they don’t scream “Run for cover” , especially if you have no experience with a narcissist, but if you have half a dozen of these red flags you need to run away as fast as you can and if you can’t bring yourself to dump him because you think he is an exception to the rule and you don’t believe me; at least slow things down.
