The red flags, shared through Reddit, ranged from a lover who wanted to install a GPS program on their partner's mobile to the way others spoke about or treated their exes.
One woman was listening to a man talk about how all of his ex girlfriends were crazy, when she interjected to ask what he'd done to make them so angry.'He admitted to me he suspected his girlfriend was cheating,' Reddit user Jenthrowaway4theday wrote, going on to reveal that he exacted revenge by having sex with her younger sister.
'One evening i texted him telling him id had a rough day and felt really down.
To which he then launched into how his day was worse than mine and whined intensely for half an hour.
It’s not just the sex, but it’s the manipulation of them appearing to be normal.
It’s the manipulation of them appearing to be the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
It was the man's girlfriend's reaction that appeared to convince him she was the crazy one, as she sent him angry texts and yelled at him when she found out.'First and last time I ever talked to that guy,' the woman wrote.
According to sex expert Tracey Cox the best way to respond to questions about exes is: 'indifference that's got a kindly edge to it.'She adds: 'Be ultra-aware of people who blame everything on their ex and take no responsibility for their part in the relationship failing.' On user didn't even get as far as face-to-face after he showed his true colors soon enough over text.'I met this guy on Tinder, we texted back and forth for awhile,' she wrote.
Put forth your head and let me crack an egg of knowledge on you. I could go on, but I will leave you advice from my buddy that I should’ve listened to before being stupid enough to date a stripper for over a year: “You bang a stripper, you don’t date them, you f*cking idiot.” For some odd reason, whenever a girl that has mental problems talks about past relationships with abusive ex’s, it always has a story where they were thrown down a flight of stairs.
Whether it’s the holiday season or Valentine’s Day or the magic of 4th of July fireworks, we know it’s the shared moments that are most special.
