New relationships are supposed to be all about basking in the presence of the new person in your life. However, as we do this, we shouldn’t get too wrapped up in it so we maintain our vision of reality. Because we are so distracted with the one we love that we don’t even see that there might be new relationship red flags to watch out for.
You Might Be Mismatched If You See These New Relationship Red Flags
In most cases, every new relationship is blissful. There’s nothing wrong with that if you and your date are a good match. But, if the situation is otherwise, you might be allowing the honeymoon phase to get to you too much. For instance, try if you can spot the following new relationship red flags:
1. Criticizing Your Hobbies
Does your new partner question what you like to do? In a relationship, you need to have freedom to do what you want. But, you also have to balance everything out. This means that you should never be spending too much of your time in doing your hobby.
2. You Need To Change
Is your new partner always telling you that you have to change? Or do you feel like he or she is forcing you to be someone you are not? Then, it’s a big red flag. No one should force you to change. They can encourage you, but changing should be your personal choice.
3. Always Guilt-Tripping
It’s a bummer when you feel guilty every time you cancel on your date. Let’s say you already made plans on Friday, but you had to cancel because there was an emergency at work. If you have a valid reason, your partner shouldn’t be making you feel guilty all the time.
How Many New Relationship Red Flags Have You Observed?
Remember that you have to adjust your perspective to make it more realistic. Once you’ve done this and you don’t see any red flags, then that’s wonderful. But, if you think that you can’t adjust your perspective correctly, try asking your friends. They will tell you what you need to hear.
