When the Cupid strikes you with his arrow, it becomes almost next to impossible to be objective. Your partner’s flaws turn into adorable little quirks, and you turn blind to every single wrong thing he does. But that is not exactly wise; especially if you intend to marry him and spend the rest of your life with him. Here are 15 signs you should watch out for him in because if he does these regularly, it means it’s time to head to splitsville.
1. He’s Suspicious
All relationships are built on trust, and if your boyfriend just doesn’t trust you, there’s trouble. He’d be the kind of guy who checks your phone when you’re not around, even though you’ve never given him a reason not to trust you. So it’s best you stay away from him.
2. He Doesn’t Like Animals
If that’s your guy, leave him and run right now. Literally. People who do not like animals generally lack kindness and empathy. You do not want to raise a family with a man like that as he will not prove to be a good father figure.
3. He Doesn’t Listen To Anything You Say
Every relationship has certain ground rules that couples stick to in order to make their relationship work. If your guy displays an absolute disregard for such rules, chances are he doesn’t care much, and neither does he respect the relationship.
4. He’s A Promise Breaker
Promise breakers are the kind who are in a relationship just for the sake of fun and do not really care about your feelings. So if he repeatedly breaks all the promises he makes to you, you should break up with him.
5. He Doesn’t Prioritize You
Your partner is supposed to come through for you when you need, he should pay attention to what you say, and he should want to spend time with you. If he never prioritizes you, he doesn’t want to be with you so don’t be with him.
6. He Believes He’s Flawless
Confidence is good, but overconfidence is a buzzkill (and even a relationship-kill). If he thinks he’s perfect and always right, he’s never going to bow down even when it’s needed. Don’t give into his ego.
7. He’s Always Making Excuses
Once in a while, it’s alright to let things slide and be okay if things don’t go as planned. But if your man is constantly making excuses and canceling out on you, means he’s avoiding you because he’s just not that into you.
8. He Lives In The Past
Bringing up old fights and arguments is a very petty thing to do, and it shows that he’s the kind of guy who keeps grudges. Plus, this way, he would also be inviting negativity into your relationship.
9. He Doesn’t Talk To You
If he stops talking to you whenever the two of you fight and refuses to sort out the issue, he is bad news. Also, if half of the times, he’s not listening to what you’re saying, then it means he’s just not bothered.
10. He’s A Liar
Do not forgive lies so easily because if he has done it once (and gotten away with it), he will do it again. You won’t ever be able to trust him, and he will eventually end up hurting you so save yourself.
11. He’s Clingy
Just like too aloof is bad, too clingy is bad too. Such a guy will not give you even a moment alone and will have a say in practically everything you do. He might even be obsessive. Choose someone who’s more individualistic instead.
12. He Criticizes His Family
If he cannot belong to his family, he will not belong to you. Parents play a major role in your upbringing, and they make tons of sacrifices for you. If he has no sense of gratefulness for that, he’s not worth your time.
13. He’s A Smoker
Smoking is an addiction. And if he’s unwilling to give up his condition, it shows the weakness of character. It’ll be easier for a guy like him to fall prey to other vices later on and you do not want that to be an example in front of your future children.
14. He’s Immature
If he loves to play the blame game and refuses to take responsibility for his action and word, he’s simply immature. Instead of trying to be patient with him, move on and find somebody new because he will not be able to handle responsibilities well. Smoking is a personal choice for sure. But if it’s at the cost of a health risk, then it does become a crucial parameter.
15. He Abuses
This kind of a guy is a clear no-no. If he raises his hand on you even once, storm out and never look back again. Such men are beasts and worth nobody’s time. Even if it’s emotional abuse, you should not tolerate it.
In the end, relationships are not about settling for someone whom you’re not even sure will treat you right. So if he starts flashing any of these red signals, you need to find someone else.
