There are some things you shrug off early in a relationship. But it’s important to be careful, because some of these things can be big indicators that a relationship with this person isn’t meant to last. There are signs early on in a relationship that your new boo may not be good long-term material. Pay close attention to these five things.
- Using a potential breakup as a threat. If they think that breaking up on the spot is an OK solution, that doesn’t show signs of maturity, even if they claim they don’t mean it.
- An inability to express their feelings calmly. Sure, you have small talk, but have you ever gotten deeper in a convo with them, or do they shrug things off or change the subject when you try?
- Still behaving as though they’re single. They make their own decisions, don’t involve you, don’t ask what you want, and do the same things they did while they were single.
- A lack of growth. Your relationship isn’t getting more serious, you’re still stuck in the same situation where you started. Relationships should always be growing.
