Phrases People Consider Automatic Red Flags

As much as we try not to judge people, sometimes they give us a warning signal we just can’t ignore. A Reddit thread gets into this by asking, “What is a phrase someone says that is an instant red flag?” It seems people have a lot of thoughts on this, as more than 16-thousand have responded in just one day.

These are the blazing, blaring, waving red flag phrases we can’t ignore, according to Reddit:

  • “I'm brutally honest, that's just who I am”
  • “We are like a family here.”
  • “I'm a nice guy”
  • “You have to earn my respect.”

  • “Emotional abuse isn't real”
  • “Anyone who posts and uses the hashtags Namaste or grateful heart usually turn out to be gigantic entitled a-holes”
  • “‘I’m an empath.’ Every single time someone says that they later turn out to be anything but. Real empaths don’t go around advertising.”
