2. Low self respect!
It is somehow the total opposite of the above point, but it gets super annoying when it comes your way. There are a few people who always talk about themselves as if they are not in good position and it makes you feel sorry about them. They behave as if they are some victims who are always in low position. If you continue to be with people like them, then you will end up trying to make them feel better about themselves all the time!
3. Over sharing!
There is no point of sharing too intimate details with the person you are dating on the very first date. You should take some things slow to enjoy it at an ease. Sharing something too intimate too soon is not at all a healthy dating behaviour. Some things should be preserved for some future conversations also.

4. Constantly talking about their exes!
If you talk about your ex on the first date, then it’s fine but not for more than a minute or two. Dragging about them is of no good use and time. If someone is blabbering constantly about their ex, then you can guess that they are still not over them.
5. Too emotionally dependent!
It’s good to conclude whether somebody is into you and you are into them. But, when this exceeds over some level which is not acceptable for you, then you should rethink about taking the relation forward. Constantly messaging you and calling you, picking out of nowhere fights just to grab your attention will keep you annoyed all the time. Either discuss it with your date or just call it off!

6. ” I’ve not technically broken up with my boyfriend/girlfriend ”
Take a note of the word ”technically”. They should make a point clear whether they have technically broken off or not. If you notice this at any time of the date, then you could be sure that they are not ready to break up now, but they still want to give it a try with you.
7. No attention to their appearance!
When you go out for a date, you make sure that you look presentable and good. You obviously will wear something neat and tidy to look good. But, if you notice that your date doesn’t care about how they look even on the first date, and then take it as a huge red flag! [ Read: 12 ‘Must Know’ Dating Rules For Classy Men And Women ]

It might be mistaken for low self esteem, but the only difference is that your date always wants you to help her in anything they want. The red flags signs include a range of asking for money, or always asking you to take them out from a bad situation. This will keep you in distress in future. You should take a wise decision and just walk away. [ Read: Simple Dating Tips That Will Actually Work For You ]
10. Always want to be the centre of attention
Some people only exist to hear their own voice! They just don’t care what other say or what views other holds. It’s always ”me, me and me” for them. You could not even think of interrupting when they are talking to you.
11. People whose lives seem so interesting!
There are people whose lives may seem so much interesting. But can you believe a person whose income is not too dreamy and he takes around 6 tours abroad in one year. This is just plain delusional. You should definitely quit before you get ahead! [ Read: 10 Dating Love Lessons 80’S Teen Movie Can Teach You ]
12. Treats their phone as their first love!
This gets weird when your date is busier with their phone as much as they are interested in talking to you. Nobody wishes to be in a relationship with somebody who is so badly connected with their phone.
13. Too touchy!
When it comes to touching, then both the parties should give their consent. Only on the basis of one party it can’t go ahead. It usually starts with the hands and then they can take it further if they want to. But, if your date already has their hands on you, then they probably want to take the relationship at a pace you are not comfortable with.
Make a decent move after considering all the signs. We definitely don’t want you to regret as the relationship progresses!
