13 Women Reveal the Biggest Red Flags That They Ignored In Relationships
Most relationships have a honeymoon phase where your new significant other seems to do everything perfectly. That doesn’t mean that he or she is perfect. It just means that we are blinded by love and we simply ignore the red flags staring us in the face.
After time passes, we see the person for who he or she really is. Sometimes those imperfections are not a big deal, but other times we wonder how the relationship managed to last as long as it did.
One Twitter user asked, “What’s the biggest red flag you ever ignored?” She went on to share a red flag from one of her own relationships. “I dated a guy who drank vodka milks. Not white russians. Vodka with ice and whole milk. That’s on me.”

I dated a guy who used to share a single chocolate with his mother in the evening after supper. One chocolate cream and they’d cut it in half. I feel sick just thinking about it.

My dad bought me really nice headphones & I let my ex (bf @ the time) use them. When I went to get them they were on the floor and bent. When I asked what happened he said that bc it was my stuff he didn’t feel he needed to be careful with it since HE didn’t work for it.

I dated a guy whose friends and family joked about how he “got me into the gym like his ex.” As if I didn’t work out before and only worked out to please him. Oh, and he showed me before and after pics of his ex like I had something to look forward to

Nothing. I had to sleep in my tiny car in a random parking lot with these two stupid smelly friends he made me bring and call my mom to admit all of this to get money to get home. Drove all the way back and his mom invited me over “to wait”. Didn’t come back for 3 days.

Also his room was filled with so much junk that his bed was the shortest object in the room and the only thing visible. And he proudly told me about how a possum got in once and he crushed it with his bare foot.

I dated a guy for almost a year whose fridge was broken the entire time we were together. He just couldn’t be bothered to get it fixed. If someone doesn’t even value keeping food in their house, they’re not gonna value you.

And add them on social media (even my friends) and try talking to them and told me that was normal and I was oversensitive. He would talk for hours about how people were mean & jealous of how rich he is (which he’s not Woman shrugging) and laugh at me whenever I had a problem.

My ex pretended he was going to the same college as me but really was just sitting in an apartment playing video games. The con lasted for at least 3 months and his mom was in on it. One day he pretended to leave for class and just waited until I left his apartment to return
