Dating 1010

dating 1010

A couple weeks ago, xoJane had a terrific Google Hangout where we talked about red flags in dating. Why? Because I might as well rename my dating profile Mandy “Red Flag” Stadtmiller.

But that’s OK, I like my red flags. They have a wonderfully vibrant fuschia color to them and look quite stunning in the silhouette of mid-summer moonlight.

Anyway, despite my potential disqualification from being able to talk about this — on account of being so flaggy myself — these are 10 that for me spell a strong likelihood of certain relationship doom down the road. (And please substitute “she” for “he” on all my little flags below as the situation is fit.)

This is big for me as honesty is one of the most important parts of a relationship. In my experience a white lie as seemingly inconsequential as listing a distorted age in an online dating profile can spell bad news if transparency is important to you.

Oh good God, pick a date and activity already. I had a cognitive psychologist teach me this trick several years ago, and I’ve never looked back. Helps separate the men from the boys, and it’s awesome.

Don’t even get me started. I once had a guy tell me what specific arm-toning exercises he was going to teach me after we slept together for the first time. Lovely.

I love to be teased, especially if the person is funny. But I think we are all savvy enough by now to know what a “neg” is. That is, a compliment that really is a dig disguised to make you insecure. Like, “You have the cutest little overbite.” Blargh. I hate this crap. Not only is it cowardly, it’s obnoxious.
