Red flags when dating a guy
Everyone values different things and it’s important to have these conversations and get on the same page.
If he doesn’t want what you want — he doesn’t want the same kind go relationship, doesn’t want kids, doesn’t want to bring religion into the home, doesn’t want to live in a city, etc., then cut your losses before you get in too deep.
It’s a sign he’s jaded, he has angry issues with his ex or he plain doesn’t respect women. He has an ulterior motive; he’s a player, a scammer or serial dater. It’s a sign of insecurity or a red flag of a self-absorbed narcissist. Bottom-line, if a man's message pings your gut, it’s your intuition trying to warn you, this guy may be bad news.
He’s hiding something, maybe a wife or girlfriend, financial problems or a jillion other personal problems.

You aren’t responsible for the entire relationship or his emotional wellbeing.
Conversely, maybe this article made you realize that the guy you’re with is a keeper …
however, you feel like you may be pushing him away.

Or maybe he does really really like you, but the timing is off or he’s dealing with emotional issues and he just can’t give you the commitment you want (or any sort of commitment, really).

He enjoys your company, he’s attracted to you, and he doesn’t have anyone else at the moment so he keeps you around … Well, this might be less of a blow to your ego, but you still need to get away and fast. You can’t force someone into feeling what you want them to feel.
