We all think we are in a perfect relationship and that nothing can ever go wrong in our relationship until reality slaps us hard on our face. Not that one has to be a pessimist and enter a relationship thinking it’s going to fall apart but, at the same time, it’s important to not turn a blind eye towards everything that happens in your relationship.

Sometimes we tend to miss all the red flags that suggest something isn’t right in our relationship, and all in the name of love. However, love doesn’t ask you to go blind, instead, it gives you the power to analyze situations better and be a stronger version of yourself.

But the human tendency of ignoring all the red flags once you feel a bit of happiness can’t be ignored. But do you know how wrong this is? Well, here we’ll tell you about some of the red flags in your relationships that you should never ignore.

1. Physical abuse

Any kind of physical abuse should never be ignored and should always be taken seriously. If you feel that you are being physically tortured, or that you are physically scared of your partner you should know it is a warning sign for you and signifies that you need to get out of this abusive relationship sooner than later.

2. Emotional or verbal abuse

People may still pay attention to physical abuse but they still tend to ignore the fact that they are being emotionally or verbally abused in a relationship. If you feel that you don’t feel emotionally secure with your partner it is surely a big red flag and you should never ignore it.

3. Over possessiveness

Possessiveness may seem cute until it turns out to be toxic. If your partner gets jealous sometimes that’s okay but if that jealousy or over possessiveness turns out to be hostile, dangerous, or even humiliating at times it’s wrong and toxic. It could really affect you and the relationship in many negative ways so, it’s always wise to pay attention to this red flag of your relationship. 

4. They never listen to you

We usually tend to ignore this trait of our partner. If our partner doesn’t listen to us we dismiss it saying that it is a part of their nature. However, you should never ignore the fact that your partner has no interest in listening to what you have to say. Your opinion matters to them only if it matches them otherwise your words don’t hold any value. If this is the case in your relationship you should see this as a clear red flag.

5. They try to push your boundaries

If your partner is not respectful towards your boundaries it is surely not a joke but something quite serious. If they make you feel bad for having your boundaries or even denying some things, they can really be toxic for you. Having your boundaries are not at all wrong and nobody should be allowed to make you feel bad for having them. So, if your partner does all this it is surely a big red flag in your relationship.

6. They avoid serious conversations

You should never ignore the fact that your partner tries to get away from all the serious conversations as this is something that could really be a big problem in the long run. You and your partner should realize that relationship is not all about the happy times but also the tough times, it is about how you get and stick through all these times and still end up together.

7. They put you down

Your partner should be someone who is your support system, they should never be someone who isn’t happy in seeing you succeed. They should not put you down but rather help you grow. So, if that is not the case you should not ignore it and see it as a red flag in your relationship.

Remember, all these red flags in a relationship signify that you are not in a healthy relationship and that it can always turn out be a toxic one, So, keep your eyes and ears open and make the right choice based on facts, not on assumptions.
