It can be a difficult task to judge whether or not the guy you are dating is “the one” for you since modern day dating is a totally different from what dating used to be back in the day. Now, we literally summon strangers from the internet, and in this fast-paced life, we don’t even get enough time to know whether the guy is worth settling with.
While it is important to look for things like charming personality, good sense of humor, and confidence, there are things that you should hope your prospective partner does not have. These are the things that, no matter how good a guy appears, add a permanent blemish to his personality. Let’s take a look at some of them.
He forgets about things that are important to you
Even though you cannot expect him to remember each and every tiny detail about you, he should, at the very least, make an effort to remember things that are important to you. It only shows that he cares about you. Things that are important to you should be important to him as well because ultimately those things are a part of you.
He doesn’t respect your loved ones
It can go only so far if he only respects you but not your loved ones. Someday, he might even stop respecting you. You cannot choose him over your loved ones and it will not work if both cannot stay under the same roof. It’s a big sign that he is not worth settling down with.
He doesn’t trust you
Your relationship is nothing without trust. You need to trust each other to have a long, healthy relationship. Although trust cannot be handed over just like that but if it has been a long time and still he cannot trust you, you should know better than continuing the relationship with him.
He avoids talking about future
There comes a stage in a relationship when you have to know whether you and your partner are on the same page.
If you are already at that stage and your partner is avoiding talking about it, it is a bad enough sign to leave him. It indicates that he doesn’t think of a future with you.
He brings up old fights very often
Every couple has fights, which is not a surprise; but if your significant other never forgets these fights and balls them up to throw at you the next time you fight he is simply not worth it. If you are ready to forgive and forget, so should he.
He doesn’t compromise
The both of you might not agree on everything, and when that happens, you need to figure out a midway to accommodate each other. But if you are the only one compromising and he is getting his way every time, you need to rethink your relationship with him.
He is not over his ex yet
You should always believe in actions rather than the words coming out of a person’s mouth. If he says that he is over his ex but brings her up frequently and compares you to her, he is not over her yet. You cannot expect a future from someone who is stuck in his past.
He makes you uncomfortable in public
How he behaves with you in public is also a big determinant of whether or not he is right for you. Not everyone is comfortable with everything and if he does something to make you uncomfortable in public even after you have told him not to, you should find someone who respects you.
He gets jealous a lot
Watching him get possessive about you is cute to a limit, after that it’s plainly annoying and a big relationship wrecker. It is not fair for him to get jealous of every guy you hang around with. You cannot give up your friends for him.
He doesn’t listen to you
Communication is an important aspect to keep a relationship going. While you are putting all your efforts into communicating with your partner but he would rather prefer watching a football game, you should not stay with him.
You deserve someone who would actually listen to you as it is a basic sign of respect.
Always be on the watch for these bad qualities in the guys you date, and if you get even a slight hint of them, you can consider leaving the guy for good, as you might suffer because of them in future.
