NEW YORK, NEW YORK – APRIL 10: Two people kiss on a rowboat in Central Park on April 10, 2021 in New York City. After undergoing various shutdown orders for the past 12 months the city is currently in phase 4 of its reopening plan, allowing for the reopening of low-risk outdoor activities, movie and television productions, indoor dining as well as the opening of movie theaters, all with capacity restrictions.

Before I met my fiancé, I think I experienced just about every first date red flag that there were.  The guy who checked my nails, because he liked someone with a good manicure.  The guy who picked me up and cracked my back or how about the guy who licked my face??  Yep – all true.

In my effort to save you the humiliation/time/mental anguish that I went through, here are some red flags.  Remember red flags = run.  Not gather them into a bouquet!



First Date RED Flags (I could add a lot more to this list!)

1. Talking about exes on the first date

2. Showing up late without valid reasons

3. Unresponsive or poor at communication

4. Non-committal about plans for a second date

5. Possessive or jealous on the first date

6. Critical or negative attitude

7. Unreasonably pushy or aggressive

8. Showing  passivity  or non-assertiveness

9. Guarded or secretive behavior

10. Overly focused on physical appearance or material possessions
