Figuring out that your girlfriend isn’t the one sounds like it should be a no-brainer, but plenty of guys get it wrong all the time. When you're in love, oftentimes it’s difficult to recognize the underlying signs that you're dealing with a toxic person. Next time around, if you aren’t sure if you should listen to that nagging feeling inside of you, maybe this list of red flags to look for in women will come in handy.
1. She doesn't get along with others
If she doesn't have many friends and is constantly fighting with family and other people, it might be a sign that your relationship won't last long.
2. She has poor hygiene
As a man seeking out the right woman, you don't have the time or the psychology degree to figure out why she lets her finger nails get and stay dirty, avoids shaving anywhere, displays unkempt hair, has bad breath and foul odor from her intimate areas. Think about it: if she neglects herself during the dating phase--the phase when you're trying to impress at all costs--imagine how bad it will get if you settle down with her.
3. She 's emotionally unstable
This type of woman has the emotional age of a young child and her emotions ricochet from wild, joyous passion to utmost sorrow. If she does things that are completely crazy, lacking rational thought and she takes actions with no thought about consequences, it's time to cut ties as soon as possible.
4. You catch her in lies
Lying is a big red flag. If your girlfriend lies about her whereabouts, background, age, health situation, the identity of the mysterious caller on her cell phone and is always receiving texts from other guys, consider the prospect that she is playing you big time.
5. She has "Daddy Issues"
This is often a sad result of a woman's poor relationship with her father and modern-day divorce statistics. These women grow up expecting the worst from men and blow up over minor screw-ups because your mistake reminds her of her father’s poor parenting. They also crave attention and enjoy the rush of developing sexual tension from any and every male figure and have tons of emotional baggage.
6. She loves to party (without you)
This type of woman can’t figure out why you would be upset at the idea of waiting up for her while she is out partying all night with women at bars, drinking herself into a stupor. A woman like this maybe carefree and wild at first; however, once you take a closer look, you'll realize that her entire life is a party and most nights will end with her puking in your car.
7. She has no goals or ambition
When a woman doesn't have her own direction in life, it's more likely that she will be over-dependent on the relationship to keep her afloat. Once you realize that she has no goals whatsoever, no income and cannot or will not hold a job, it's time for you to run for the hills.
8. She's extremely jealous and obsessive
If she feels threatened when you discuss your previous relationships, gets upset every time you try to be cordial with another female, and refuses to accept that you have female friends, get away from her and don't look back.
9. She is overly flirtatious with other men
It is perfectly normal for your girlfriend to like the way other guys look; however, if she is ogling every man that passes by, constantly touches other guys arms or laughs suggestively, something is wrong, and it’s not you.
10. She lacks intelligence
Looks can take you a long way and she might look amazing in everything that she wears, but once a conversation gets going and you realize she's intellectually challenged, you've got serious problems, my friend.
