Ever seen an item in a store, thought "this seems cheap, but it's probably fine," and purchased it, only to have it disintegrate the second time you use it? I won't name names, but there are entire retail chains subsisting on this business model. And unfortunately, human beings are also capable of pulling this bait-and-switch tactic in relationships. The motto? Red flags exist for a reason. Listen to them. And also beware of dollar stores.
Someone asked people of Reddit whose spouses didn't show their true colors until after marriage (or later on in the relationship): "were there any red flags that you ignored while dating? If so, what were they?"

There were a million red flags, but I ignored all of them. How they treat literally everyone else will be how they treat you. If they lied to everyone, you can bet they do it to you too. I am an idiot, but now hopefully a wiser idiot. Probably not though. Keep walking into the same brand of rake.
