"He didn't pay for the date!" "He's too chivalrous!" "He lives with his mom!" "He hates his mom!" It's normal to be wary of "red flags" early on in relationships, but often-times having a long list of deal-breakers can cause us to overlook someone who might otherwise be a good match. Some red flags really do spell trouble or disaster down the line—but others might just be a tiny roadblock in an otherwise successful and happy relationship. So be wary, but not too wary—or you could be missing out on Mrs. Right just because she plays the Sims for 2-hours a day or Mr. Right just because he hoards comic books. Don't we all have a red flag or two (or more)?!
