I remember when I was really young and I could actually stop dating someone because of a minor red flag. Once you get older, you learn to overlook EVERYTHING. “Oh, you don’t ever shower? That’s so environmentally conscious!”
A new survey asked people which of these red flags would make them stop dating someone. Here are the results . . .
1. They’re very jealous and don’t like it when you hang out with your friends instead of them . . . 84% say they’d dump someone over that red flag.
2. They’re really flaky and constantly cancel plans at the last minute, 82%.
3. They keep bringing up their ex on a first date, 78%.
4. They’re rude to your server on your first dinner date, 77%.
5. They flirt with other people in front of you, 70%.
6. Their friends are awful, 68%.
7. They admit they cheated on their last significant other, 61%.
8. After you have sex for the first time, it’s awful and you realize you’re not sexually compatible, 60%.
9. Bad personal hygiene, 52%.
10. You have opposite political views, 48%.
Here’s the good and bad of dating you, based on your zodiac sign.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
The good: You come up with great ideas for things to do and are enthusiastic about almost everything. You’re dynamic, fun, and funny. Oh, and you don’t limit your adventurous spirit which makes you amazing at sex.
The bad: You tend not to think before you speak, which is why you can be hurtful with your words, and you don’t think before you act which makes you impulsive and causes you to get angry quickly.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
The good: You give and give and give, making sure to give your partner everything that they need. You’re reliable, stable and strong, and the people you love feel as if you have their back and that they’re safe.
The bad: You’re beyond stubborn and you won’t give in, even when it causes you damage. You need to be right at all costs.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
The good: You’re effervescent, playful, and social. You’re fantastic at being entertaining at a party but you also do one-on-one talks extremely well.
The bad: You can be extroverted one moment and introverted the next, so one never knows which you they are going to get.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
The good: You go out of your way to care for those you love and you’re always there when they need you.
The bad: It doesn’t take long for you to get really needy. You hang as if your life depended on it and your neediness can be overwhelming.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
The good: You have such a strong sense of self and you’re very self-confident that just by being with you makes one feel better about themselves. You lift people up to your level and allow them to soar on their own.
The bad: You must be dominant in the relationship and there’s no negotiation on that. If someone threatens your position as the alpha, you don’t fight with them, you just let them go.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
The good: You’re very supportive and you’re happy to help in any way that you can with everything. When you’re with someone they feel as if they have a purpose and that their lives make sense.
The bad: You constantly complain about your own problems and that can be exhausting.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
The good: You’re easy-going, romantic, and you give weight to what you say. You’re not going to say something unkind if you can possibly avoid it. People feel good around you, as if you’re able to protect them from the harsh realities of the world.
The bad: When you’re not avoiding a conflict, you’re vacillating on decisions. It’s not that you can’t make a decision, it’s just that when you do, you tend to second-guess yourself about if they were the correct decisions to make.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
The good: You make sure to give your full attention to people and you make them feel as if they’re truly heard. You’re also incredibly gifted when it comes to sex and no one has ever not been 100 percent satisfied after being with you.
The bad: When your trust issues are triggered, it can get bad for everyone. It takes you forever to trust and if your trust is somehow destroyed, you’ll go on a rampage of vengeance. It’s never a good idea to betray you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
The good: You encourage people to try new things and, in turn, you open up their worlds. You cause people to grow and change and they’re never the same after knowing you.
The bad: You can be the flakiest of the flakes. You say you’ll do something or be somewhere and completely forget about it or simply blow it off. You’re not always the most dependable person on the block.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
The good: When someone needs you, there’s nothing that will prevent you from being there for them. You’ll fight their battles, support them, and you help them in any way that they need.
The bad: You can be closed off and fearful of change. You don’t like to feel as if you aren’t in control and this can make you scared to do something out of the ordinary or take chances.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
The good: You’re smart and very thoughtful in creative ways. You don’t just give someone a gift, you give them the most appropriate, considerate gift on earth.
The bad: Your schedule is packed and it’s hard for you to block out time to see the people you care about, let alone time for yourself.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
The good: You’re unbelievably kind and giving. You want to save the world and all of its inhabitants but you still make sure to give your bae the attention they deserve.
The bad: It doesn’t take much to get you into panic mode where you start freaking out about everything. You care and give too much of yourself to others. It’s okay to distance yourself a little bit.
