Jan 01, 2024

Dating in 2024.  Red flags and Green Flags

2023 was a year of education, healing and growth and 2024 we're going into the dating world with our eyes wide open and approaching each new dating opportunity with caution!  Okay, so we’ve all heard of red flags in relationships, but let’s be honest: sometimes, they can be very difficult to spot. Especially when you really want a relationship to work.

What are Red Flags and Green Flags?

When it comes to relationships, it's important to be aware of the signs that indicate whether a person is a good match or not. Red flags are warning signs that suggest potential problems or incompatibilities, while green flags are positive indicators that the relationship has a strong foundation. Understanding these flags can help you make informed decisions and navigate the dating world with confidence.

Recognizing Red Flags

Red flags can vary from person to person, but there are some common warning signs to watch out for. These include:

  • Consistent disrespect or disregard for boundaries
  • Controlling or manipulative behavior
  • Frequent and intense jealousy
  • Lack of communication or unwillingness to resolve conflicts
  • Dishonesty or lack of trustworthiness

It's important to trust your instincts and take red flags seriously. Ignoring them can lead to unhealthy and potentially harmful relationships.  Check out one of our favorite podcasts with Dr. Emily Morse, Matthew Hussey and Dr. Ramani on Red Flags and Green Flags here.  

Spotting Green Flags

On the other hand, green flags indicate positive qualities and behaviors that contribute to a healthy and fulfilling relationship. Look out for these green flags:

  • Respect for boundaries and personal space
  • Open and honest communication
  • Willingness to compromise and resolve conflicts
  • Trustworthiness and reliability
  • Supportive and encouraging behavior
  • Therapy!  This is a big one.  In a recent Bumble study, the most popular question asked between individuals on the online platform is 'are you going to a therapist.  The thing is, we are so close to ourselves it's really important to have an impartial person call us out on our unhealthy tendencies and behaviours. 

Green flags are indicators of a strong foundation and compatibility. They suggest that the person is emotionally mature and capable of building a healthy relationship.

Understanding red flags and green flags is essential for navigating the dating world. By recognizing warning signs and positive indicators, you can make informed decisions and choose partners who are compatible and supportive. Remember to trust your instincts and prioritize your well-being in any relationship.
