Dating Truths You Can't Ignore -OR- You CAN ignore and end up bummed out later.

Truth #1  You'll regret that "Just wanted to make sure you got my last message" follow-up to an e-mail, text, or voicemail.

Truth #2  If you don't feel comfortable having a conversation with a guy about sex — especially condoms — you shouldn't be getting busy with him.

Truth #3  If a man breaks up with you out of the blue, the out-of-the-blue part is really only on your end.

Truth #4  Just as it's best to wait to drop the L-bomb until your man does, let a guy change his Facebook status to "in a relationship" before you do.

Truth #5  No woman in a healthy long-term relationship has ever said, "Gee, I really wish I'd slept with my man sooner."

Truth #6  Keeping a change of clothes at work in case of an emergency walk of shame isn't optimistic behavior...it's career-savvy.

Truth #7  When a guy repeatedly refers to his exes as "crazy," "psycho," or "sluts," he will use those same words against you one day.

Truth #8  If a relationship feels like too much work after the first month, it'll be 10 times harder a year from now.

Truth #9  A guy who rates you or other girls as a number from 1 to 10 is a loser, even if he gives you a 10. You're a woman, not county fair livestock.

Truth #10  A guy who talks about how skilled he is in the sack is like a man who brags about his money. Either way, he ain't got it. The kind of man you want to be with knows that actions speak louder than words. And thankfully, there are plenty of those types out there! 10 Truths You Shouldn't Ignore --Cosmo

Do you ever find yourself either at the end of the relationship or during a relationship thinking...okay why didn't I notice these red flags before?  I certainly have.  There have been times where I've noticed a red flag with a bull charging at me and I still ignored it (or at least tried to).  

Most of the truths above are very prevalent in relationships (I highlighted my favorites). For instance, do not, DO NOT send someone a "?" if they have not responded to you in a while.  It makes it look like you've been waiting by your phone for their response.  Even if you have, at least appear not to be by not sending that message or a message like "You there?"  If they were available to respond or wanted to respond they probably would.  Let it be, make yourself busy, and if they call/text you back, then great!  If not, at least you didn't waste more time than what necessary on someone not worthy of it.
