Some relationship problems are small misunderstandings or are easily repaired with a little communication. Then there are others that should sound the alarm and send you running:
1. History of bad relationships. Did their previous relationships all end in cheating, scandal and bad blood? This is a definite sign of the type of behavior that they are prone to. If all their relationships have had nasty, volatile endings, you have to wonder how yours will be any different.
2. You catch them lying. Lying of any kind is a major warning sign. Even if they lie about little things, you have to wonder what else they’ll be dishonest about and why they feel they can’t be honest with you.
3. Explosive communication style. If they totally shut down and storm out, or fly off the handle and explode every time a conflict arises you need to take notice. You’ll never survive any of life’s obstacles if you can’t even talk without a major blowup.
