Default what are red flags for you when dating?

The dating threads are so much fun!!! This is a tangent from the worst dating stories, and this one is, What are red flags for you when you are dating?

They are ususally the things I wish I'd paid attention to at the time, and I overlooked them or glossed over them in the starry-eyed-ness of the moment, and then I regretted it later. Or things that are...well...red flags and impossible to miss. Here are some to start:
  • they spend a lot of time talking about their ex and how wonderful their ex is
  • they are still sleeping with their ex "but not having sex, just as friends" (for real, someone told me that, I kid you not)
  • they expect me to pay for everything. all the time. even on the first date. when they asked me out. (a double red flag because this person was not only employed but made twice my salary)
  • they see no reason to give me a birthday present. or a christmas present. ever. even after i ask.
Can't wait to hear yours : )

They spend too much sending and receiving text messages...well into the late evening of the date. "Back up booty call" I'm assuming.

I once fixed dinner for a guy and while we were eating my cat jumped up in his lap and he shoved her off really hard and she hit the table leg. Instead of apologizing he laughed about it. I thought many times after that that I should have kicked him out right then because as it turned out, he had a mean streak.

They say that if they had their way they would strap you on the hood of their car and drive past their ex's house while laying on the horn every morning.

Your in the shower and you through the curtain see the shadow of a hairdryer at the end of its cord and they mumble oh crap.

everything they cook for you tastes like almonds.
