The lure and sparkle of a partnership can blind us to areas of incompatibility or relationship red flags.

While personality quirks or bad habits can be overlooked or change over time, there are some red flags that should not be ignored as they might be indicative of more serious—even dangerous—concerns.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the excitement of something new, we lose sight of what’s best and healthy for our lives.

Everyone gets angry sometimes, it’s the frequency and severity of your partner’s reactions that should act as a guide for your concerns.

Pay attention to the direction your partner’s anger is directed. Are you expected to absorb the negativity, even if you had nothing to do with the situation?

Are you often blamed for your partner’s horrible mood?

You should not try to be energetic into their life. The worst thing that you can do with someone like this is to force them to tell you everything about their life and allow you to get into their life.

If you do this they will simply become more opposed to you being concerned with their life and you'll only find that your aggravation grows.

However, research published in the "European Journal of Social Psychology" in 2012 showed that when one partner holds back and conceals things, the other partner loses trust and may eventually self-disclose less as well.
