Do you dream of the perfect partner? But what exactly does that mean for you? After all, everyone has their own ideas about the key aspects of a happy relationship and what might lead to its demise.
A red flag refers to unacceptable behavior or specific character traits that you cannot tolerate in a partner. This could include infidelity, financial dependence, physical violence, commitment issues, and a plethora of other behavioral patterns. Understanding your own red flags can help you foster effective communication and harmonious relationships with your partner, as well as enable you to recognize warning signs promptly and avoid investing time in a dead-end relationship.
Experts in relationship psychology identify numerous red flags, but the majority can be classified into one of these 10 categories: different expectations and priorities, commitment issues, physical or emotional abuse, dwelling on past relationships, social and financial status, jealousy, lack of passion, overly controlling behavior, neediness and lack of maturity, and narcissism and lack of empathy.
This test will help you uncover which priorities and red flags from these 10 categories matter most to you. You may even discover new red flags that have previously contributed to subconscious dissatisfaction with your partner. The test consists of 42 questions that describe specific situations. Your task is to imagine how you would feel in such a situation or to reflect on your past experiences.
The test aims to help you gain a deeper understanding of your values and expectations when it comes to a partner, and perhaps even reevaluate them. Red flags don't necessarily have to result in the end of a relationship with a potentially promising partner, especially if you both actively work on improving these issues together.
