“Never date anyone who hates his mother.” — My Mother
I once made the mistake of delving into a relationship after someone told me on our first date that his mother was “very controlling” and that they didn’t get along so well. I should have seen this as a red flag, but I ignored it. My reasoning: he was smokin’ hot. It will be fine, I convinced myself as I ran my hands over his rippling muscles and gigantic schlong.
But in the end he was a dick. Our short-lived relationship was a power struggle, with him “knocking me down” or commenting on my physical imperfections whenever he felt like he had to put me in my place. I’m sure I’m not the only person who has experienced this type of douchebaggery.
So my advice to anyone who hears something similar to this is: run for the hills! Unless, of course, you like being controlled. The red flags that are raised on the first date are the issues that end up ruining the relationship later, so they can’t be ignored! Next!
