Dating tips for Women: 3 Ways You’ll Know It's Time to Go

Dating tips for Women 3 Ways Youll Know Its Time to Go

The first weeks of a relationship are so awesome. You're both on your best behavior and trying desperately to impress each other. But after a while some signs start to appear that you may have made a mistake. Examine your relationship carefully to decide if it is time to finally say goodbye to that guy. The following three signs aren't the only red flags that it's time to go, but they are a good starting point.

He Breaks Dates a Lot

When a guy breaks a date to see you once, it could just be that something came up. But if he breaks dates frequently it's more likely that someone came up. The bottom line is that he's got better things to do — at least in his opinion. So if he's frequently breaking dates, shake him loose and start dating someone else before you get hurt.

He Asks for Money All the Time

Unless you're engaged or married, a guy asking you for money is suspicious. Even when you are very serious, it is a cause for alarm because someone you are committed to should have his own resources. If your new boyfriend is hitting you up for cash it either means that he is financially unstable or he's just using you because he knows you have the money. This is not a love connection; it's a relationship of convenience — his convenience.

Communication Has Changed

If you went from talking to your boyfriend every day to barely hearing from him once a week, that's a pretty clear indication that your relationship has changed for the worse. Soon enough he won't be talking to you at all. Cut him loose before you are the one who ends up with egg on your face, and do not let him crawl back once he realizes how great you were. History will just keep repeating itself.

If you see these signs and worse, but continue to date the guy, that's your choice, but don't be surprised if you find yourself being dumped not too far down the line. It's better to be proactive and end it yourself. You deserve to be appreciated and treated with respect by whoever you date.

@teddydog: Thank you so much for that! I was gonna say the same thing but you said it better than I could. I've been through this myself, it's really disheartening to be in a relationship (or try to enter one) only to find yourself under constant scrutiny because you don't have as much paper as your partner. That's crazy superficial, especially if the man in the relationship provides in literally every other way.

Also people should stop down-talking "very serious relationships" in favor of marriage or engagement as if getting married or engaged is more concrete (or stable) than a serious relationship. Do people just ignore the statistics? Marriage is no more concrete than any serious relationship and being engaged is literally the same as being in a "very serious relationship" except with more jewelry.

Well, I think all three signs indicated doesn't necessarily mean that the guy's got another lady or that he's no longer that into the girl. Of cause this could well be the case, but I think what the signs show, first and foremost, is that there is a problem, and that has to do with communication between both parties.
Instead of immediately jumping out of relationship that barely even started, maybe one should first try to understand what the problem might be... but of cause if its clear your date isn't that interested in you anymore you should definitely walk.

The above comment works in some but not all situations particularly when people are in completely different income streams and that occurs more than you may be aware. It's common knowledge between divorce lawyers that women believe that there money is solely theirs, never the mans. The exception to that rule is if your male you are expected to pay all the way - as much as you can financially handle. Other than seriously wealthy women, few if any, support spouses but when they do it's offered begrudgingly. In solid relationships money is not the issue because those people are beyond the superficiality of who paid for what. If equality is welcome then so be it - bravo, and if it's not then stay single, alone but happy with your money. Having seen this in others I find it destructive and sickening that an otherwise good relationship is laid to waste through money.
