Let’s start off by saying: Nobody is perfect. 

In a world where many are searching for their dream person to sweep them off their feet, comes the realization that we all have our issues that need fixing… Not one person can have it all!

While there are of course red flags that we should look out for in our partners, Gary Aumiller, co-author of “Red Flags! How to Know When You’re Dating a Loser”, says that these top 5 negative traits are the hardest to change in your significant other:

CHEAP: It’s one thing to be reserved with splurging at the best restaurant in town, but if they start asking for cash or expecting you to flip the bill every time… Maybe it's time to take a second look.

TOO CLOSE TO THEIR PARENTS: Family values are key, however if they are constantly relying on their parents for everything... You might be in for a bumpy ride if you are looking for independence in a partner.

CHRONIC FLIRT: If they are constantly looking for attention from other people without your consent, consider yourself disrespected.

WORKAHOLIC: Nothing is more attractive than a passionate partner… But watch out if they start skipping dates in exchange for extra time on the job.

COMPETITIVE: Do they get worked up for no reason while watching a sports game? Do they never let you have the last word? Turning every encounter into a challenge means they value winning above all else.
