There is no feeling quite like it. When you begin a brand-new relationship, it feels like you are floating on a cloud. Nothing can seem to get you down as you look at the world around you with rose-coloured glasses. However, perhaps you should be examining things a bit more closely. There are warning signs that are probably present if you just look at things a bit closer.
Is the Relationship Monogamous?
Sometimes when you enter a new relationship, you mistakenly believe that your new partner’s feelings are as strong for you as yours is for them. The bad news is that usually one person is much more into the relationship than the other. This is true when you first start dating and even through marriage. There always seems to be one person leading the other one around.
Don’t take it for granted that your new significant other is not dating around on you. It may be awkward, but sit down and have a talk about expectations in the relationship. At least this way, if they don’t agree with your thoughts, you can cut loose without wasting too much time.
Be Safe Instead of Sorry
Before you start having sex, it would be a very good idea to make an appointment in an STI clinic in Montreal for the both of you first. Sexually transmitted infections are on the rise and can be hard to determine if you are not a medical professional. Rather than risk being stuck with an STI or STD, perhaps for life, the both of you should get thoroughly checked over.
Does Your New Partner Keep You a Secret?
Have you ever dated someone for a length of time and no matter what, they just don’t seem to bring you around their family or friends? This obviously means they are hiding something. While it is quite ordinary to be wary of bringing someone new around your loved ones, avoiding it for months means a red flag should be going up. After the red flag, there should be warning sirens going off as well so you get the hint that you should run away.
Keeps in Contact with the Ex
Your new partner will probably not admit to still communicating with the ex, but it is something to be aware of. If they hide their phone when a text message or phone call pops up, then it could be time to either move on or have a very serious conversation.
