He Doesn’t Put In Any Effort
It’s not good to keep score in a relationship but being in a one-sided commitment should be a cause for concern.
If your man isn’t bothered to take the relationship further or even organise any dates or activities for the two of you, you’re doing too much ‘work’ and you need to be in a more balanced relationship.
Not putting in effort shows he’s not invested in this relationship so it might be best to cut your losses and leave.
He Never Apologises
Admitting when you’re wrong is one of the most essential qualities of being a decent human being and this is certainly important when you’re in a relationship.
If he never ever says he’s sorry – whether he’s late for a date or he had to cancel at the last minute or he said something to hurt your feelings – it shows he has a big ego and is someone you should steer clear of.

He Tries To Change You And Makes You Feel Guilty
It’s all well and good wanting your partner to improve but if he’s telling you to change your looks or live your life differently – such as getting new friends or stop doing the things you love – that’s a big red flag. Your man should encourage you to grow, not change. He should accept (and love) you for who you are and not try to turn you into a version of a partner he wants you to be.
A man who loves sending you on guilt trips has some serious self-esteem issues. So whether it’s because he thinks you’re spending too much time together or that you aren’t with him enough, it doesn’t matter; as long as he’s making you feel that way. If he’s making you feel guilty about doing ‘normal’ things in a relationship, you should hear the alarm bells loud and clear.
He Wants All Your Personal Info
We’re not talking about him wanting to know your favourite colour or your most memorable childhood memory. If he’s asking for your passwords or login details to your social media accounts or personal email, you might want to walk out the door.
Everyone needs some privacy even when they’re in a relationship so him wanting to know these details shows he doesn’t trust you and needs to be in control, which is a big no-no.
