    Marriage Talk Is Avoided

    If discussions about making your relationship more permanent are shut down before you can even get started, this is a red flag. A partner who just wants to have a casual relationship will not want to discuss the possibility of getting married or even talk about other people’s upcoming nuptials.

    You're Not In The Future

    This is a big red-flag to look out for because you have to notice this one on your own without asking.   If your partner talks about the future but you’re never mentioned in his or her plans, there’s a problem. Someone who is excited about your relationship and desires to spend a lifetime with you will make these intentions clear. Vague or nonexistent references to a future together are not a good sign

    Your Partner TELLS You

    The most obvious sign? Your partner tells you that marriage just isn’t in the cards. No matter what you do or say, it’s highly unlikely you’ll be able to change this decision.  Find someone more compatible or you'll be in the forever dating zone.
