5 Red Flags of Dating a Toxic Person

Dating can be a *thrilling* adventure, but it can also be a minefield of *toxic* people. From commitment-phobes to drama kings and queens, it’s all too easy to find yourself in a relationship with someone who’s not the right fit. But don’t despair, there is hope! Here are a few tips to help you identify the red flags of dating a toxic person and keep your sanity in check.

1. Keep your eyes open

for the “Drama Llama”: You know the type, always *stirring up drama* and creating unnecessary conflict. They thrive off of making you feel miserable and will always find a way to make something out of nothing. It's like living in a real-life episode of "The Office," minus the laughs. If you spot this llama, *run for the hills*!

2. Beware of the “Always Late”: Nothing says toxic like someone who can’t be on time. Whether it’s dinner, a movie or just a simple date, if your partner is *always late*, it’s a sign that they don’t respect you or your time. It's like they think they're Beyoncé and you're their *peon* - no one deserves to be treated that way!

3. Watch out for the “Commitment-phobe”: If your partner can’t seem to commit to anything, whether it’s plans for the weekend or a more serious commitment, it’s time to *reevaluate* your relationship. It's like they're stuck in "The Bachelor" and you're their contestant - you don't need that kind of drama in your life.

4. The “energy vampire”: We all know that person who can *suck the life* out of any room. If your partner seems to be constantly draining your energy and enthusiasm, it’s time to move on. It's like being in a bad vampire movie - you don't need that kind of psychological torture.

5. The “jealous type”: Jealousy is a normal emotion, but if your partner is constantly *questioning your whereabouts* and accusing you of cheating, it’s a sure sign that something toxic is going on. It's like they think they're Taylor Swift and you're their ex - no one wants to be in that kind of relationship.

Dating can be a fun and *exciting* experience, but it’s important to be aware of the warning signs of a toxic relationship. If you’re ever in doubt, just remember: if it looks like a Llama, runs like a vampire and acts like a commitment-phobe, it’s probably *not the right person for you!*
