Red Flags to Look Out for in a New Relationship

Starting a new relationship can be an exciting experience, full of joy, and hope for the future. However, it’s essential to keep an eye out for any red flags that might indicate a potential relationship disaster. In this article, we’ll explore some common red flags to look out for in a new relationship and how to avoid them.

Lack of Communication

Communication is a vital aspect of any relationship, and if your partner is not willing to communicate openly and honestly, it’s a significant red flag. If your partner avoids difficult conversations or shuts down when you try to talk to them about your concerns, it may indicate that they are not interested in building a healthy, long-lasting relationship. In such a situation, you need to be clear with your expectations and have a candid conversation with your partner about the importance of communication in your relationship.

Lack of Respect

Respect is a critical component of any healthy relationship. If your partner does not show you respect, it may indicate that they do not value you as a person. If your partner belittles you, dismisses your opinions, or criticizes you in public, it’s a sign of disrespect that can lead to serious problems in the future. You need to set boundaries and make it clear to your partner that such behavior is unacceptable.

Control Issues

If your partner tries to control your behavior, your appearance, or your interactions with others, it’s a significant red flag. A healthy relationship is built on mutual trust, respect, and independence. If your partner tries to dictate your actions, it’s a clear sign of controlling behavior, which can lead to an abusive relationship. You need to be firm about your boundaries and assert your independence in such situations.


Honesty is the foundation of any healthy relationship. If your partner is not honest with you, it’s a significant red flag. If your partner lies about small things, it’s a clear indication that they may not be truthful about more significant issues. You need to be honest with your partner about your expectations and have a candid conversation with them about their honesty and transparency.


A partner who is overly self-absorbed and obsessed with their own needs and wants may indicate narcissism. A narcissistic partner will make the relationship all about them and their needs, leaving you feeling unimportant and unheard. In such a relationship, your needs will always come last, and you may end up feeling emotionally drained and exhausted. You need to be cautious of such behavior and assert your needs and boundaries firmly.

Jealousy and Possessiveness

Jealousy and possessiveness are significant red flags in any relationship. If your partner is overly jealous, it may indicate that they do not trust you or have insecurities that they need to address. If your partner tries to control who you interact with, where you go, or what you wear, it’s a sign of possessiveness, which can be a precursor to an abusive relationship. You need to be clear about your boundaries and assert your independence firmly.

Disregard for your feelings – If your partner repeatedly disregards your feelings or dismisses your emotions, it’s a red flag that they may not value your emotional well-being. It’s essential to be with someone who understands and respects your feelings.

Lack of accountability – A partner who refuses to take responsibility for their actions or blames others for their mistakes is not someone who can be trusted. Accountability is essential in any relationship, and a lack of it can lead to a breakdown of trust and communication.

Inconsistent behavior – If your partner’s behavior and actions are inconsistent, it can be a significant red flag. This could mean they are hiding something or have a problem with being truthful. It’s important to pay attention to inconsistencies and address them with your partner.

Disrespectful behavior towards others – How your partner treats others, such as friends, family, or even strangers, can be an indicator of their character. If they are consistently disrespectful or rude to others, it’s a red flag that they may not have a genuine concern for other people’s feelings and well-being.

In conclusion, when starting a new relationship, it’s essential to keep an eye out for any red flags that may indicate a potential relationship disaster. Lack of communication, lack of respect, control issues, dishonesty, narcissism, and jealousy are some common red flags that you should look out for. You need to be firm about your boundaries and assert your independence, and have open and honest communication with your partner about your expectations. Remember, a healthy relationship is built on trust, respect, and mutual support.

Steps For A Pleasant Online Dating Experience

Online dating has potential, but the result that you get largely depends on how you approach it and how you handle the entire process. There are people who have a better experience than others simply because they probably choose to be a little more organized when entering into online dating. Taking a step at a time is what you should strive for if you want to see the results that you expect.

Step 1 – Make up your mind. This is very important for those looking for serious relationships. Do not enter into online dating if you are going it as a trial because then this means that you will end up wasting a lot of time. You need to be sure that going online is the best way to find what you are looking for and have confidence that it will indeed get you what you are expecting. When your mind is made up it becomes easy for you to have everything done right so you are successful in the end.

Step 2 – Write your profile. It is best to write your online dating profile before you even start looking for a dating site because at this time your mind is still fresh and you clearly know what you want. Analyze every detail before including it in the profile so you are able to come up with a winning profile. This is the stage at which you also choose the profile photos to use and upload. Let the profile market, you without giving away too many unnecessary details.

Step 3 – Find the perfect dating site. There are so many dating sites today and you would need to take a few things into considerations to choose the best for you. Location based dating sites are preferred by many because they give you a chance to easily meet other singles from your locality but you can also choose to join a site that covers a wider area depending on your preferences. Take the time to look at the reputation of the site, security features and the matching system it uses to help you find your mate. It is actually a good idea to find out what others have to say about the dating site just so that you are sure.

Step 4 – Sign up and upload your profile. After making comparisons and you have found a site you feel will work for you, you can go ahead and sign up and make any payments to unlock the features you want.

This is the stage where you put up your profile.

Step 5 – Be proactive. Most dating sites will help match you up with potential singles or singles you are compatible with in relation to your interests, beliefs, star sign and others. But it is still a good idea to plunge right into the market and do your own search as well. Never wait to be found, do the finding too, and you are likely to get faster results.

LCCS Journey With Sameer

How did my journey with Sameer begin?

Sameer*, 22, a youth offender serving his sentence in the Changi Prison, was sitting alone in the
room. Tattoos covered almost his entire body. He was waiting to meet me, his
‘My Journey’
facilitator. Upon entering the room, I smiled and shook his hand. After ten minutes into our
conversation, he suddenly asked
, “What do you think of me?He paused, concerned if I was affected
by his tattoos.

Sensing his discomfort, I replied in a light-hearted tone, Hey Sameer, I am fine with your tattoos. I
am happy to
see you today. I’d like to introduce to you this new program called My Journey.” He
then nodded his head and began to feel more at ease with me. At that time, I had no inkling that his
tattoos were not just merely modern decorative body art, but its designs and symbols were indicative
of his past journey with a secret society indulging in drugs and perpetrating violence.

Why was Sameer incarcerated?

Sameer was incarcerated for about two years for drug offences and violence. Early in his life at the
age of 17, he was hooked on drugs and soon became a drug addict. He also got himself involved in
gang related activities. One day while he was at home, he became violent after consuming some drugs
and ended up beating his mother, who later called the police. He also hit one of the police officers
when he came to arrest him.

How did Sameer repair harm and restore relationships?

By participating in the My Journey program, Sameer was given the space to talk about his feelings of
sadness, anger and shame for causing harm to his loved ones, particularly his mother. As the journey
progressed, he began to reflect on how he could restore his relationship and to rebuild trust with them.
After Sameer journeyed with me in this program for about two months, a restorative
conference/support circle was convened inside the prison.

On this important day of restitution, Sameer had the opportunity to have meaningful engagements
with his family members and people who had cared for him over the years. They included his
biological and adoptive families, a former school teacher, a befriender, a counsellor and prison staff.
As Sameer knelt before his loved ones and apologised to them, participants began to tear as they
could feel the sincerity expressed by Sameer to repair harm and restore relationships. The sight of
both mothers, biological and adoptive, hugging their son, forgiving and loving one other brought so
much comfort and encouragement to the group.

He then began to talk about how he would like to rebuild trust with those affected by his behaviours.
He listed some goals to achieve for the next six months, which included getting a job to support his
family, having a strategy to remain drug-free, taking up a hobby and volunteering in community work.
To help Sameer achieved his goals, participants would act as his community of care and started to
express their support by listing the kind of help they would like to provide him to ensure that he would
succeed in achieving his goals.

What made the My Journey program a meaningful outcome?

The My Journey program allowed a series of engagements between Sameer and people in his
community of care to process their feelings, provide closure on the past and provide their support for
Sameer to keep him on track. At LCCS, we advocate administering Restorative Practices (RP) among
inmates through the
My Journey program. The program aims to break the cycle of hurt, restore
relationships and rebuild trust so that every inmate can avoid reoffending and be reintegrated into the
community as a responsible citizen who contributes to society and the nation.

Guided Meditation – Get Over A Relationship Hypnosis – M & L Hypnosis & Music For The Mind And Soul

So give yourself the gift of self-forgiveness is to make room in your heart for love, allowing yourself to receive love from yourself and from those around you. And today’s guided meditation will help you open your heart so that you can offer yourself the gift of self-forgiveness.

Remember, you need to either say or listen to these positive self-talk statements daily (minimum twice per day) for a period of 30 days in order for these affirmations to override your existing programming in your subconscious mind.

Before you begin, find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for the next 25 minutes. Second, find a comfortable position to sit – it can be in a chair, crossed legged or on your knees, or lay down and when you’re ready, press play. Once the meditation session is over, you can share your experience with all of us by commenting below.

Hypnosis is a powerful tool to unblock very quickly. Here you’ll easily relax and drift off. As you move from your wide-awake state, your mind will relax down into alpha and theta brainwave states. This is where the power of hypnosis happens within your subconscious mind where you can experience this mental and spiritual meeting with your spirit guides.

This is more than just a meeting. It’s a journey of relaxation hypnosis that elaborates on your very purpose of being, your spirit energy and how that all guides you through the universe. Even as you drift off to your deep sleep, hypnosis will engage your mind with a profound experience that will benefit you with energy in your body in the morning and insight to your spirit, empowering your everyday life. Notice the difference by meeting with your spirit guides through hypnosis and deep sleep.
