1. They get easily upset and overly concerned when you don’t text or call them back right away

This one is a given, but it never fails to be true. There’s nothing more annoying than being at work, out with friends or at the gym and having your phone being blown up with five consecutive “where are youuu??” or “are you ignoring me?!” texts.

2. They have little to no friends or social life other than you

If you’re all they’ve got, that means they likely have nothing else to do except go to work or school and then be up your ass all the time. There’s also something fishy about someone who has no friends, and this alone should raise a red flag.

3. They can’t understand why you’d possibly want some alone time here and there

If they need to always be around you, that’s a major cause for concern. Of course we all love hanging with our partners, but it’s also very important to allocate some time with just ourselves because at the end of the day, we’re all that we’ve got. Spending too much time together can cause tension that leads to arguments and potentially even an ugly breakup.
