Are you dating a guy who constantly compares you to his ex-girlfriend? Does your boyfriend go through your phone whilst you’re in the shower? Is your date judging you for how many people you’ve slept with?
These are all examples of red flags that many women and girls experience daily. We may laugh off some of these red flags as ‘normal behaviour’ but they can often contribute towards a culture of misogyny, harassment, and sexual violence, which can lead to more serious violent acts.
Love bombing you
Behaving badly towards you when you say you want to leave
When they don't take no for an answer
When they try to follow you
When men consider you weak because you're a woman
Gaslighting when you're telling him that something he does makes you feel uncomfortable
Men asking you for sex when you don't know them
When they say you can’t have male friends
Telling me what I can and can’t post on social media
Putting down ex-partners claiming they are crazy
Making false accusations against me in front of friends
Criticising my outfit
Saying women belong in the kitchen
Always talking down to me
Not letting me wear what I want on a night out
Telling me I look better in make up
Telling me I’m not giving them enough sex

A red flag is a sign when something's not right.
Whether you’re in a relationship or just getting to know someone, red flags are types of behaviour that make you feel uneasy or disrespected – often a gut feeling telling you to steer clear.
A red flag could be a one-off incident, such as an inappropriate comment, or a pattern of behaviour such as constantly referring to ex-partners as ‘crazy’ or ‘psycho’. Red flags can also be more violent and dangerous incidents – verbal and emotional abuse, possessiveness or anger issues.
We want to hear from you. Have you experienced an incident that made you feel uncomfortable from a guy you’re seeing or even a stranger? Perhaps your partner has displayed behaviour that makes you feel intimidated or ashamed? By sharing your own experience of red flag behaviour, we can help others identify when it is happening to them to avoid situations happening in the future.
