But Lisa, an educator from Los Angeles, says giving family members a heads-up helps.

We all know the obvious signs to tell if a man isn't the one for you: he cheated, he can't keep a job, he's abusive-emotionally or physically-the list goes on. But sometimes, subtle red flags are waving in our faces and we don't realize they mean it's time to dump an undercover loser.
1. All of his friends are single
If all of his friends are bachelors, he probably thinks he still is too. Men who are ready to be committed will stop acting like they're single (i.e., hanging out at strip clubs with all his single amigos) and keep around the dudes who are in serious relationships like him, says relationship expert April Masini of AskApril.com.

But, just as often, it can be more subtle: overreactions that keep you walking on eggshells, underhanded compliments, barbed advice that's allegedly for your own good, even offers to "help" by managing your money, career, or relationships with others.
Most of these relationships won't escalate to physical violence. But some will and it's difficult to tell until it's too late. The best thing you can do for yourself-or for a friend you suspect might be in such a situation-is to know the warning signs. Here are four actions you might be
