7 Signs He's Probably Not the One

If he's doing one of these things, RUN.If he's doing one of these things, RUN.Dating can be tough-and sometimes it's hard to suss out the good guys from the total jerks That's why we got Halle Kaye and Sophie Stone, co-authors of Maybe He's Just an Asshole to break down the biggest red flags for us. Think twice before you date a dude with these habits.

He Sucks Over the Phone
Whether he takes too long to reply to texts, doesn't respond to them at all, or doesn't call as much as he should, there's a chance he's trying to get a lot out of you without reciprocating much. Guys who care about you will want to show it and it's not hard to use a phone. If it happens once in a while, fine. If it's all or majority of the time, you have a problem.

He Doesn't Treat You Like a Priority
If he only schedules plans with you at the last minute, or totally goes off the radar when he's traveling, that's a really bad sign. You want a guy who makes you feel important-not someone who only wants to hang when he's bored or horny.

He Doesn't Have Your Back
Dudes who criticize your appearance, tease you in a hurtful way, or can't handle your success are bad news. You need a guy who makes you feel better about yourself-not someone who wants to tear you down to make himself feel better.

He's Selfish in Bed
This spans everything from wanting to make sure you orgasm to wearing a condom in bed to not pushing you to do something you're not comfortable with. If you're with a guy who won't do any of these things, you have a problem.

He Needs More Time
We get it-sometimes it takes a little time for the two of you to suss each other out to see if you want to be exclusive. But if you've been hanging out for a while (like more than two months) and he still says he needs more time, he's taking advantage of you.

He Looks at Other Girls
Sure, he might think your waitress is attractive, but he shouldn't let you know that. If your guy flirts with your friends, your sister, the coffee shop barista-pretty much anyone he comes into contact with-you should move on. He should make you feel like you're the only woman he sees.

He Doesn't Make You Part of His Life
If you've been dating for more than two months and you still haven't met anyone in his life, that's a serious red flag. Guys who only want to hang at your apartment or his are probably focused on the physical and have no intention of being a boyfriend.
