Being Clingy - AKA Showing Interest Instead Of Playing It Cool
From Redditor u/cowboynat:
Being “clingy”. Now ACTUALLY being clingy and overstepping boundaries IS a red flag. But these days a lot of things that are perceived as clingy are just people showing genuine interest as opposed to trying to “play it cool.” Just my opinion though.

Having Friends Of The Opposite Gender If They're Straight
From Redditor u/SmakeTalk:
As a guy, having female friends. I’ve learned an absurd amount about life and especially what women go through by connecting properly with the women in my life and it’s made me a way better partner. Women who think it’s a red flag baffle me.

Being Friends With Their Ex
From Redditor u/jduisi:
Being friends with exes. I like when people have exes they're friends with. It means they were mature enough to be like, "we are not compatible anymore in a romantic/life partner sense for whatever reason but I still think you're a great person and no hard feelings."
If their reaction to a break up is always "this person is de*d to me" or they hate ALL their exes and can't be in the same room as them--that seems like the actual red flag.

From Redditor u/PerfectCe1l:
Texting back quickly. It shows you care and want to continue the conversation I don’t get why it’s perceived as weird.
