9 Warning Signs That Your New Flame Isn’t Worth Pursuing

9. If they can’t be vulnerable.

This is a big deal breaker in my book. If someone isn’t able to lay all their cards on the table, they shouldn’t even be seated across from you. Vulnerability is key for relationship success. It humanizes the other and also gives both parties the opportunity to move closer in love.

These are just some red flags that come up early on in a new connection. When these are present, things like small wins, true intimacy, deep connection, understanding and being seen (the real gold that comes from connection) doesn’t have room to be there.

On the road to healing, learn to throw out old ways of being in a relationship and move into deeper, more conscious understandings of love.
