How To Tell If The Person You’re Dating Is Crazy

If it’s one thing that I have learned when it comes to dating, it is that perception is everything. Too often it’s hard to tell when you meet a person, if you’re meeting the real them or their representative; their representative being the person that they want you to believe them to be. But eventually their true colors will show, and when they do, be ready to walk away, and in some cases, run for your life. So, if you’re having trouble deciding whether or not the person you are dating is truly crazy, here’s a list of rules that might help you make up your mind:

1)    If they friend request you on Facebook, MySpace, and follow you on twitter during the first date. Social networking sites are great to keep in contact with family and friends, but not potential stalkers.

2)    If they send flowers and a singing telegram to your place of employment, and you never told them where you work.

3)    If you come home to find them cooking you dinner and you never gave them a key to your house.

4)    If they create a website dedicated to how much they love you. And you’ve only been on three dates.

5)    If they make statements about causing you bodily harm if you leave them, and they try to pass it off as a joke.

All is fair in love until you have to change your phone number, get a restraining order, and in some cases, change your identity and move to a completely different city and state. So, when taking a chance on someone new please pay attention to the warning signs. If you feel that this list doesn’t apply to you, in the words of my father, “If it looks like trouble, if it sounds like trouble, if it feels like trouble, then its trouble.” Listen to your gut, because it could probably save your life, or at least a whole bunch of trouble.
