You're madly in love with your significant other. You can't get enough of each other and every minute away seems like physical pain. But later on, that high-pitched laugh starts to get a little more annoying. The tales of "what I did today" aren't very interesting anymore; in fact, they're downright irritating. Once those previously cute mannerisms start to grate on your nerves, it's time to give your relationship the once-over. Do you see any signs that this relationship just won't work out?

The person is a control freak. If he or she constantly knows what's best and has to make all the decisions, it may be time to leave. Unless you like being dictated to at all times, you don't want to be part of this relationship. Try to suggest doing things your way from time to time and see if they are receptive.

The person is over dramatic or emotional. And it's not only on stage, there's that melodramatic flair in everything. Emotion is important in a relationship, but beware of someone that is too emotional. Even if things seem well at the beginning, there will be times when people feel down or angry and they might eventually take it out on you. Pay close attention to your date's emotional maturity level and how they react to different situations and other people.

They don't think or care about other people. If a person has no consideration for others, it doesn't matter how hot they looks. It may be interesting at first watching them dealing with other people, but it can become uncomfortable after a while. If they constantly cause a scene if they can't get what they want, there will be absolutely no peace in the relationship. Guess who's next on the list - you.

They constantly hide you from their friends. Now why would someone need to be embarrassed about you? If they are serious about the relationship, then there should be no problems letting you meet friends or family. If you are being treated differently when you're alone compared to when you're in public, then this should raise a warning flag.

They are never willing to admit that they're wrong. This person is never going to be responsible for their actions and will always dump mistakes on someone else. And if the two of you do break up, it's going to be your fault.

There is an intellectual compatibility gap. If they can't talk about anything intelligent, then you've got to be prepared for some really painful mental gymnastics. However, it can work the other way, too. If all your significant other wants to talk about is work in higher mathematics when you need a calculator to check the night's restaurant bill... you may need to find another date.

They like alcohol, recreational drugs, and living the wild life. Drinking is ok, getting wasted regularly is something else. Alcoholism and drugs are not good for any relationship. Even if things seem interesting and fun at the beginning, eventually these bad habits will cause relationship problems when things are going so well.
