Not everyone you find yourself attracted to is necessary cut out for a relationship. Unfortunately, some people have a long way to go until they’re compassionate and selfless enough to give out genuine love.
1. They care more about your career than your character.
If you never feel quite good enough for your partner — and she’s much more interested in what you do than who you are — consider it a big, glaring red flag.
2. You feel controlled by their many rules.
People with narcissistic personalities put high expectations on others — and when you fail to meet those expectations, judgement almost always follows.

A narcissistic personality will share the spotlight, but only up to a point. The second your success starts to overshadows his there’s bound to be trouble.
5. They never ask, “How was your day?”
Getting home and ranting to your partner about your crappy workday is one of the great joys of life. You deserve someone who not only asks, “how was your day, honey?” but actually listens to what you have to say, even if your response is 90 percent complaining.

a self-centered partner seems to enjoy the sound of her voice a lot more than yours.
7. You have to beg your partner to do things you want to do.
