Move Over Red And Green Flags, Here Are 7 Pink Flags To Look Out For In A Relationship

November 21, 2022 | by Janvi Manchanda

Love and relationships are beautiful but finding someone who fits perfectly in your life and is compatible with you is not easy. That’s part of why we need to keep an eye out for red flags or green flags when dating someone. But guess what? There’s more to relationships than just red and green flags. There are orange and pink flags! Yep, pink flags. These pink flags are not as serious as red flags and do not indicate big problematic behaviours instead, they showcase warning signs that one needs to tread carefully.

What Are Pink Flags?

Pink flags indicate that your partner and you might have compatibility issues and y’all aren’t on the same page about things. This means that you might need to proceed with caution. They indicate minor problems that you probably should address before the pink turn into red. These warning signs are extremely essential to note and be mindful of. These are things that can be worked through as opposed to red flags that are complete and absolute dealbreakers.

7 Pink Flags You Shouldn’t Ignore In A Relationship

1. Your Love Language Is Different

Relationships are all about love but if you and your partner do not speak the same love language, that’s a sure shot pink flag that both of you need to work through. For some people, silent sacrifices or acts of service are how they show affection and love but for others, it needs to be physical or verbal. If you have different ways of expressing love, you won’t be on the same page. This makes it tough for a couple to communicate and express and feel each other’s love making each of you feel less loved. So, before this turns into a red flag and causes problems, you should communicate and figure out how to meet midway.

2. Fights Are A Rare Occurrence

Most people consider couples who just don’t fight to be perfect but I promise you, they’re far from perfect. It’s not possible for couples to grow together and develop an understanding if they don’t fight. Fights and arguments prove that not only is your relationship authentic but both of you are willing to be vulnerable with each other and have uncomfortable conversations in order to grow. So, if you don’t fight and argue or rarely ever have disagreements, that’s a pink flag and if you don’t figure a way around it, it will turn into a red flag that will end ugly.

3. They’ve Got Friends From The Past

While it’s normal for couples who have had a mature breakup to remain friends but if your partner is keeping their ex around and having regular conversation with them as if they’re best friends, that’s a sign of trouble. More so, if your partner is oversharing and even discussing your relationship with their ex. And if your partner tries to ensure you don’t meet their ex and are evasive when asked about their conversations or meeting with their ex. This could mean that they have unresolved feelings which is a total pink flag. It’s best to figure things out with your partner before your relationship ends in betrayal or with a heartbreak. But remember, it’s okay if they’re friends with their ex and are transparent about it with you.

4. They’re Bad Texters!

We often hear people say that they’re bad texters but let’s be honest, people from our generation have been known to live most of their lives on their phones and having conversations via mail or text. If they can do it for work, they can do it for their relationship too. It’s okay if your partner cannot constantly text you or wants to have important conversations in person but do they put the effort to have these conversations? or are they using the excuse of being a bad texter to avoid these conversations altogether? You know which one is a pink flag!

5. Intimacy Is MIA

It’s important to have intimacy and sex in a relationship. Not holding hands or showing gentle love or having sex in a while is not a good sign for your relationship. That’s a pink flag that needs to worked on. No touching could mean there is some kind of emotional trouble between both of you. It could mean one of you is emotionally withdrawing or maybe both of you are and that’s a problem that cannot be ignored.

6. You Sense Emotional Danger

If you don’t feel that your feelings, emotions and thoughts are validated in a relationship, that’s a pink flag. It is essential to feel emotionally safe in your relationship which means that your partner validates your feelings and desires. If you cannot trust your partner enough to open up to them without feeling that they will disregard or disrespect how you feel, it means that you’re feeling emotionally unsafe and things aren’t going to work in the long run like that.

7. They’re New To Relationships

While there’s nothing wrong with someone being new to relationships but understanding why this person has never been in a relationship is important. Is it because they were focused on getting their life or career together or is it because they did not want to define or label a relationship? If your partner is someone who is commitment phobic or self absorbed and runs away from responsibilities, you might want to keep an eye out for if and when things go sideways.
