Red Flags? What Red Flags?

You've heard me talk over and over again about the "Red Flags," when it comes to dating. But are you reading all those Red Flags as well as you might? Do you know what they look like, sound like, or are like?

Or - is it possible that you see them clealy but you keep plunging headlong into a deadly dating minefield anyway?

Well, maybe it's time we do some super sleuthing into the real issue of...

1. Identifying Red Flag behaviors

2. Reading what those Red Flag behaviors really mean

3. Understanding why we sometimes ignore them when they're screaming at us to run, not walk, away from a not-so-healthy relationship, but we keep charging forth anyway!

Join us for our usual men-women experiences, struggles, and sharing as we all navigate the dating minefield on our search for great, healthy love!

As always, the official meeting goes from 7 - 9PM, but folks start arriving at 6 to start "connecting" with other eligible singles and to order their libations from the Mercury Cafe, our wonderful new host. (As part of our deal being able to use the Mercury Cafe, we have agreed to buy their yummies.) So drop by early, grab a beer or dinner, and join us as we get to know each other better during our pre-meeting "rub elbows" time.

You'll mix and mingle with other eligible and interesting singles all on their journey to learn more about love and to find a healthy mate as well.

Yep - folks are hooking up from this group! You could be next ... if you're there too! Remember - we're meeting on TUESDAYS NOW at the MERCURY CAFE. (www.MercuryCafe.com)

We had over 100 folks join us at the FEb meeting ... so don't miss out on having a GREAT TIME with a bunch of terrific singles.

IMPORTANT: I've been trying to line up pay in advance to RSVP, so let's see if this works.

TWO: Mercury Cafe DOES NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS BUT THEY DO HAVE AN ATM.

BTW - they have DANCING UPSTAIRS after our Meetup is over. I think it's $6 to participate, but they always have a great turnout ... yet one more opportunity to meet folks! What's not to love?

    No gender difference when it comes to red flags. Great to have men and women shares all the pitfalls or dating. Laugh a lot and leave a little more aware each time.

    I had thought I would be learning how to recognize the red flags...

      Well, yeah, that's the problem, maybe I don't recognize them soon enough...I guess I was more surprised at all that I did hear from everyone...I was surprised about what some had to say about the flags...

      I agree with Mary Jo Fay that quite a few "red flags" were covered. That being said... considering the average age and/or experience in the room, I too was surprised at the spirited conversations around what may seemed as obvious “red flags” and the definition of a “date”. However based on the posted feedback, I see the dialogue was beneficial.

    In response to red flags "and how to recognize them" - in my opinion, just because a red flag may not offend you, doesn't mean it's not a red flag - I think a red flag is anything that is out of the norm. The danger here, and the purpose of this exercise to become aware what is out of the norm. In one of my groups one of the ladies mentioned how naive she has been in not recognizing red flags and that several times she has felt taken advantage of.
    A statement was made asking if she "trusted her gut," her response was that she didn't. One of the other gals mentioned that she always trusts her gut and has never had a problem.

    What would you call a red flag?

    It's so great to see folks really connecting in this meetup ... and sharing their insights with so many others. It's truly the stuff we learn from each other that's oftentimes the most valuable!

    Kudos to Mary Jo! It's my second meet-up and this group is a fantastic bunch of people. Mary Jo's organizational skills give us a nice place to meet, zero hassle, and an entertaining/educational talk followed by discussion. Can't wait for the next one!

    Too much introspection. Doesn't anyone just wanna get laid once in a while?

    • Kim W.

      Does this mean I'm redflagged for honesty?

      March 4, 2013

    • Mary Jo Fay, RN, M.

      This group is about helping people learn how to have great relationships. What the building blocks are to getting there. It's about meeting people who are like-minded in looking for the same things. If you're looking to just get laid, then this isn't the place. So please move on.

    Very interested in attending. However, I live in Colorado Springs
    and difficult to predict what weather & driving conditions will be that evening thus, due to no refunds it is difficult to pay ahead. I would pay at time of arrival. Would rsvpng be allolwed under
    such circumstances??? Thanks.

    • Mary Jo Fay, RN, M.

      I have adjusted the RSVP final time to noon on Tuesday. That should give you more time to determine weather, etc. Although weather looks great for this upcoming meeting! Think maybe spring is really coming, at last?

    Is Age Gap a scam? Does anyone know? With all the mis-spellings and punctuation errors, it leads one to believe that English is not the primary language of this user.
