There are many people that are in a relationship that appears to be perfect. They go out and have a good time with friends and family. Everything goes well until the two are alone. That is when things go very wrong for at least one partner. The worst part is that breaking up with this person will lead friends and family to question a person's judgment. Being firm when leaving the relationship is the only possible defense.
One of the biggest red flags of a bad relationship is when requests are made that do not seem right. A person will act normal in public, and then make ridiculous demands in private. These demands often begin with the words if you love me. After that, the person then makes a demand that is ridiculous, demeaning or even illegal. If this happens on a regular basis, it is best to recognize this is a bad relationship and end it as soon as possible.
