You’ve met someone and the sparks are flying, but before you start that fire, make sure you recognize the signs you’re not ready to be in a relationship.

If you identify with any of these red flags, you might need to fly solo until you’re up to a major commitment.

Here are 8 top signs to look out for before heading for Couplesville.

1. You’re Unhappy

While dishing about expensive dates to your gal pals might cheer you up momentarily, let’s face it: you’re using the person you're dating.

If you’re not satisfied with where you’re at, you need to work at it, girl!

Believe me, when your partner realizes that he or she is a feel-good tool, it’ll be one of the worst feelings in the world.

And racking up the bad karma points won’t be fun for you.

You’re Not over Your Ex

Hi, I have realised that as soon as I can feel that my crush likes me back too I freak out and get this disgusting feeling. This has ruined my last relationship and prevented me recently from getting into a new one. Is this normal or not? If not, then what should I do? Please help.

Hey Floortje! It's hard to have those feelings but not know what to do with them. I'd say maybe, if you are having doubts on the relationship, just hold off for now. That way you can make sure that you really are ready for a relationship. :)

These are some great tips! It's really hard to be mundane with someone that you aren't super comfortable with. Thanks for the addition! ;)

this may sound obscure, but I think if you don't enjoy mundane things with the person every once in a while, you shouldn't get too serious yet. what I mean is that if you can't ride in a car in silence without it being awkward, go grab groceries, or even hang out and just watch tv together, it's a sign you're not truly comfortable. if you only have chemistry when you're on fancy or super exciting dates, it can be a sneaky signal that it's time to step on the brakes a bit.
