Rude dating behavior and responses
No one has the time to “check in” constantly with someone they’re “just” dating.
If you find yourself being bombarded with text messages, voicemails, calls and e-mails on an hourly basis in the early stages of dating, keep a lookout for other signs.
If you say no to coming home with them on a first date, for example, they may still continue pestering you despite knowing your reluctance.
It might seem incredible that someone is so besotted with you after just one date, but it’s actually a red flag for dubious behavior and unwarranted attachment.
It’s not normal to be in contact with someone 24/7 especially if you’ve only gone on a couple of dates with them.
Of course, if you’re familiar with the vicious abuse cycle of narcissists which include idealization, devaluation and discard, you’ll know that you’ll soon be thrust off the pedestal.
Unlike dating partners who are simply excited to see you again and express their interest with polite enthusiasm, toxic partners will get considerably upset if you choose not to respond to them right away or if you resist their idealization by giving yourself necessary space.
