Taking to the anonymous confessions app, Whisper, men and women shared the red flags that popped up in their old relationships.
They say you should always trust your gut, and in a relationship that couldn’t be more important.
New couples can sometimes be so wrapped up in the romance and excitement that they overlook vital warning signs that love is going awry.
