3. The people you date attract drama like a moth to light, yet never acknowledge they attract it themselves.

4. Your dates often insult or make fun of you in front of others then claim they're 'only joking' when you react to their words - yet you still feel a need to win their approval.

5. You feel anxious, stressed, or insecure when you're around them yet continue to date them.

6. They are overly negative about all of your friends and give you various reasons why you should end these friendships.

7. They make you question yourself and doubt yourself frequently.

8. You feel like you need to spend all of your free time always seeking validation from strangers, yet quickly grow bored of talking to the same person.
