10 People to Avoid When Dating
Beware of the angry dater
“Anger is a red flag issue that may not come out until the pressure of the ceremony creeps closer and closer,” writes Arterburn in Is This The One?
“Anger, rage, bitterness and animosity can all come to the surface after being covered up successfully. If you don’t believe how bad it can get watch one of the reality shows like Bridezillas. If you see this out of control behavior before marriage I shudder at the thought of what you might see after you are married. It can only get worse and often ends in physical abuse. So when rage and anger surface it is time to lace up your Nike’s and race to the nearest exit.
"Of all the people you might be tempted to think you can fix, this is the one you are most delusional about. A dater has to be in some state of desperate denial to move forward after seeing intense anger, bitterness and rage. Your rejection may cause more anger but it could be the thing that motivates that person to get the help that is needed. You will either live a life of relief or regret. Don’t choose the path of regret and ignore the pathology that can hurt your future and hurt every area of your life today.”
