THE ‘red flags’ issue has been trending lately, with many people warning others about what to look out for before starting a relationship with someone.
And trying to rush a relationship can actually be a red flag for certain people.
One woman has opened up about her recent experience of this when she claims her date demanded that she become “solely committed to him” after only knowing each other for 90 minutes.
She even took to Twitter and shared screenshots to prove it.
The images show her texting a man she originally matched on Tinder with an hour and a half earlier.
It then shows him saying that he would only be interested in seeing her if she could promise not to talk to other potential dates at the same time.
The woman who posts on Twitter under the username @SgtDGumbywrote in her tweet, “Guy I matched on Tinder 90 minutes ago wants me to make an exclusive commitment to him right this second before I even speak on the phone.”
In the screenshots, the man told her: “I’ll say if it’s me, it’s just me. If you want the freedom to talk to others at the same time and have those exploratory conversations, it won’t be me.”
In the text, the woman’s first response was that she would “make that decision tomorrow.”
However, the man was not satisfied with her answer.
He said, “Nope. I won’t be in the mix and you choose. It’s either first to see how it is with just me, or not. I’m too tired to compete.
“And I don’t care who needs whom financially. [talk]. I haven’t woken up or want to, to be honest.”
In the comments, the woman also shared more screenshots.
The pictures revealed more of the man’s behavior, in which he texted her again at 4:30am to ask if she had had time to think about his demands.
He wrote: “Good morning. How are you? do you want to meet up today
“What do you think about me/the situation?”
I won’t be in the mix and you choose. It’s either first to see how it’s just me, or not. I’m too tired to compete
In an additional post, the anonymous woman revealed they had another conversation in which he admitted he didn’t want to “compete” with anyone else.
He said: “I like being with just one person. I don’t talk to others.
“I want to meet someone and be with them. I don’t like competing or going out with anyone else.”
Many people on Twitter were quick to discuss their thoughts on this particular scenario.

Some thought the man’s demands were “red flags,” while others praised him for being honest about what he wanted from his dating experience.
One person said, “All I ever see is bullets being dodged when someone posts anything about online dating.”
Another added: “Wow you need at least six people to properly unfurl that red flag.”
But someone else disagreed, saying: “Honestly, that’s a good attitude. He’s honest, shows his hand and you know you have to run. Also, if we were all that confident and assertive – that would be a good thing.”
