THE topic of ‘red flags’ has been trending lately, with many people giving warning signs to others on what they should be aware of before getting into a relationship with someone.
And attempting to speed up a relationship can in fact be a ‘red flag’ for certain people.
One woman has expressed her recent experience of just this as she claims her date demanded she "commit to him exclusively" after knowing each other for just 90 minutes.
She even took to Twitter and shared screenshots to prove.
The pictures show her messaging a man, whom she originally matched with on Tinder an hour and a half before.
It then shows him saying that he was only interested in seeing her if she could promise she wouldn't be talking to other potential dates at the same time.

The woman, who posts on Twitter under the username @SgtDGumby, wrote in her tweet: "Dude I matched with 90 minutes ago on Tinder wants me to commit to him exclusively right this second, before even talking on the phone."
In the screenshots, the man told her: "I will say that if it's me then it's me only. If you want the freedom to talk to others at the same time and have those exploratory chats, I won't be it."
In the text message, the woman’s first response was that she would “make that decision tomorrow”.
However, the man wasn’t happy with her response.

“And I don't care to have the 'who needs who financially' [talk]. I'm not woke or care to be, to be honest."

"What do you feel about me/the situation?"

He said: "I like only being with one person. I'm not talking to others.
"I want to meet somebody and be with them. I don't like competing or having somebody else dating around."
Many people on Twitter were quick to discuss their thoughts on this particular scenario.

Another added: "Wow, you need at least six people to neatly unfold that red flag."
But someone else disagreed, stating: "Frankly, this is a good attitude. He's being honest, showing his hand and you know to run. Also, if we were all so self-confident and assertive – that would be a good thing."
