Etiquette expert Anna Bey shares warning signs that your date is toxic

The Elegance Coach has listed warning signs that could indicate you’re dating someone toxic.

In a YouTube video, Anna Bey said it’s important to understand if you’re dating a narcissist, if you’re being “love bombed” or trusting someone new too easily.

Ms Bey, from Geneva, Switzerland, shared examples of each warning sign, citing “Tinder Swindler,” a popular Netflix true-crime documentary about an accused scammer who seduces women on dating apps for money.

Ms Bey urged women to “be mindful” and notice someone’s actions and how they behave in order to understand their true intentions.

To understand if someone is toxic, it’s important to learn about different behavioral traits.

You are dating a narcissist, psychopath or sociopath

First, Ms. Bey said that everyone should be able to distinguish between a narcissist, a psychopath, and a sociopath.

The Oxford Dictionary classifies a narcissist as a person who overly admires himself, and a psychopath as a person suffering from a mental disorder with aggressive social behavior.

In comparison, a sociopath is defined as a person with a personality disorder.

Ms Bey urged women to “do their own research” or talk to a specialist about the three characteristics and how these people might behave with others or on dates.

Are you the “perfect victim” for manipulation?

In the documentary, a man who appeared to be rich swindles several women into thousands of dollars.

For this reason, Ms. Bey asked to consider whether you are the “perfect prey” to be manipulated into thinking about your own behavior – for example, that you appear desperate or too easily gullible.

“You might be confused as to why the warning sign is now only about you,” she said in the video.

Ms Bey went on to say that she believes scammers are “looking for their victims” and often attack women who are “easily trusted” or experiencing a “form of desperation.”

She added that “despair leads to danger” of possibly compromising your own values, boundaries, and began to completely ignore the warning signs.

If they “love to bomb” you

“Love bombing” is a term used to describe when someone showers you with attention, gifts, or constant text messages to make you feel comfortable and let your guard down.

But Ms Bey said to “be careful” if this happens as it is often used as a manipulation strategy.

“It’s incredibly effective with women because we often dream of that attention and all that commitment,” she said.

Ms Bey said that love bombardment can be done in a number of different ways, such as showing someone with gifts, words of praise, or contemplating a future together.

If they ask you to borrow money

Ms Bey said to be “suspect” if your partner asks you to borrow money, especially if it’s early in the relationship.

“There will be real people who need real help, but you need to really assess the situation correctly,” she said.

‘If anyone asks you [for money]evaluate the relationship first and also look at their request – is this a strange request or a normal request?”

“If someone asks you to use your savings or take out loans, you may have fallen into the trap of someone who is trying to scam you.”
