His manipulation isn’t a dealbreaker. Just kidding! It is

His weird habit of pretending to cancel a date to "test" her isn't just annoying. It could be a red flag.

Hi, Carolyn: I’ve been on a few dates with “Jack.” I like him and am trying to give our connection a chance; I am notorious for writing people off for minor reasons and then regretting it.

But he’s done a weird thing a couple of times now in just two weeks of dating. He will say or do something weird or annoying — like pretend he has to cancel a date five minutes before we’re supposed to meet — only to then say, “Just kidding! I just wanted to see how you’d react.”

Eye roll.
