Bronstein spoke exclusively with The Sun to share what she believes are the most important red flags to look out for on a first date.

The love expert shares her tips with her 91k followers on Instagram, and urges people to use their intuition when it comes to dating.

“If you feel like something doesn’t feel right, or it seems a little off, then trust that,” she said.

“If there’s an alert in your conciseness telling you to ‘run,’ or that ‘this is weird,’ trust that.”

Bronstein shared the top nine red flags to look out for on a first date, and said that “if the person has any of these things, you want to run.”


“If someone is name dropping or brand dropping, like instead of saying they have a car they say ‘I have a Ferrari,’ it’s very unattractive,” she said.

“Cocky is very different than confident.”

“It might mean that they’re just nervous or that they’re insecure, but the point is that it probably isn’t going to change.”

“If they talk negatively about their ex or are criticizing their ex in anyway, it’s once again just not attractive,” said Bronstein.

Along with juddgeing their ex, the expert said if they begin to judge or criticize you, that’s also a huge red flag.

“It’s negative energy, and it’s not attractive.”

“It’s giving you insight into their personality, and why they think it’ appropriate to talk like that, is not something that you want to bring into your relationship.”

She said this also applies to them talking negatively about friends and family as well.

“Do you really want to get involved with someone when this could happen to you?”


“If they don’t ask you questions, if they’re only talking about themself, first of all that’s not an enjoyable conversation to have.”

“It means that they’re vain and just full of themselves,” she said.

“Why would you want to be in a relationship like that?”


Bronstein said that if your date is spending time looking at their phone or around the room or really anywhere other than you, they’re not the one.

“They’re just not being present,” she said.

“If you’re on a date, you want your date to actually be there with you. Or else it’s not fun, not enjoyable, why are you even sitting there?”


Nothing is more embarrassing than someone who is rude to your waiter/waitress.

“That can extrapolate to how they treat other people,” said the expert.

“You want to be with someone who treats people kindly.”


When your date comments on the price of something, it puts you both in an uncomfortable situation.

“I feel like my stomach would just drop,” Bronstein said.

“It’s like where do you go from there, what do you say?” 

“Not everybody has to be a millionaire, obviously, but it shows this person is conscious about money, which is good, but that little example could turn into huge fights in a relationship.”

“I guarantee it will cause money problems in the relationship and you don’t want to deal with it.”


Bronstein said if your date is too sexual too fast or talks about sex too much, you should run.

“If they say things like ‘so are you going to come over later?’ Or repeatedly bring up sex or the two of you that evening or in the near future, it’s just not classy.”

“Some people like that because it makes them feel validated or important if they’re insecure, but a secure person wouldn’t.”

“It doesn’t make the other person feel respected.”


If your date is treating your outing like their back in college, the love expert said that it’s “just not good.”

“If you’re not a big drinker and they are, it’s definitely not attractive.”

“Even if you are a big drinker and they are, it just causes a lot of problems.”

“Drinking too much is never, never a good thing.”


“If he lets you pay, run,” said the relationship coach.

“Sometimes if a guy lets you pay, or pay half of it, it just means that he’s not that into you.”

“It’s just a disrespectful thing and makes you feel bad about yourself.”

The Love Talk Live host shared her acronym for A.V.O.I.D., which she uses as a first date red flag checklist.

“If the person has any of these things, you want to run.”

The letter ‘A’ stands for arrogance, ‘V’ for vain, ‘O’ for Out of control, ‘I’ for Ignores you, and ‘D’ for dishonest.

She also advises her clients to keep dates as short as possible if they’re not having a good time.

““Even if it’s 15 minutes and you’re like ‘I do not want to be here anymore.’”

Porn and Mental Health: The Challenges and Strategies for Coping in the Industry 0 178

Pornography is a billion-dollar industry that has gained widespread popularity across the globe. However, while it may be a source of entertainment for some, the industry can be challenging for performers’ mental health. The pressure to perform and meet the expectations of producers and viewers can take a toll on performers’ mental wellbeing. In this article, we’ll explore the challenges that the porn industry poses to mental health and strategies for coping with them.

The Challenges

  1. Stigma and Shame

The porn industry is still stigmatized, and performers can face a lot of shame and judgment from society. This can lead to a lot of stress and anxiety, making it difficult for performers to seek help and support when needed.

  1. Pressure to Perform

Performers in the porn industry are expected to meet certain expectations and perform at their best every time. This pressure can be overwhelming and can lead to feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem.

  1. Isolation and Loneliness

Performing in the porn industry can be a lonely experience, with performers spending long hours on set or on their own, away from friends and family. This can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can take a toll on mental health.

  1. Trauma and Abuse

The porn industry is not immune to issues such as sexual harassment, assault, and exploitation. Performers may experience these traumatic events, leading to conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression.

Strategies for Coping

Seek Professional Help

Performers in the porn industry should seek professional help and support when they need it. There are many therapists and counselors who specialize in working with performers in the industry and can help with issues such as anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Practice Self-Care

Self-care is crucial for performers in the porn industry. Taking breaks when needed, exercising, and practicing mindfulness and meditation can help performers manage stress and promote mental wellbeing.

Surround Yourself with Supportive People

Having a supportive network of friends, family, and colleagues can make a big difference in performers’ mental health. Surrounding yourself with people who understand the challenges of the industry and offer non-judgmental support can help performers cope with the stresses of the job.

Address Trauma and Abuse

Performers who have experienced trauma and abuse in the industry should seek support and address these issues head-on. This may involve therapy, reporting incidents to the authorities, and taking legal action if necessary.


The porn industry poses significant challenges to performers’ mental health, from stigma and shame to pressure to perform and trauma and abuse. However, with the right strategies, performers can cope with these challenges and maintain good mental wellbeing. Seeking professional help, practicing self-care, surrounding yourself with supportive people, and addressing trauma and abuse are just a few strategies that can help performers in the porn industry maintain good mental health.

Navigating Consent and Boundaries in the Porn Industry: A Guide for Newcomers 0 165

Consent and boundaries are crucial aspects of the porn industry, and it’s essential for newcomers to understand how to navigate these issues. In this article, we’ll provide a guide for those who are new to the industry on how to approach consent and boundaries in a professional and respectful manner.

First and foremost, it’s important to understand that consent is always required in the porn industry. This means that every actor must give explicit and enthusiastic consent to any sexual act that is portrayed on camera. Consent can be given verbally or non-verbally, but it must always be clear and enthusiastic.

In order to ensure that consent is obtained, communication is key. Actors should have open and honest conversations with their scene partners and the director prior to filming. They should discuss what they are comfortable with and what their boundaries are, as well as any specific instructions or concerns.

It’s also important for actors to feel empowered to set their own boundaries and to speak up if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe during filming. This means that if an actor does not want to perform a particular act or if they feel that their boundaries are being pushed, they have the right to stop the scene and speak to the director about their concerns.

It’s also essential for actors to be aware of their own physical and emotional limits. This means that they should take breaks as needed, communicate with their scene partner and director about any discomfort or pain, and engage in self-care practices to ensure that they are physically and emotionally prepared for the demands of the job.

Finally, it’s important for actors to have a support system in place. This can include talking to other actors who have experience in the industry, seeking out counseling or therapy, and having trusted friends and family members who can provide emotional support.

Navigating consent and boundaries in the porn industry can be challenging, but it’s an essential part of maintaining a safe and respectful work environment. By following these guidelines, newcomers to the industry can ensure that they are approaching these issues in a professional and responsible manner.
