Red flags and dating
We talk a lot here about “red flags” that warn you that a job may not be one you’ll be happy in.
But red flags can be tough to spot when you really, really want (or need) a job; it’s often pretty easy to overlook danger signs.
THE RED FLAGS: After all Perks are read, and beginning once again with the player to the Single’s left, each player plays a Red Flag onto the player to their left.
DEBATE: Now the players argue why the Single should pick their character to date and reject the other candidates.
You get a text that seems like it was meant for someone else.
"Baby" is code for "I think wearing puka shell necklaces is cool, and no matter where we go, I'm secretly going to do coke in the bathroom."12.
You're really hitting it off, but the dude is basically a ghost. No one who online dates is "off the grid." He's hiding a dark secret (or he just has a girlfriend).2. And then suddenly you don't hear from him for 12 hours. Either his mom gets sick or he gets a flat tire or his mom gets sick again. Bailing eight times means he's hoping you'll send him nude pictures without him ever having to actually meet you.9. He's always complaining about the long hours he works, but he makes really good money, so it's OK. Everyone likes to talk themselves up when you first meet them, but he really forces conversations in odd directions just to get the chance to make himself look cool. Unless you are actually a giant baby, Benjamin Button-style, there's no reason for some guy you don't know to call you that.
And sometimes we're so nervous and worried that our first date will suck, that we make it seem a lot better than it is.
When either the Perk or Red Flag decks run out, shuffle the discard pile and use that as your new deck.
HOW TO WIN: For a short game, play twice around the table.
And sometimes you don’t realize something was a red flag until it’s too late and you’re already in the job.
I thought it would be helpful and interesting to pool our experience so other people can benefit from it.
Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.
