24 Dudes Share The Red Flags They Use To Identify “Crazy” Girls

Compiled from AskReddit. My own red flag? A few years ago I heard someone say that anyone that drives an open top Jeep is a crazy person — and could confirm it’s true since my sister drove one at the time and she is legitimately (and proudly) a crazy person. Read a companion article, 31 Women Share The Red Flags To Identify “Crazy” Men, here.

She’s a victim

If she plays the victim constantly, too well, she isn’t the victim.

“Everyone is against me” is a fucking great way to tell if a bitch is crazy

“I hate drama.”

“I don’t cause the drama but it always seems to find me”



None of her kids have the same last name.

Girls who love horses

women who are crazy about horses are essentially rich cat ladies.

“I’m not like other girls.”

If she throws the ” I’m not like other girls. ” She’s either insane or an insane bitch. Ex-wife for proof

Wedding Crashers

The trifecta

“Everyone doesn’t like me, my family won’t even talk to me… I don’t know why!” Pro tip: Run.

She has problems at work

A dead give away is knowing how many people she has problems with at work. 1-2 is typical. 3-4 now I’m skeptical. 5+ she is most likely crazy and the problem.

Free time

Overly attached too soon; seems to have loads of free time and no real friends to speak of and I know I might be a minority here, but going straight to something really kinky as well.

The original NSA

If, after dating for a few days, she grabs your phone without permission and starts going through it. The original NSA…women.

Identifies with crazy people

She loves reading Sylvia Plath.

Dramatic meme user

I have always noticed chicks that post those dramatic facebook meme/quotes/pictures.

Example: “Sometimes 2 people need to be lost in order to find each other again” with a background pic of a sunset….

Yea, those bitches are crazy.

They have no female friends

“I’m only friends with guys, girls are just too crazy” At that point I know there’s gonna be something up.


More than two rings.

<—-Personally guilty of this

New Age nonsense: Healing crystals, personal deity/protector/guide spirits, auras, Ancient Medicine, Atlantis.


If you meet on a dating site and her profile states she’s not looking for a fuck buddy, yet shortly after you start talking she sends you naughty pictures when you haven’t even met face to face, get the fuck out of there.

Excessive calling/texting

When she leaves 11 voice mails in a two hour period.

Shitty to service workers

subtle cues: continually looks over your shoulder when you text someone, acts shitty to service workers, is not very clean.
this type of insecurity and these cues will be detrimental to a relationship in the long-run.


No desire in life but to be a mother.

The Office

She’s kinky

A good rule of thumb is crazy in bed means crazy in the head.

Works at a salon


Manipulative crying

Crying about stupid things. Especially in the context of trying to get her way or convince you of something.

Holy shit

Im a girl, but my best friend is a crazy bitch walking red flag.

She beat up a guy (seriously; black eyes and all) over a burger king breakfast sandwich.

Stabbed a guy with a fork for getting febreeze in her mashed potatoes.

Says ‘Im going to say you raped me’ to every guy who makes her mad.

Its really hard being her friend because we are polar opposites and I blatantly tell her how disturbed she is but we have been friends since we were babies so its hard to cut ties.

Can confirm this one

Quoting Marilyn Monroe. Specifically, “If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best.”


She’s willing to date me :( Thought Catalog Logo Mark
