A dating coach has revealed three things men say that he sees as warning signs when dating.
Jacob Lucas is a UK-based trainer who has used his real-life methods to “help millions of people get the love life they’ve always wanted.”
He is the author of the guide Her Dating Coach, a creator on TikTok where he has more than 765,000 followers, and he works directly with clients.
In one Videohe shared three things men say that he called “red flags” and captioned the clip, “Do you know anyone who tells you these things?”
The text on the screen described the talking points he wanted to discuss, as well as a reason why he believed these things were potentially problematic in dating.

Jacob’s video clip begins with text on the screen that reads: “Three things men say to you that are a warning sign.”
The first point is: “When he tells you he has a lot of money.”
Additional text on the screen then explains why this may be a red flag.
It says: ‘“People who have a lot of money don’t usually brag about it.”
The second point raised in the video is: ““When he tries to explain to you why he’s an alpha male.”
That’s problematic, the video says, because it’s “as if he was trying to convince himself that it was him.”
The last point raised in the video concerns the way he talks about his ex – and in this case, the context (i.e. when he says it) also plays a role.
It says: “If he wants to explain to you why his ex was wrong on a date with you.”
Jacob followed the video with a second one Partwhich was also titled “3 Things Men Say to You That Are a Warning Sign – Part 2.”
The points he shares in this episode are more about positive qualities that some men claim to have – and why it can be a warning sign when men verbalize that they have these qualities.
The text that appears on the screen reads in the first paragraph: “He ALWAYS tells you he’s ‘such an HONEST guy’ for no reason.”
This is “very suspicious,” Jacob explains in the video.

The second thing the dating expert raises as a red flag is when a man “tells you he can get any woman he wants.”
Jacob humorously points out: “He definitely can’t do that.”
Finally, the third red flag he raises in Part 2 of the series concerns the moment when it appears as if someone is trying too hard.
Jacob writes on the screen: “He’s ALWAYS trying to convince you that he’s a REALLY GOOD GUY.”
This is potentially problematic, he says, because, “If he’s a good guy, he doesn’t have to convince you.”
