4 Incredible Green Flags From Wonderful People To Brighten Your Day

A two-photo collage. The first photo shows a man running from a distance, a massive green flag waving in the air as they run with it. The second photo shows a man pouring orange juice from a measuring cup into a store-bought bottle of orange juice through a funnel. Text on the image reads: My Dad straining the pulp out of the orange juice because he accidentally bought my mom the wrong kind.

None of us are perfect. Still, it can be important to watch out for particularly concerning traits or behaviors in the folks we choose to let into our lives, whether that person be a romantic partner, friend, or even a family member. These signs are often called “red flags.” In other words, behaviors like gaslighting, anger issues, and lying. But have you ever heard of green flags?

To demonstrate what these flags look like in real life, he reacts to videos online, deeming them red or green. Keep scrolling to appreciate the wholesome green flags he’s come across.
