When you enter into a romantic relationship with someone, you don’t expect it to fail. You have high hopes and look forward to a promising future with the one you’ve fallen in love with. You don’t expect to have to recognize when to end a relationship, because you don’t see an end.
But not all relationships work out perfectly, even if the two people involved seem perfect for each other. Over time, you might realize that this person just isn’t right for you, or the relationship becomes toxic and you can’t see a way to make things better.
Reading the signs is always a hard thing to do when your mind is clouded with hope and love. But it’s important to know when it’s time to move on, otherwise you’re wasting your time with someone who gives you nothing but misery.
# The spark is missing
You don’t know why you’re in the relationship anymore. The romance is missing, there’s no chemistry or companionship, and both of you just exist in each other’s lives without any special reason.
When the spark has gone, it may be time to move on.
# You’re hurting
You’re misunderstood, hurt or angry all the time. Sometimes, you don’t even know why, but just thinking of your partner hurts you or annoys you. And sadly, even if you haven’t given this a thought, you haven’t been happy for a very long time.
# You’re being taken for granted
Your partner uses you, manipulates your understanding nature and takes you for granted, no matter how nice you are to them. You’ve been doing all the giving, in the hope that your partner will see how selfless and loving you are. You hope they’ll change for the better some day.
# You don’t see a future
You’re satisfied with your relationship, and you’re happy-ish. But every time you’re alone or try to see where your relationship is going, your mind tells you that your relationship has no future. And as hard as you try to visualize a perfect tomorrow, you can’t see your partner as a long-term lover.
This is one of the biggest signs it’s time to move on.
# Your partner is uninvolved
Your partner doesn’t care enough to play an active part in your life, nor do they even try to understand your life. They’re emotionally uninvolved and unavailable, even when you try to make them feel included.
# Sexual intimacy is becoming rare
You can’t remember the last time you made love. You’ve tried your best to bring the sizzle back into the bedroom, but your partner prefers to turn the other way and feign sleep. And it feels worse when you catch your partner admiring others when both of you are walking down the street.
# You can’t think of what holds you together anymore
Are you in the relationship only because of the baggage that holds the both of you together? If the reason for the existence of the romantic relationship isn’t love, then you’re only fooling yourself if you believe it’ll ever bring you any happiness.
Perhaps you can’t even pinpoint what holds you together anymore, you’re just there because of habit and history. In that case, it’s time to move on.
# There are deep trust issues
You don’t trust your partner anymore. There may be a genuine reason for the lack of trust, or perhaps, both of you just have different expectations from each other when it comes to trust and believing in each other.But unless you overcome all of this, the love will only fade even more.
