Now, all you see are her bad qualities, you can’t even be bothered to arrange a date to keep the passion alive
Relationships can be very complex. They tend to start off fun and exciting; however, as time passes, your differences might become more serious and the relationship could take a turn for the worse. If you have the slightest doubt that your relationship is in trouble, these 8 signs should help you figure out if it’s time to cut your losses and avoid wasting any more time in a dead-end relationship.
1. You often think about your life without her
If you find yourself constantly daydreaming about a bachelor’s life, romanticizing past relationships, and thinking about meeting new women, these are all signs that your current relationship is doomed.
2. Neither of you can leave the past in the past
It’s a common deal-breaker in relationships to keep bringing up past issues during arguments to use as ammunition against your other half. If you can’t learn to forgive and forget – or your partner can’t learn to forgive and forget a mistake that you have made – then it might be time to cut all ties and start fresh.
3. You don’t communicate anymore
When you first started dating, the two of you talked about everything. Now, however, you can’t even be bothered to text, let alone call her and you’ve even started ignoring her attempts to contact you.
4. Sexual relations have stopped
Does your woman have no interest in having sex with you anymore? Does she always tell you that she’s not in the mood or that she’s tired or had a long day? If you can’t remember the last time you got busy between the sheets, it’s usually an indication that the spark has gone and it’s time to move on to greener pastures.
5. You argue all the time
Sure, some amount of arguing is normal in relationships, but if you are constantly picking fights with one another and arguing and has become the only interaction the two of you have, it’s time to move on.
6. There’s a lack of effort
When you first met, you pulled out all the romantic stops. You loved to surprise her with cute love notes all the time, home-cooked dinner nights and picnics on the beach. Now, all you see are her bad qualities, you can’t even be bothered to arrange a date to keep the passion alive and you’re actually happier just sitting at home watching TV by yourself.
7. The two of you spend more time with friends than each other
In a relationship, it’s normal to spend time with your friends, but, if you see your friends more than you see each other, your relationship is in danger.
8. There’s no more talk about the future
The two of you have started using “I” instead of “we” and neither of you are willing to talk about future plans together.
