Have you been unfortunate enough to be in this situation?
Great. You are now in a relationship. You’ve managed to meet someone who is interested in getting to know you better. You’re with a person who is open to exploring the depths of your soul. Relationships are always going to be learning processes for couples.
No couple ever goes into a relationship having everything figured out. That’s why the best kinds of couples are those that never stop learning and growing with each other. It should also be known that there are no such things as perfect relationships. These perfect relationships only exist in fantasy lands. In real life, relationships have lots of problems and they can get very messy. Sometimes, relationships won’t end up working out as these couples initially hoped.
If you are in the unfortunate situation of being caught in a toxic relationship, then you might as well end things right away.

You should have the kind of emotional connection that allows you to operate on the same wavelength most of the time.
2. You have no chemistry whatsoever.
Chemistry is important in a relationship. There’s no denying that. While chemistry in a relationship is practically impossible to measure, it can still definitely be felt by those who are experiencing it. You and your partner should have a natural free-flowing chemistry whenever you’re interacting with one another.
3. You are never on the receiving end of a compliment.
Love and affection can be expressed in various intimate ways. Never miss an opportunity to let your partner know that you find them attractive, handsome, or beautiful. Congratulate your partner whenever you’re proud of their achievements. If you feel like you never get any of these expressions of endearment, then maybe your love isn’t as real as you thought. - Continue reading on the next page
