Don’t be a romance-addict. Learn to have a life outside of your relationship. If you find yourself being guilty of some of the items on this list, then you really need to dial things back a little in your relationship.
There are few things in the world more charming than having two people who share a mutual love for each other. The undeniable chemistry and healthy interaction between two individuals in love can make for such a view. However, there must always be constant balance and moderation between people who are in relationships. Love is a beautiful thing, and a lot of people are susceptible to letting the romantic aspects of their lives consume them entirely. Little do they know that their overindulgence in love can lead to the potential destruction of their relationships, and consequently, their lives as well.
The bad news is that people are just naturally wired to be dependent. It’s all part of our animal instincts to be social beings. What we have to make sure is that we never grow overly dependent on other people. We cannot allow ourselves to determine our self-worth based on our relationship status. Don’t be a romance-addict. Learn to have a life outside of your relationship. If you find yourself being guilty of some of the items on this list, then you really need to dial things back a little in your relationship.
1. You have regular sexual escapades at inappropriate settings.
While having an active sex life can be good for a relationship, it only works to an extent. If you and your partner are always engaging in sexual acts at inappropriate settings, then that’s a sign of relationship addiction.
2. You find yourself virtually incapable of being away from your partner.
You don’t know what to do with yourself, and so your first impulse is to make contact with your partner immediately. It’s as if you are incapacitated whenever your partner isn’t around.
3. You are always going broke for your relationship.
Be more financially responsible. You can’t possibly think that going broke for the sake of your relationship is a good idea. This is not a sustainable method of living. You need to be more intelligent in your approach to life. Don’t get your partner a lavish gift if you know you can’t afford it.
4. Whenever you’re bored, you compulsively turn to your partner for companionship.
You don’t even go to your friends, your siblings, or your parents. It’s always your partner. A lot of people will keep themselves occupied with books, hobbies, movies, or other activities when they’re bored. They don’t immediately turn to their partners.
