These 10 Subtle Signs Will Tell If You’re In A Dead-End Relationship
Are you in a relationship that’s going nowhere?
A lot of couples will try to force their relationships in ways that just aren’t meant to be. We are all taught that we have to work hard for the things that we want the most in life and that includes love. That’s why a lot of people will always try to fight hard for the love that they think they deserve. Sometimes, that means that people in relationships will try to fight for a love that just doesn’t have a shot at going all the way.
When people get stuck in relationships that evidently have no future, there’s no point in staying and working at it. Sometimes, it would just be better off for everyone to call it quits and move on to greater things. There’s no shame in trying your best to make something work and failing at it. Not everything is meant to be in this world and you have to understand that early on. That’s why if you happen to be caught in a relationship that just doesn’t have a fighting chance, walk away while it’s early. If you don’t know what that kind of relationship looks like, then read on until the end of this article.
1. You have this lingering feeling that you think you can do much better.
You know you’re just settling for whatever it is you have right now. You know that you can do so much better with regards to your romantic life. There is absolutely nothing special about the relationship that you’re in at the moment, and you know it all too well. There is no doubt in your mind that the love you deserve is still out there waiting for you to find it.
2. Your relationship is boring.
You’re in a constant rut and it’s not something you think you could ever climb yourselves out of. You have settled into a routine with how you go about your relationship and there is nothing exciting going on anymore between the two of you. You are no longer able to make each other’s heart race.
3. You don’t help one another to fulfill each other’s goals.
Relationships are supposed to be all about teamwork. The best kinds of relationships have people who commit themselves to facing the world as a team. If neither of you are committed to helping one another out when it comes to achieving your hopes and dreams, can you really still be considered to be in a relationship? – Continue reading on the next page
4. You are constantly irritated by one another.
Occasional irritation in relationships is normal. However, constant irritation is a definite sign that you are getting fed up with one another. You can’t stand one another and you hate that you’re in a relationship together. You hate the fact that you’re stuck with each other and you resent one another for it.
5. One of you practice cheating on some level.
Whether it’s an emotional kind of cheating or a physical kind of infidelity, if at least one of you are cheating on some sort of level, then the relationship is doomed. Infidelity is the leading cause of divorce in the world and you can never expect a relationship to ever be healthy when cheating is involved.
6. You don’t have a good sex life.
Sex is important in any relationship. Having an active sex life means that you are both still very much attracted to each other and that you’re both willing to explore new things as a couple. However, if your sex life is mediocre and sad, then that is a direct manifestation of your entire relationship.
7. Marriage is out of the question.
If you have no plans of getting married because you can’t stand each other, then what’s the point of being in a relationship at all? You don’t really have to get married, but you have to at least enjoy each other’s company. – Continue reading on the next page
8. One of you is being too dependent.
Deadweight is never good in a relationship. It has the power to bring the relationship down to its knees. That’s why if at least one of you is being too dependent and is serving as deadweight for the other person in the relationship, then your union is doomed. Nothing good can come from this kind of union at all.
9. You live your individual lives more than your shared lives.
Relationships are all about having shared lives. You share your time, emotions, opinions, hobbies, passions, and interests with one another. However, when you’re in a relationship wherein you rarely share anything at all, then that really isn’t a healthy kind of relationship. You might as well be strangers who occasionally see each other when the universe permits it.
10. People are telling you that you should move on.
One of the greatest indicators that you are in a doomed relationship is when people on the outside are telling you about it. A lot of the time, a third-party perspective is very much valid especially when dealing with toxic relationships that have no future.
