It is quite easy to recognise the signs that your relationship is about to hit the rocks but a lot of us would rather Bury our heads in the sand. However, some of us may just not be able to determine if an imminent break up is in the offing, except we hear hear our partners tell us straight up.
Whichever category you may fall into, here are the signs that you should recognise that tells you that when it’s over, it’s over.
You’re Always Trying To Avoid Them
If you find yourself hanging around at work until 7pm, going to the gym simply because you want to get some peace and quiet away from the house, and preferring to have a hangout with your friends at the bar, rather than spend time with your girl, a break up may be imminent.
If you’re actively seeking ways to avoid your partner as opposed to prioritising and spending quality time with her, then there may be a break up in the offing.
While you may have legitimate reasons to scroll through your shady partner’s texts or it could be that you’re being paranoid and controlling, being jealous tends to expose the fact that you have trust issues that can erode the foundation of your relationship.
If your partner has reasons to be jealous of you, especially if you’re spending a lot of time wondering if the grass would be greener with someone else, then you’ve got the hint that it may be time to call it a day.
Your Sex Life Has Taken A Dip
Having a boring sex life or a practically dead one may be a sign that your relationship is about to tank. Physical attraction is absolutely non-negotiable, which means that if things have dried up in the bedroom, you may need to take some steps back to fix it or walk away altogether.
However, if you discover tbat mind-blowing sex is the only thing keeping you together, then chances are you don’t have a foundation for anything long-term.
You Have A On again, off again Relationship
Taking a break then getting back together can be a sign of maturity, as it can make you realise that your life’s better off with your partner in it than not in it. If you however constantly get in and out of a relationship, it may be a sign of a short memory and an indication that you’re more interested in the idea of a relationship than the actual partnership itself.
Thinking, ‘Oh well, it’s better than being alone’ is a terrible reason to stay in a relationship.
You Get Irritated Easily
If you find little things such as her chewing with her mouth open, leaving dirty clothes piled up in the bathroom and leaving Make-up in the sink, irritating and getting under your skin, it may be time for a break up.
When her annoying habits really start bothering you, it is an indication that there are deep seated dramas eating away at your relationship.
You Hardly Fight Or Fight A Lot
If you find yourself not having the passion for a fight every so often, it is just as worrying as having to fight all the time as it ma ma an indication that you have both given up.
Every couple fights, and you will only be overreacting if you call it quits after a fight or two. Having slanging matches shouldn’t become the norm, especially if it is over petty issues like putting out the bins or whose turn it is to wash the plated.
