What happens when you realize that you’re forcing yourself to be with someone who isn’t right for you? You’re in a relationship for the wrong reasons and the only things convincing you to stay are your family or common friends, attraction, lust, unrealistic expectations and dependency. Like we said, all the wrong reasons.
Love comes in levels and if you experience some of these signs, then you might rethink your relationship.
1. You Can’t Stand Him/Her
The littlest thing, like the sound of her voice or the way he eats his sandwich, annoys you. When she holds your hand or when he doesn’t hold your hand. You are always criticizing him, maybe that ought to fix him. The things that wouldn’t usually irritate you seem to be driving you nuts.
2. You Avoid Her/Him As Much As You Can
3. You Just Don’t Miss Them
4. He’s a Burden
5. Romance Turns You Off
His romantic moves do not impress you at all, in fact you think he’s trying too hard and that’s a huge turn off for you. You force out a smile, but you know deep inside that it’s cheesy and totally ovarrr awi ya3ni.
6. Nothing is Fun
Whether it’s an over the top date like sunbathing by the most beautiful ocean or just hanging out together watching a movie, nothing seems to be fazing you- everything is just meh.
7. Reasons To Break Up
You’ve already thought about possible reasons to end the relationship. Things might be going really well that you can’t seem to find “breaking points”, so you pin it on his personality or the mere fact that there is no chemistry, or maybe that he isn’t really your type. But this relationship has to end.
It is always great to have someone around that cares about you, but love comes in levels like we said earlier. You don’t love your friends the same way you love your parents, and you don’t love your parents the same way you love your partner.
It’s a complicated circle. You can go through difficult times and it’s fine if you can’t stand your other half- the problem is if those shutting out feelings are persistent. That’s when you need to re-evaluate your relationship as a whole and ask yourself, is it worth it?
