Knowing when a relationship is over can be difficult, many of us find ourselves wanting to hold on to something that no longer exists. It is best if we can just cut our losses and walk away, but how do you know when it is time to walk away? If you notice the following in your relationship, it may be time to end it and move on to something else.
Lack of communication. When you are in the same room together, do you speak to each other or is there just silence. If you are no longer communicating with your partner your relationship is on its way to an end.
Lack of intimacy. If you used to be all over each other and now find that you can barely stand to touch each other, your relationship is ending very quickly. Without physical intimacy you cannot feel connected to your partner and it is time to move on.
The relationship has become boring. If you find that you never have any fun with your partner and a night together usually consists of eating dinner in front of the television your relationship is in trouble. It may not be over yet if this is the only sign and with a little effort you can put the fun back in your relationship. If you do not take the time now to fix this problem you can plan on the relationship ending very soon.
Do you pick fights? If you find that you are constantly picking fights with each other this is a bad sign that the relationship needs to be ended. If all you do is fight why would you want to be with that person anyway?
Do you find that even the smallest things they do drive you crazy? Remember how when you first got together you thought how he lightly snored was so cute? If it is driving you crazy now than you may as well accept that this is the beginning of the end of this relationship. When you can’t even stand the small things your partner does that they have no control over you need to let them go.
Have you stopped showing affection? In the beginning it was all cuddles and kisses. You were texting him all the time telling him how much you missed him. When was the last time you did that? For that matter when was the last time you actually missed him? If you find it hard to show affection to your partner you need to take a step back and accept that he is not the one for you.
If you find yourself in any of the above situations, there is a chance you can try and fix the relationship, but if left as it is your relationship will end very soon. If you want to work on it, try talking to your partner, if you don’t you need to make the decision to walk away now before one or both of you get hurt. If is best to walk away from something when you know it is coming to an end instead of trying to grasp at strings and hold it together.
