We often get stuck when we’re in a relationship, but the sooner you see the signs a relationship is over, the sooner you can end it for real.
I’ve been there. I’m going to guess you’ve been there and may very well be right now. You’re in a relationship and there is nothing exactly wrong, but it also isn’t exactly right. And the signs a relationship is over are cropping up.
But if neither one of you says anything, how do you know if the relationship is over.
Breakups are hard
No matter your relationship length or depth, breakups suck. There is no arguing that. That’s why it is often difficult to see the signs a relationship is over.
We all live in this area of denial. You are in a relationship, but it isn’t what it used to be. Maybe you make excuses about work or stress, but deep down you know the relationship is over. All you have to do is admit it to yourself, then your partner.
I do not blame you for sitting in that space where actually taking the relationship from over to the ultimate end is paused, but from experience, I can tell you it is worth it to rip the Bandaid off now rather than later.
The longer you wait to end a relationship, especially once you’ve seen the signs that a relationship is over, the worse it will be. So if you notice some or even all of these things in your relationship take them as signs and just end it.
Signs a relationship is over
There are excuses to be made for almost all of these signs. You can convince yourself you don’t see your partner due to work. You can convince yourself you are too tired for sex. And you might say, “we don’t fight,” as a sign your relationship isn’t that bad.
But like Camila Cabello sang, “No reason to stay, is a good reason to go.”
#1 You’re more like roommates than lovers. This can happen in a lot of longterm relationships, especially if you live together. You may discuss bills, dinner, and what to watch on Netflix, but it doesn’t go beyond that.
A romantic relationship should add more to your life than this.
