Is your relationship on the skids?
Since most people have more than one serious relationship in their lifetime, it’s safe to say that you’ve been in a relationship that has failed. The trick is not lingering in a failing relationship wasting precious time and being miserable. Recognizing the signs that your relationship has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel is crucial for either taking actions to correct what can be fixed or to let go of what’s not salvageable.
1. You’re always bickering
It seems like all you do is look for reasons to fight. Big or small, it doesn’t matter because it always ends in a massive conflict. The fighting is taking over your lives. It’s like every time you try to communicate; you end up fighting with each other.
2. You don’t talk about the future
If you suddenly go from discussing your future together to avoiding the discussion at all, then it’s showing a serious lack of interest to carry the relationship any further. Try to fix this by reopening the conversation again. If it’s just fatigue or work-related stress, talking about a happier future with your partner, even if it’s silly like living in eco-friendly housing, it can help lighten the mood and reopen the discussion.
3. You avoid each other
If it seems like you don’t have time for one another, that you’re too busy with something, the worst part can be that you don’t appear to mind not seeing each other often. If you’re actively looking for reasons not to see each other, or you spend more time with friends and family, anything to avoid being together, this is a definite danger sign.
4. No more cuddles
If affection has died down or it’s non-existent, the pecks on the cheek and the cuddling are gone, then this is a huge problem. The greater the distance between you physically, the more it increases emotionally as well.
5. All about you
