Most relationships have a shelf-life of only a few months… if that!
Sometimes it’s hard to know if you should stick around and see where a relationship takes you, or if you should cut your losses and move on. If you are having a hard time deciding which road to take, below are five signs your relationship has reached its peak, and will probably not advance to the next level.
1. There is little to no physical affection
Ask any married couple, and they’ll tell you a healthy and active love life takes some seriously concentrated effort over the long haul. But what is difficult and challenging after several years of marriage should not be difficult and challenging after several months of dating. If your partner doesn’t at least get your pulse moving a little faster every time you see them, that might be an indication you’re in a relationship that’s going to go the distance.
2. It’s all physical and nothing else
The other end of the spectrum, is when your relationship is nothing but physical. You rarely, if ever, find yourself talking about anything of value, or importance. If every “date” takes place in bed, it might be time to get out of bed and see if you have anything in common outside the sheets. Long term relationships require a solid foundation of similar interests and passions. If the only thing you have in common is how much you both enjoy lovemaking, then it might be time to move on.
3. You or your partner have stopped caring about their appearance
