At this day and age, we’ve all experienced break ups. Some worse than others. And which woman hasn’t had their hearts played with, battered, or scarred? Even if you’re the dumper and not the dumpee, breaking up is never easy.
Also, there’s never a good way to break up with someone.
So here’s what we think are the telltale “breaking up soon” signs. Just so that you can prepare for what’s coming. Though we hope you’d never need to.
No More Spending Time Together
Sitting quietly next to each other while doing work on weekends can be considered spending quality time if that’s all the time you have for your other half. But if you don’t do even that (as in no interaction or time spent together whatsoever, developing totally separate social circles, avoiding each other like diseases), then honey, we have a problem.
Let’s Pretend To Be Walls
The both of you used to care for each other a lot. When he’s happy, you’re happy. When he’s sad, you feel for him. And vice versa. Suddenly, the display of emotions draws a blank. Like a wall. Like no communication whatsoever. Then maybe what passion you once felt about within your relationship is now gone. If you don’t even bother arguing or getting angry, you’re well on your way out.
Always Wrong, Never Right
Whatever your partner does start to get to you (in a bad way) or whatever you do is just plain annoying or stupid to your partner, and is never approved of. You used to laugh at each other’s jokes but now you’re both rolling your eyes. And there are times where he puts you down or nitpicks you for it. Not funny anymore? Loss of respect? Maybe the time to go is nearing.
Picking On Unresolved Issues, Empty Promises
It’s common – leaving an issue or two unresolved because the two of you can never come to an agreement or be bothered to even talk about it. When you do attempt to talk about it, your partner simple acknowledges the issue(s) and makes verbal but empty promises to “work on things” or to “make things better”. Then it never happens. If it never happens, neither will this thing called your relationship.
The Other Person aka Infidelity
Your partner, for some reason, has suddenly found the liking to disappear without telling you where he is. When he tells you where he is, you find it shady. When you poke and prod and gently ask, he tells you off for making him “report” to you. Yet, when you’re together, he’s super busy on his phone – and it’s not work-related busy-ness. Unfaithfulness happening? The escape route would appear to be more visible by now.
If any of the above applies to your relationship currently then we’re sorry but some things will have to change. Take note, however, that the scenarios above is probably normal to some relationships – but not most.
