If you've been dating someone for some time enough, sooner or later you're going to run into conflict. Maybe they don't like your friends. Perhaps they've an annoying dog that drives you crazy. Maybe you argue petty, insignificant things. Sometimes after you have been together for a while, the cute / charming quirks that you used to like will end up what drives you crazy. And if you're relationship is on the rocks, how do you know if the relationship is worth saving, or maybe it's time to move on? Well fasten your seatbelts for this adrenaline fueled thrill-ride with the inner workings of the human psyche once we give you four serious ways to tell if it's time to constitute or break up.
1- How much do you trust them?
Trust is the basis of all human relationships, especially romantic ones. Will they get defensive when you ask them about their day? Do you have a feeling they're hiding or otherwise telling you something? Have you ever had a legitimate reason to suspect that there's something you just can't put your finger on? Now try not to become paranoid or overly suspicious, but when over time things just don't seem quite right somehow, it should be because it isn't. I am a big believer in giving people the benefit of the doubt, but you have to trust your instincts. The end result is if you can't completely have confidence in them, then it's time to hand them their walking papers.
2- Are you constantly fighting and breaking up, or is mtss is a one-time thing?
Every couple has fights or arguments from time to time. Physiologists even inform us that a little arguing every so often can be healthy for any relationship- just so nobody goes too much or says stuff that can't be taken back. However, whether it seems like you're constantly each and every other's throats or can't seem to agree about anything, it might be time to step back and evaluate things. It's true that opposites attract, but there should be some healthy balance to that. A lot of girls are strangely attracted to bad-boys for their tough, macho, "I don't provide a crap" attitude. A realistic look at a situation like that is it's not likely to last in the long term. So if you're fighting constantly it could be that you're just really not that compatible from the beginning, and that brings us to our next point.
3- How compatible are you currently really?
We all have our own "type" that we are typically attracted to. From time to time we might even find ourselves strangely drawn to someone who we all know really isn't that good for us. It can be the idea of tasting the forbidding fruit or it may be wanting what we know we shouldn't have. Whatever drives us to be drawn to others, you have to give yourself a reality check. Once the rubber meets the road, could you really see yourself having a long-term, meaningful relationship with this person? Could you imagine the both of you growing old together? If the answers no, then you're just burning daylight.
4- Are they really worth it?
Sometimes when we've been in a relationship with someone for some time it can be hard to determine the forest with the trees. That is what makes it even more important to step back and get a brand new perspective on thing. Ask yourself this. Could they be really worth it? Can you do better? Are you currently putting in all the effort in this relationship? They are really tough questions to answer someone complain about you care about, but you owe it to yourself to be as honest as possible. With 6 billion people on earth, you shouldn't get stuck in the mind-trap of thinking that this person is the only option. Because guess what? They're not.
