6 signs to call it quits on a relationship.

We all embark in a relationship with hopes of it being the one but things sometimes don’t go as planned. Through time we come to realise that possibly we made the wrong decision and it’s time to move on. It’s a tough decision to make but sometimes a necessary one. If you are not getting along with your partner, or you’re just not feeling that connection anymore, it’s time to move on. Following are 6 signs to call it quits on a relationship:

  1. Your needs are not being met

If you aren’t being satisfied emotionally, sexually or intellectually, it’s probably time to move on. Ending a relationship is hard, but it’s sometimes the only correct thing to do. If you aren’t connecting at any level, it’s a clear sign you need to move on.

  1. Your partner’s behaviour is difficult or dangerous

For your health and safety, if your partner has a major drinking, drug or gambling problem, you should get out of the relationship, full stop. People who behave like this are unpredictable and dangerous at times. Too volatile to be reliable and staying with them will cause you to suffer. Get out before you put yourself in any danger.

  1. There is no sexual attraction

No one should spend the rest of their lives with someone they are no longer attracted to. If you do not openly discuss this with your partner it will lead to frustration and resentment. Breakup hurts but so does staying in an unsatisfied relationship.

  1. You no longer have fun together

Life is too short not to have fun. You should be able to have fun together, if not there is a problem, as you’ll find the distance between the two will increase all the time. Maybe the two of you just haven’t been spending enough time together. However, if you’re consistently not enjoying yourself when you’re out together on a fun night out, it’s probably time to be honest and bring things to an end.

  1. Your long goals don’t match anymore.

This is one of the most important reasons why you should get out of the relationship. Your priorities have changes. For example, if your partner decides they want kids when you agreed you didn’t want any, there’s going to come a time when one or both will become resentful, or angry or both. This is the hardest breakup as everything else in the relationship is fine, however, your long term goals don’t match, you have to consider moving on.

  1. Your religious beliefs are the only thing keeping you together

This is a difficult situation. You might feel pressure from family, friends and your religious community and leader to stay, to persevere. However, it’s not a good idea to stay with someone solely because of your shared religious beliefs. If you are not getting along with your partner in other ways, there’s no connection anymore, it’s time to move on.

You might choose to stay on and that is your decision. It might be that you both succeeded in opening communication channels and sorted your relationship issues even if it is one thing at a time.

Relationships that turn toxic make life difficult for both parties and soon there will be no joy. It is best then to move on and live life with some enjoyment. Look at these 5 steps to over a breakup.
