In all relationships, there comes a point when the honeymoon stage is replaced by a decidedly less pleasant time. Arguments come up more readily, less free time is spent dedicated to each other, and other people suddenly seem a whole lot more interesting than they did when you and your partner were snuggled up on the sofa every night.
The question here is, whether things have broken down so much that they can’t be fixed. Our New Jersey matchmakers have heard it many times before and have compiled the following list of signs that indicate termination territory. However, it shouldn’t just be one of them that gives you the justification to walk away from your boyfriend, but rather, a combination of them.
- Constant Bickering
Constant bickering and arguing is a sign that the relationship is almost at the breaking point, unless that was part of the relationship at the beginning. Whether or not it is a truly relevant reason to walk away depends upon the frequency of arguments. Needless to say, violence during these arguments means you should walk away as soon as possible. Violence is never okay in a relationship.
- Less Sex
Sex isn’t really the be-all end-all of all relationships, but it is a hugely important part. If sex completely disappears from the relationship, then shared levels of intimacy suffer a lot and the bereft partner is unlikely to want to continue in the relationship. It could be the case that the partner who is refusing sex has already come to that decision.
- Avoiding Home Not-So-Sweet Home
Home is an environment that everyone should want to go back to after a long day at the office – it is your security and nurtures your strength. However, if the thought of going home is the last thing on your mind, purely because you don’t want to deal with your partner, then it is a strong sign that things aren’t going well for you anymore. If you do everything you can to avoid going home after a long day at work, you know you have some relationship issues to deal with.
- Different Future Goals
Do your aspirations mismatch? Are one of you upwardly mobile and the other would rather sit at home all weekend? This is definitely another tick in the signs you should break up.
- Different Taste
He likes to party on the weekend, she likes to stay home. He likes vacations on tropical islands, she likes sky resorts. He’ll go for a comedy movie, where she likes horror flicks. Sometimes, such differences can be quite charming, but eventually they start to grate your nerves. This is a sign that it’s time to weigh your options.
- Family Matters
In a relationship where one half wants children but the other doesn’t, this can be a huge deal breaker. Sometimes, it’s worth hanging on for a change of heart, but just as often, it’s time to call it a day and move on.
- Closed Ears
If you’ve stopped listening to your partner, or they have closed their ears to you, then serious relationship issues can creep into your particular situation. Time to walk away.
So how many of these signs do you notice in your relationship? Is your relationship doomed or can it be saved? Only you can make that call.
