Love should not be one-sided. Love should be an exchange of loyalty, sincerity and charity. If you seem to be the only one giving these qualities to your relationship, take some time to consider who you are with.
Pay attention and see if you see these five things in your relationship:
1. You don’t share goals
Even though both of you have independent lives and personalities, there should be some goals you share as a couple. If the someone in your life isn’t sharing his achievements, applauding yours, looking to participate in any sort of goal you and him can reach together be warned; he’s not that interested.
2. You are your own support system
If he really loves you, he will be there with you as you make decisions about your future. He should be someone who is your partner through joy and pain, seeking to find ways to help and support you. Love is all about give and take. Be sure that the person you are with is giving, not just taking.
3. Things are too independent
There needs to be a balance in all things, especially in a relationship. While you need to spend time doing your own thing, if your partner is constantly choosing other activities over you, please reconsider. Television, sports, and video games are fine hobbies to have, but they shouldn’t be where he spends all of his time.
