1. You aren’t a priority.
Hanging out with her gal pals or hitting the bar with the boys shouldn’t ever be more important than you. But if you want to spend an evening with them or want to go on a date, “I have plans,” isn’t the right answer to the proposal. Take care to make sure they aren’t putting others before you.
2. They feel no shame for breaking your trust.
Trust is the most important thing in a relationship, any kind of relationship, be it romantic or platonic. If your partner seems to have no shame for breaking your trust, dump them.
Right now. Get up from your computer, walk over to them, and tell them to get out. Your world will be better without them.
3. You feel like you have to be someone else.
If you have a partner who acts like the person you are isn’t good enough, constantly tries to change you, and you feel pressured to be someone you’re not, this relationship will not work. The only time you’ll find happiness in life is by being yourself, fully.
4. You can’t depend on them.
You should be able to stand up on your own two feet. If you can’t, then I don’t know how far you’re going to get in this life. What I can tell you is that you should always be able to depend on your partner.
Don’t rely on them for every little thing, but they should be there to back you up when they need it most. If they aren’t, move on.
5. Your partner is needy.
It’s okay to need each other, but it shouldn’t be a dependency. You also shouldn’t be dependent upon them. It’s a drain on your energy and will eventually spiral your relationship into resentment if it hasn’t already. Neediness will hold you back in life.
