Sometimes breakup is a salvation. If you love your partner but he doesn’t love you, it’s hard to end your relationship, but the sooner you do it, the better. If you don’t love him but you know he loves you, you probably don’t want to hurt his feelings, but lying to him is not a way out.

If you are not happy with your partner or if he is not happy with you, a breakup may be the only smart option. There’s no sense in staying in a relationship that has no future. You just waste your time and your nerves. Here are 6 ways to know if your relationship is over.

In the beginning of your relationship, your partner used to text you and call you several times a day. He sent you romantic messages and flowers. Now, he is too busy to call you or to text you. When you call him, he doesn’t have any second to say how much he misses you. He never texts you back as well. It’s a sure sign he is not interested in you anymore.

If you don’t want to spend time with your partner, you stop loving his jokes and his kisses, let your partner know that you want to end your relationship. He has a right to know it. If you think of meeting another guy while dating your partner, what are you waiting for? Don’t waste your partner’s time! Respect and honesty are those things that you should never forget about, no matter what.

Remember when you first started your relationship, you could talk all night long without any awkward silences. Now, you don’t have anything to talk about. You spend a lot of time fighting over trifles and you rarely talk about your love and your future family and kids. If you don’t know how to start a conversation with your partner or he doesn’t want to talk to you because he is always busy, it’s a red flag.

There are times when your partner may be super busy and you shouldn’t disturb him. However, if he is ALWAYS busy, it’s just a ready-made excuse. It’s easier to say “I’m busy” than to spend the whole evening and night with a person you don’t love anymore. Find out if your man is really busy, it’s not difficult to check.

If your partner forgets your birthday, it’s not a happy experience. Sure, you don’t expect expensive gifts and a large bouquet of flowers. You expect your partner to show you how much he loves you and cares about you. If he forgets all special occasions, including your birthday, he doesn’t care about you anymore.

There’s no perfect relationship, but constant fighting is not healthy. It’s okay to fight once in a while, but when you and your partner fight every hour, it’s time to say goodbye to your relationship or look for smart ways to stop constant fighting. Find out the reason of your fights: money, female friends or job. If you are finding yourself constantly fighting with your partner for no reason, your relationship may be over.

Do you feel like your relationship is over? What are you going to do?
