Nobody wants to break up, but sometimes your relationship comes to a standstill and you have to let it go. How do you tell that your relationship is going nowhere and is about to come to an end.
Physically connected but not emotionally
When you are idle and in boredom and you find yourself fantasizing with someone else your relationship is in some serious trouble. If you cannot see yourself with this other person many years down the line, your relationship is in danger. If you lack the ability to see yourself together in years to come, it means that you are not connected emotionally.
The only common thing you have is sex
If you have no other common ground with your partner apart from sex, you are in the wrong relationship. If you hate everything that your partner does, his hobbies, his social life, and everything else apart from sex, you have no future together. A relationship is not all about sex in the future, how will you survive together? Whatever happens between the sheets is important but not strong enough to sustain a healthy relationship. Also if you have a lot in common and no sex life, you are missing on one important ingredient in your relationship. You are not in a relationship so as to get another good friend, you need a lover.
Being a popular couple
If you and your partner have come together a long way and are not sure whether you should let go, watch out. When couples go through some trying times in their lives they tend to develop a strong bond which is hard to break. If the reason why you are still together, is because of your reputation and anything apart from your love watch out too.
If your relationship has no future, it means that it is short term. Are you comfortable when you are talking about your future? If you are not, there is a serious misconception somewhere. If your partner always avoids, that topic, you probably have no future together. This means that you are ambivalent about your feelings for your partner or simply don’t want that to occur.
No time for the relationship
If both of you are busy with your work, friends or family and have no time for your relationship, you are in serious trouble. Your relationship should be the first priority and you should always find time for it. If you feel like it does not matter a lot to you, probably this is your time to let go. On the other hand if your partner is always too busy for your relationship you better watch out.
If either one of the above is happening to you, it is wise to reevaluate your relationship and act accordingly. Everyone wants a happy relationship, but don’t be a victim of trying to force a relationship that is going nowhere.
