Signs Your Relationship Is Over

That gnawing feeling in the pit of your stomach is not because you forgot to eat breakfast. Pretending that everything is perfect will get you an ulcer, not a better relationship.

Chances are, you already know that you’ve got to pull the plug on Mr Almost-The-One, but you’re mistrusting yourself, ignoring the obvious.

Hopefully seeing these brutal truths in print will be the little shove out of the airplane that you need to safely parachute to reality:

You’re moving out to ˜save the relationship’

Shacking up is not for everyone, but how many happy, healthy couples do you know who choose to live separately, permanently? No matter who is packing their boxes for a studio apartment, you’re in the slow lane to singledom. Maybe no one wants to hurt anyone’s feelings, maybe no one want to be the bad guy, but this is just ripping that breakup bandaid off at a snail’s pace. Save yourself some agony and admit that it didn’t work out before someone accidently finds someone else’s used condoms in the wastebasket.

You’re setting up an online data profile ˜just for fun’

Granted, when those E-Harmony free match weekend specials come around it is tempting to want to see who the ˜experts’ would pair you up with. There is a difference though between dipping a curious toe in the water and doing a deep-sea dive. Clearly if you’re still seeking, then you have not found. Instead of stringing your little fishy along, be kind and just cut the line already. He has a computer, he’ll be just fine.

You imagine your life without him¦ and you don’t feel anything

It was those butterflies in your stomach that got you into this in the first place, so why stop listening now? If the thought of leaving him leaves you without even the vaguest nausea, your heart beats normally and you don’t feel like the bottom just dropped out of your stomach, you know what you have to do.

    to the married guy who posted the post above mine (or below? whichever one is right next to mine and by a married guy disagreeing with this post): thank you! Your post gives me so much hope. My ex recently broke my heart citing irreconcileable differences which I totally thought were reconcileable. This makes me feel like maybe I’m not the one who is impossible to stay with — perhaps I just have to find someone who is into me enough to work things out as opposed to ignoring the issues for months and then citing irreconcileable differences…

    you think that being a couple is supposed to happy every day, like on TV…i.e. HAPPY DAYS…The flintstones, the Jetsons, the Waltons.
    I told my wife when we stated to get serious as we dated, Together we will never ever be happy EVERYDAY, There will be days, You’ll tick me off… and….. There will be days when I will tick you off…. Is what we have together strong enough to keep us together? Is the Love we have worth see thru tough times? Some couples freak me out,, they break up so fast rather then to fix the problem, end the realationship…hence end the problem. Well experience has proven to me, you’ll be in so many TIC TAC realationships that only last like 3 months. I know.,., I did that… I now have a very firm understanding which is why now I have a very very solid marriage of 7 years, and I treat my wife like it was the first time I laid eyes on her. Our love for each other gets stronger everyday, sure, we have downs but we take time to remember we had more awesome times then bad times. I think maybe you’ve come to a changing time in your life now, which brings you to this topic. I so disagree with everything in your article.
