9 Signs That a Relationship Is Not Worth Saving Anymore

A bad relationship will not only make your life harder, but constant fights can also lead to severe depression. Being the only one putting effort into a relationship can be exhausting and tiring, especially when you don’t know where the 2 of you are heading. If it feels as if your relationship is going in circles, it is best to calmly think about whether it is worth saving at all.

1. Your partner avoids spending time with you.

If your partner never seems to find enough time for you, but is always ready to spend time with others, this is a sign that they don’t find you interesting anymore. When you really want to be with someone, you find time for them, there’s no other way around it.

2. You feel like a totally different person than you were before.

When you truly love someone, you accept them as they are. Wanting to change the person you are dating or their habits is not a healthy sign. You shouldn’t have to give up on your hobbies or interests, or feel guilty about doing something your partner simply disapproves of for no reason. If you were happier and more free before, and feel too caged-in in your relationship, you should probably leave it.

3. You are no longer each other’s go-to person.

Communication is the key to lasting relationships and if you find it difficult to open up to your partner, share your secrets with them, and rather talk to someone other than your partner, something might be wrong.

4. Most of your conversations turn into fights.

And, whenever you do talk, if you end up arguing over something, that’s not a great sign either. Expressing your individual thoughts is healthy, but finding yourself fighting over little things really often is not.

5. Your heart no longer flutters at the thought of your partner.

Of course, as your relationship progresses and you get over the “honeymoon phase,” the initial excitement fades. But, that doesn’t mean that all the sparks will also fade with time. If thinking about your partner doesn’t bring a smile to your face anymore or make you happy in any way, it is probably best to let them go.

6. Your partner is all “receiving” and not “giving.”
