3 reasons to dump him

14 January 2016, 19:31 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - For the married people, I am sorry but you cannot take a break but vacations only; and you still have to carry them with you or they will sulk.

Relationships on the other hand, it can actually save you, the relationship or save you from making an eternally regretful decision.

When the both of you are in that stagnant place

It does not even have to be the both of you but one of you can just feel it. You no longer are that worried about your partner. You do not care what they are up to. You are living in that mundane routine of same things, same place, same time; you leave for work, say hi in the evening, go to sleep, wait for the weekend when the week is over, try to have a drink but you end up talking about work and repeat. When you get to that place don’t be sacred to ask for a break or to take a break when you are no longer even bothered to be excited to see someone.

That break is what you need to help you see if you want to move on or you miss some things about them, no matter how small. If you breathe easier and do not even want to make a call to have a conversation, then you two were long overdue. If on the other hand you want to check on them and just see if they are fine then that means you do still care and might still be willing to try.

When the romance is gone

It can be a case of lack of spice, monotony or the horrid one, you no longer find them attractive no matter how sexy they dress or try. Lack of physical contact eventually leads to lack of emotional contact. But let me explain it this way; if you can still have a stimulating conversation with your partner and are happy to hear from them or look for it; then the romance can still be re-ignited. If it has gotten to a point where they are just a turn off even when they open their mouth then you might have a problem. Space will help you figure out if you want to be with other people or are willing to work on it with your partner when you get back.

When you two are having a very busy lifestyle

People are known to be critical of those couples that decide one goes to a hotel and one stays at home but that idea might have some merit. People get so busy that they can easily look past each other without even noticing that they are doing it. The excuse; too tired, too much work, a lot on my mind; so why not? You spend some time in the hotel because you can’t take notice at home, in a hotel it won’t be much of a difference, right? Just that for some they will start taking a notice of what they take for granted; companionable silence,  buzz of activity in the background  and that us when they see what they could miss it. This works well for married couples. On the other hand, there can be a downside where someone realizes they are happier and do not want to go back. In this case, you know the results.

Space has a definite effect and someone usually gets hurt especially when they did not want it at all in the first place. But it can save you from being too hasty in a decision like settling with the wrong person. Or it can improve your relationship by showing you what you have.
