3 reasons why people breakup

22 April 2016, 09:28 Anne Mwirikia

The average person will go through at least three relationships before settling down, meaning there will be at least two very emotional or dramatic breakups in the course of their dating life.

So are these breakups avoidable or a fact of life?

Well here are 3 reasons people breakup:

He/she morphed into an awful stranger

Everyone puts their best foot forward at the start of a relationship so it's only natural that as one eases into the relationship and begins to show their true colors, conflicts may arise. These true colors may not even be so awful but the fact that they are so different from their original characters makes it totally unbearable.

Many people have become disillusioned and left a relationship because he/she wasn't as sweet, romantic, conscientious and generous as he/she was in the beginning of the relationship. They feel cheated but one thing you should understand is that human beings put all into the chase and it's only natural to rest on one's oars once you reach some levels.

When he/she wants more

More attention, more money, have more expectations than their partner is able to meet etc.

Unending demands is one of the top reasons people break up.

Once your partner becomes discontent, it usually signals end of the relationship and to be honest, wanting more is not always a bad thing!

When he/she become boring

All relationships have three phases - the honeymoon phase, the old married couple phase and the forever phase. Most people don't make it to the third phase. Even though the old, married couple phase has familiarity and trust, it's main pitfall is the fact that the relationship gets quite boring simply because you have both began to take each other for granted since you know each other well.

The spark isn't gone, it's just buried beneath a healthy dose of the demands of reality. Most people don't take the time to dig up the spark but instead start chasing after a whole new spark only to end up in a rut again!
