4 bad relationship signs we choose to ignore
07 October 2015, 15:21
At times we choose to ignore vital signs that the relationship is not working.
They never get back to you
It is like you have to force them into a conversation. The
response is intended to cut it short and not to engage you. You can be a very
engaging and intelligent person but someone who is not interested can make you
feel like a fool because you run out of things to say. These are the kind of
people you stay away from. Let it go if you thought it could go somewhere. They
are making you run in texts what will happen in the relationship? A triathlon?
They did not want you then but now they had an epiphany and
they like you now
That is because their options ran out. You do not want to be
anyone’s third, fourth or fifth-their last resort. You want a partner that will
pick you in a crowd. Not one that will be constantly looking out for the next
best thing before they dump you.
It was going well but now it’s stale
That is because they have moved on. They do not want to tell
you but hope that you will figure it out on your own. Happens when the other
person already got what they wanted. It does not necessarily have to do with
sex by the way. At times someone is just with you to pass time and they do not
really care if you stick to the 90-day rule, you can have a 365 day rule, they
will be around and when they decide that they are done; they are just done. The
texts become less, the calls non-existent and they just spend less and less
time around you.
The former is still in the picture
The ex, the baby daddy or the baby mother; people have a
problem dating someone who has ties to the aforementioned people for a reason.
Not all of them are bad though. You can date them but it is their behavior that
will tell you it is not meant to be. When they spend/ can spend the night at
your ‘new’ beau’s place, when they get first priority even if it has nothing to
do with the child and a whole list of reasons that allows them to pop up when
they should not. Let it go; having a relationship with their partner only works
when they both respect each other’s boundaries. If they do not have any
boundaries, that is because they will still get back together or are even still
having sex. You do not want that.
