5 signs your relationship is a lie

Is your relationship a lie? Here are some easy pointers.
You get nothing from that relationship
Sex is not something. Unless that is what you wanted.
Otherwise, they are the only ones who are winning through it
all. No support, no partner in crime/not in crime. You are not even in a
relationship because they never gave you a title, ‘why don’t we just enjoy it,
why ruin it!’ At this point you start feeling deflated because you start
realizing you are in too deep in something that is giving you nothing.
You never hear from them until that time, ‘it is about something
A person who is using you will only show up when they are in
need or want. They never bother to even know what you are about or you never
just go out to have fun together or just talk. They call you, they ask for a
date but you find out in-between or at the end, ‘there is something I wanted to
ask you!’ That is when you realize it was a show that led up to something that they wanted.
‘Will you buy me this?’
Or get me that? If I do this? Someone who is using you will
never do something for you without asking for something in return. Even if it
is being your plus one at a function. They will ask if you will compensate
them. They never leave a chance that ensures compensation from their cooperation.
There are a set of rules for you to abide by
Mostly in relationships. Especially when they know you would
do anything to be with them and be their whatever-boyfriend or girlfriend. You
would like to think of it as terms. Yes they are terms and they are terms and
conditions for you to abide by so as not to mess up their schedule or routine.
One misstep and hellfire is razed on your head. Other things are made up for
you to do so that you can show atonement. Mostly materialistic or errands.
It is a secret
This is a situationship or someone is cheating. Why do they
want to keep you a secret? A. They are embarrassed to be seen with you B. They
are using you for sex. ‘Just come over to the house.’ This is just plain and
simple, I do not even need to explain it.
Some of the above also applies to casual relationships. You
can be loyal to a friend who is in loyal to your current situation or
circumstances. Take that out and see what happens.
