5 signs your relationship is a lie

13 August 2015, 18:36 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - 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 important’

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.
