How to tell the person you are in a relationship with is not the one
24 August 2016, 15:09
Nairobi - I am not saying your relationship has been
meaningless but don’t force it.
Most couples force it because long time spent
together = marriage.
Does not work like that. A lot of marriages would never have
happened and people would have avoided misery if only they had learnt to look
deeper into the relationship.
can actually picture your life without them
It is even easier for couples living
together just think of how you would feel if you woke up the next morning and
they were not there. What about every day for the next month, does it bother
you? If it does not, then maybe, you should not be with them.
are living with them and you are already tired
I have always maintained that the true test
of a relationship is when you two live together (not advisable if your man is
not planning to settle down but you are). You don’t know your partner until you
breathe the same air with them day in, day out. If it is not working now. Just
know marriage is not a cure. What that means is you should consider that maybe
you two are not meant for marriage together.
had a list but you threw it out
Happens to women when the demands to settle
down come knocking. Some just pick anything and everything. Some of those
things that were on that list might have been what you need in order for you to
be happy and make it work. Throwing it out all together might be a recipe for
misery and later disaster.
There is nothing wrong with liking someone
that looks a certain way or of a certain height, everyone has preferences- even
ugly people have preferences. Nothing wrong with liking security and stability
because you throw it out only to end up cheating on your partner with someone
that has that and ruining someone and your kids as well. It is all a train.
Stick to what you know you cannot do without.
