Accepting the end of a relationship isn’t easy, especially when you’ve invested a lot of time, energy and money into it. But rejecting the obvious signs that a relationship is finally over only prolongs the pain. Facing reality is always the best policy.
Seven signs your relationship is over:
- Your lover is M.I.A. M.I.A. stands for missing in action. He or she ALWAYS works late, hangs out with friends or does other activities that keep you two from communicating with each other.
- “Future talks” have ended. Your mate NEVER talks about future plans with you. As a matter of fact, when anything dealing with the following year comes up, he or she changes the subject. It’s as if this person has joined a rehab group and can only deal with you one day at a time.
- He or she has gotten another place. Suddenly, your ‘sweetheart’ isn’t happy with your home and wants to live in an another area. He or she has gotten a place in the city or country that DOESN’T include YOU. Unfortunately, distance only makes the heart founder in rare cases.
- Your mate is infatuated with someone else. Affairs aren’t always frivolous sexual or emotional interactions. At times, cheaters commit acts of betrayal because they believe they’ve found their soul mates. Think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!
- The person doesn’t care about you. You’re well-being financially and physically is no longer a concern. You can tell because he or she stops paying bills and does obvious things that effect you emotionally such as verbal abuse.
- The person tells you it’s over. His or her comments aren’t a part of an ugly fight or a means to get leverage over a situation. The comments are notification – your relationship is over.
- Your sex life is dead. Nothing you do can resuscitate it. Sending the kids away to a babysitter, sexy lingerie, soothing music, alcohol – none of these things help revive your lover. This is a departure from the past – a time when you used to have sex like rabbits.
The above seven signs that a relationship is over are easy to see after a break-up or split. The trick is to catch them before hand and use them to your advantage. Get a few more tidbits on this subject at Thoughtcatalog.com .
