Roadblocks in any relationship are normal. It helps both the parties understand their love for each other is stronger regardless of problems. But, sometimes, this may not be the case. Here are some ways to find out if your relationship is going nowhere.
Every successful relationship is built on unconditional love for the partner. Every little thing you do in and for the relationship is for the other person. However, if there comes a time, when you no longer care for the other and whatever he does is of no consequence to you or vice versa, it perhaps indicates a dead end in the relationship.
It is important to accommodate, to give into the needs and desires of your partner but it must be a two way bridge. When you definitely feel you are being used and taken advantage of, it is a definite red flag that your relationship is not going to take the two of you anywhere for the betterment.
Have you started feeling, it is difficult to stand the sight of your partner? If you want to escape every time your partner is around, there is little hope your relationship is going to be fruitful.
There is no point living a lie. You are neither helping yourself nor the other. Hence, when either partner fantasizes or strongly desires to live with someone else, this existing relationship has little hope unless both of you make conscious efforts to stay committed and happy.
It is common to hit red flags in a relationship. But the two of you can lead a peaceful and happy life together only when there is a need and want to make good a red flag. When no efforts are taken to make things better between the two of you, you have probably reached the end of that relationship.
Wanting some private time with friends is normal but wanting to do that every time he has time off is unnatural. It should send off some alarm bells. Your relationship will never be given the time it should get.
Life has a share of responsibilities it throws on you. But those should not serve as excuses to not make time for each other. Regardless of how hectic your routine is, when making time for each other does not figure in your to-do list, you should know something is definitely wrong.
Married couples tend to take each other for granted after a few years spent together. While some of it is inevitable, the charm of the relationship is only when you do and want to do things for each other. But when taking each other for granted becomes a routine, there is no more unconditional and selfless love left in the relationship.
If you aren’t married as yet and your boyfriend is reluctant to take you to family reunions or meeting his friends, then there is some problem brewing in your relationship. If he is truly happy with you and both of you see a beautiful future together, both families must be involved in your bonding.
While it is not appropriate to consider every undesirable trait a red flag, it is also not right to ignore concrete red flags for long. When a relationship has no future together and cannot be changed regardless of efforts, a wise decision must be taken to see what can be done.
