8 Major Signs Your Relationship Is In Trouble

Are you worried that your relationship is headed for a dead end? If you feel like your relationship is on shaky ground, there are always some red flags that can really help you figure things out. Check out eight major signs that your relationship is in trouble:

1. You Never Fight Anymore

We know this may sound contradictory, but not fighting could actually be a bad sign for your relationship.Oftentimes, indifference is worse than anger. If you're not fighting over anything anymore, it means that you no longer care enough to fight.

2. You're Not Having Sex

Sex is a major part of a healthy relationship. Sure, most couples go through dry spells, but if you can't even remember the last time you had sex, consider this a major red flag.

3. You're Annoyed By Things You Once Loved About Your Partner

Did you used to love the way your partner would snort when they laughed, but now you find the mere thought of it nauseating? When your relationship is in trouble, you start to find little quirks that were once endearing to be terribly annoying. It's like you cannot stand even the smallest things about your partner.

4. You Don't Confide In One Another Anymore

Are you sharing secrets with friends and co-workers rather than your partner? Your partner should always be your ultimate confidant, so if you find yourself confiding in others, there's a problem in your relationship.

5. You Don't Think About the Future Anymore

Couples are always looking to the future, especially younger couples. If you're no longer envisioning the future, it could mean that you're no longer desiring a future with your partner.

6. You're Happier When They're Not Around

Are you happier when you're away from your partner? Do you dread coming home from work? This is a huge sign that your relationship is in trouble. If you'd rather be away from your partner than with them, consider things headed towards an end.

7. Your Relationship Feels Like An Obligation

Your relationship should be an enhancement to your life, not an obligation. If you find yourself resenting your partner and looking at them as an obligation rather than a choice, your relationship is definitely on shaky ground.

8. You Don't Include Them In Anything

Do you make dinner plans without inviting them? Are you spending the holidays with family and leaving them out? This is a huge sign that your relationship could soon be over. It's understandable to spend time away from your partner, but if you're not including them in anything you do anymore, it's a red flag.

On the Rocks: 5 Signs Your Relationship Is Ending

How do you know when a relationship is nearing the end? How can you tell that a breakup is in your near future? It's not always easy to spot the signs that your relationship is over, but we're always here to help. Check out five signs your relationship is ending below:

1. Your Partner Is Spending Time More Time With Friends and Family

If you find that your partner is spending more time with their friends and family while they're barely spending time with you, it could mean that your relationship is nearing its end. They are likely bored with you or knowing that they want out of the relationship, so they are transitioning to spending less and less time with you until it's nothing at all.

2. They Don't Tell You About Their Life Anymore

When you're happy and in love, your partner is always the first person you want to tell big news, So when your partner isn't telling you that something big has happened in their life, it's because they don't care to tell you. For instance, if they got a promotion at work and you're the last one to know, your relationship is officially on the rocks.

3. You Don't Do Anything Fun Anymore

Every relationship has inevitable ruts where you stop going out and doing “special” things. However, even during these ruts, most couples are still able to have fun together, whether it's just cooking dinner or watching TV. If you find that you can't seem to have fun with your partner no matter what you're doing, it's probably over.

4. You're Fantasizing About Other People…A Lot

Everyone fantasizes about someone other than their partner at some point. With that said, if you find that you're constantly fantasizing about other people or that there is one particular person you can't stop fantasizing about, it's because you're just not that into your partner anymore and maybe it's time to end the relationship.

5. You Don't Talk About the Future Anymore

In a healthy relationship, couples often make plans for their future together. If you find that you and your partner are no longer discussing your future, or that you are imaging a future without them, it's time to just end the relationship. You no longer see them as staying in your life, so you might as well end it now.

Too Close For Comfort: 4 Huge Signs You’re In A Codependent Relationship

Relationships are meant to be close and intimate, but can a relationship become too close? Codependent relationships refer to relationships in which one or both partners become dependent on the other to an unhealthy extent. This often means that they completely rely on their partner for their happiness in life and are unable to function without the support and approval of the other person. While it is normal to be attached to your partner, it is not normal to be completely and entirely dependent on them. If you're worried that you may be in a codependent relationship, check out these four major warning signs:

1. You Have To Get Their Permission To Do Things

It is totally okay and actually beneficial to take your partner into consideration when making decisions. However, it is not okay if you have to check with your partner before any and every single thing that you do. For instance, if you have to get your partner's permission to have dinner with your best friend, this is not normal. This is a sign of a codependent relationship because it shows that you can no longer make decisions for yourself.

2. You've Stopped Hanging Out With Friends

One of the biggest signs you're in a codependent relationship is if you've stopped hanging out with your friends. It's understandable that you want to spend time with your partner, but if you only want to spend time with your partner, this can become unhealthy. If you notice that you have abandoned your friendships, this is a warning sign.

3. You Feel Lost or Unhappy When They're Not Around

It is okay to miss your partner when they are not around, but at a certain point is it not normal. If you find that you cannot be happy at all when you are alone or you don't know what to do if your partner is not present, you have become codependent. You need to be able to function normally without your partner by your side at all times.

4.You've Abandoned Old Hobbies or Passions

Do you find that you no longer have interest in the hobbies you had before your relationship? Have you abandoned your old interests and find yourself focusing all of your energy on your partner? This is a sign that you are in a codependent relationship because you are revolving your entire existence around your partner and completely neglecting the things you once loved.
