Red Flag Radar: 4 Major Signs Your Relationship Is In Trouble

Are you worried that your relationship is on the rocks? Sometimes it can be hard to tell if you're just going through a rough patch or if you're headed for a breakup. Check out these four major signs your relationship is in trouble:

1. You're Bored All the Time

While it's completely normal to feel bored at different points in your relationship, it's a bad sign if you're bored all of the time. Do you find that you never have any fun with your partner? Do you only enjoy the company of friends, family or co-workers? If so, this is a red flag for your relationship. You shouldn't feel bored all the time when you're with your partner. You should still find enjoyment in each other's company and be able to have fun together. Constant boredom could be a sign that the relationship has run its course.

2. You Rarely (Or Never) Have Sex Anymore

The longer a relationship lasts, the more likely you are to experience ruts in your sex life. This totally expected. However, if you cannot come out of that rut, you may have a problem. If you've gone for a very long period of time without having sex, it could be that you and your partner are not feeling the same passion you once felt for one another…which means the relationship could be headed for its end. Healthy couples are able to re-ignite that spark and get their sex life back on track. If you're having trouble doing that, things aren't looking good.

3. You Don't Celebrate Anniversaries Or Milestones Together

Now, don't get us wrong here. You don't have to celebrate every single anniversary in some big, extravagant way for the rest of your lives. With that said, if you find that neither one of you cares to acknowledge your anniversary (or just plain forgets it every year) it could mean that you no longer feel that love and attachment you once felt for your partner. You no longer value the meaning behind your anniversary and you no longer feel the desire to celebrate the milestones you've reached together. This could be the beginning of the end.

4. You Feel Resentment Towards Your Partner

One of the biggest signs that your relationship is in trouble is feeling resentment towards your partner. Your partner is the person in your life that you should always feel love and compassion for, not anger and resentment. Do you find yourself blaming them for everything? You may feel that being with your partner has ruined your life or ruined your chance of having the life you once wanted. This all falls under the feeling of resentment and it is very bad for your relationship long term. The resentment will only build as time goes on and eventually lead to the relationship crashing and burning.

Warning Signs: 6 Relationship Red Flags You Should Never Ignore

When it comes to relationships, there are certain warning signs that things aren't meant to be. When you start dating someone, you want to keep your eyes open for any red flags that the relationship is going to be a bad one. This gives you the chance to get out before you waste too much time with the wrong person. Check out the following six relationship red flags you should never ignore:

1. You Have Different Values

If you have totally different values and beliefs, your relationship is probably doomed from the start. Your differing values will make it almost impossible to build a lasting relationship. Since your beliefs don't line up, you'll constantly be arguing and it will make your relationship a living hell.

2. The Sex Sucks

Honestly, sex should be at its peak when you first start dating someone. If the sex is awful from the start, just know that it's only going to get worse as time goes on. Do you really want to stay with someone and have a bad sex life? Sex is an important part of a relationship, so this is a red flag you don't want to overlook.

3. Your Partner Blames You For Everything

When something goes wrong, does your partner automatically blame it on you? Are they unable to take accountability for their actions. Someone who doesn't hold themselves responsible for their wrongdoings is not someone you want to be with for any long period of time. Run while you still can!

4. You Keep Secrets From One Another

If you or your partners are keeping secrets, consider the relationship over already. Relationships are built on trust. If you can trust one another enough to share your secrets, you won't be in it for the long haul.

5. You Don't Feel Comfortable With Each Other

Do you find that you can't let your guard down and be yourself in front of your partner? Comfort is of utmost importance in a relationship. If you can't be comfortable with your partner, then you're going to have a miserable relationship.

6. You Make Excuses For Them

If your partner is constantly messing up and you find yourself making excuses for their shortcomings, it's already time to get out of the relationship. You don't want to spend the rest of your life trying to justify someone's bad behavior because it will only leave you sad and alone.
