Do you feel like your relationship is nearing the end? Have you considered breaking up with your partner but you're just not sure? There are a few ways to tell if it's time to call it quits. Check out five signs that you need to break up with your partner:
1. There Is Emotional or Physical Abuse
Any kind of abuse should never be taken lightly. This is the biggest sign that you need to break up with your partner. If you are suffering from emotional or physical abuse, it's time to leave. No one should stay in an abusive relationship. Likewise, if you have become abusive to your partner, the two of you need to separate and you need to seek treatment for your abusive tendencies.
2. One Of You Has Cheated
Very few couples can recover from infidelity. Bouncing back depends on the circumstances and the couple themselves. For the majority of couples, it's time to break up once one of you has cheated. Cheating means that either you or your partner has given up on the relationship and it's not likely it can be saved.
3. You're Attracted to Other People
Everyone admires people other than your partner. Noticing attractive strangers is just human nature. However, if you find yourself genuinely attracted to someone else in a way that you want to be in a relationship with them rather than your partner, you need to break up.
4. You Can't See A Future Together
You and your partner may have once envisioned a future together, but if you can't do that anymore, it's time to break up. If you imagine what your future will look like and your partner is not in it, it's time to let them go now so that you can both pursue what you want in life.
5. You Have A Gut Feeling
There is a lot to be said for intuition. Sometimes you just know when something isn't right. If you have a gut feeling that you need to break up with your partner, it's probably because the relationship has run its course.
