6. You have no interest in physical intimacy anymore.
While sεχ isn’t everything in a relationship, it’s a very important part of keeping the fire alive. It seems like in every relationship I’ve been in, I’ve known it was over when I stop wanting to be physical with that person.
I stop wanting to hold hands. I stop wanting to be kissed. Sεχ started to feel more like a chore.
As soon as I stopped wanting the physical connection I valued so much at the beginning, I knew things would never be the same.
7. You aren’t in love anymore.
You start to feel like you’re only in the relationship because you don’t want to be alone, or because you don’t want to face the difficulties of a breakup.
Maybe the two of you live together, and you aren’t breaking up with your partner because you don’t want to be faced with all the bills alone. Maybe the idea of not having someone to vent to or sleep next to terrifies you.
Either way, if you’re only staying in the relationship for a reason like that, it’s definitely past the point of saving. If you’re not in love anymore, what’s the point? You should never stay in a relationship when your feelings have drastically changed like this.
Even if it’s the hardest thing you’ll ever do, if you don’t love this person anymore and can’t see that changing, it’s only fair that you be honest with yourself and end things. You’ll be happier in the end.
