Relationship Break: 11 Clear Signs You Need To Give Your Relationship A Break

Break ups happen all the time for a number of obvious reasons, say, betrayal, selfishness, mismatched priorities… But there are times, when things may not be outright wrong, but still there’s something that is just not right! And if you are indeed feeling that way, you need to spend some time apart to figure out if you really want to be couple! Today, we want to share some common red flags which suggest that you probably need a relationship break.

Obviously I am no expert, and no one could possibly know the teeny-weeny details of your relationship better than you, and therefore only you can decide if you do need a relationship break or not. But hey! I am just bringing some relationship break signs to the fore, so that it is easier for you to decide.

2. Spending time watching your favorite series, or with your friends or even doing you 9-5 loyally, sounds way more fun…

Than spending it with your partner! Of course, it is not intentional! But you are indeed making a choice and picking other things over your S.O.!

3. You feel like you are stuck in a rut!

Things are not moving forward, and you have no clue why it is that way! So if the two of you have started making excuses regarding things like talking about what the future holds or whether you should move in together, you guys are probably doing it for a reason! Why don’t you take a relationship break and figure that out?!

4. You keep breaking up!

But get back together twice as faster! That is plain dysfunctional, guys!

5. The action under the sheets is something of the past now.

If you think you are not physically attracted to your mate, imagine a future like that. You get what I mean, don’t you?!

6. On the contrary, sex is all you’ve got!

If your relationship has boiled down to physical needs alone, it’s high time you pick the hint and call for a relationship break! While your relationship may last for years this way, it will not be such a convenient and happy thing as you grow older and have scarcer things to talk to each other about!

7. You have started wondering if there are other people out there, and whether they would be better for you!

Being curious is something, but if this is something you keep thinking about every now and then, something is not right! So if you are fancying a man who might be more loyal or more responsible or way more compatible than the person you are dating right now, there are holes in your relationship!

8. You squabble about almost everything, all the time!

Fighting is healthy for a relationship, yes! But that is true only to an extent, beyond which it just isn’t normal or cute! If you think you guys are picking fights all the time and there is nothing positive or rewarding to look forward to, I think you should consider a break!

9. You are keeping the relationship going because…

You have gotten used to each other! Ouch!

10. Your partner feels really suspicious about your every move!

Is it because you are acting shady or are they not prepared to handle an adult relationship? In both cases, there are things the two of you have to work on!

11. You are being taken for granted!

A good relationship has got to be reciprocal, where you get equivalent love and respect from your partner. If that is missing, and your mate’s putting his or her needs above yours, things aren’t the way they are supposed to be!

Listen, I know it is tough for you to give up on something on which you have put in a lot of emotion and time. But this relationship break might be a way of fixing the smaller problem so that you don’t need to deal with the bigger problem of a break up!

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
