8 signs you are dating the wrong person

It is perfectly normal to feel doubtful about your relationship, especially a new one. But if your relationship starts to feel more like a chore, then you may have to watch out, because he or she will not be your ‘happily ever after’.

As a matter of fact, every relationship has its problems. Even the happiest couples will hit a few bumps in the road. But there are some issues that are more like giant summits than small stumbling blocks.

It hurts when you feel like things have soured in your relationship and it can be difficult to know whether to work it out or call it a day.  In fact, there can be several warning signals along the way, telling you that it won’t work out. Here are 8 signs that you are dating the wrong person:

8. You’re always fighting.
All couples fight. It’s normal to argue occasionally, and it’s actually a sign of a healthy relationship if you do it the right way. Fighting becomes a problem when it becomes overly critical, disrespectful, and more than you can emotionally handle.

7. You don’t feel good about yourself

The time you spend with your partner should make you feel better about yourself, not worse. If you notice that you feel more doubtful or insecure with them, chances are they are actually toxic for your mental health. If your partner exacerbates your self-doubts and undermines your confidence, it’s time to stand up for yourself and walk out the door and find someone better.

6. There’s no intimacy.
It’s perfectly normal for the passion to slow down in any relationship. The honeymoon doesn’t last forever, and outside stress like an exhausting job and small children all have an expected impact on your sex life.

But there’s a difference between sexual ups and downs, and have no desire at all for each other. If there’s no longer any chemistry, or the thought of touching your partner repulses you, that’s a major sign that something is wrong.

5. Your friends and family haven’t met them

If your partner hasn’t met your family although you are going steady, it may be a sign that you are dating the wrong person. Another sign is that they are consistently avoiding hanging out or meeting your friends. This could be because he or she doesn’t think that the relationship is serious enough to get involved with your personal life. Or maybe you are too embarrassed to introduce them to your friends and family. Either way it’s a sign: drop them, because it won’t last much longer.

4. There’s no trust.
As you move through all the highs and lows of life, you need to be able to rely on your partner. You cannot have a healthy, lasting relationship without trust, so how do you build an unshakable bond, or repair it if it’s been broken?


3. You can’t see a future together

If you tend to avoid having any kind of ‘difficult’ conversation; your relationship is most probably heading nowhere. If you want to take your relationship on a more serious level you will have to talk about difficult or uncomfortable issues, especially when they involve you. Unless you can see a future together, your relationship is going nowhere. Commitment is vital in a healthy, long-lasting relationship.

2. They exhaust you

If spending time with your partner drains you, you might be dating the wrong person. Instead of feeling energized after hanging out with your partner, you feel emotionally drained and tired most of the time. The person you choose to spend your life with should lift you up rather than drag you down. It may be time for you to walk away from him/her.

1. You are unhappy

Your relationship should bring you joy, not pain. You should enjoy spending time with them, instead of dreading it. If you find yourself unhappy most of the time, especially when you are with them -then this may be a sign that this isn’t the best person for you. It time to walk away and find out who or what makes you happy. After all, it is better to be happy alone than be miserable with someone else.

In Conclusion, If you’ve put in the work and things haven’t improved, or your partner is unwilling to change, or even if you’re simply no longer happy — it’s time to put yourself first and move on.
