5 Signs They’re Not The One

August 06, 2018

One of the most difficult things when it comes to relationships, is recognising when it isn’t working – and walking away from it.

Unfortunately, in reality, love isn’t always enough to ensure a relationship stands the test of time.

You need to be able to be able to identify warning signs that your relationship may not be meant to last.

Here are the top five signs that he or she isn’t the one:

1. You Don’t Trust Them

If you don’t trust your partner, there is no relationship. If you are wary of believing everything they say, or find yourself constantly questioning their motives and whereabouts – something is amiss. If you aren’t able to pinpoint the reason for your trust issues, trust your gut instinct and get out.

2. No Depth of Connection

For a relationship to stand the test of time, you need to have depth of connection. You need to know your partner intimately. In other words, you need to know who they are, what they want out of life, what their hopes, dreams, goals and fears are.

3. They Bring Out the Worst in You

A relationship is supposed to bring out the best in you, but if the it’s exaggerating your worst qualities, you might want to rethink it. Sometimes you might not even recognise the person that your relationship has turned you into. Relationships won’t always be sunshine and roses, but if it’s dragging you down, it might be time to reconsider the commitment.

4. No Common Values

If you want to successfully share your life with someone, your core values should be aligned. Everyone’s values are different, whether it be religion, work ethic, lifestyle, and so on. However if your values aren’t compatible, you will either face major hurdles, or make serious compromises.

5. Lack of Respect

This is one of the most overlooked ingredients when it comes to making a relationship work, however it is one of the most essential. If you want a long-lasting, healthy relationship there must be mutual respect between partners.
