Are you ready for a break-up?

March 8, 2008

Sometimes you may feel suspicions or doubts about a relationship, and not really be sure if it’s time to call it quits or not. Here’s a quick checklist of things to consider in your decision:

1. Infidelity, Addiction, Abuse, Excessive Arguing, Bullying: If any of these apply to you or your relationship, you don’t need to read the rest of this article. These alone are enough reason to break-up with anyone. Do not feel like you “have” to stay in the relationship if any of these things are going on. You deserve better!

2. Your partner doesn’t listen to you or pay attention to you.

3. Your partner will not talk to you about things that are on his or her mind.

4. You find yourself wanting to make new friends or think a lot about how much you enjoyed being single.

5. Your partner has annoying habits that you can not forgive them for or live with for the rest of your life without going nutty.

6. You dread the thought of spending time with them, or think you’d have more fun sitting alone in your room all night.

7. You often feel used by your partner and there is not an equal exchange of give and take.

8. You don’t share common goals or future plans.

9.  You find yourself feeling either overly jealous or insecure about your partner spending time with friends of the opposite sex, or perhaps the complete opposite – you are completely apathetic about it.

10.  You find yourself reading articles like this one online. You already may know it in your heart, but need some kind of affirmation in your decision.

If you find three or more things on this list to be true, it very well could be time to break up. Think about it very clearly and try to weigh the pros and the cons. Plan what it will be like without that person in your life anymore. Think of what you will do with your new found freedom.

If you are still doubtful, you can also always consider counseling or trying to talk with your partner to see why you feel the way you do. If these things don’t work after a few months, then it may be time to say those good-byes before you waste your life anymore on someone who isn’t right for you.
