30 Red Signs Of Relationships That Have Long Ended Before They Called It


30 Red Signs Of Relationships That Have Long Ended Before They Called It

“It’s not hate – it’s the indifference.”

Finding the right person to have a lifetime relationship with is more than just finding them. It’s something that you have to work on, and even when you’ve put in your everything, things can still fall apart. Those who’ve watched theirs end shared the signs they’ve personally experienced to relationships that are already long over.

For some people, the end of a relationship was a release. But for others, they start having doubts if they’ll ever have a chance at feeling excited about love again. Persisting on one that doesn’t send your heart racing and butterflies in your stomach isn’t a logical solution either. It’s, at least, one less burden in your life.

“Several, but off the top of my head… The sight of them does nothing for you. Getting a text or phone call from them elicits an eye roll. You try to avoid them. You cannot hold a conversation with them because everything they say is irritating. You really could not care less about their day or anything they have to say to you. You find yourself fantasizing about a life without them… and it makes you smile. You know, just to name a few.”PurpleVein99
