How to tell if your doubts are relationship breakers or totally normal
So you’ve been dating your significant other for a while and you’re starting to get more serious. You’re in love with each other, you’ve met each other’s families, and you may have moved in together. But as you spend more time together, you start to notice their little quirks and habits that you’re not totally enamored of. You start to second guess yourself and now you’re starting to doubt whether or not they’re The One. Are you suddenly seeing red flags? And is time to break up?
You’re out having a good time with your friends when you start talking to a stranger. You have a nice conversation, genuinely interested in what they have to say before parting ways. Is it wrong to feel guilty about being attracted to this person?
According to relationship experts, there’s nothing wrong with a harmless attraction to someone you’ve just met. It’s normal. However, if you’ve exchanged numbers and start texting each other while hiding this from your significant other, then you’ve veered into some shady territory. It may be time to reassess your relationship.
Boredom In Bed
Your sex life should be a healthy and active one, but it shouldn’t be the only factor in deciding if your relationship should continue or end. Don’t be alarmed if your partner isn’t always bringing their “A” game to the bedroom. It may be up to you to teach them how to satisfy you, as long as you do it in a tactful and respectful manner.
Of course, if you’re totally incompatible in the bedrooom, you may be incompatible outside of it, too. Sometimes it’s difficult to recognize when one problem is actually one of many problems.
Crossing The Line
It’s perfectly normal to question your relationship, especially when it’s turning from casual to serious. However, there are things that are totally unacceptable, such as physical or emotional abuse.
If your partner continually lies to you, insults you, or just makes you feel bad about yourself then it’s time to move on. Don’t waste your time with someone who doesn’t respect you or the relationship.
