No matter how perfect two people seem for each other, relationships take a lot of work to build and maintain. Even when you've done all you can to ensure that things will work out, there's still the possibility that things could eventually fall apart.
What sucks about this process is that it rarely ever happens swiftly. Breaking up usually drags and there are a number of signs that begin to appear as the split happens.
You are unsure if you are in a relationship.
If you have to question if you are in a relationship or not based on how you are being treated or the energy that your partner gives off, chances are that things are coming to an end.
Future plans are limited.
When people are in relationships for the long haul they don't mind planning things far in advance because they are planning to stick around. If your partner no longer wants a long-term relationship, you'll notice a dropoff in future plans.
Your partner acts single.
Actions always speak louder than words. If your partner is doing things that single people do, he is already single in his mind. It's just a matter of time before he breaks the news to you and officially ends the relationship. You may notice that your partner no longer communicates or doesn't feel you are owed any explanation for the things he does.
You're no longer a priority, ever.
People always find ways to make time for the things that are important to them. It' impossible for you to take priority over all aspects of your partners, but on occasion, you will be made the priority If your partner values the relationship you share.
You believe you will better off without your partner.
If your relationship has gotten so bad that you believe your life will head in a more positive direction without that particular person in it, it is absolutely time to move forward.
