One thing everyone has in common is the need for a healthy relationship. It seems like finding that perfect person to be with is built into the very core of people. This need can be misleading, though. Some people rush into a relationship without realizing that the person they chose might be completely wrong for them. Not everyone understands how to know when to end a relationship.
Sex is an important part of a healthy relationship, especially in the beginning. Two people with strong feelings for each other should be able to become intimate with each other and ignite passion with themselves. Most people tend to forget that sex doesn’t mean love. If sex is the only reason the relationship is staying afloat, it might be time to take stock and have a serious talk.
In the beginning stages of a relationship, most couples are pretty clingy and enjoy spending every waking minute together. Over time, that feeling fades a little but both people still enjoy each other’s company. It’s normal to want some space after the first few weeks, but when a partner becomes dismissive there’s a problem. It only takes a few seconds to respond to a text. Waiting hours to get a response isn’t normal and could indicate problems.
Toxic relationships can be sneaky. At first, everything is peachy but after a while, things start to take a negative turn. If a partner is controlling, such as deciding who is alright to hang out with, it’s a red flag. Controlling partners tend to be pretty manipulative, so it’s important to watch for signs. These kinds of situations only get worse, so dumping that control freak quick is the best move.
Respect is vital to a healthy relationship. If anger brings about nasty and disrespectful behavior, it’s a sign that there are serious issues just below the surface. It usually starts as rude comments during arguments but it can escalate quickly. When it comes to an angry partner, it’s best to cut ties quickly before things get out of control. Rude and hurtful comments can turn into yelling, which turns into fits of rage.
