Breakups can be devastating, especially if you did not expect it. Many people have tried making relationships work but still end up breaking up with the other person for reasons that could range from infidelities to incompatibilities.
If you are in a relationship right now, it is normal to be wary of breakups. It could be very painful particularly if you feel that you have something special with the other person. Unfortunately, breakups do happen.
If you want to avoid a messy breakup that involves too many tears and angry words, you should be aware of some of its signs.
If your partner seems more pre-occupied and reserved lately, you can consider this as a sign that your relationship is heading for a breakup. Aside from these, your partner may also refuse to talk or avoid any form of affection. Of course, this can only be true if your partner is not like this normally. Some people are not as affectionate or as vocal as you and you can only consider these changes as signs if they are not normal for your partner.
During the early stages of relationships, couples spend hours talking on the phone. When they see each other, they act like they haven’t and talk more. If your partner suddenly becomes “unreachable” and days pass without talking, your relationship is definitely headed for a breakup.
Another sure sign that there is trouble in paradise is when you start fighting about the smallest, most insignificant things. Although bickering is considered to be normal among couples, you should be able to discern if your partner is picking a fight with you constantly. By showing that you are no longer happy, your partner is hoping it could lead to a breakup.
Complaints and Criticism
Some people choose to be overly critical about their partners when looking for a way to breakup. In addition, your partner may even start to complain a lot about how you look, speak and think. This is definitely a sign that your partner wants out. Never believe that by changing the way you look or speak will make your partner want you once more. Also, you should not think that because you look or act a certain way, you are to blame for the breakup.
Although it is quite hard to breakup, you should always be realistic about your situation. Do not stay in the relationship for the wrong reasons.
