This article will talk about signs your relationship is over.
Truth is, relationships can be tough.
They are not always filled with romance and flowers and dates that sweep you off your feet.
Difficult times come along in any good relationship.
A good number of couples can still manage to hold on together if they both bring trust, respect, and kindness to the relationship.
But other times, no matter how hard you may want to hold on to your once-perfect partner, sometimes you just need to let go.
Here are six signs you should move on from a relationship.

#1. No more trust in each other
Trust is an important part of any successful relationship.
You and your partner should build a relationship on trust along with other important qualities which are kindness and respect.
If you don’t trust your partner, how can you ever move forward as a couple?
When you lack trust in them, you may find yourself questioning if your partner is really where they say they are when you’re not around.
You wonder where they go or what they’re doing.
You get angry and suspicious.
It leads to more and more arguments.
#2. You don’t like each other anymore
You once had a romance that you believed would last years, now you can barely stand the way they pop their gum, and even something as trivial as the way they chew gum turns into a fight.
Odds are, these arguments over little irritations and annoying habits may have a deeper meaning.
You may fight over how loud your partner pops their gum while you’re both cuddled up and watching a movie.
When a dramatic movie like Titanic is on you need silence, but really, you may have had all this pent-up anger towards your partner, over other things and chose to let that anger out over your annoyance with the gum.
The truth is, you may have some deeper problems to sort out in your relationship, or you simply don’t like each other right anymore.
Ask yourself this;
What is it that I don’t like about my partner?
Do I like them at all anymore?
If you and your partner have been acting distant, rude, disrespectful, or annoying to each other, including being chronically irritated, then you may simply not like each other anymore.
And one of the signs your relationship is over might be time to move on.
#3. They have no respect for you.
Respect is foundational for a good successful relationship and if you don’t respect your partner, or if your partner doesn’t respect you, it’s time to get out of the relationship.
Common behaviors that show disrespect are lying, cheating, and name-calling and we don’t mean using pet names nicknames.
You and your partner should not be insulting each other and using name-calling to belittle each other.
Ask them how they feel.
Have a conversation.
Find out what’s going on in their head and if they do in fact have respect for you, they better show they do.
All you are asking is for a little respect.
#4. They are selfish and make everything about themselves
It’s totally normal to gloat every once in a while on your success and expect praise from your supportive and loving partner.
But if your partner never has time for you in return, boy, that is a problem.
If your partner is selfish, they only have time to talk about themselves all the time.
What about you?
Do you think Jack only talked about himself on the Titanic while Rose sat there listening?
They talked about both of each other’s lives.
Do you think Jack just would have let Rose drown and keep the floating door all to himself?
He let Rose have the door to float on.
It couldn’t carry both their weight, okay?
The thing is, if they make things all about themselves all the time, leaving little room for you, then it’s time to move on from the relationship.
#5. You have drifted apart and no longer want the same things
If you no longer have a strong connection with each other and on top of that, no longer want the same things in life, it may be time to move on.
People change and grow.
And you both may have become someone different from when you first met each other.
That is okay and it’s perfectly normal.
But it’s time to assess whether or not you both hold the same values and goals.
Are you both still compatible?
Can you see each other together in five years, or 10 years?
#6. You are the one who puts in all the effort
Perhaps you weren’t feeling the strong connection you once had with your partner.
Does that mean you should give up?
In your eyes, never.
So, you put your all into the relationship.
You are going to salvage this bond you had with your partner and build up that connection again, but you are the only one trying and you are trying too hard because they are not helping.
If you find that your partner simply doesn’t care about you enough to make things work, then it’s time to move on.
You shouldn’t be the only one putting the effort into the relationship.
As much as you don’t want to, as much as you promised you wouldn’t let go, ask yourself;
What did Rose do?
