3 Ways To Find Out Relationship
Here you go again. It started with the silent treatment that the two of you decided to give each other. The weird part is that there was no specific reason for it. It seems like you both came up with the idea at the same time. And now it’s in full swing. The two of you even seem to enjoy it a little bit; hoping desperately that the other person feels the full impact of your quiet disgust.
After that comes the forced conversation. Something that concerns the two of you needs to be discussed but the most either of you is willing to give are short, terse sentences with little to no follow-up. You can feel yourself gritting through your teeth as you give your answers. Every response you or your dating partner gives is making you that much angrier. You are not exactly sure why but it’s real.
Now comes the explosion from both of you. Who left the hall light on, why are we going out to that restaurant, do you have to play the music so loud? Whatever it takes the two of you are off and running on a doozy of an argument. They appear to last longer and get more intense. Kiss and makeup? Forget that noise.
Sometimes when a dating relationship heads south it’s really just a matter of giving each other space to recharge your batteries and come back to each other with a fresh perspective. At other times? It’s a clear indicator that the relationship is headed for a breakup.
There’s really nothing in this life that is set in stone and relationships are the least of them. One day it is lovey-dovey with vows of endless love; the next day it’s war. Still, you are not sure if you are headed for a breakup or even want one but something is happening and you have to ask yourself some questions.
- Passing Through: Many relationships whether dating or married go through a phase where it seems like each person cannot stand to be in the other’s company. It can last a few hours, days, or even longer but the couple does manage to pull out of it and come back together stronger than before. Are you and your significant other in that phase? If yes how long has it been? A month or more without any let-up is not a good sign.
- Indifference: Whereas before so many things your dating partner said or did piqued your interest. They either made you laugh, excited, or curious but whatever your reaction they had your attention. Now the most you can muster is apathy. Is it happening all the time or just every now and then?
- Communication: Has it gotten to the point where you don’t want to respond? Maybe you do want to communicate but you and your dating partner are on different wavelengths. As far as you can recall that has never happened before; at least not for extended periods of time.
Does the sound of their voice sound like fingernails scraped across the blackboard? With all the things currently going on in the world, it may be outside forces that are causing much of the tension in your dating relationship. You may want to examine if that possibility exists.
