A dead-end relationship is a time-sucker, among other things.

It wastes your time, it wastes your partner's time, and it can end up hurting both of you.2

The problem is that it's often difficult to tell that you're actually in a dead-end relationship versus a relationship that's actually going somewhere.

It's easy to mistake a going-nowhere relationship for a rut or a rough patch.

It's important to make the distinction as quickly as possible, however.

You don't want to lose yourself in a relationship that isn't going to last or grow or inspire you any longer.

1. There is No Memory of Anything about You

If you've completely forgotten who you used to be, as an individual, and if you've lost all sense of who you are as a couple, you might be in a relationship that's ultimately going nowhere.

2. What Future?

3. What Friends?

When your friends seem to have fallen away over the course of your relationship, it's a red flag for a number of reasons.

4. Date Night Drags on and on Forever

If spending time together feels more like a chore than an adventure or a romantic activity, you might have a problem.

5. Affection in Public? as if

Now, not everyone enjoys PDA, so keep this in mind only if you notice several other signs stacking up, as well.

6. You Fight Way More …

Way more, as in all the time, as in you can't remember how long it's been since you went any length of time without arguing.

7. … than You Laugh or …

You know for a fact that you cry, frown, and yell more than you laugh or smile.
