Sometimes, relationships just don't work out. It happens to the best of us. According to Self, these are a few reasons why your relationships have ended in the past:

1. You Started off Hot and Fast

You Started off Hot and Fast

You don't want to move too fast, especially at first. When you do that, you could end up thinking your feelings are stronger than they actually are. Plus, the faster you start a relationship, the faster it tends to end.

2. You Mistook Your “OK” Relationship for a Dream Come True

You Mistook Your “OK” Relationship for a Dream Come True

You have to be realistic about your relationship. You can't pretend that your decent boyfriend is a knight in shining armor. You can't let yourself be blinded by your feelings for him.

3. You Didn’t Know the Real Person You Were Dating

You Didn’t Know the Real Person You Were Dating

Sometimes, you never really know the man you're with. If you find out that he's completely different than the version of him in your head, then it's natural for the relationship to end.

4. You Didn’t Realize Your Partner Had Baggage

Everyone has baggage. You should talk about yours from the start. Otherwise, you're going to feel like you've been keeping secrets from one another, and that never ends well.

5. You Lost the Romance

You can't let yourselves get lazy. Even after ten years of dating, you need to continue to put in effort. If you don't, then that romance will completely disappear.

6. You Found out They’re a Filthy Liar

Unfortunately, some men lie through their teeth. You might find out that everything he's ever said to you was a lie. Then it's obvious a breakup is in your future.

7. You Discovered Your Emotions Are Completely Incompatible

You might just be two completely different people. There's nothing wrong with that. Some people click, and others don't.

Do these reasons have anything to do with why your last relationship ended?

Keeping the romance or flame or whatever else you call it is VERY important to keep alive! Way sooner than 10 years. In as little as months into it, if you're both not trying and interested, it starts to fail. It sucks...
