7 Signs It's Time to Move on from a Relationship ...


It's very easy to miss the signs it's time to move on from a relationship. I'm a firm believer in trying to work things out, but sometimes this isn't possible. Perhaps we stay for the sex, because it's β€œfamiliar” or perhaps we just don't want to be alone. Even so, it's not fair to either person to be in a relationship you don't feel right in. Hopefully you won't need them, but here are some of the signs it's time to move on

1. One of You Doesn't Want It to Work

A good friend of mine is going through a divorce. They were going to therapy to try to work things out, but it became obvious to him that it wasn't going to work because she didn't seem to want it to. As far as she was concerned, it was over and their only connection would be their kids. This kind of indifference toward your relationship is one of the biggest signs it's time to move on. If you go to couples therapy, you need to go into it with the assumption that it's going to help; otherwise, you're just wasting your time.

You Find Yourself Looking Elsewhere


I have a friend who is only staying with his wife because of his kids.. it's hard to watch someone be so miserable but not help themselves.
@Ali M, I love it! That really is awesome and true, although in some cases the absence can make a difference for the better!
@Cee Vee, to quote my friend-been there, done that, T-shirt, bumper sticker.

there comes a time where you sit and think: I'm having more fun with my friends than I have with him. that's when you leave ! don't butter it up, most likely you both knew but didn't wanna say goodbye
Not all of them apply but still I lately find myself questioning whether I am still in love with him I want to believe it's just a phase but I'm not sure if I feel the same , it's really hard though to decide to move on...

I always remember this phrase too: "if your presence can't add value to my life then your absence will make no difference"! Somewhat harsh but true.
