Itโ€™s horrible being in a relationship that has little chance of going the distance.

Btu usually we donโ€™t know a relationship is doomed to failure into weโ€™re well into it which can make the realization doubly hard.

Essentially, the sooner you realize it, the sooner you can begin making decisions about what to do.

These are the most common types of relationships that have a propensity for failure, not success.

1. When You Care More

When You Care More

One of the types of relationship that wonโ€™t work is when you care much more than your partner does.

One of the cornerstones of a successful relationship is that both partners love and care equally for one another, giving each other the support that they need.

If you are the only person who is loving and caring, then the relationship will become less and less rewarding for you over time.

2. An Idol/Fan Relationship

An Idol/Fan Relationship

If you completely idolize your partner in a sort of distant, grandiose way, you could be in danger of entering in to territory where the effort and attention in the relationship starts to become lop-sided.

You end up giving a lot more than you receive, both emotionally and physically.

3. You Love an External Factor

You Love an External Factor

Take a step back and look at your relationship from a brutally honest point of view.

Are you more in love with their wealth than their personality?

External factors such as income, superficial good looks, even more shallow things like ability to dance or musical prowess, can tempt a person in to thinking that they are more fond of their partner than they really are.2

If you stripped away all of these things, would you still love them the same?

If not, then this is definitely a problem.

4. A Relationship of Convenience

A Relationship of Convenience

Were you the only single girl left in your friendship group?

Did you start a thing with the guy in the next office cubicle simply so you had somebody to bring to parties and introduce to everybody?

This is never going to be a relationship that stands the test of time.2

In reality, a relationship of convenience can often prevent you from opening yourself up to finding a more authentic, for-real kind of love.
