This is pretty obvious to most people, but a lot of women seem to stay in relationships even if their significant other cheats on them. This is definitely one of the most important reasons to break up with your significant other. Once someone cheats on you, there is a pretty good chance that they will do it again, especially if you stay with them. If you stay with a cheater, they think that you’re okay with being cheated on.


Your Friends Hate Them

This isn’t the most important reason to break up with someone, but it still matters. Your friends love you and they want you to have the best. If your friends hate your significant other, there is probably a reason for it.


You’ve Changed for Them

If you’ve changed for the person that you are dating and you don’t like the person you are today, it is time to move on. If the person you are dating is trying to change you, it means that they don’t want to date you for who you really are.



If you are getting abused you need to leave immediately. This is the most important reason to leave your significant other. It does not matter whether it is physical or emotional abuse. I understand that it can be hard to leave an abusive relationship because deep down you really love that person. But abuse is wrong and you deserve much better than that.


Long Term

If you and your significant other are on different levels when it comes to your future together, this might be a reason to split. If you want a long term relationship and they just want something temporary and fun, then you probably shouldn’t be together.

Famous Quotes

If you would take, you must first give, this is the beginning of intelligence.


No Longer in Love

If you no longer are in love with your significant other than it is time for you to break up. Even if they are still in love with you, you don’t want to be in a relationship that you don’t truly care about. Let them know how you feel and look for relationship that you can have in which both of you are deeply in love with each other.



A little jealousy is a good thing. A lot of it is a reason to end a relationship. If your significant other is constantly breathing down your neck and is always accusing you of cheating, or they get mad every time someone looks at you, then this isn’t the relationship for you. You should be in a relationship where your significant other trusts you.

Everyone knows that relationships are hard. Sometimes it’s even harder trying to get out of them. But these reasons that I’ve listed are all good reasons to break up with your significant other. What are a few reasons that you think a person should have when they are determining if they want to end a relationship?

Have some respect for yourself and move the f*** on if your partner cheated and abuses you. Those are just unacceptable!!!!!
