8 Types of Toxic Relationships to Avoid ...


When it comes to relationships, there are tons of different kinds, including types of toxic relationships that you really need to avoid. Avoiding these types of toxic relationships can be hard, especially if you don't know exactly what you should be looking out for. I've compiled the top 8 different toxic relationships that should be on your radar, so watch out!

1. Negative Thinking Relationship

This is one of the most common types of toxic relationships that can actually be really hard to avoid. We've all been negative at one point in our lives, but to build a relationship out of negativity? It's awful! This relationship is a constant cycle of complaining, of canceling plans and of just plain being negative and never, ever looking on the bright side. This is a relationship that can drain your soul and all of your emotions.

Sadly, I had #s 2,3,4,6 & 8 all with one guy. I'm just glad I got out alive.
So sad that I didn't see these signs in my own toxic relationship. I gave 3 years of precious time to a relationship that did nothing but try to break me down. So very blessed to be in a better place ...
I've been in a controlling/jealous relationship with a very insecure guy!! I just thought he liked me a lot, but he made the relationship move at such a fast pace and we pretty much hit every relation...
I didn't even realize I was in a toxic relationship until afterwards 😔

I was in the Controlling/Jealous for a year and 3 months I couldn't even spend time with my own family... about every time we were together he made me cry. Ugh glad I'm out of that!
