1. You neglect other relationships because of him
As a couple, it’s natural for you to spend a lot of time together as a couple. However, if you spend all your time together, something’s not right. If you keep canceling girls’ nights or some other activities with friends or coworkers, it’s not a healthy relationship. If your partner wants the best for you, he should help you maintain other relationships as well.
2. You are constantly exhausted
When you are always arguing or worrying about how your partner will react to something, then there’s a problem. This results in you not meeting deadlines at work or not finding the time to do things that you love. Such a relationship will only take from you until you have nothing to give to yourself.
3. He doesn’t support your goals
Whenever you talk to him about your career or aspirations, he seems uninterested or makes you feel like you are stupid for trying. What you want is a guy who can respect your decisions and goals and will do his best to help you make it a reality.
4. You get angry at the most trivial things
When you are with a partner who brings out the worst in you, everything he does just pushed you over the edge. Seeing him talking to other women turns you jealous and insecure. Though you can’t explain why you are acting like this, you just know it has something to do with him.
5. He encourages your bad habits
If your guy has the same vices as you, he might not be interested in seeing you change because that might mean he would have to change too. You need a guy who wants to see you improve and helps you do so, not one who fuels your bad habits.
6. You don’t feel like yourself around him
If you have a hard time showing him who you really are, that’s a clear sign that he doesn’t bring out your best side. A guy who brings out the best in you will make you feel more like yourself and not like you need to suppress your true personality.
7. You are always trying to get the upper hand
Love is not a competition. If you find yourself trying to make your partner feel smaller than you or unloved, that’s not a healthy sign. If you are not comfortable with compromising once in a while because you think it will give him some kind of power over you, then you shouldn’t be with him.
