5 Telltale Signs Your Relationship Is Over

It can be difficult to know when a relationship needs to end, particularly if you've been with your partner for a long time. While there are things you can do to improve a relationship that has simply become stagnant, sometimes it's best for everyone to simply cut your losses and end things. Wondering if your relationship is over? Here are a few indicators that it may be time to move on.
Some arguments can't be avoided. When two people enter into a relationship, they bring two distinct perspectives, experiences and beliefs along with them. Occasional clashes may be inevitable, but if you and your significant other constantly nitpick at each other about things big and small, it may be a sign that you're just not compatible.
Are you constantly canceling or changing your plans based on your partner's whims? Do you feel like you are the only one investing in the relationship? Flexibility is an admirable and necessary trait, but a healthy relationship requires commitment and a willingness to adapt from both people. A relationship in which one partner is doing all of the heavy lifting is destined to fail.
Picture what you hope your life will look like in 5, 15 or 50 years. Can you imagine the relationship you have with your current partner still being the most important one, or do expect that you'll have a different, healthier relationship? Maybe you and your partner have drastically different life goals, and no matter how great your relationship is, he's never going to dedicate his life to relief work in Zimbabwe and she's never going to agree to a life immersed in furry fandom. If you and your partner are clearly going in different directions, it's time to move on.
The ability to change and evolve is a healthy trait for both individuals and relationships, and there is nothing wrong with working alongside your partner toward self-improvement goals. However, if you are unable to accept your significant other for who they are right now, it may be time to cut your losses and move on. Pushing for your partner to change his or her eating, drinking or fitness habits, career goals or personal shortcomings creates a discouraging and unhealthy environment for both of you. Alternately, if you feel that your partner is dissatisfied with who you are, it's probably time to end the relationship and make yourself available for someone who will accept you.
If he or she cancels a date and you feel relief, that's a sure indication that your relationship has run its course. All relationships go through different seasons and some of those seasons require more work than others, but if you have reached a point where you feel stress and dread at the idea of spending time with your significant other, the relationship needs to end.
Moving on from a relationship is never easy, but even bad relationships offer important lessons and life experiences.
