A while ago, I gave you guys some signs on how to tell if your boyfriend wants to break up with you. These clues weren’t there to make you paranoid – they were there to give you a hint that your relationship may need some help.
Well, guys aren’t the only ones who can do that breaking up stuff – girls can too. But even if we’re feeling tired of the relationship, it can sometimes be hard to figure it out on our own. When we really care about someone, we want to hold onto them, even if deep down we know it isn’t right. Sometimes we overlook the signs that we want the relationship to be over because we’re not ready to be alone. So how do you know if you two should break up? For starters, read these eight signs:
You're Really BoredRelationships aren't going to be exciting every single day, especially long-term ones, but if you find yourself feeling bored and restless more often than not, that's not a great sign. Try spicing things up and doing some different stuff. If none of that brings the spark back, it may be out for good. Source: ShutterStock
You Don't Really Call Him AnymoreYou used to text him updates all day and call him every night before bed, but now... well, you just don't really care. Or maybe you just forget to get in touch. If you don't have a desire to talk to your boyfriend when you're not with him, something's going on. Even if you're just "forgetting," there's a reason behind that. You don't forget to call someone every day. Source: ShutterStock
You're Super Jealous Of Your Single FriendsMourning the loss of your single life freedom is completely normal when you're in a long-term relationship, but eventually you should settle in and feel happier to be with someone you love. If you're constantly feeling jealous of your single friends and wishing you could be out there with them, that might indicate that you actually want to be single also. Source: ShutterStock
Everything He Does Annoys YouWhen you first started dating your boyfriend, you probably thought the weird little things about him were adorable. Now? Not so much. When your boyfriend can't do anything without making you want to pull your hair out in frustration, that's not good. If everything he does and says is doing more than just bugging you, but actually making you really angry, things might be over. Source: ShutterStock
You've Thought About It More Than OnceIt's totally normal to consider breaking up once in a while, especially after a big fight. But if you're thinking about it all the time, constantly wondering what it would be like and fantasizing about the things you would do, you're doing that for a reason. Maybe you really do want to break up with this guy. If you didn't, it wouldn't always be on your mind. Source: ShutterStock
You Don't Find Him As Attractive As You Used ToMaybe your sex drive has dwindled down to basically nothing. Maybe the things you once thought were cute about him, like his crooked teeth, are suddenly, well... gross. Physical attraction is not the main part of a relationship, but I do think that you still need it in order to keep the passion going. If you no longer think your dude is cute, then why are you still dating him? Source: ShutterStock
You're Happier When He's Not AroundWhen you're with your friends, you're happy: smiling, laughing, being a total goofball. But whenever your boyfriend comes around, your whole personality changes. Suddenly, you're irritable, bored and kind of bummed out. If that sounds like you, take notice. You may need to start paying close attention to your moods, but if you notice a pattern similar to that, it's a definite warning sign. Source: ShutterStock
You Have A Crush On Someone ElseI'm not just talking about a teensy, harmless crush here. No, I'm talking about liking someone else so much that you think about him more than you think about your boyfriend and you may even be considering cheating. If you have feelings for someone else, it's best to end the relationship you're in. You owe that to yourself and your boyfriend. Source: ShutterStock
