Have you chosen the right romantic partner? That is a hard question to answer. Every couple has its own unique situation, but below are some signs that your partner may not be the right one for you—as such, it would be beneficial for you to part ways.

Before you continue reading, step back from your relationship for a brief moment and view it from a third person’s perspective. In this post, we shall talk from the perspective of a woman, but he signs apply to everyone.

“A great relationship doesn’t happen because of the love you had in the beginning, but how well you continue building love until the end.” –Unknown 

 Your Core Values Are Different

Certain core values are non-negotiable, such as the desire to get married, have children and change your location. If the differences are significant, they could be a cause for concern regardless of how well both of you are getting together at the moment.

Your core values will be relegated to the background if the two of you are willing to discuss them and come to a conclusion on the way forward. Although you could make changes to the core values, such changes should not result from pressure or suggestions from your partner. Rather, they should come naturally out of personal growth.

 You Partner Takes You For Granted

You are doing everything your partner likes, including watching the movies together, having the dinner your partner brought in without consulting you first, and dressing up the children as your partner likes them to be dressed. However, you notice that your partner never acknowledges any of your actions. He assumes that you are submissive and takes your behavior for granted. This is a sign that he has taken charge of a submissive woman and believes this is exactly the way things should be. You may develop the feeling it would make no difference if replaced you with a sex doll because his behavior wouldn’t change.

 You Partner Does Not Respect You 

Lack of respect can be visible in various forms. It could be in the form of taking you for granted, verbal or emotional abuse and displaying aggressive behavior. The habits may be subtle and make it difficult for you to notice, but sometimes, the behavior can be aggressive and include verbal abuse by clearly disguising the words. Disrespect is a way of showing you that you are not valued.

 He Ignores Your Emotional And Sexual Needs 

Your partner does not care about your emotional and sexual needs and is prepared to have things his way regardless of your feelings. He is willing to continuously take and never give back, does not holding you close during difficult times, and does not make love to you.  If he ignores every need of yours and the only things that matter are his needs, you should look for another one.

 Your Partner Is A Caretaker

This is a difficult part, and it takes some time to notice, but it will eventually strike you in a big way. You care about him, want to understand how he is feeling and even make an attempt to understand his plans, but he does not reciprocate. He never questions about your welfare and assumes overall charge of the household without giving any thoughts to your needs.

“A relationship is lovely if you’re happy, comfortable in it and you really like the person. I can think of nothing better. But there’s nothing worse than having a relationship in which you feel no interest.” — Susannah York 

If you are dealing with any of the situations mentioned above, it is time to rethink your relationships because these are clear indications your partner may not be the right one for you.
