Eve Woman: Nine signs it's time to let go of a relationship

By Heather Jensen | November 16th 2013

When you are searching for signs it's time to let go of a relationship, it can be hard to face the harsh reality that your relationship is over and that you want out of it. In my last relationship, I constantly was looking for signs it's time to let go of a relationship, but I didn't want to admit it to myself. If you feel like you are stuck, don't worry! I've got the top signs you should be watching out for in the ways of letting a relationship go.

1. No love

Do you remember that feeling of love and all of the butterflies that you experienced in the beginning? Do you feel that anymore? This is one of the signs it's time to let go of a relationship. You should always feel like you are in love with your partner. You never should feel like you could be drawn to someone else or that your connection is not strong at all – and that it is constant. Relationships go through ups and downs, but you shouldn't experience this feeling all of the time.

2. You constantly look at other people

While some couples are constantly pulling their eyes to someone else, they don't often dream of being with someone else or dream of not being with their partner. If you are constantly looking at other people because you aren't attracted to your partner anymore, you've got to think about that!

3. No interest in resolving things

Resolving the hardships in your relationship is pretty important and it is common in every relationship, but if you have absolutely no reason to resolve any problems in your relationship, why are you in it? Relationships are bumpy and hard and you've got to be ready for that. If you aren't and you don't want to think about the hard times, it might be time to end your relationship.

4. You dream of breaking up

Most often, when you are seriously considering breaking up but you haven't done it yet, you dream of breaking up. You often think that it would be easier to not be with your partner and that you'd rather be with someone else or by yourself. These are thoughts that are normal in some instances, but if you are experiencing these all of the time, it's hard!

5. you want to be with someone else

Ah, so you've not only been dreaming of breaking up with your partner but you actually want to be with someone else – that's another sign you should let your current relationship go. You shouldn't be playing with two people. If you do want to be with someone else, you should let your current partner find someone else that will make them happy.

6. You have feelings for someone else

This is different than just wanting to be with someone else. This is you actually having feelings for someone else. Have you ever expressed those feelings? Have they returned the feelings? These are questions that you've got to ask yourself before you end your relationship.

7. Resentment

How do you feel toward your partner? Do you feel a bit resentful because you are in a relationship at all? Resentment is not a good feeling in a relationship and it can actually cause a lot of problems. If you're feeling resentful because you are in a relationship at all, it's time to end it.

8. You want to be alone

Maybe you don't want to be with anyone at all and instead, you want to be by yourself. It's okay for you to want to be by yourself. You've just got to stop playing with the person you are currently with and let them know where your head it at.

9. You've lost yourself

Finally, you've completely and totally lost yourself and you almost don't recognize yourself at all. This is another thing that you've got to consider. You should be able to still be yourself while being in a relationship, remember that!

These are just a few of the many signs you've got to watch out for whenever you are thinking about letting go of your relationship. It's hard to say that it's over, but sometimes, it needs to be done. So, how many relationships have you been in that you've needed to end?
