Love is probably the best feeling in the world, but sometimes our feelings change and we do not feel the same way about our partner the way we used to. Some of the most common signs showing that a couple is going to break up are frequent quarrels and avoidance of being with one another for a long time.
There are, of course, many others, but today we are not going to talk about the signs as such, but about the things people begin to say to one another showing that their relationship is going to meet its end soon. Here they are!
#1 I don’t know what I want
If your partner tells you that he/she does not know what they want, then you should probably consider the option of breaking up with them. If a person does not know what they want in a relationship, this could either mean that they are afraid of commitment and taking their relationship to the next level, or that they do not want to be in this relationship any longer and are just telling their partner this so that they do not make them feel bad and sad. Either way you should definitely consider breaking up with your partner, or even take this step, if they tell you this phrase. It seems that your relationship has come to its end.
#2 It is not you, it is me
Just think about how many times we have heard this phrase, not only when it comes to our personal relationship, but also in movies, friends’ stories and many others. Well, surprisingly enough, people still say this phrase even if it is so common that there is probably not a single person left believing in the genuineness of the phrase.
People say this phrase probably because sometimes they really believe in it, but in most of the cases they do not want to feel guilty about breaking up with their partner and to feel bad about making another human being suffer. Whatever the reason is, you should know that it is time to let go of your relationship and move on.
#3 I am not ready to give up the single life yet
If your partner tells you that they still have not made the most of their single life and are too young to give it up, then there is nothing else you can do, but to give them this freedom. This is one of the most common reasons of couple breakups. One of the partners wants commitment while the other is afraid of it and they are still not ready to imagine spending the rest of their life with only one person.
You may think that men are the ones who are mostly afraid of commitment, but there are also women who are not ready to take this step even if they truly love their partner. So, if you end up in such a relationship, it is best to let go of your partner to lead their life the way they want.
#4 This does not mean that we will not get back together. We are only taking a break of our relationship.
Here is another phrase a lot of people are familiar with. When one of the partners want a break from their relationship, this means that the couple is probably not going to get back together. Sometimes people say it because they do not want to feel guilty, or they want to leave a loophole so that they do not end up alone.
Well, as much as we may hate to admit it, in most of the cases taking a break from one’s relationship foretells the end of the relationship. Even if the couple get back together the things will never be the same as they used to be. There is no point in fooling yourself or your partner that your relationship could be cured. It is like trying to fix a vase. You can glue the pieces back together, but the cracks are going to be seen.
#5 I want you to be happy, but I am not the one that can make you happy
The last phrase in our list is a bit similar to the ones above. If your partner tells you that you need to break up because he/she is not the one to make you happy, you can be sure that this is the end of your relationship and you are not getting back together. And in a lot of the cases, this was not the real reason for the break-up. The partners are trying to fool themselves to believe in it, but often the reason for the break-up is another man or a woman. So, you need to be prepared for this as well.
