Some say that falling out of love is more like hard work, but it has to be said that a surprising number of relationships fall to pieces over the same mistakes.
These 10 ways to lose your lover are frighteningly common reasons stated by couples as to why they fell out of love with their partner and decided to go their separate ways.
10. War Of The Wallets
If there’s a more contentious topic in relationships, we have no idea what it is. Don’t get to warring over finances, take the time early in a relationship and set out clear limits and boundaries along with complete financial transparency. Otherwise, sooner or later the want of a few bucks could derail your love.
9. Passive-Aggressive Behavior With Your Partner
Disagreements and moments of upset are normal in any relationship. Responding to those moments with passive-aggressive behavior towards your partner are not good, though. Have the courage to air your issues and try and work on them together if you want things to last. Letting resentment seethe isn’t healthy.
8. “I Told You So” Drives People Insane
While it’s always nice to know that we were right and that our partner could have avoided a mistake if they had listened, it’s not nice to rub their face in that fact. Saying or even implying “I told you so” can quickly put somebody’s back up and leave them feeling unloved.
7. Not Repaying Their Trust In You
At the heart of every relationship is simply a bond of trust. It’s the emotional device by which we extend love, compassion and care for someone else. If you play fast and loose with someone’s trust, sooner or later that trust dies and with it, the relationship dies.
