Five Signs You've Outgrown Your Relationship

And you don't even realize it.

Posted on

1. Things Aren't Going Anywhere

Maybe your partner isn’t self-sufficient or you’re waiting on “the talk” that’ll never happen. If your relationship is stagnant, it’s probably time to move on. As they say, if you’re not growing together, you’re growing apart. And that’s okay. ⠀

2. You Have Nothing In Common Anymore

Maybe when you met, you both had the same goals and interests. You probably talked about marriage, kids, careers or even finances. But that was then and this is now. When you think about your future, your partner doesn’t fit. You may be ready to settle down while they’re still in their party phase. Your beliefs could be different now. Just do yourself a favor and don’t drag it out.

3. You Spend A Lot Of Time Thinking Of What Else Is Out There For You

Whether you find yourself thinking about your ex or dreaming about new relationships, it’s time for you to let go. You definitely don’t want to stir up more trouble in your relationship by getting caught up in something. And if you think you deserve better, you probably do.

4. It's An On-Again-Off-Again Relationship

Nothing is worse than a dysfunctional relationship. If you find yourself constantly breaking up with your partner or having the same arguments, you might need to go your own way. You can’t build on a rocky foundation anyways, so why prolong the process?

5. You're Not Yourself

You were vibrant when you got together, but now you’re totally dull. Your relationship feels more like a job than a bond and you feel stuck. Don’t lose yourself trying to make something that doesn’t work work.
