You think you’re in a long-term relationship. Your loved ones think otherwise. It’s mostly a habit and you misunderstand it for love. Sound familiar? Then read on…

1. You love the idea of being in love

Everyone loves to be loved. And you’re not any different. You think you’re in love with this person, but all you really are, is in love with the idea of being in a relationship.

2. You’re scared of being lonely

No one likes to be lonely. But sometimes it’s important to be by yourself and introspect. Rather than being with someone wrong.

3. You think it’s love, but it’s only attachment

You’re habituated. That can easily be misunderstood as love. If you do something for long enough, it becomes a habit; the habit of meeting, texting, going on holidays together (that you really don’t enjoy) are all just out of habit. You stay, thinking it’ll all get better, but the reality is that it won’t. It’s only attachment that will eventually fade.

4. You don’t want to meet your SO everyday

And they don’t want to meet you every day, either. The both of you make excuses to not meet up every day, and the worst part is that even though you know the other is making an excuse, neither cares enough.

5. You fight more often than not

It’s obvious, isn’t it? You don’t get along like you used to and now it’s causing friction. This is clearly one of the easiest signs to spot.

6. You don’t get each other

Both of you have evolved and grown out of the relationship. Each have different opinions and now you’ve stopped making an effort to understand each other’s point of view.

7. Your priorities are different

Your priorities have changed. And your relationship does not necessarily make the list.

8. You get attracted to others quickly

You feel deprived of love often, so anyone else coming along, being nice and giving you attention makes you feel loved and you get attracted to them quickly.

9. You feel unhappy very often

It comes down to you feeling lonely. You get snappy and you have no one to turn to. This makes you sad and could cause depression.

10. Your family and friends want you to end it

While it is true that no one other than the two people in a relationship knows what really goes on between them, you should always listen to your loved ones. And hear out their concerns. Listen to them because they might tell you something that you have been turning a blind eye to, or willfully ignoring.

Know that, it’s probably time to call it quits if you can relate to a majority of these signs.
