It’s the end of an era for T.I. and Tiny Harris. Along with the end of their VH1 reality series, the couple announced their impending divorce last December. ┬áWe might think that being in love with somebody is easy and that everything will all fit into place. But it isnΓÇÖt quite the same as in the movies, it takes a lot of work to make a relationship last; it needs to be properly maintained.
Lots of people might be willing to end things at the first sign of trouble, but just because youΓÇÖve had a few problems it doesnΓÇÖt mean that the relationship is over completely. Sometimes you can work things out and the relationship will be stronger than ever. But that isnΓÇÖt always the case. In certain circumstances, you need to realize that it is time to end the relationship altogether. If you think that things might be on the rocks, here are some signs that you should look for.
YouΓÇÖre Bored.┬áIn the early stages of a relationship, there is bound to be a lot if romance. Your partner used to make plenty of romantic gestures all of the time, but these days itΓÇÖs more sitting in front of the TV. ThereΓÇÖs nothing wrong with spending time with your partner on the sofa, but if thatΓÇÖs all that you do, things can start to get boring. The best thing is to get your partnerΓÇÖs attention and let them know that you want to spend more romantic time with them. It doesnΓÇÖt have to be anything major, just taking you out for dinner once in awhile. If you do tell your partner that you want them to make things more interesting, and they donΓÇÖt do anything about it, then maybe they arenΓÇÖt really that invested in the relationship.
You Have Bad Communication.┬áOne of the most important things in a relationship is communication. Working through problems together is the only way that you can move the relationship forward. If you and your partner arenΓÇÖt communicating anymore then you are likely to be running into problems. That doesnΓÇÖt mean you should cut ties right away — talk to your partner and try to get a good dialogue going. If you have recently broken up with your partner, before you had a chance to really talk, maybe it’s worth having that conversation you never had. Knowing┬áhow to make your ex want you back┬ámeans knowing why he or she left you in the first place. You need to start by communicating your feelings with them properly. ┬áIf you can learn to express yourselves better, there might be a chance for your relationship.
If one or more of these problems persists for a long period, then maybe itΓÇÖs time to think about ending your relationship.
