So once you start recognising signs it’s time to walk away, do so.

1. You Don’t Look Forward To Seeing Him

Part of having a boyfriend is spending time with him. You know, like going on dates and talking about your days and shit? That’s actually kind of the main part of being in a relationship with anyone.

So – obvious as it may sound – if you don’t enjoy that, you should really consider if you’re getting anything or enough out of the relationship.

2. You Question His Respect For You

If he’s condescending or doesn’t care about what’s important to you or teases you in a way you don’t like, you should probably bring it up and be able to have an honest conversation or think about leaving.

He has to respect your heart and your mind to get to your body.

3. You Continue Having The Same Fight

If you have the same fight again and again, you might have to stop telling yourself that “this will be the last time.” Not to give you a rude awakening, but it won’t be the last time.

Ask yourself why this fight keeps happening, if it’s something that can be fixed, and how many more times you’re really willing to have the fight.

4. He Doesn’t Seem To Understand What’s Important To You

If you don’t feel heard, like he doesn’t listen or care about what you’re doing and what’s important to you, you may want to leave.

If you’re putting effort into asking about his day and demonstrating interest in things that are important to him, you deserve the reciprocation.

5. You’re Sure You Don’t See A Future With Him

If you know for a fact you don’t want to be dating this time next year, then ask yourself if you should even continue dating now.

Maybe it’s worth having a little more time for fun and good sex, but if you could be out there right now meeting someone better who you see a brighter future with, don’t let a current dead end hold you back.
