Signs your dating relationship is over
Don't get in the way of your own TRUE happiness. It can be even harder once you've found him and start wondering, "Is he the one?
whatever you call him, finding the right man is no easy task.
So, I'm cautioning you — make sure you don't miss out on a wonderful man because you're too focused on disqualifying him.
Keep your eyes (and heart) open to noticing where the men you date excel.
If your partner’s repeated response to your raising issues or needs is to a) ignore them b) tell you you’re wrong c) lie and/or d) refuse to modify their behavior, get gone already.
If said unhappiness is due to you/your partner being emotionally abusive in any way, LEAVE NOW AND DON’T LOOK BACK.
The more that you answer “yes” to these possibilities, the greater likelihood of a problem.

I’m going to describe these 16 “time to break up” signs in reference to my own relationships, so in all the following scenarios the person with whom my imaginary relationship is ending will be “him” — that is, a gay man.There are always pressures from outside – jobs, kids, distances, families, friends – and occasional tensions between you, especially when you’re years in, living together and grappling with self-realization at the same time as being part of a couple.But with talking and communication and a certain amount of effort from both parties to prioritise the relationship and compromise on whatever’s causing the problem, it really is possible to come through stronger.There’s a lot of inertia around relationships – often, it’s easier to stay in something even though you know it’s not working or not what you really want than initiate the trauma of ending it and an uncertain future.So often, though, when you finally take the plunge and get out of a dysfunctional relationship the relief and freedom and potential of future connections is overwhelming.
There are often signs of an imbalance of power in a relationship that are overlooked and can lead to more serious abuse.
