Break-up is one of the most horrible stages of a relationship. Even when our relationship starts to fall apart we tend to stick by, in a hope to revive it somehow. The signs a relationship is over seem clear yet we deliberately choose to ignore them owing to the fact that we all are scared of – The End.

It’s always difficult to know when to walk out and it’s never easy. The pain that follows is exhausting and devastating, however, to stay back in a relationship that isn’t adding happiness is unworthy of your emotions and time, both.

Respect is the foundation of any relationship in the world, especially love. Take a step back and analyze, if you and your partner both admire each other. You may think of him/her as a good person, yet you may have a feeling that his/her words aren’t worth your attention. If you and your partner both feel the same way and still wondering what’s wrong, perhaps you both need to step out of it for good.

2. You Are Failing To Communicate.

In a healthy relationship, partners never fail to communicate. The lack of communication leaves a big void in your relationship. It’s the origin of minor problems which turn into unnecessary arguments. When you no longer feel the need to discuss the problems that are causing the distance between you two, it’s one of the most alarming signs a relationship is over. That’s a careless attitude and you know that your relationship is on its way out.

3. You Don’t Feel The Sexual Connection Anymore.

If you are stuck in the sphere where you are wondering how to know your relationship is over, then take this point downright serious.

Sexual desires are extremely important in a relationship. There are times when you feel it’s not exciting as before, however, you do feel the need to have sex with your partner. That’s alright as it’s one of the stages of intimate relationships.

The real problem kicks in when you do not feel the need at all to have sex with your partner. It’s like your sex life has gone from 100 to 0 and the worst of all you have no desire to make efforts to make it better. You know what to do, just come out and accept that there is no future to it.

4. Your Future Plans Seem Blur Together.
