We all want to find 'The One', but sadly this means we have to go through a lot of the wrong ones before we find them.
It can be easy to waste your time on someone with whom you have no future, which can mean you miss out on being with a person who is a much better match.
Rather than waiting around for everything to fizzle out completely, here are ten signs that could help you figure out when it's time to call it a day and move on.
They ignore you
If your partner is being a lot less attentive and tends to ignore you when it suits them, it could be a sign that they are just keeping you around for convenience.
Things like not answering your calls, failing to respond to messages, cancelling plans last minute and generally not wanting to spend time with you all indicate that things may be turning sour.
Rather than waiting around and being made to feel like you're not good enough, it might be time to leave them to it. After all, if they don't want to talk to you or spend time with you, why should you bother?
They don't want you to meet their friends
A relationship is all about sharing, which means you should be willing to spend time with each other's friends and family. However, if your partner doesn't want you to meet their friends, you need to ask yourself why.
Refusal for you to meet their friends or family could be because they are hiding something. Fair enough if it is early days and they want to see how things are going, but if you have been together for a while and they are still refusing, it could indicate that they aren't being totally truthful.
You deserve to be with someone who wants to introduce you to people, not keep you hidden away.
They lie to you
If you keep catching your partner out in lies, -no matter how big or small – it is time to head for the door.
You should be able to trust that they will tell you the truth the majority of the time. While we all tell the odd white lie, continuously bending the truth really isn't the way to go and can lead to problems down the lie.
So, if you've caught them out on one lie too many, kick them to the curb and find someone who will be more honest.
They are careless with your feelings
You want to be with someone who takes your feelings into account, so if someone regularly says or does things that they know will upset you, it might be worth walking away.
Little things like forgetting special occasions regularly, not involving you in plans, telling people things they know you don't want shared, or choosing others over you when it comes to arguments or plans are all signs they might not give enough thought to your feelings.
One of the biggest parts of a relationship is caring for each other and if they don't seem to care for you, why are you sticking around?
They cheat on you
While one lapse may be forgivable, cheating on you more than once indicates they don't respect you. It also damages trust, which is one of the fundamentals of any relationship.
If you can't trust your partner not to screw around behind your back, it is time to find someone who respects you enough to remain faithful.
If any of these sound like your partner, it could be time to say goodbye. This doesn't mean you have to be alone though, as there are plenty of eligible singles on Classical Music Lovers just waiting for your message.
