People try to force relationships to make it work; they probably have feelings for each other and feel it’s enough to make them have a beautiful relationship together, but no matter how hard they try, the relationship doesn’t just work out.
There are signs that sometimes show you aren’t right for each other, and when these signs are present, even love might not be enough to make it work.
These are some of those signs:
1. YOU HAVE DIFFERENT IDEAS OF WHAT A RELATIONSHIP SHOULD BE LIKE
For a relationship to be successful, both partners need to have similar perception of what the relationship should look like. When you both have different ideas and you can’t merge them together, your relationship would be filled with frequent quarrels and arguments.
2. YOU WANT DIFFERENT THINGS
Wanting different things in a relationship is even worse than having different ideas of how a relationship should be. You are both at different points in what you want from that relationship, the relationship can hardly ever be successful.
You can’t always want the same thing in a relationship, but at least there should be similar goals and desires from both partners in the relationship, and there should be a good level of understanding in your different desires.
3. YOU HIDE WHO YOU ARE
If you both aren’t comfortable being yourself when you are together, then you aren’t right for each other. You should be your true self when in a relationship and your partner should love you for who you really are.
4. YOU CAN’T LIVE WITH EACH OTHER’S FLAWS
There is no perfect person or perfect relationship, but there is probably an imperfectly perfect relationship, where both partners love each other and live peaceably with each other in spite of their flaws. If you can’t live with each other’s flaws, you aren’t right for each other.
5. YOU DON’T TAKE EACH OTHER’S LIFE SERIOUSLY
A major reason many couples fight a lot is when they feel their job, career, likes and interests aren’t taken seriously. For a relationship to be successful, both partners should take the important things of each other’s life serious; that’s how to be there for each other.
6. YOU BOTH SEEK CONTROL OF THE RELATIONSHIP
If you are both dominating partners who tend to seek control of the relationship, your relationship with each other would be full of chaos.
7. YOU DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO EACH
A lot of couples live their lives and focus on just their dreams and goals, forgetting that they are in a relationship and that their partner needs just as much attention. If you can’t make time for each other and give each other enough attention, you are probably not right for each other.
8. YOU ARE BOTH DEFENSIVE
For a relationship to really work, you have to stop being the defensive partner and accept your mistakes and change from it. But defensive people don’t accept responsibilities, they don’t say sorry and they feel they are always right. If you and your partner are like this, your relationship wouldn’t be healthy.
9. YOU DON’T TAKE THE RELATIONSHIP SERIOUS
You ought to take your relationship serious and treat it that way, and if you don’t, your relationship would definitely suffer. If you are in such a nonchalant relationship, then you probably aren’t right enough for each other.
It’s not enough to like or love each other; if these signs are present in your relationship, love might not be enough.
