How many times have you wondered if you were with the right person?
How many nights have you stayed awake contemplating every life choice you’ve ever made because you were in an unhappy relationship?
Is this how you imagined your love life to be, always overthinking and stressing about what is going to happen next? Is it being single that scares you or are you afraid of being in a one-sided relationship?
Many a time, the signs of a one-sided relationship are right in front of our eyes but most people tend to overlook those signals because our judgement is clouded by our feelings.
But what are those signs? How can one know for sure whether or not they’re in a one sided relationship?
Unfortunately, there isn’t any way to know for sure but there are some major signs that are prevalent in most one-sided relationships.
(1) You’re Always Initiating The Communication:
If you’re at a place in your relationship where you feel like you’re always the one texting first, calling them, making plans to hang out with them, then that might be a red flag.
In a relationship where love is mutual, both partners are equally excited to spend time with each other. One person should not be putting in all the efforts.
(2) They’re Distracted When They’re With You:
When two people who love each other are together, that time matters the most to them.
They are in their little bubble and want to stay disconnected with the outer world for as long as they can.
However, if your partner seems to be distracted during this time, they might not be that enthusiastic to spend their time with you.
(3) They Don’t Include You:
The most special thing about being in a relationship is that you find a person who can be there to support you in all your decisions. They help you decide when you’re stuck.
They involve you in the decision-making process. If you feel like your partner isn’t as excited to share their life decisions, big or small, with you, then that might be another problematic sign in a relationship.
(4) They Aren’t Supportive Of You:
If you feel like your partner is always trying to discourage you, bring you down or isn’t supportive of you and your life choices, then that is the thumbnail of an unhealthy relationship.
Don’t get it confused with your partner always taking you side, of course, the person should be honest with you and tell you when you aren’t on the right path, however, they shouldn’t always be trying to make you do what they think is the best for you.
They should be understanding and supportive of your choices.
(5) They’re Trying To Change You:
Has your girlfriend ever told you to not dress a particular way? Or has your boyfriend casually mentioned how you should lose a few pounds?
These might seem like tiny little sentences but when you think – about it, you’ll understand how the person you’re with is always trying to change you, mould you into something they want and that’s just straight-up unhealthy.
A relationship shouldn’t be guided by materialistic aspects.
(6) They Hide Things From You:
The key to a happy relationship is privacy, not secrecy.
If you feel like your partner is hiding things with you that you would easily share with them, then you might be going out on a limb here.
They shouldn’t have things that they want to hide from you if they’re genuinely in love with you.
(7) They Aren’t Loyal:
This cannot be stressed enough. Loyalty is the foundation of a happy and loving relationship.
If your partner is always talking about other people in a way that they should be talking about you, then pack your bags and walk out of that relationship without wasting another second.
A relationship is supposed to be 50-50. The love, affection, efforts and time that you give to your partner should come back to you like an image in the mirror.
If the person you’re with isn’t portraying the same amount of energy that you are then you’re in it to get your heart-broken.
If you feel like you’re in a one-sided relationship too, then take a step back and look for these signs.
