10 Signs Your Relationship Is Over

Some relationships may start quickly, but they almost never end as fast. After fatal relationship mistakes are made, things may feel different but not dead. A subtle feeling of discomfort can morph into a dead-end relationship so slowly that it's impossible to recognize. Here are 10 signs your relationship has sailed.

  1. You're always the one calling and initiating IMs and texts.
  2. Your significant other stops offering to pay and does fewer favors.
  3. Fewer terms of endearment are used — by either of you.
  4. When you do hang out, you choose nontalking activities like watching a movie.
  5. You're relieved when plans are canceled.
  6. The sex stops. Obvious but true!
  7. When you imagine your future, your significant other is not there.
  8. You spend more time with friends separately.
  9. You're always daydreaming about what it would be like to date other guys.
  10. One of you is cheating. It sounds as obvious as no sex, yet people stay in unfaithful relationships all the time.

What's clued you in on a relationship that was through?

# 9 is kind of stupid. It's true that I have more fun when my bf's there with me, but I can also have fun dancing with my

When he started pushing my buttons on purpose was a definite red flag for me. He didn't have the balls to break up with me himself, so he was trying to piss me off so that I would do the dirty work.

I have to agree with anon about #9. I am happily married but I love going out dancing. It would be better if my husband liked to go dancing too but he hates that kind of music and won't go. So I go with a couple of girlfriends, and dance by myself and just let it be known that I'm married and don't let men dance up on me. You can do #9 while being in a happy relationship.

I'll add in #12, when you or your SO goes out and gets trashed every weekend instead of hanging with you/your SO. Or one just fobs the other off completely.

If half the stuff on here is happening to you, or if you're even concerned enough to really look up this list chances are you're already on this boat. Don't forget the dramamine!

Being relieved when I was able to be by myself. Not in a "me time" sort of way, but in a "get me out of here!" kind of way.

Let's see... 3, 6, 7, 8, 10 - CHECK! (Though I had no idea about 10 until he came clean after we broke up...) I'd also like to add a number 11 to the list, that kind of coincides with number 3. 11. He calls you by your last name, or a shortened version of it

Wish I had this list 2 years ago. Oh well, you live and learn, and I am happy now.

Four times in a row when I was with him, he got so trashed he passed out and started snoring while we were in bed together.
