5 Reasons You Need To Break Up With Your Partner, Even If There Is Nothing "Wrong"

They make you miss your ex

This might be the worst one, because the right partner should make you completely forget that your ex even exists anymore.

If your current partner has you reminiscing over happier times with an ex, you're probably just with them for the sake of having a partner.

You shouldn't have to convince yourself that you like your partner.

You enjoy the idea that they're more into you than you are them

I have an ex who once said, "Whoever likes the other person least has the most power in the relationship." She was obsessed with the idea that she was way more into me than I was her.

If you enjoy the idea that your partner cares more about you than you do them, and you enjoy all of the attention and praise they give you, you're just with them because it's safe.

You can't be hurt by someone you don't really like.

You're just bored

What all of this really comes down to is how bored you are with the relationship. And sometimes, drawing out a "bored" relationship can cause a lot of pain to the other person.

Don't be in a relationship just for the sake of being in a relationship. You're just wasting each other's time. Find someone you truly like and then go for it.
