If you’re unsure about your current relationship, you may be wondering if you’re in the wrong relationship entirely. It can be hard to know if you’re with someone out of fear of being single, or if you’re genuinely the right fit for one another. Thankfully, there are some telling signs that you’re in the wrong relationship. Here are 5 signs you’re with the wrong person:

1. They’re unreliable.

You can’t count on them to show up for you. In both big and small ways, they let you down and have proven themselves to be unreliable.

Maybe you ask them to take the trash out and they say that they will and don’t. Maybe they promise they can pick up your friend from the airport and don’t show up. Or, maybe you just can’t count on them to do anything.

Their word doesn’t mean much because you never know if they’ll follow through – but you can assume they won’t.

The right person will show up for you in big and small ways. They stay true to their word and don’t let you down on a consistent basis. When you’re with the right person, you know you can depend on them.

2. You’re stagnant.

You’re not growing in life. Areas that you want to improve on or set goals in are not seeing progress.

Perhaps you’re not working out anymore or moving up in your career. Your priorities may have taken the back burner to your relationship and you’re feeling a bit stagnant.

Your relationship doesn’t encourage or foster growth. Your partner isn’t pushing you to be the best version possible and may even be holding you back from achieving the things you want.

When you’re with the right person, growth is cultivated and nurtured. You encourage one another to grow and push one another to be better.

3. You daydream about others.

You may find your mind wandering and wondering – what if? Maybe you’re thinking of a cute coworker or that person you really “click” with. You may wonder what it’d be like to be with someone like them instead.

You may find yourself daydreaming of being with that other person or even of being single again.

Though these innocent fantasies may seem harmless enough, they may be a sign you’re ready for something different and you’re currently in the wrong relationship.

4. You constantly have to explain yourself.

They are always questioning you and seemingly don’t trust you. You regularly have to explain your whereabouts and justify things to them, despite giving them no reason not to trust you.

They want all the details of who you’re with, what you’re doing, where you’re doing it, etc., but may get defensive if you ask the same of them. In other words, things are a bit one-sided and they’re allowed to question you, but you’re not allowed to question them to the same extent.

Constantly explaining yourself can be exhausting and take a huge toll on your mental health. When you find the right person, your soulmate, neither of you will have to explain yourselves or justify your whereabouts – there will be enough trust in the relationship to simply enjoy life together, without constant scrutiny.

5. You’re unhappy.

Something is “off” and you’re generally unhappy. Things may be fine, but not great and you feel like there’s something more waiting for you.

Of course, you shouldn’t rely on a relationship or partner to make you happy or provide you with fulfillment. But, it’s important to make sure your relationship isn’t taking away from your happiness and fulfillment in life.

With the right partner, you can enjoy the small beauties life has to offer, together. You can bask in one another’s happiness and embrace it as your own. You’re not left wondering if something is missing or if you’re being held back by the person you love.

Finding your soulmate.

If you’re with the wrong person, it may be time to let go and allow yourself space to find your soulmate. Maybe you’re infatuated but not in love, or maybe you’re just complacent. Either way, giving yourself space to welcome in that right match will be worth it in the long-run.

In fact, it’s better to stay single until you find your soulmate than occupy yourself with someone who’s emotionally draining or unsupportive of growth.

Though it can be really challenging to let go of a relationship, even an unhealthy one, sometimes you must do the hard thing to do the right thing.For more expert relationship advice and tips on how to make a long lasting relationship, watch this video: Click Here To Watch The Full Video
