Although relationships are an important part of human life, some people may be caught in fake and entangled relationships just for the tag of ‘being with someone’ and to not be single. Are you in one such relationship? Read on to know the indicators of a fake relationship.
1 Communication gap
Are you and your partner unable to communicate without fighting or misunderstanding each other? Then you maybe in a fake relationship. Communication is one of the biggest assets and aspects of a true relationship.
2 Enjoy yourself alone
Some sense of individuality should be there in each relationship. But if you seem to enjoy yourself much more than when you are with your partner, this could be an important red flag of a fake relationship.
3 Easy to be apart
Is it easy for you to be apart or not speak to your partner for days? True relationships mean yearning for each others company and finding it hard to be apart. If it’s too easy for you, you may be in a fake relationship.
4 Feel like you don’t know your partner
Do you feel like you do not really know the true self of your partner? Sometimes what they say or do may be so surprising that you feel you do not know the person at all. This can mean a fake relationship.
5 No growth
If you feel there is no sense of growth in the relationship in terms of trust, honesty or communication, then it may mean a fake relationship.
6 Victim-perpetrator roles
Is it that instead of both partners seeking responsibility for a fight and also both playing a role in getting better, is there a sort of victim-perpetrator dance where someone is always the victim and someone always the instigator? Then you may be in a fake relationship.
7 Looking for other partners
If you feel more than just attracted to other people, when you actually wonder what it would be like to be in a relationship with them, that is definitely a red flag that the current relationship is a fake one and your heart is not in it any more.
8 Lack of trust
Is there a lack of trust in the relationship? Can you be truthful and honest about your secrets with your partner, without the fear of a lash back or that they may leave you? If no, then you are definitely in a fake relationship as a true one would be built on trust.
What can you do?
Depending on how strong your feelings are for the person, you may either want to turn the fake relationship to a more real one, or you may have to be single and leave the relationship. It’s not easy to make a fake relationship real, and you may need counseling and guidance, which you can find at ewellnessexpert.com. However, if you feel the relationship is not worth the effort, it’s better to walk away the soonest and keep yourself busy with other things. It will hurt initially but you will heal with time and will be better off and more satisfied alone.
