You might like him a whole lot — hell, you might even love him by now — but that doesn’t mean you’re meant to be together. Long-term relationships require a whole lot more than a general fondness for the other person or the desire to jump their bones. If you can relate to any of the following, you’re probably with the wrong guy:
You’ve got different ideas about date night.
When it comes to date night, you and your partner couldn’t possibly be on further sides of the spectrum. There is literally no activity you could do together that both of you would enjoy doing.
You can never agree on what to watch.
In today’s day and age, having a series to binge together has become a bonding activity, and as a relationship progresses, staying in together becomes more routine. If you and your partner can’t agree on what to watch — ever — you may be wrong for each other.
You don’t appreciate each other’s weirdness.
He likes video games and sports, you’re more into reading YA novels and knitting. You don’t have to love each other’s hobbies and should totally have your own, but if you find each other’s weird (and not in an endearing way), there’s a problem.
You show love in entirely different ways.
You’re incredibly affectionate and your partner is colder than a freezer-burned chicken breast. Your differences are helpful for creating a healthy union, but if you’re too different, it can cause both parties to feel as though you aren’t getting the type of love you need.
You lead completely different lifestyles.
One of you is incredibly health conscious and the other is a couch potato who eats nothing but fast food. Although you both fell for one another despite these differences, at the end of the day, if your lifestyles don’t match up even slightly, you’re going to spend the rest of your lives arguing about it.
Being together is exhausting.
If you don’t feel refreshed and happy after spending an evening with your partner, than he’s definitely wrong for you. A relationship should energize you and create happiness you didn’t have before, not bring you down.
You’re pretty sure he’s up to something shady.
This is pretty self-explanatory. If you don’t trust your partner, he’s wrong for you, and it doesn’t matter if it’s because of broken trust in the relationship or just because of a feeling you have. No trust equals relationship failure.
Different things make you laugh.
Couples that laugh together have a better chance of going the distance. After all, it’s how you cope with all the crappy stuff that crops up in life from time to time. If you’re not on the same page about what’s funny and what isn’t, it’s not going to work.
You feel more like friends or siblings than romantic partners.
It’s important that couples are friends, best friends even, but if there’s not a romantic spark there, you shouldn’t be in a romantic relationship.
You don’t remember relationship milestones.
If you have to be reminded of things like anniversaries, or even roll over them like they don’t exist, that’s a bad sign. These things should be celebrated, so if neither of you care to, then it’s a good sign that you don’t care enough about the relationship.
You never talk about each other.
When you’re with your friends or family, you have no desire to talk about your relationship or gush about your partner. If it’s as if your partner doesn’t exist when he’s not around, you’re definitely wrong for each other.
Your future together scares you.
It’s normal to be a bit scared when it comes to ‘forever’ but if you’re more scared than excited to settle down, then it’s your gut telling you that you won’t be happy with him for the rest of your life.
You easily picture yourself with other guys.
If you meet a new guy and can instantly picture a relationship with him, you’re not invested enough in the one you’re already in. If you were with the right person, the thought of dating someone else wouldn’t ever cross your mind.
He doesn’t feel like home.
If the person you’re with doesn’t give you a sense of belonging, as if you’ve finally found the place you were meant to be, he’s not right for you. It’s as simple as that.
