One of the biggest challenges in a relationship is when you feel that you’re the only one in your relationship who cares. Your partner isn’t doing their fair share and they’re relying on you to do whatever it is that needs to be done. You don’t need a relationship where your partner makes no effort at all and you end up doing everything. Hell, even your horoscope has warned you about staying out of a situation like that.
If your partner isn’t pulling their relationship weight, why are you with them anyway? You could probably have the same benefits by being single that you’re getting in a one-sided relationship.
When someone doesn’t put in enough of an effort, they’re effectively telling you that your relationship doesn’t mean very much to them and that they don’t care if it thrives, survives, or goes away.
One of the ways that we learn about other people and the things that are important to them is by their actions. If your partner is too lazy to plan a date with you or help with the household chores, what does that say about your importance in their life?
Maybe they don’t really have much interest in taking your relationship to the next level but are too weak to make a clean break. They might be passively trying to get you to end things so that they don’t look like the villain but the victim of a bad relationship.
If your partner ultimately feels very little regarding your relationship, you need to know so that you can take charge and end things. You want to be with someone who puts in as much as you do in a relationship. You want them to feel excited and fortunate to be with you, not someone who is just killing time before their next relationship.
We all deserve relationships that are fulfilling, healthy, exciting, and help us to grow. Don’t make do with the relationship you have if it’s not giving you anything and forcing you to make all the effort.
Here are the zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends and how he’s not doing nearly enough for your relationship.
He only sees you when it’s convenient for him. As long as you pick the place, make the reservations, and it doesn’t interfere with his plans, he’ll spend time with you. He makes it clear that if something (or someone) better comes along, then he’s gone. You don’t need to feel like a placeholder, so move on and find somebody who makes you feel special.
If you invite him to a theatrical event like a play, concert, or dance recital, he will go but will complain about it the whole time. Afterward, he acts as if he did you a favor and uses the outing as leverage to get you to do the things he wants. When he acts like an ass and ruins your fun, you’ve really got to wonder if it’s worth it. You’d probably have a better time with a friend or if you made it a date with yourself.
He’s never the first person to say “I love you” and he never initiates any kind of love talk or affection session. It’s as if he doesn’t want to look bad or leave you hanging, so he’ll respond when you tell him that you love him but his love for you isn’t something he feels deeply about. If you never mentioned the word love, then he’d never say it in any context that has to do with you.
He doesn’t text you when he wakes up in the morning, when he goes to bed at night, when something amazing happens or when he’s bored. He’ll respond to your texts but he takes no initiative of his own in regards to communicating with you. He doesn’t care about your day or if you got sick at work, he just blindly goes about his business without considering how you’re doing.
