Here are 20 Signs To Know it’s Time To Break Up that can help you make the decision.
1. You crave to be alone.
Wanting to spend every second with your partner would be weird and would mean that you are in need of affection. It’s normal to want to be a little alone. But if you desperately want time for yourself and don’t want him or her around, it’s clear that your relationship is frustrating you more than it makes you happy.
2. You are no longer dating
Even if you live together, never neglect one-on-one dates. Having s*x or watching TV in silence is not enough to maintain a harmonious relationship.
3. You’d rather see your friends than your partner
A healthy relationship is hanging out alone or with your significant other. Not wanting to live with your roommates again instead of your lover.
4. You don’t make love anymore
Your libido can be low for several reasons, including stress or medical treatment. On the other hand, if you no longer like your partner, and sex becomes a chore or even ceases to exist, listen to the alarm bells.

8. You don’t chat
Chatting – about everything and nothing, about the news, about the day’s work – is the foundation of a good relationship. If you stop discussing mundane things, the days of seeing each other as good friends are over.
9. You nitpick all the time
Constant nitpicking is a sign of dissatisfaction and a lack of appreciation in a relationship. If you find yourself constantly finding fault in your partner, it may be a sign that you’re no longer happy in the relationship or that you’re looking for reasons to justify a breakup.
10. He constantly nitpicks
If you have the impression of irritating your partner all the time, it is because he is unhappy, even uncomfortable in your company. He may want to leave you, but doesn’t have the courage to bring up the subject. If he or she makes you feel incompetent, do you really want to be around?
11. You do all the household chores
If you’re doing all the household chores, it may be a sign of an unequal distribution of responsibilities in the relationship. This can lead to feelings of resentment and dissatisfaction, as well as a sense of being taken for granted
12. Your looks don’t matter anymore
Love doesn’t mean letting go. If you don’t care about pleasing him anymore, it’s a big blow to your sex life – and to your relationship.
13. The days to be marked with a white stone pass by the wayside
Anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and other big days may seem trivial, but a couple in love will make allowances for it one way or another, even if it’s just with a scribbled piece of paper announcing “Saint “Valentine sucks, let’s spend the day in bed.” When you forget your respective birthdays it may be a sign of breakup.
14. You are the one to give
A one-sided relationship where one partner is doing all the giving can be emotionally draining and unsustainable in the long term. If you find yourself always giving and not receiving anything in return, it may be a sign that your partner is not invested in the relationship
15. You feel insecure around each other
Feeling insecure around your partner is a sign of a lack of trust and emotional connection in the relationship. If you constantly feel like you’re walking on eggshells around your partner, it may be a sign that the relationship is no longer fulfilling for you.
16. Your friends think he’s not for you.
If your friends don’t think your partner is right for you, it may be a sign that they’re seeing something that you’re not. Friends can offer valuable insights and perspectives that you may not have considered, and if multiple people are expressing concern, it’s worth taking their opinions into consideration.
17. You compare your partner to other women or men.
It’s okay to find other people attractive, but not to negatively compare your lover with anyone who catches your eye.
18. You try to find your exes
Ok, you can be friends with your exes, it shows a certain maturity. But if you’re trying to find an ex and flirt with them, then set up a date and end up thinking, “What if…?” your present relationship is doomed.
19. You hope he changes
Hoping that your partner will change is a sign that you’re not happy with the way things currently are in the relationship. While it’s normal to hope for some degree of change and growth in a relationship, it’s important to recognize that you can’t change someone else. A healthy relationship requires both partners to accept each other for who they are, rather than hoping for them to become someone else.
20. You say “I love you” but don’t mean it.
Guilt torments you when you say these words, as if you were lying? You just say them to shut him up and get him to go away? So stop, and spend more time with someone you really love, starting with you.
