6 Signs You’re in a Toxic Relationship

When it comes to love, it can be difficult to tell good from bad, positive from negative and healthy from toxic. People can be immensely talented in the art of deception as well as denial. You think you know someone well and then you end up being wrong.

Here are some warning signs to tell if your relationship is toxic to your life and you should break it off.



1. You’re hiding your relationship from the public



I’m not talking about not telling mama and baba because you’re waiting for the relationship to get serious. I’m talking about hiding it from everyone. There’s no reason why you should hide your admiration for someone from the public. If you have to hide your relationship to be happy, then you are fooling no one but yourself. This should raise a big question in your relationship if it’s happening.



2. You delete texts or messages



I once read somewhere, “Cheating doesn’t mean you have to kiss, meet or have sex with someone else… Once you find yourself deleting messages so your partner will not see them, then you already are there”. No one is forcing you to be with your partner; if you can’t give them your all, then break it off. If your partner did this and you don’t think it’s a big deal, think again, you are badly mistaken.



3. You fight more than you love



You shouldn’t spend more time fighting than cuddling, going on dates and having lovey-dovey conversations. If you are fighting way more than usual, then that can be a sign of lack of compatibility.

This one is spotted more deeply into the relationship when one partner can’t keep tolerating something he/she doesn’t usually put up with but did just in the beginning of the relationship. That’s why the best thing you can do for yourself and for your partner is to be you 100% from day one. Now, if your partner is an old-fashioned, typical Egyptian man who fights over your guy friends, I don’t understand why you dated him in the first place.



4. You feel more lust than love



You miss the physical aspects of the relationship more than you miss your conversations together. Does that sound familiar? It shouldn’t be like that. Sure, the physical is part of the relationship, but it shouldn’t be 100%. Don’t confuse your lust for love.



5. Only one party seems to be making most of the sacrifices



Relationships are about making sacrifices on both ends. If only one person is making all the sacrifices, don’t be scared to think the truth: that one side of the relationship doesn’t care as much as the other.



6. There is a lack of trust



I ended with this one because this is possibly the most important thing in a relationship. It’s simple: No trust equals no relationship. You shouldn’t be going through your partner’s phone to make sure he or she isn’t hiding anything. Looking after your partner in this manner is the most toxic habit and this type of relationship will not last. Trust in a relationship can make it or break it.
