How do you determine if your relationship is toxic?

Cupid’s Advice:

It was long speculated that Brad Womack would not be able to fully open up his heart to a woman after his first stint on The Bachelor ended in heartbreak.  Is Womack simply toxic in a relationship?  Cupid has a few tell-tale signs for a toxic relationship:

1. You can’t be yourself: If you find yourself skirting around your partner at times and find it difficult to be yourself, the relationship is probably toxic.  Your mate should understand you better than anyone, so what’s the point of being a part of the couple when you can’t be fully happy?

2. You do things you normally wouldn’t: Chances are that your relationship is toxic if you find yourself partaking in activities you used to be against just because your partner suggested it.  It’s important to retain your morals and values when you enter into a new relationship.

3. You fight all the time: Arguing periodically is normal in a relationship, but if you find that all you do is right and you can’t point to anything positive in your relationship, it may be time to get out.
