By April Littleton

According to UsMagazine, Chris Brown and Rihanna have split up once again. Brown confirmed the breakup during an interview with the Australian radio station The Kyle and Jackie Show. He stated, “The love’s certainly not gone, but personal and professional commitments make the relationship too difficult right now. I’m always gonna love that person. I can’t be focused on wife-ing someone that young. I need to be the best Chris Brown I can be.” The couple may have ended things for now, but there still may be hope for the lovebirds in the future. A source close to Rihanna said, “Of course tomorrow they could be all over each again, but for now she’s done and just living her life and touring. It’s how it always is.”

How do you know when to call it quits in a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

It can be hard to tell if a couple is just going through a momentary setback in their relationship, or if they’re going through the early stages of a breakup. How can you tell if the chemistry between you and your partner has fizzled out for good? Cupid has some tips:

1. Commitment: When one or both persons give up in the relationship, it will be hard to work toward reconciliation. Some people care enough about each other and their commitment to work through trying times, while others give up at the first sign of struggle. If you and/or your partner aren’t working hard to hold things together – it’s time to call it quits.

2. The bad outweighs the good: If you spend the majority of your time fighting with your beau, avoiding him or thinking about all of the negative traits you don’t like about him — it may be time to move on. Your relationship should make you happy. If you feel your time together never ends on a positive note, it’s time to end it for good.

3. Someone else has your attention (or his): There’s no point in prolonging the inevitable if either you or your significant other has found someone new. If you find yourself wondering about a new guy or notice your man spending time with another woman, then it’s time to let each other off the hook.
