Cupid’s Advice:

Deciding how and when to end a relationship is always tough on both parties involved. However,¬†a breakup doesn’t necessarily have to be a terrible thing to go through, especially if your relationship isn’t at is best. Cupid has some tips:

1. Signs of abuse: If your partner is physically or mentally abusive, it’s time to seek help from your family, friends or a professional. Don’t stay in a relationship that endangers your wellbeing. The dynamic between the two of you most likely won’t change – no matter how much your significant other tries to persuade you otherwise.

2. You like to be alone: If you’d rather spend time by yourself or in the company of others, you might need to rethink the status of your relationship. Spending time with your boyfriend/girlfriend shouldn’t feel like a burden. When you stop enjoying being around your honey, it’s more than likely the spark that kept the romance between the two of you alive has gone out.

3. Cheating is an issue: You should want to be in a relationship with someone who wants to be with you and only you. If infidelity has become a problem between you and your partner, it’s time to end things with him/her. Don’t hang on to someone who clearly doesn’t want to commit to you.
