Cupid’s Advice:

The end of a relationship is a bittersweet feeling, to say the least. You go back and forth with yourself wondering if the right decision will be/was made (most of the time it was). The signs are always there and it is up to you to pay close attention. Cupid has some advice for you to see the signs:

1. Tones and attitudes: Do not ignore the tension in the room that is thick enough you could cut it with a knife. If you begin to notice more aggression between you and your partner, address it. If the problem repeatedly continues, consider calling it quits.

2. No evolving: As a couple, you both should grow individually and together. Be able to recognize and commend your partner’s steps of growth. Remember, it is about progression. If one is constantly gaining and the other is constantly losing, consider calling it quits.

3. Disappearing emotions: There should always be some sort of heartfelt emotion involved in your relationship. A glance at your love gives you butterflies, or maybe even you see stars — whatever the feeling, it should remain. Let your significant other know of the issues you are having. If the butterflies are stuck as caterpillars or the stars are not glowing, consider calling it quits.
