Cupid’s Advice:

1. You’ve been having the same arguments repeatedly: If you and your boo are continuously arguing over the same topics, it may be time to clear your head, and find out if these arguments are even worth having. If you’re always entangled in the same issue, you probably don’t even know where your feelings and/or opinions stand anymore, so you definitely benefit from some “me time”. That way, you can step back into the relationship with a reinvigorated sense of self, and determine whether or not your love is worth fighting for.

2. You never have time for the rest of your loved ones: If your partner is constantly nagging and guilt-tripping you into seeing them, and you’re sick of not spending time with anyone but them, you may need to give them a reality check by asking to not spend time together for a while. It’s unhealthy to not spend quality time with family and friends, especially when the cause is that you’re being choked to death by your significant other. If you’re losing the rest of your life over a relationship, re-examine your priorities.

3. Your lover never has time for YOU: We are all all-too-familiar with the agonizing pain of  staring at a phone screen with an unanswered text, or going two weeks without going on a date with your partner. If you feel you’re not getting the time with them that you deserve, you may want to take a break to see what it’s like to not expect anything from them. This way, you may either realize that you both just have busy schedules you need to manage, or that you don’t matter to them much after all. Either way, only some time to yourself will provide you with the clarity you need.
