This one thing in Relationship we fail to understand that cheating is often considered one of the worst things that can happen in a relationship – and for good reason. Infidelity, whether it’s physical (hooking up) or emotional (having an intense emotional connection with another person that doesn’t involve hooking up), is the ultimate betrayal to many people.
That being said, though, there actually might be some other bad things that can happen in a relationship that are even worse. Below are 7 slow relationship killers which can cause bitter resentment and heartbreak.
Not saying please and thank you is not good for a health relationship. People need to feel appreciated. If they feel appreciated, then their frame of mind is better and everything in general is better. You might be married or unmarried, but that doesn’t mean you
can’t be appreciative of what your significant other does for you – and vice versa. You don’t need to make a big show of it… simply saying “thank you” when they do something is enough.
Related to cheating but not. Its really bad when you can’t trust the other person. This is so true and so important. Trust is one of the biggest parts of any relationship. If you don’t trust bae or bae doesn’t trust you, it’s never going to work long-term.
Always Being On Your Phone
You can’t just hang out with bae and both stare at your phones the whole time. That’s weird and not okay.
Acting Condescending Towards Each Other
Being treated in a condescending way is horrible. Remember that you have to respect your partner and they have to respect you. Don’t constantly speak down to each other. You’re teammates.
Name-Calling When Fighting
This is so important, and once you’ve done it, you’ve set a deadly precedent you can’t really come back from. Names calling shows a lack of respect. The intent is solely to hurt your partner. It’s a verbal expression of spite. Words hurt, and once something really nasty has been said, you can’t take it back. Don’t say it if it’s really bad.
Lack of Communication
95% of the problem in relationships could be fixed if people just took the time to clearly convey how they’re feeling. The root of basically every relationship problem ever. If you can’t be open and honest with your partner, then you can’t be together.
Lying About Small Things
Even if it’s just a lot of small things it really does add up, it leaves you thinking “What else would they lie about?”. Yup, exactly. Again, if you can’t be open and honest with each other, it will never work.
