Many relationships today has one participant and a tag along. Most partners are only “couple” in name. Some of the participant, are unaware of how alone they are in their relationships.
Here are a few signs that you just might be dating yourself.
Definition of Relationship
Before you start building with a person, you have to know what kind of relationship you’re in with them. For example, are you just sex partners, friends with benefits, just friends, or committed lovers? You have to know who you are and what you mean to a person, before you start making demands or assumptions of them. Verbal definition, precisely. Making sacrifices in an undefined relationship is risky.
Unrequited/ Uneven Participation.
At times, you tend to always be the one making plans to go on dates, you’re always the one calling. Checking in on them. You’re always the initiator of every decision or plan for the progress of the relationship. Your partner doesn’t meet you halfway in anyway. Chances are you are alone in that relationship.
When all your partners concern is their self. It is of the presumption that you don’t matter to them and also, your opinion of their characters holds no water. They don’t care about your feelings, your hobbies, your likes and dislikes. They are not willing to change or compromise for the progress of what you share. You’re in that alone.
Lack of Commitment
It is not obligatory that every relationship will lead to marriage. But a relationship needs a level of commitment from both parties to grow. When your partner cancels dates and procrastinate plans that will include the two of you spending time together, it is a sign that they are not committed to you.
If you partner cheats on you, there’s no excuse for it. It shows they undervalue you and your feelings and, also don’t feel committed on indebted to you.
If you experience any of these in your relationship, there are chances that you just might be dating yourself.
