However, what is your fault is when you do know and do nothing about it. So for all you women out there who have a feeling it's going nowhere and need some proof to hit it home, take a look at these 25 signs your relationship is on a one way street to nowhere.
You've told him a million times you wear contact lense or what your parents' names are, and he NEVER remembers.
I know this all sounds like justification, but he really has made improvements in the past year.
Before me, he was in two longer-term relationships, and he said that he’s never had what we have now, that he’s never even considered marriage and kids with anyone else before and that I’m not just his girlfriend, I’m his best friend.
We get the 'bros before hoes' BS but if he's always going to meet them and doesn't ever introduce you, it's beyond not OK.
He should want to show you off to his friends as soon as possible (you ARE amazing after all) so if he hasn't, we'd say that's a massive red warning sign. If you're always the one making plans and he can never be bothered, ditch him. A guy who's invested in the relationship will make the effort and not just rely on you to do all the work, all the damn time.
But shouldn’t we talk about that early on, in order to know we are on the same page? Now that you’ve been privy to this woman’s pain, insecurity, fear and longing, would YOU want to date her?
Being in a dead end relationship isn't always your fault.
When you love, or have loved, someone, it can be incredibly difficult to accept that maybe it's not what's right for you or what you want anymore.
He should have enough respect and genuine interest for you to remember simple details about your life. If he isn't interested enough to remember now, maybe it's time you forgot him.
If your idea of planning for the future together is deciding whether to defrost chicken or beef for tomorrow's meal, girl, forecast is looking frosty.
He’s been working on it for more than 2 years so I don’t know if that’s also a factor in why he’s reluctant to move forward.
