Sometimes relationships end. There are times it’s because one person has cheated and other times, people simply just fall out of love. And then there are times when two people are simply no longer compatible or the relationship has just run its course. When that happens it’s a little hard to tell whether it’s really high time to let go or it’s just a rough patch.

Well, if you’re not too sure, here are some signs that might indicate you need to leave the relationship you’re in where it belongs, which is the past:

There are too many lies involved – This is a serious indication that it’s time to move on and move away from the relationship you’re in because no relationship should be based on lies or be filled with lies for that matter.

You fight over everything – Hold up! Isn’t it normal for couples to fight? Yes, it is but not over every little thing. Fighting over everything indicates that there is something seriously wrong with the relationship. It’s time to stop and re-evaluate the fact that you’re looking for things to fight about and whether or not it’s healthy to do so.

You do things to avoid each other – All couples should want to spend as much time as they can with each other and if you’re staying back late at the office just to avoid what’s waiting at home then this a big sign that it’s time to break up. Something is not right because you’d rather be away from your partner than be with them.

You’re interested in other people – If some signs are not as clear then this one should be the clearest of all. If you’re really in love with your partner and want to be with them, you wouldn’t care to impress or be impressed by others.

You don’t want to have sex – All relationship go through phases where you want to jump each other’s bones but eventually things do simmer down to maybe 3-4 times a week instead of doing it everyday. But if you’re coming up with all and any excuse to NOT be intimate with your partner then the relationship has probably fizzled out.
