A couple's relationship may pass through various stages, starting with a beautiful romantic period. If mutual understanding and respect are established between the partners, if there's tolerance to each other's flaws, then this relationship is considered to be healthy. But when controlling, critical, and selfish behavior appears and it becomes unsafe to be together, then this indicates that a relationship is toxic.

How do you recognize the beginning of negativity?

There are seemingly harmless habits that signify that your relationship is doing emotional harm and the situation requires fixing.

1. Shifting the blame

Your partner is trying to involve you into his or her emotional problems, blaming you for them. Along with this, your beloved isn't solving or changing anything.

2. Buying love

Your partner is trying to buy your affection with expensive gifts and he's doing it publicly to create an image of the perfect couple for people to believe. But you can already feel the notes of insincerity.

3. Absence of arguments

Two separate people invariably have different views on things, events. They may recount them, discuss. But if there are no arguments, then it can be assumed that the partners aren't entirely honest with each other.

4. The need to complete each other

Self-sufficient people are valuable because they are whole. When there's a necessity to be "completed" by someone, it points to a dependency of one person on another – their opinion and presence in life.

5. Jealousy

Going through your phone and social media accounts points to the fact that you are not trusted by your partner and it can escalate into a fight out of the blue.
