A relationship is quite an intimate thing and no one knows how things truly are except the two of you. Everyone around you may think your couple is enviable and amazing, but if deep down you feel like something's wrong, perhaps you have a subtle issue that needs to be resolved before it's too late!

To leave or not to leave: that is the question
We give you a list of red flags pointing to inside problems that may ultimately lead to a break-up. Analyze them carefully and ask yourself whether you and your partner have something like that in your relationship.
1. Trust issues

You should see a warning sign even in little lies your partner tells or in your urge to lie. Even if it's a white lie and you only mean well.
If your partner doesn't aspire to discuss your future together or even avoids such conversations, then it might be a good reason for you to give it some thought, as it makes you less sure that this relationship is worthwhile.
3. Relationship built on needs

When the only reason you're together is because of fair exchange – the kind of connection between you and your partner where you stay together only to accommodate each other's needs – it devalues your interaction.
4. Personal gain
You find lots of advantages in living together: you get a lift to work, he takes you shopping, it's convenient to go on holidays together. It's not love, it's just a mutually beneficial arrangement.
5. Friends first
When your partner is not your top priority but a few steps lower, it's a sure sign that you're bored together.
6. Frequent fights

You can't go a day without fighting or being displeased with each other? Maybe you should look for the reason why you are irritated by the way he talks, moves, eats. It wasn't like this before.
7. Materialistic discrepancies

When one of the partners feels like going on a mountain hike and another wants to go check out new furniture, there is evidently a divergence of interests. If there is no chance of reaching a compromise, perhaps you should consider having a serious conversation about the future.

When you think about your future as a couple, tune in to your heart and your gut feeling. They won't deceive you, but will definitely help you tell a habit from real love. The sooner you realize it, the faster you'll end a potentially pointless relationship and find the partner of your dreams.
