Breaking up with your boyfriend is never easy. Even if you know that your relationship is ending, it can be difficult to move forward and end things for good. Do you stay in the relationship because you don’t want to hurt his feelings? Do you break up with him and risk hurting him even more?
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether or not to break up with your significant other—and it’s okay if you’re not sure about staying together. If you recognize these signs that breaking up with your boyfriend might be the right thing for both of you, take this quiz and discover what’s best for both of you.
Discover if breaking up is the right decision for you.
First, you should ask yourself if you’re in the right relationship in the first place. If you’re not with the right person, you might have trouble staying committed to staying together. You might know that you should break up with him even if none of the signs that follow apply to your specific relationship.
He’s dishonest and doesn’t treat you well.
Some people are better off ending a relationship sooner rather than later. If your boyfriend is dishonest and treats you badly, ending the relationship now is best for both of you. If you stay together, he will probably only continue to treat you worse and worse.
If he’s dishonest, there’s also a chance he will cheat on you, which is a definite relationship killer. If he seems like he doesn’t care about your feelings or wants to treat you poorly, break up with him before he has a chance to do more damage.
You’ve grown apart and don’t have much in common.
If you’ve grown apart—and you don’t have much in common—you may want to consider ending the relationship. If your boyfriend doesn’t have the same interests as you or doesn’t share your passions, it might be best to move on. If you don’t have much in common with him, you might be happier in the long run if you break up.
He constantly puts you down and makes you feel bad about yourself.
If your boyfriend makes you feel bad about yourself or constantly puts you down, you might be better off without him. If you don’t have a healthy relationship, it’s best to end it now before things get even worse. Constant put-downs, especially if they seem to be about your personality or who you are as a person, are signs that your relationship is unhealthy.
You feel like he doesn’t respect your boundaries.
If your boyfriend doesn’t respect your boundaries, it’s probably time to break up with him. What are boundaries? Boundaries are the things that make you you. They are a list of what you’re okay with and what you’re not okay with within a relationship. If he doesn’t respect your boundaries, it may be a sign that he’s not the right guy for you.
Break up with him!
If you’ve gone through all the signs above and you’re sure that you should break up with your boyfriend, go ahead and end things. Don’t feel bad about ending the relationship—it’s okay to break up with someone if you know it’s not working.
Break up with him and tell him that you’re not happy in the relationship and you want to end things for good. You don’t need to provide a reason for ending the relationship if you don’t want to.
The important thing is that you’re happy, and you know that ending the relationship is the right thing to do.
