There comes a time in every relationship that is not meant for you where you can feel it in your bones that it’s not going to work out. It’s almost like a switch – you wake up and you just know that it’s best to call quits. You don’t want to try to work things out anymore, call them or communicate with them in any way and it almost feels like their absence in your life won’t make much of a difference.
A woman named Prakriti took to social media to ask people when they sensed that their relationship was not going to work out. She asked for signs, and boy did people deliver!
Everyone’s talking about their first kiss, but I’m curious about the first time you sensed that your relationship wasn’t going to work out. What was the sign?

There were some who highlighted that calling or texting them feels like a duty you no longer want to do. Others said that if the romance fizzles out and there’s no underlying friendship, then the relationship isn’t really it. Some people pointed out other dealbreakers like lying and cheating. A few just said that the vibe didn’t match anymore.
Have a look at some of the answers here:
When the call backs feel like duty.

We were too much of a romantic couple, and too less as friends. In the 1st relationship experiences keep you going till a point, after that there’s something else that’s needed to sustain it

when we hung out with my best friend & her boyfriend, we realized that our bond/banter & love for each other didn’t match even half of theirs and it was strange because both of us felt the exact same because that’s the most basic thing a relationship is supposed to have

When I realised he’s a whole different person in front of me and his best friends. His switched personality was a big turn off.

1. It’s when you don’t feel like solving simple fights in a relationship.
2. When minor issues which didn’t even matter before starts appearing like thorns.

Caught her lying.
Hiding things from me.
I shrugged it off at the time trusting her words +giving her benefit of doubt. But turned out I was completely wrong.

When you start losing interest in making things work and buy feels ok to see them go south
