If a woman is in love, it can seem that she’d give her all in a relationship. But there’s a limit to everything and when certain boundaries get crossed, she’ll leave even that ultimate dream man without thinking twice.
Bright Sight lists 10 mistakes that men make that can quickly make a relationship take a turn for the worse.
He doesn’t want to spice things up.
It’s not that a woman wants her romantic relationship to be a rollercoaster ride, though, it’s vital to leave some room for new things. If a man insists on going to the same restaurant every day or wants to travel to the same place every vacation because he doesn’t want to step out of his comfort zone, his lover will definitely soon get bored.
He accuses you of having “sky high” expectations.
When a woman is thinking about breaking up with her beloved, most likely by this time she had made many attempts to save this relationship. But if a partner refuses to discuss things that worry her and, at the same time, goes on to complain about her unrealistic demands, she’ll be left with no doubts that it’s time to break things off.
He cancels on you to hang out with friends.
There isn’t much to enjoy when a boyfriend suddenly leaves you alone on a weekend, stays out late — ignoring your calls, or disrupts your schedule in any other way. If he’s gotten used to canceling your dates and, instead, spends time with his buddies, a woman will start to understand that this is a signal that she is of little importance in his life — it won’t be too long before she walks away forever.
He acts secretive.
“If he’s acting like he has something to hide, he’s definitely cheating.” Even if this is not the case, it’s what will come to mind if a partner avoids texting when he’s near you, talks in vague details about his plans, or gets defensive when asked about where he’s been. A lack of honesty and openness will make any woman want to look for another, more stable relationship.
He’s never there when you need him.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that a man is out of town or hanging out with friends — he can be sitting in front of his girlfriend but still not be present when she wants to talk about things that matter to her or bother her. When a partner only pretends to be listening, a woman can feel that and she’ll understand that she’s being taken for granted. Who wants a relationship like that?
He makes you feel like his mother.
A man-child doesn’t follow through with plans, never wants to have adult conversations, and blames his partner for being a nag. In this type of relationship, any woman will soon get tired of trying to take the responsibility off of his shoulders and making excuses for him and will want to start looking for a grown man.
He ignores your opinions.
When there is a need to make decisions that affect both people in the relationship, a woman expects that her opinion will be taken into account. If a man thinks that her wants and needs don’t count and only focuses on himself, she’ll take it as a red flag that he doesn’t want her to be happy and doesn’t respect her.
He puts his career first.
It’s alright when a person has big dreams to achieve, but when you’re in a relationship, even despite your busy schedule, it’s important to set aside some time to focus on your partner and show them that they are a priority for you. If a man is always too busy to spend time with his lover, she’ll want to leave him for good.
He compares you to other women.
It can be one of his ex’s, his colleague, or his mother. In any case, a constant comparison of a girlfriend to other women is a very dangerous mistake that can instantly destroy a relationship. It makes a woman feel terrible, negatively affects her self-esteem, and, most likely, will end up in a breakup.
He makes you wonder if he even cares.
Appreciation is important for a healthy relationship and, by the way, it means appreciating a partner even for the little things they do. If, instead of showing how important his woman is to him, a man takes her for granted and doesn’t want to put any effort into the relationship, his lover will never feel comfortable around him.
