This one’s difficult, to differentiate a true relationship from one that’s fake. What really is a fake relationship? It’s an illusion that you have come to believe, an illusion of a long-lasting relationship. Several folks are in fake relationships, while not even knowing it. What you may be having is really an affair, real relationships take lots of effort, no doubts there, however, they’re perpetually better than fake ones in the long run. Here are the red flags that you simply need to keep a watch out for and stop yourself from being fooled.
1. The communication sucks
Good communication should be a requisite for a healthy relationship, if you’re in a relationship where you two barely communicate, you can’t recall the last time you had a heart to heart together with your partner, you simply text one another every once in a while, it’s simply on and off, you’re unaware of what’s occurring within the other person’s life and it usually seems like you don’t know the other person; then you’re not really in a relationship. You have formed a true bond only when you are feeling connected together with your partner; showing emotion, physically and mentally.
2. An excessive amount of PDA
This may come as a surprise – you two are basically nibbling on one another, isn’t that an honest thing? No, it isn’t. This is often indicative of over-compensatory and ostentatious behavior. You’re making an attempt to put on a show, a make-believe. It’s the simplest way of maintaining the illusion that you guys have created, to deceive yourself and the others around you. You may be in a very fake relationship and still manage to listen to things like; ‘What an ideal couple you guys are’, ‘You make us want to have a relationship’ etc. If you guys aren’t this crazy regarding one another in private but can’t keep your hands off one another as soon as you’ve got company, then you have got a couple of things to ask.
3. There aren’t any exceptional moments
The relationship simply feels ‘normal’, nothing special. You guys don’t have any exceptional reminiscences together, there are not any extraordinary feelings connected to the time you guys spend with each other. This shouldn’t be the case, love is an exceptional feeling and if it feels anything but wonderful, you’re not very really in love at all.
4. There’s lots of confusion
Initially, we all are to a small degree hazy, unsure what to feel or if it’s okay to feel this way, unsure of your partner’s feelings, spending hours considering if he loves me, he loves me not; however when you have spent notable time together with your partner and you can’t really offer substance to how you are feeling or if your partner actually loves you and you’re not attempting to do anything concerning this disarray of feelings and still profess love then this is a classic sign of a fake relationship.
5. Serious discussions are off-limits
This is an extension of unhealthy communication, a couple has silly conversations as well as serious discussions. You’re wrong to assume that an ideal relationship is one with no arguments and heated discussions, a cheerful couple talks about things that matter and it doesn’t have an effect on their love for each other. If you guys avoid having important conversations, mention the superficial things just like the weather, then your relationship is too good to be true. If you actually care about things, then there is no way you can go without arguments every now and then.
6. There’s a power struggle
Letting go of your egos is important for a sustainable relationship. You’re in a relationship where somebody continuously must be right, it doesn’t matter how it affects your relationship, all that matters is being right! This suggests that there’s an absence of love within the relationship, because after you are in love you’re more versatile, more involved regarding your partner’s feelings, being right doesn’t necessarily matter.
7. There’s sexual chemistry, but no genuine friendship
You guys are too hot for each other in the bed, however once it involves talking and communication you guys are uninformed or simply not interested. The only approach you guys feel in sync is by means of physical contact, this merely suggests that you’re in a carnal relationship, once the infatuation dies, thus will the relationship. This is a really common, characteristic sign of a relationship being transactional.
8. You don’t recognize each other’s family and friends
A person who is serious about you desires to create you a part of his life, will continually introduce you to his friends and family. If it’s been a short while and you still haven’t met each other’s family and it doesn’t seem to hassle one or both of you, this suggests the person doesn’t wish to get ‘too involved’ and has set limits to how far the connection will go.
