Bad Relationships - A Few Signs to Remember

There can be many signs that good relationships may be turning into bad relationships.

Some relationships may be able to be nipped in the bud and turn the relationship around.

And others you may not be able to do nothing about it, and in this case it may be time to end the relationship.

When entering into any relationship it is almost impossible to know how that relationship is going to play out.

But try to pay attention to things in the beginning. Usually when you see a few red flags in the beginning, they have a way of resurfacing later.

Usually everything starts out rosy in the beginning and it is only when relationships develop over time that you realize yours is showing all the signs of things going bad. Here's a few signs of a bad relationship.

Sign 1

If your partner is avoiding you at every opportunity this may be one of the first signs of a relationship going downhill. Your partner could be doing avoiding you for many reasons with one of them being guilt if they are having an affair.

Avoidance could include making excuses to go out alone whenever possible, failing to communicate with you where once this was good or just being coy and withdrawn around you when at home.

Sign 2

Should your partner become demanding or controlling then you need to nip it in the bud before it blossoms. Controlling relationships never work and it will be harder to get out of the relationship the longer you stay in it.

Sign 3

If you find your partner's attitude has changed and is continually changing, take notice. Maybe they're becoming distressed or angry at the least little thing you do. Or maybe there is something going on with him or her.

Instead of discussing things with you, it just may an excuse for blowing a fuse. This can be the beginning signs of an abusive relationship and it may be time to discuss it.

The abuser often blames the problem on the abused. Remember, it takes two to make a relationship work.
