Things are generally a lot easier to get into than out of. Most people, at some time in their lives, find themselves in a relationship that is basically over. But is it so bad that it warrants the upheaval of a breakup?

Take action:
If the following signs are there, it might be time to bail out: your partner starts to go out constantly with new friends that you don’t know; she/he starts talking about the future in ways that obviously don't include you; you find yourself constantly apologising for things which are not your fault, just to keep the peace; the two of you are no longer able to do nothing together; your partner confides in other people rather than in you; you don’t really respond on a sexual level to your partner, although you find other people sexually attractive; the word ‘space’ starts creeping into your conversations – no couple can do everything together, but wanting space all the time means it's time to pack those bags.
