Refinery29Who hasn't been in a relationship way longer than they should have? Because, well, let's face it, relationships aren't always black and white - and it's usually the gray that makes things complicated. "Should I stay or should I go? That is often the big question," says Wendy Walsh, PhD, adjunct professor of psychology at California State University, Channel Islands and author of the 30-Day Love Detox. "Not only are people sometimes unaware that issues could be signs that things won't work in the long-term, they can also put too much weight on things that should not lead to a breakup, too." The other big issue, says Walsh, is that as much as you have to look at how your lover treats you, your own actions may dictate more about your relationship than you think.
