You're not always fully aware of when you want to dump your boyfriend. Sounds ridiculous? It happens a lot more than you might think it does. It's possible that you're in denial, too comfortable, think it's just a rough patch or are nervous about being on your own. You don't want to rush out of a relationship, but you also don't want to stay in one where you're consistently unhappy. If you're experiencing any of the following signs, it may be an indication that you want to dump your boyfriend.
You Stop Communicating How You Feel
Everyone knows communication is the most important thing in a relationship -- when you stop communicating with your boyfriend even though you once did, it's a sign you just don't care about fixing things or making them work anymore. This was one of the major ways I knew a relationship was taking a big tumble -- I no longer wanted to express how I felt because I simply didn't care to.
You Don't Care How He Feels
When your boyfriend is upset, you typically want to make him feel better. Even if you're mad at him and he's upset about it, you're not happy he feels that way although you may not express that to him. When you get to a point where you consistently don't care how he feels regardless of what he's upset about, chances are you want to dump him.
You're Becoming Interested In or Involved With Someone Else
If you find yourself drawn to someone else, it can be the start of a big problem. There's a difference between having a small crush or attraction and finding yourself wanting to interact more with this other person than your own partner. When you're interested in or involved with someone else, either emotionally or physically, it's a sign that your boyfriend may not be the guy you want to be with.
You Can't Stand Being Around Him
Although it's normal to not want to constantly be around your boyfriend, when you have little to no interest in being around him, it's a sign you no longer want to be with him. It's even worse if you haven't been around him and you don't miss him. Although there's nothing fun about heartache, having heartache because you miss someone you love is much better than having heartache because you're in a relationship with someone you're not in love with anymore.
The longer you stay together once you've already been unhappy for awhile, the worse it's likely going to get. Consider maybe you've just reached a point where you're staying for reasons other than because you love your boyfriend. You're going to have moments of unhappiness in a relationship, but when you're unhappy the majority of the time, it's a sign you want to dump your boyfriend, and not have a future together.
