Six ways to know when it's time to stop dating someone
1. You don't get butterflies when they message you
If you don't get a flicker of excitement when they get in touch with you, it's time to give up. Hanging on for the butterflies to start fluttering around is a massive waste of time, because, if you're waiting, they'll never arrive.
2. You don't have a problem with flaking out on plans (and you don't mind if they do)
If you've got a genuine interest in someone, you will be very keen to see them, so if you find yourself breathing a sigh of relief when they cancel on you because you'd rather be eating cake and watching Westworld, you've got a problem and should call it off.
3. You haven't made any future plans
We're not talking marriage or where to send your kids to school, we're talking thinking about the next few weeks ahead. If you don't really care whether they'll be in your life in the next week or month, you might as well cut your losses and keep looking for someone who makes your heart sing.
4. You keep asking your friends if they think you should keep seeing them
If you're into them, you'll know it. If you're agonizing over it and asking your friends for advice, it generally means you don't really want to pursue a relationship.
5. If you're faking something
Whether it's laughing at their jokes, or having a wild time in bed, if there's any part of the relationship where you're faking it, it's time to knock it on the head. Not only is this no fun for you, it's also not fair on them.
6. It all feels like a bit of an effort
The early stages of a relationship should be those heady, wonderful moments where all you can think about is that wonderful person. If seeing them feels stressful or difficult, or you just can't be arsed, then you need to call it quits.
