LIFESTYLE- A fake relationship can simply be defined as an illusion that you have come to believe in. The illusion of a long lasting relationship which can never be real. The bitter truth is that most of us are in fake relationships, without even knowing it. What most people call a relationship these days is not really a relationship, it is simply an affair.
Because relationships take a lot of effort, commitment and sacrifices. There is a very big difference between someone who is just saying those lovely words to you and someone who actually means those words. There are a lot of things that need to be looked into in order to be sure that someone is in a real relationship.
This is because one can easily manipulate someone and even fool them into believing that they are actually in love with them. Most people try their best to get into relationships just to get what they want.
Here are some obvious signs that you need to watch out and also prevent yourself from being manipulated.
1. The communication sucks
Just like I do say in most of my articles, that communication is the basis and most important thing in every relationship. Good communication is actually a requisite for a healthy relationship.
If you are in a relationship where you rarely communicate with your partner, and you can’t even remember the last time you had a heart-to-heart conversation with your partner, then it’s so glaring that the relationship is not for you.
Especially in a long distance relationship, where you don’t get to see each other every day, communication is the only thing that can keep you going.
2. When there are no remarkable moments
If you are in a relationship where everything always feels normal, there has never been anything special or spectacular about your relationship, then you need to have a rethink.
There has never been any exceptional memories together, there has never been any special or extraordinary feelings that are attached to the time you spent together with your partner. This should not be, falling or being in love is an exceptional and amazing feeling.
Please note that it does not have to be something big or massive, it might just be a conversation between you and your partner which made you feel special and relaxed that you’re in the right relationship.
3. When there is a whole lot of confusion
You should not be confused about your relationship, instead you should be convinced that you are with the right partner. When your relationship has come to a state or a point where you reflect on yourself whether you’re single or taken, then there is no reason for you to still be in that kind of relationship.
Maybe you are beginning to doubt his or her love for you as a result of his new behaviors and characters, then it is an obvious sign that you are in a fake relationship.
