Taking break relationship dating other people
Under no circumstances should you accept someone lying to you just to appease them or keep them around.This is a major sign something sketchy is going on, and this person is simply stringing you along.He told me he deleted his social media accounts because they were "making him depressed," but he then made new profiles on each outlet, blocked me on them and began actively using them.This should have been an immediate red flag to me, but as I began to succumb to wishful thinking, his excuses for why he made the accounts made sense to me at the time.If they can't take 20 seconds to text you and tell you they won't be able to contact you that evening or cancel a date, they don't care and they don't deserve your loyalty and trust.This last one is something I didn't realize until after the whole experience was done and over."I think we should take a break..."We will all experience this at least once in our strategic endeavors to find "the one." Whether it is caused from frequent arguments, jealousy or one-sided feeling, "taking a break" is something we are all confronted with at one point or another.If you are on the receiving end of this shitty arrangement, one of the first thoughts that will come to your mind is that this break is just a way for your partner to not deal with the inevitable breakup they truly want.
In my case, my ex began to go out drinking every night with co-workers, dabbling in illegal behaviors and retracting from our normal friend group in order to become close with some pretty destructive and negative people.Do not make excuses for this person if you're afraid standing up for yourself will push them away.This break is as much about you as it is for them and you need to be able to establish a sense of independence and reconsider your standards.I had multiple experiences with this when my partner of two years decided he wanted to take a break to "find himself" and work out his own issues at the time.Lo and behold, I began to notice his words and his actions didn't necessarily match up in the already confusing situation.
It also promotes healthy communication that can be taken back into the relationship when the break is over.
