Re: When is it time to end a realtionship?

Lack of respect and compatibility.

@unbe, you describe this woman as a 36-year-old unmotivated pot smoker. She treats your relationship as a companionship of convenience. This type of person isn't looking for more than that. There is nothing wrong with it, unless you are looking for a life partner. She is clearly not qualified at this time. If you do want more than what she is giving, ask for it or move on. Either way, I suspect that will make an end it of it.

Re: When is it time to end a realtionship?

The fact that you asked this question suggests that you have sensed some changes. One question to consider is has the changes resulted from a change in your behavior. Sometimes unintentionally due to work or a new responsibility. However, you have to be clear with your significant other. If there are no changes in your behavior, be proactive and ask your wife what's wrong so you can determine how to address it or if you want to address it.

In any event, she has been pulling back over the past month saying its too stressful living in two homes (she stays by me for the weekend mostly) and she cant do things she needs to do. She uses updating her resume and cleaning her home (sher lives with her dad) as examples.

Over the past week I have noticed a change, even more distance. She hasn't answered the phone when I called a few times and hasn't responded to text messages. I did see her for dinner the other night and she acted completely normal, actually gave me things of hers to leave at my house. Since then radio silence, going on 36 hours now.

Are these signs she is looking for me to end it?


She's definitely trying to slip out the side door. Just cut off all contact. You don't even need to really break up with her. Change your locks. Take her stuff back to her dads and leave it on the porch.

Some people are not strong enough to end it but still want it over. What are the signs that type of person would give you?
One of the things my son's ex said to him... "I no longer feel like we're best friends".... she broke up a couple weeks later.. and she was texting his friend sometimes when they were out.. he should have dumped her 1st.. but waited for her to do it..
