#4 Can’t Handle Distance

It is not uncommon for someone to have a job that takes them far away at times. Some people are not cut out for a relationship like this but will make the mistake of trying to stick with it anyway. It may seem brutal to break it off because you can’t handle the distance, but in the end you will only be saving each other from years of misery.

#5 No Romance

Sure, feeling like you’re in a chick flick can be pretty cheesy, but sometimes it’s those cheesy little moments that really show your partner that you care.

#6 Not Handling Embarrassment

A lot of people will accept being with someone that makes them feel embarrassed, or worse, someone that is embarrassed to be seen with them. Don’t sell yourself short just because you’re afraid of being alone. You owe them and yourself the respect to get out.

#7 Not Compromising
