It's not impossible to make a relationship [VIDEO] work, but there are just clear cut signs that he or she's not #Meant for you. These signs aren't always present, but you've got to be concerned if one or two of these come up consistently.

You see, most of the time, we try to ignore these things. Worse, we're not even aware that red flags should be raised when we encounter these signs.

We have to understand that each relationship is unique. We can't stick to a single rule or guideline. If we can, these problems probably won't exist in the first place. We have to take a different approach every time we encounter a rough patch.

What do we do? How do we find out if she or he isn't the right one for us? PopSugar reports about an enlightening piece from Brit Brogaard and YourTango.

A lot of your principles differ

Most of the time, principles dictate how we should establish our goals in life. Principles may even play a role when it comes to the outcome of those goals. If you've been together for a #Long Time now, goals are meant to be broken, changed, and even thrown sometimes. It's not new for couples to undergo this cycle. However, this mustn't turn into a habit.

If you can't meet halfway or if you have trouble in achieving those goals, changes should be made. It shouldn't be forced, and the objective may be focused on personal growth.

You're underappreciated

Ever felt like your efforts were taken for granted? This is also an alarming sign.

If your partner takes advantage of you, be aware that this is a cause for concern. Taking advantage of someone comes in different forms. It might be related to money issues, decision-making, or emotional well-being. Know when to draw the line and make it your responsibility to call out your partner. If it doesn't work, then you know what to do.

Lack of respect

For me, this is primarily the basis or the foundation of a relationship. If respect is lacking or there's nothing left of it, this is proof that there's something wrong. If it's been happening for a long time now, it's time to reconsider the relationship.

Sometimes, emotional and verbal abuse exists in the relationship, but you can't even recognize it. If he doesn't hit you, but he can't control his anger and verbally abuses you, that's already a toxic relationship. When you know that you've done everything and you've given all the chances you can give, it's time to move on.

I'm not saying that these should be treated as an official guideline - be aware, at the very least. After all, it's still up to you to decide. #Stay Or Leave
