When would you rather know you're dating someone who isn't a good match for you? Is it already a month? Or two years later, when you're both co-parenting multiple house plants and sharing an apartment? Almost everyone would choose the first option. Dating can be exhausting enough at times. Anyone might be disappointed when they discover they are incompatible with someone after months or years of commitment. It's understandable that people don't see indicators of mismatch right away. Who wants to dwell on a person's flaws when they're attracted to them? Especially when there are more intriguing characteristics to discuss, such as a person's zodiac sign or a common love of a local folk band. However, a relationship's long-term success isn't determined by first-date butterflies. Compatibility is defined by a person's larger characteristics, such as values, morality, aspirations, and desires. So, if you're looking for a long-term companion, be on the lookout for certain incompatibilities that can be detected early in a relationship.
1. You're both stubborn.
One stubborn person in a relationship can make it work. When there are two stubborn persons in a relationship, It's a matter of personalities clashing. Stubborn people, on the other hand, tend to stick to their guns no matter what - these are the ones that refuse to apologize or accept their mistakes. Can you image what would happen if two obstinate persons got into an argument? You'd both stand firm and, more than likely, end things since you both refuse to accept any blame. (Not to mention, as we'll see in a moment, recurrent bickering is also a symptom of incompatibility.) Start small if you wish to change your stubborn ways. Consider your words before you speak, and constantly put yourself in your partner's position to understand his or her point of view.
2. You don't communicate
Has there been a breakdown in communication? You've run out of things to say to each other. Instead of talking on the phone or sitting down face to face, you text. You and your partner have settled into a pattern that resembles that of a ninety-year-old couple. While some communication breakdown is acceptable and anticipated, excessive communication breakdown can be harmful to your relationship. Your relationship is stuck if you and your partner aren't communicating adequately. If you want to break free from your rut, you'll need to pursue new interests or take on new tasks together. If you stick to a monotonous schedule for too long, your relationship will become stale and impossible to save.
3. Your companion spends a lot of time with his or her Friends
If your partner is devoting more time and energy to someone or something other than you, it could be an indication that they are no longer interested in your relationship. Both parties must devote time to the project. Your relationship may be doomed if your partner doesn't make time for you and often prioritizes friends or interests before you. You must have your partner set aside time for you on a regular basis if you want to restore your relationship (preferably every day). When you're first trying to tackle a problem, having a plan demonstrates that you're serious about solving it. If your companion isn't interested, it's time to get on the road. You are more valuable.
4. Your relationship looks more like a battle field than a love affair
Your discussion appears to have devolved into nothing more than a squabble. You never agree on anything, and you frequently go to bed upset with each other. It's clear that your communication abilities are atrocious. You undoubtedly tried to work things out and be more understanding already, but it didn't work out. You've simply kept fighting and bickering over this and that, as if it'll never end. You are correct; it is unlikely to happen since you are incompatible. You are mismatched if you spend more time fighting than being on good terms and joyful. You have diametrically opposed perspectives on what is wrong and what is right. Because your perspectives on life and relationships are so dissimilar, you haven't been able to work things out.
When jealousy is kept in check, it doesn't have to be a terrible thing. However, it can sometimes go too far and entirely suffocate you. Two people who are very jealous of each other will only hold each other back, and it can quickly become poisonous. Your relationship will not be able to last very long if it is not built on trust. One or both partners in the relationship will eventually become tired from the phone continually ringing, someone monitoring their movements, and regulating their every move. It's not only a matter of incompatibility; it's also harmful to a person's physical and emotional wellbeing.
6. Your differences are not respected.
They don't respect you if they make you feel guilty for being different from them. While you may feel fine about giving up a hobby or not minding their snide remarks, it will gradually wear you down. Respect is, after all, a crucial component of every long-term partnership.
While some of these indications can be worked on in long-term relationships, they should be avoided if you're on the market or seeing someone new. In the long term, it's best to find someone with whom you're compatible rather than attempting to reconcile major differences between you. A suitable partnership also feels better in general. I'm delighted I came across one, and I hope you do as well.
