3 Signs That It’s Time to Break-Up


3 Signs That It’s Time to Break-Up

There are guys out there that struggle with anger. While I feel anger is a normal emotion and should be nourished rather condemned like every emotion, there is a line between tolerable and intolerable. If you express something that you need or want from him and he bursts out in anger, then it’s time to leave. If you want to have a discussion over a serious issues and he burst out in anger, then it’s time to leave. If he bursts out in anger at you for things that you honestly have no idea over, then leave. Everyone gets angry once in awhile, but if it’s frequent then those are problems that he has to learn to deal with himself – it is not your responsibility. Know and fully believe that you deserve better.

Ultimately, I believe that YOU and ONLY YOU are able to adequately determine when you should break-up with the person you’re seeing. These are just some mere suggestions according to my experience. Relationships are very complex and there is wide variety of potential different scenarios. At the end of the day, trust your instincts.  Can you honestly see yourself able to grow and evolve as an individual while being with this person?  And there’s your answer.


Have you ever had to break-up with anyone before?  What was your reason?  If you think you waited too long to break-up with an ex-boyfriend, why do you think you should’ve done it sooner?  What kinds of stress did it cause you?
