Once you do see a destructive pattern like this, however, if keep investing in the relationship you are surely headed for heartache and ruin on many levels. Facing the reality is difficult when everything else in the relationship is in order, or if he is genuinely a decent man in spite of this “little” issue. My point is, however, that over the long haul, such a pattern is not insignificant, and that’s why periodic assessments of your relationship, starting today, matter. You’ll save yourself heartache, and a lot of wasted time.
Look for patterns in your relationship to determine if he's a keeper.
