You would think it wouldn't take long to tell when a relationship may be doomed. But you would surprise even yourself how long it takes. I think all of us have ignored the signs. The little ones, but also the really big ones. We all make excuses for the other person and rationalize the bad things away.
So in the interest of saving some people a lot of time and trouble here's my list of ways to tell if the relationship is doomed. These have all happened to me or some of my friends. Like I said, you'd be surprised what you can choose to be blind to.
-He buys his ex-wife a Valentine's day gift, but nothing for you.
-They are still married.
-She buys you a movie that you despise. And expects you to be thrilled about it.
-When you tell him you're pregnant he asks if it is his or not.
-They say any variation of.."You know you'd be so pretty/handsome if you only lost weight."
-They abuse you, emotionally or physically.
-When confronted with something crappy they have done, they act like you are a crazy bitch and have no reason to be mad.
-They insist on you paying for a trip to Las Vegas, but they want to go with another dude, not you, and when you call you can hear his voice in the background. In her room. That you paid for.
-They belittle you in front of other people.
-They absolutely never take your side.
-They say "If you really love me you'd.....etc, etc."
-They make sex a condition for love/affection/anything
-And last but not least, they get millions of dollars to broadcast your wedding on national television and then break up with you through twitter.
I know there are a hundred other ways to tell. Did I miss anything? How did you tell when one of your relationships was doomed?
