When it comes to being in a relationship there are tons of things that can damage your connection. How is your relationship going?

There are a lot of things that go wrong in relationships; people cheat, lie, or become inconsiderate to their partners emotions. But what about the little things that people do that start to affect a relationship over time. These things may seem small, but they do have a HUGE impact on your relationship. Here are the 7 most common things you need to look out for in a relationship: 

1. You stop being loyal to one another

Trust is everything in a relationship, and once you break that trust it is a hard thing to come back from. Most of the time it has devastating effects on the relationship as a whole.

2. You lie to one another

Lying is never a good thing! If you feel something, say it; if you did something, say it. Lying will get you nowhere, and I repeat NOWHERE! Again, trust is everything when it comes to relationships, if you get caught in a lie over and over again your partner is not going to believe a word you say.

3. You let go of the romance

You should make an effort to do something nice for your partner, keeping the flames alive is so important. Yet, so many people forget this… Surprise your partner by taking them out for dinner, run them a bath with a few candles, or just do something around the house without being asked. It is the little things that count.

4. You go to bed angry

NEVER go to bed angry, this is one of the biggest no no’s. Talk about your frustration with your partner and let them know what is on your mind. Chances are it is an easy fix, and both of you can go to bed content.

5. Lack of sex

Sex does so many things for a relationship; it keeps you connected and the helps keep the flames burning. Make an effort to have sex at least once a week.

6. Lack of Communication 

Lack of communication is one of the number one relationship problems. You should always talk to your partner if something is on your mind, chances are it was all one big misunderstanding. When you let things boil down inside of you, it does nothing but leave you unhappy. If you want a happy, healthy relationship talk to your partner.

7. You do not express emotion well. 

These are all things that need to be addressed before moving on in your relationship. Do any of them sound like you? Negative energy only brings negative energy. Avoid doing these things and your relationship will be much better, all around. See below to find out how to keep your relationship healthy.
