Dating a guy out of pity
So, I don't think you have to break up the moment you realize a relationship's temporary if you're still getting enough out of it.I think you should probably break up once you know your partner's hurting your life more than they're improving it — once you spend more time fighting than having fun together, or once the thought of your partner makes you worry more than it makes you smile.
It is easy to see only the positive in the other person and completely ignore any warning signs. It would be foolish to date someone and not even consider the possible outcomes.
If you're staying out of guilt or a desire to not hurt the other person, your hearts definitely in a good place, it's just not in the relationship anymore.
Staying with someone out of pity is not kindness and ultimately, it hurts your partner more in the end, which is not loving at all."Here are some signs that you've reached that point where your heart isn't in the relationship and you're better off moving on than dragging out its downfall.
But when we do this, things are rarely the same as they were in the beginning, since we know we've got one foot out the door, and our partners sense it, too.
There have been multiple times when I've known a relationship would end eventually but stayed. Not every relationship is meant to last forever, and the fact that a relationship has ended doesn't make it a failure.
