Lifestyle | By Cole Damon | February 1, 2018

Being in a bad relationship can cause you a lot of mental and physical stress. Not only do you have to bear undue tantrums from the other person, but also have to sacrifice more than what you bargained for in a bid to keep things running smoothly in a relationship. Here are 15 signs to identify you are in a bad relationship and should move on.

Wondering About Relationship

The first and foremost sign about being in a bad relationship is that you wonder about the relationship and how much of an impact it is having on you all the time. You perceive the relationship as bad for you in the long run.

You're Not a Priority

The worst thing about being in a bad relationship is that you're no more the number one priority. The person you are in a relationship does not prioritize you and that makes you feel skeptical about the continuity of the relationship.

You Can't Do Anything

You know that your relationship is not headed down the right path, but you cannot do anything about it because you feel so powerless. The wrong relationship can be very tiring as the person has no control whatsoever of all that is happening.

Friends and Family Don't Like Him

Your friends and family don't really your partner and they feel like you can definitely do better than him/her. You start believing what they say and eventually start thinking that maybe, you do need someone better in life.

They Have Problems

The worst about a bad relationship is that the other person has problems and associates those problems with the relationship. They start making those problems sound like problems for the relationship and back out once you feel confused.

You Don't Trust Them

Trust is an important factor in a relationship, and if it is not present the relationship does not progress forward well. The trust in a relationship decides how both the partners go about things. There is often no trust in a bad relationship.

You're Happy Without Them

You know that both of you are in a bad relationship if you feel happy when they are not around. You are fighting all the time and there is nothing better than not having them around and enjoying some peaceful time alone.

You Pay For Everything

A good relationship is based on trust and the fact that both the partners are equal participants when it comes to paying for stuff at the restaurant. If it is one person that is paying for everything, then the relationship is not worth it.

They're Worried About Breaking Up

You know you're in a bad relationship when one of the members in the relation is constantly worried about breaking up more than anything else. This shows insecurity and the fact that you guys don't trust each other.

They're Mentally Elsewhere

If the person you're in a relationship with is not mentally connected with you, the whole point of a relationship is lost. A relationship thrives on both partners getting to know each other better and having concrete feelings.

Remembering the Good Times

All your times in a relationship are spent remembering the good times. The times when both of you would properly love each other without having such awkward feelings against each other. The good times are gone, and so are your feelings.

Your Partner Calls You Stupid

A relationship in which pone partner feels they are cleverer than or more intelligent than the other partner is definitely not worth pursuing. Such relationships often don't last, and they surely have a bad future considering the weak nature of the couple.

They Don't Care for Your Opinion

Someone who doesn't care about you would also no care about your opinion. Now, there are numerous couples in the world, but there are some where one partner does not care about the authoritarian rule of the other.

They Criticize Your Body

A relationship where one partner is heavily criticizing the body of another partner is often built on weak grounds. Such relationships are focused on nothing, but criticism and hate for each partner. It is better to leave such situations.

You Feel Lonely

You know a relationship is not headed the right way when one of the partners feels lonely in the presence of the other person. They don't communicate a lot and there is a lot of beef between both of them.

Did You Know...

I

Celebrities are no strangers to changing their looks for a role. And in some instances, they have to get pretty extreme. From 500-calorie-a-day diets to drinking pints of ice cream, Actors and actresses know what it takes to change their bodies in preparation for a new film.

II

Charlize Theron is no stranger to gaining and losing weight for movie roles, as we remember her transformation in Monster. Charlize Theron gained close to 50 pounds for her role as Marlo in Tully. Theron said that “for the first time in my life I was eating so much processed foods and I drank way too much sugar. … I remember having to set my alarm in the middle of the night in order to just maintain the weight.”

III

You’re used Chris Hemsworth's hulk-like figure in Thor, but In the Heart of the Sea required a totally different diet. The movie required the cast members lose a ton of weight to make their stuck-at-sea plight more believable. Chris Hemsworth said there were days when all he ate was one boiled egg, a couple of crackers, and a celery stick.

IV

Anne Hathaway wanted to get serious for her role in Les Misérables, as she was playing Fantine, a starving prostitute with tuberculosis. So Anne Hathaway went on a diet of “rabbit food” to drop 25 pounds. Hathaway explained her diet was essentially just starving herself, but she didn’t want to give details, as she doesn’t want to encourage anyone to copy her emaciated look. She did note that she “just had to stop eating for a total of 13 days shooting,” however. And at one point, her bones became so frail that she reportedly broke her arm.

V

Matthew McConaughey's portrayal of Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club, a man with HIV/AIDS, was spot-on, earning him the title of best actor at the Oscars. But it also required a serious physical transformation. Matthew McConaughey said he lost 38 pounds for the role. During filming, he said he lost a lot of energy from eating so little — and he hit plenty of plateaus along the way. Finally, with a strict diet, he got down to 143 pounds. And while he did cardio to help with the weight loss, he said it was 90% what he was eating and portion size.

VI

Hilary Swank had to put on 23 pounds of pure muscle for her role as a boxer in Million Dollar Baby. The process doesn’t sound easy, however. “I started working out five hours a day — I had to eat 210 grams of protein a day,” Swank said. She also mentioned that she had to consume 60 egg whites per day, and when that proved too difficult, she had to drink them. And to keep the muscle on, she would get up and drink protein shakes in the middle of the night.
