12 Signs You Were the One Who Poisoned the Relationship

3. Your partner constantly looked sad, but you never made any effort to find out why.

In many cases, people won’t tell you what’s wrong unless you ask. If you didn’t even try to ask, you shouldn’t be surprised your partner left you. They probably assumed you just didn’t care.

4. You don’t remember the last time that you tried to do something nice for your partner without strings being attached to it.

The minute that you just assume that your partner doesn’t need a sign of gratitude for all they do is the minute that the relationship starts to fade away. You need to work to show your partner that you still love them and appreciate them. Otherwise, they will begin to feel ignored.

5. You treated your partner poorly because you never thought they’d leave.

I’ve personally been on the receiving end of this treatment, and it never ceases to amaze me how it floored my exes to see me leave. If you ever think this is acceptable, you need to reevaluate the way you think of love. Your partner can always leave, and if you’re doing this, they should leave.
