12 Signs You Were the One Who Poisoned the Relationship

9. When your partner would try to broach certain topics, you stonewalled them.

Relationship experts cite “stonewalling” as one of the four indicators that a relationship will fail. If this is your way of handling problems, it’s safe to say that you’re probably going to ruin every other relationship you have until you fix yourself.

10. You literally wouldn’t hang out with anyone BUT your partner.

If you don’t have your own hobbies and friends, you’re probably going to poison your relationship by getting too needy and clingy. It’s hard, I know, but you need to keep separate and have “space breaks” just to have material to talk about at the end of the day. I speak from experience.

11. You expected your partner to do all the work in the relationship.

The quickest way to make sure that your partner resents you is to make sure they’re the ones who have to pay all the bills, do all the housework, and take care of the kids. The more work your partner has to do, the more likely it is that they’ll resent you.

12. You see relationships as pairings that have a “winner” and a “loser.”

This attitude is inherently unhealthy and tends to be indicative of abusive behavior you might act out. A healthy relationship is a partnership, not a domination trip. Rethink your attitude next relationship and seriously consider getting therapy for this. This isn’t healthy. Rethink the way you do things and you might have a shot at happiness.
