Five of the most exhausting relationships ever


Having a good relationship is fantastic – which is why it’s so important to be aware of whether or not your relationship IS actually a good one.

Check out these five relationship types that are totally exhausting and not worth it. We hope for your sake they don’t sound too familiar!

Feeling like you can’t live without the other person is no way to live. You will both end up letting other aspects of your life suffer in order to make the relationship work. Skipping out on nights out with friends or quitting your job in order to spend more time with your other half isn’t good – and your other half shouldn’t encourage you to do these kinds of things either.

This is possibly one of the most dangerous relationships. Your man may become super jealous and demand you don’t talk to any of your male friends anymore, or he may hate it when you go out with your friends without him. These guys can usually be pretty charming so it’s hard to realise what he’s up to, but once you do, you’ll want to get out. Living under someone else’s control is awful.

You both probably really like each other but all you seem to do is fight, because you can’t agree on anything. Not good.

Prize Possession
He’s either gorgeous or loaded, or both, and he wants a pretty lady on his arm. That’s it. Nothing more. No thanks – we can’t look good every day!

Good on Paper
He looks great, is really nice and has a good job. Your friends like him, your parents like him – even your dog likes him. But you are just not too bothered. You’ll probably try really hard to get to like him for a while but eventually you’ll have to give him his p45. It’s a tragic situation to find yourself in!
