Either way, the person you choose to spend your life with should really lift you up rather than drag you down.And it shouldn't feel like "work" most of the time.It's not always going to be sunshine and roses, but you should feel happy to see them most of the time. You are always watching what you say or how you act, because your partner tends to get on your case or has been critical of you in the past.You just never feel completely relaxed around them, even after dating for a good amount of months.If you are with someone and don't really want to introduce them to your friends, this is not a good sign (and you should ask yourself why! If you are with someone and they never bring you around their friends, it's another sign.If your most trusted friends are expressing concern about your relationship, take heart.If you can't be who you truly are with your significant other, it's time to think hard about what you are doing in a situation like this..why. While it's true that our partners aren't responsible for our happiness, they should certainly make our days a little brighter!
Instead of feeling energized after hanging out with your partner, you feel emotionally drained most of the time.They seem to always have something to complain about, or just have a negative outlook on life.
