Today dating is harder then it’s ever been before. You’re more likely too hook up with someone and start dating them rather than going on dates and getting to know them first. Commitment isn’t as popular anymore and it can really hard to tell how someone feels about you and the relationship you have with them. Are they keeping you around because they want to get to you know you or is it just a casual hook up?
You never want to feel like you’re wasting your time with some so, if you’re unsure where you stand if your current relationship, here are 4 signs that your partner is stringing you along.
The communication is touch and go.
Sometimes you text or chat all day and someones it’s minimal if that. Touch and go communication is usually a sign that they’re stringing you along. Even if someone is a bad texter, minimal communication usually means that you’re not a top priority.
They won’t commit.
You’re probably thinking obviously to this one! But not making effort or talking about the future is usually a sign that the person is uncommitted and just stringing you along. Maybe they don’t make plans or introduce you to their friends. If someone is falling in love with you, you’re going to get all their effort and you’ll know that you’re a priority.
Not everything is equal.
You want an even give and take in a relationship. If you’re putting all the work and effort in to get nothing in return, this is usually a sign that your partner is stringing you along and does not want something that is long term.
They’re emotionally immature.
If your partner isn’t present for your emotional needs this is also a sign that they’re stringing you along. Them brushing off something important to you shows that you aren’t a priority.
What to do?
Being strung along sucks! But you’re going to want to know sooner rather than later because that’s not fair to you. It’s hard but if you’re questioning the relationship then ASK! You want to always be on the same page as your partner. At the end of the day, you deserve better!
