It isn’t always easy to know when a relationship is over. Whether you’re currently involved, or whether the other person is simply a constant presence in your life (perhaps even an ex), it’s hard to know when it’s truly time to call it quits and give one another adequate space to heal and move forward.
People recently took to Whisper to give advice on how to know if it’s time to bail on a relationship. Though the answers were varied, it seems pretty obvious that the best rule of thumb is to listen to your gut — and be honest with yourself.
Hopefully some of these pieces of advice will be helpful, should you find yourself wondering about the state of one of your relationships. At the very least, perhaps it’s comforting to know that other people have been in the exact same boat.
