A Prince Charming right out of a fairytale. It’s now history. And that’s what not many girls want, today. A simple, humble, understanding and loving partner is a new choice. However, while we all want the best of the partners in the world, what we end up missing is keeping a check on our habits.

From taking our partners for granted, time and again, to have little or no value of them, everyone ends up making similar mistakes that can prove to be a deal-breaker when it comes to relationships. Because no one wants a relationship just for the sake of it.

So, if you are wondering if you, too, are responsible for damaging your relationship, unintentionally, here we list 6 habits that may ruin your perfect and dreamy relationship.

Not respecting your partner


A relationship is built on the foundation of respect. If you are doing everything you can for your partner, however, you lack respect for him or her, you might not realize it now but it’s slowly damaging your relationship. No matter how much you want to deny it, even if your partner remains silent about it, it doesn’t mean he or she is unaffected by it. So, if intentionally or unintentionally, you have been doing it, it’s time for you to kick out this habit.

Lying often


Sweet, simple lies don’t hurt. After all, we are just hiding things. Many of us take shelter in the fact that not all lies can damage our relationship. However, no matter how big or small it is, a lie is a lie. While you may not realize it, sooner or later the truth will unfold, or it maybe it already did, and you will end up sacrificing your relationship for that lie. If it’s about meeting an old friend or an ex, be transparent about your whereabouts and don’t take to lying because you think your partner will otherwise put restrictions because he or she won’t understand you.

Taking your partner for granted


Let’s be honest. We all are guilty of doing this at some point in time. However, it’s not usually deadly. That said if you find yourself taking your partner for granted all the time, and you don’t see any wrong with it, you must have ruined your relationship, already. But if you are fortunate enough to have found an understanding partner, thank God and throw this habit out of your life right now.

Prioritizing other people/things


Many people say the most common reason for them walking out of a relationship is not being on their partner’s priority list. Humans can settle for less, however, the feeling of being someone’s priority is something that not everyone can give up on. So, if it’s your work, family, or friends who always top your priority list, you might want to reconsider it. Not that, you should be ignoring everyone around but be wise enough in knowing how and when you have to prioritize them.

Constantly nitpicking


If you have the habit of nitpicking and your partner is your target, most of the time, you are damaging your relationship. It’s imperative for the two involved in a relationship to accept each other’s flaws and help them overcome them, instead of finding flaws and making them feel embarrassed about them.

Being overly possessive


Being possessive is fine, being over possessive is not. While some may put up with this habit of their partners, not everyone is patient enough to deal with it. So, it’s better to be on the safe side, trust your partner and kick out the habit. If that’s something you are not able to do instantly, talk about it with your partner and let them help. Mutual understanding will make you sail through even the toughest of times in your relationship.
