Signs that you are in a toxic romantic relationship.

On the surface, it would appear simple to recognize a poisonous relationship. However, when toxicity is connected to a romantic connection, things can become challenging. If this is the case and you suspect that your relationship may be toxic, it may be time to make some positive changes.

Here are five signs you may be in a toxic relationship:

Constant unhappiness: If you feel sad, angry, anxious, or resigned to the relationship. Negative shifts in your mental health, personality, or self-esteem can be red flags as well. These shifts could range from feeling on edge around your partner to clinically diagnosable conditions such as depression, anxiety, or eating disorders.

Your partner has no friends otherthan you: Relationships are stronger when both partners have friends and interests outside of each other. If your partner is possessive and discourages you from going out with friends, that is a red flag.

Your partner calls you names or criticizes you personally: Personal attacks or devaluing someone’s personality, values, or physical appearance are a hallmark signs that you are in a toxic relationship.

Your partner constantly texts you to check-in: Staying in touch by sending silly memes or cute messages is positive, but a toxic partner will use texting to control you. This could include tracking your location, asking you to text back frequently or take pictures to prove where you are.

Your friends or family hate your partner: How those close to you feel about your partner is probably the most underrated yet most important sign of a toxic relationship. Pay close attention to what your loved ones tell you and also if you feel like there are things you can’t tell them. They have an objective perspective and they want you to be safe and happy.
