When you think about your relationship, the person you're dating, your girlfriend, boyfriend, partner or wife, you ultimately know without much digging or soul searching if things are going well or if you're a few days or hours, in fact, away from a breakup.
But sometime the signs of a relationship starting to falter aren't quite as easy to spot, and they're embedded in conversations, looks or non verbal cues or moves that the average person doesn't always pick up on daily or during the course of the random argument or interaction.
For instance, think about the conversations you have with your significant other. How exactly do they go, how do they start and most importantly, how do they end?
If the conversations or just even the most random speaking parts of your relationship center on negativity or the tone is totally not upbeat at all. The key to great communication is not pretending you don't fight or argue but to keep the conversation upbeat and make sure to include something positive as part of it.
That being said, conflict is something a relationship has to go through on a sporadic basis so withdrawing completely from any sort of conflict is bad. You have to make it a point to work out lingering issues or the really big ones, and leaving them linger is only going to make feelings even more hurt or when things finally come to pass, they'll blow up and become more difficult to salvage.
