Almost anyone who has been disappointed or hurt by love will conclude that relationship sucks especially after so many efforts.
While it’s so easy to think relationship is terrible because of your bitter and bad experience(s) in the past, bear in mind that a successful relationship doesn’t just happen.

No human relationship is easy!
Whether it is the oftentimes of relationships that we termed dating or the about-to-wed; even the married couple, there are five integral ingredients to relationships. These are:
The unpalatable truth is, “every relationship requires work” Yes you read right. Often times, hard work. You need to work on your relationship embracing those five listed ingredients above.
Why is relationship still terrible after putting in so much work, fulfilling all the requirements above?
Below are 5 top reasons why your relationship is terrible and sucks after so much efforts:
People tend to forget that relationship involves the efforts and workings of two individuals. Not one person. It is not like any other area of life, where you can go solo and achieve success.
A relationship needs two people. Therefore, when all passion, love, efforts are one-sided, a relationship will be terrible and bound to fail.
There is a mythology about the word, “ego”, that only men has it. When in the real sense, both gender have ego.
Ego can take over if partners refuses to make some sacrifices, give allowance to each other. When this attitude keeps on and both are not ready to shift ground, they are heading to the rocks.
Today, many relationships are full of woes and bitter tales because many did not have REAL and SERIOUS CONVERSATION before and during their relationship.
Technology has taken over many lives now. Couples call, chat over the phone, send text messages, voice notes thereby not getting to see eye contacts and body languages that bares it all.
So many has allowed the social media to turn what could have been a beautiful relationship to terrible regrettable ones.
At the end of the day, you will hear things like, “he didn’t tell me…”, “she hid the truth from me…” etc.

Lack of Mutual Interest
Do you enjoy your partner’s company?
Now listen, I’m not talking about how great he/she is in bed. Most relationships has put the first last and the last first.
Sex is not the first thing in a relationship neither is money.
You need to ask yourself, “Do you truly enjoy being with this person?” “Can I be locked up with this individual for hours and truly strike up good conversations?”
Lack of genuine interest in each other’s company or a short span of it has killed many relationships.
Chances are that there would be moments when there would be no interest in sexual activities; in such scenario you need a real friend not a selfish individual.

Life is all about Odds.
You want to be with someone that will make you happy? First, be that person that brings happiness.
You see, a lot of couples don’t fix their relationships, they simply replace it and move on… when they can sit and have heart to heart conversation instead of jumping straight to breakups and heartaches.
I will stop with this important note that there are lots of good relationships existing out there. You too can embrace it if you have the right belief, emotional stability, mindset and patience.
