9 Common Habits That Subtly Damage Your Relationship!

By- Shreya Sharma

Your relationship needs the care to nurture and grow. It is no less than a baby that needs all the care and pampering to grow in the right manner because a little bit of carelessness can make it take a wrong route. Your partner might be your top priority but he might not feel the same if you are doing any of the below-mentioned habits. Here are 9 common habits that subtly damage your relationship.

  1. Being too much on your phone

Keeping your cell phone on and checking your phone instantly at every single beep when you are with your partner can damage your relationship. Your partner might feel that they are not that important as the other person on your phone is to you. Give your partner full respect when you are with him by keeping your phone away.


  1. Nagging about everything

Your nagging and complaining nature can create tension in your relationship. Instead of nagging, it is better you wait for the right time to have a conversation with your partner. Be patient while discussing the matter.

  1. Being ungrateful towards his actions

It is not that hard to appreciate your man’s actions and small efforts he put into your relationship. Thank your man the smallest of his efforts; be it preparing coffee for you or taking out the trash.

  1. Being jealous always

Being jealous is a sign of insecurity, lack of trust, fear of betrayal and low confidence due to past experience. Take time to have the conversation with your partner about the situation that made you feel jealous and tell them why you felt in that manner to smooth down the situation.


  1. Lack of communication

When there is the lack of communication, it can lead to misunderstanding, resentment, and feeling of hurt and be unappreciated. Talk about the things that bother you when the time is right.

  1. Fighting over texts

Usually, the couples who do not live together or are in a long-distance relationship are likely to engage in fighting over texts. Fighting over texts is terrible because you do not know how your partner is reacting to your words. You will not get to know about what hurt your partner’s feelings. Wait to have the conversation face-to-face so that you can explain your emotions in right manner.

  1. Being too lost in relationship

When in the relationship, you do not have to lose the sense of self. You need to learn, grow and evolve. Do the things that interest you, work on your hobbies and have a life of your own as well. This makes you interesting and confident which adds to your relationship.


  1. Crossing your social limits

You cannot make decisions for your partner because it is straight out demeaning, disrespectful and you are taking away their sense of self. You might not notice it but it is a way of controlling your partner. It hurts our partner and their feelings.

  1. Not trying new things

While no one should force themselves to do something they don’t want to do, shutting down the part of ourselves that seeks new experiences and responds to a spark in our partner can drain us of our aliveness and spontaneity which can harm your relationship.
