When it comes to relationships, there are thousands of different kinds, including types of toxic relationships that you really need to avoid. Avoiding these types of toxic relationships can be hard, especially if you don’t know exactly what you should be looking out for. Here are 6 different toxic relationships that should be on your radar, so watch out!
Negative thinking relationship
This is one of the most common types of toxic relationships that can actually be really hard to avoid. We’ve all been negative at one point in our lives, but to build a relationship out of negativity? It’s awful! This relationship is a constant cycle of complaining, of cancelling plans and of just plain being negative and never, ever looking on the bright side.
What about a relationship where you both constantly cheat but you don’t think your partner would ever do that? This is a relationship that is not full of trust – but rather full of emptiness. Any type of infidelity in a relationship makes it toxic, so you have to watch out.
This is a horrible relationship to be in too, this is the opposite end of the spectrum from the cheating type of relationship. This is where your every move, every thought, every word is controlled or judged or can be made out to make your partner jealous. Have you ever been afraid to make plans with people because your partner will get mad? This is toxic and not a good relationship to be in.
The blaming relationship is where you or your partner is constantly at fault for something and you are constantly blaming each other. This relationship is toxic because there isn’t a lot of trust, there isn’t a lot of anything but blame in it. Who would want to be in this type of relationship?
What about a relationship that is very, very demanding? A relationship that is filled with demands, so many expectations and tons of concessions.
Neither competition or manipulation should ever be in a relationship. If you are in a relationship that is constantly competitive or manipulative, it isn’t a good one to be in. Hands down, this one can screw you up a lot.
