Have you ever tried to cover for a bad relationship?

When it comes to love, most of us have found ourselves trying to make things work even when they clearly aren’t meant to.  Sometimes the gamble pays off and we get through a rough patch without friends and family advising us to end something before it’s really over. Other times, we find ourselves faking the funk for longer than we should even when the love is gone.

We’re not saying that trying to cover for a relationship is always the way to go. We just want to know if you’ve ever found yourself in these situations. If you have, were you able to get over a rough patch and make things work, or did you just delay the inevitable?

You Lie About How Often You Have Sex

When it comes up at a party (or even sometimes on a survey), you pretend like things are hot and heavy. I guess it’s kind of three times a week — if you round up.

You Try to Get Serious About Your Relationship

We’re not saying it works, we’re just saying that you’re not the first couple to try to fix fussing and fighting with a little more commitment.

You Make Molehills out of Mountains

Even if you’re getting further away from the good reasons for working on it that you used to have.
