Ways We’ve All Tried To Cover For A Bad Relationship
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 Went Out Anyway
Even though you’ve been fighting all night (like even after you rang the doorbell to your friend’s house and just before they opened the door).
Faking the Funk for Social Media
They may have been the flowers that got him out of the dog house, but they’re going on Instagram anyway.
You Don’t Vent to Loved Ones After a Fight
Even to the BFF you tell almost everything to.
You Have More Sex
Because when you’re still getting along in bed, at least you’re getting along somewhere…
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 Stop Having People over so Often
More often than not, the mood at home is chilly.
You Let Your Friends Convince You He’s a Keeper
Even if they don’t know all of the details.
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
And try to convince yourself (and others) that what he did wasn’t really that big of a deal.
You Fall out with Friends
You fall out with you friends because while they’ve been trying to tell you the truth, you haven’t been ready to hear it.
You Make Sure You Look Great Together
Because as long as things appear all well and good, that’s all that matters.
You Clean up Your Social Media
By deleting the negativity you posted in the heat of the moment…
You Play Crazy
Because that time he seriously crossed the line in public is No. 1 on your list of Things We Don’t Bring Up.
You Focus on Keeping the Relationship Together
Even if you’re getting further away from the good reasons for working on it that you used to have.
