8 Signs You’re In A Fake Relationship

8 Signs You’re In A Fake Relationship

There are a lot of things that need to be considered in order to be in a ‘real relationship’
because one can easily manipulate someone and fool them into believing that they actually
love them.

Mostly people try to get in relationships just to ‘get in their pants’, or it is more like a ‘timepass’
kind of a thing.

Here are the red flags that you need to keep an eye out for and prevent yourself from being
1. The communication sucks
Good communication is a requisite for a healthy relationship, if you are in a relationship where
you two barely communicate, you can’t recall the last time you had a heart to heart with your
partner, you just text each other every once in a while, it’s just on and off, you are unaware of
what’s going on in the other person’s life and it generally feels like you don’t know the other
person then you’re not really in a relationship.

You have formed a real bond only when you feel connected with your partner; emotionally,
physically and mentally.

For example, if we talk about long distance relationships. The communication is kind of the
only thing the two have.

They don’t get to see each other every day, they don’t get to go on a date with each other
either, texting and calling each other is the only thing they have. Now, in order to stay
together, they have to talk nearly all day long.

You have to text them all the time to know ‘what’s up’, you have to call quite often to know
how they are doing, maybe a video call sometimes and go on a ‘virtual’ date.

2. Too much PDA
This might come as a surprise, you two are practically nibbling on each other, isn’t that a good
thing? No, it isn’t. This is indicative of over-compensatory and ostentatious behaviour. You are
trying to put on a show, a make-believe.

It’s a way of maintaining the illusion that you guys have created, to lie to yourself and the
others around you.

You might be in a fake relationship and still manage to hear things like; ‘What a perfect couple
you guys are’, ‘You make us want to have a relationship’ etc.

If you guys are not this crazy about each other in private but can’t keep your hands off each
other as soon as you have company, then you have a few questions to ask.
