What do you feel is the #1 cause of break-ups?
I know there is NO one reason, but what do you feel is the most common cause?
I can only answer for myself, but most of my relationships have ended because the person I was dating had low self-esteem.
The problem with dating a person who lacks confidence and self-worth is that they are always second guessing your motives for being with them. They are frightened you are going to leave at any minute. Consequently they don't open themselves up to you and/or they don't allow themselves to depend on you in any way.
I can't be with someone who is so emotionally guarded, its a barrier to an honest relationship. If in spite of my best efforts I can't win their unconditional trust, I'll leave. Proving them right and perpetuating the problem.
i AGREE WITH the low self esteem issue. I have low self esteem and i lost relationships because of it. im still trying to over come that. the hard part is i got it from my ex husband. so it is a struggle
#1 - Cheating - Getting caught or confessing to an affair/s.
#2 - Domestic Abuse - Emotional or physical.
#3 - Substance Abuse - Alcohol or drug abuse.
i think the number one cause is dependency most people when in relationship begin to become dependant on their significant other and tend to lose themself with in that person and become someone totally different in the end.
lack of understanding
