Here are some tell-tale signs your partner is just sticking around until someone better comes along.
1. Discussions about marriage are avoided: If discussions about making your relationship more permanent are shut down before you can even get started, this is a red flag. A partner who just wants to have a casual relationship will not want to discuss the possibility of getting married
2. You’re not in the future: If your partner talks about the future but you’re never mentioned in his or her plans, there’s a problem. Someone who is excited about your relationship and desires to spend a lifetime with you will make these intentions clear.
3. Your partner runs hot and cold: If things are hot and spicy one minute and then ice cold the next, your partner could be playing games with you. If you never know quite where you stand when it comes to a long-term commitment
4. You want different things: Do you want children but your partner doesn’t? Are you dead set on monogamy but your partner prefers polyamory? This is a big indicator that you are not going to be walking down the aisle anytime soon.
5. Your partner tells you: The most obvious sign? Your partner tells you that marriage just isn’t in the cards.
