What destroys relationships the most nowadays.

Today I decided to open the platform for you, our readers to give me input on “what you think is destroying relationships nowadays”.  I was so impressed by the answers.  Many of you had some strong reasons I never thought about.  I learned a lot and It’s only right to blog about it.

Many of those answers were the usual, lack of maturity, loyalty, communication etc.  These answers however had some great point I believe everyone needs read.


“We do go into relationship with the mindset that it’s a now thing.  Let me enjoy the now moment, which isn’t bad, but why are you dating?   We don’t care to date with purpose.  With divorce rate being so high, marriage is mocked we don’t set goals towards it.  We’re treating dating as a game”.


Many of us don’t know who we are, neither do we care to know ourselves.  We would rather try to find happiness in things like relationships and in people like our partners.  We are scared to face the person in the mirror.  We hear “love yourself first” and think it’s just a quote rarely apply it”.

    For me the main reasons would be these.

    First off, communication. It’s horrible nowadays. When I was in a relationship we’d chat a lot over the phone. And this doesn’t get you close to them, but to your phone. It could also potentially ruin the real life chats as there’s not going to be much left to talk about.

    Then there’s insecurity and the also the feeling of entitlement, those two can kill any relationship, no matter how great.
    Insecurity speaks for itself, I suppose. The feeling of entitlement is just wrong nowadays. People tend to look for something or someone much better than who they’re with, just because they feel they deserve someone better. Even though they generally don’t even see what they’ve got. Mainly because they’re bored or get fooled by social media (as you mentioned).

    I really do think it’s a shame where relationships are headed. Most people don’t really understand the concept of love anymore nowadays.

    One thing though, people should talk more often, be more open and willing to actually engage in conversation with their other half. Communication is key in my opinion.

    Sorry about the long and probably not ”sense-making” comment!
