Lately, you’ve been questioning your partner’s emotional maturity and wondering if they’re capable of bringing it to your relationship. Here are some signs that unfortunately, they’re just not up to the task.
1. THEY DON’T HAVE A SUPPORT SYSTEM. One huge red flag is that your partner doesn’t have a solid set of friends, family, or professionals supporting them. This means they’re just sort of flapping in the wind, not running things by others to get input or feedback. This could result in poor decision-making or it could mean that they lean entirely on you to help make decisions.
2. THEIR COMMUNICATION BLOWS. They don’t know how to effectively communicate when they’re upset with you. Instead, they’re passive aggressive and avoidant. This is an indicator that they haven’t learned how to sit down and talk it out like an adult, so they obviously haven’t had a relationship where they’ve done so yet. This is unfortunate because communication is one of the most important parts of a relationship.
3. THEY DEAL WITH CONFLICT INEFFECTIVELY. It’s inevitable that you’re going to disagree on things from time to time. Most people can handle this and deal properly, but your partner handles conflict like a child. They do the equivalent of stomping their feet to get what they want. They refuse to see your point of view no matter how you say it. Inability to handle conflict is a bad sign because it means your problems are never going to really get resolved. relationships,relationships,relationships
