If your partner doesn’t care about you at the start of your relationship things will only get worse. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you can change them or that moving in together, getting married or even having a family will make things better, they won’t.
People don’t change, so don’t put yourself down by staying with someone who is only concerned about themselves and not you.
You want a partner who respects you and makes you feel special, someone who truly cares about you and loves you. Not someone who has learnt to go through the motions in order to stop you ending the relationship. If your partner really cares about you, they’ll make it very clear. If deep down they are putting themselves first and taking you for granted, things won’t change.
You deserve better. Somewhere out there is someone who will care for you properly, in every sense. Don’t throw yourself away on someone who won’t, it will damage your confidence and self- esteem and over the years it will make you bitter and unhappy.
Never stay with someone because you are scared of being alone – you can be very alone in a bad relationship.
