Have you ever been in love with some that never loved you back? No matter what you do, this individual will never say it, but support you in a patronizing way. The best course of action is to stop your pursuit and cope with the situation until you can get out. This will allow you to detach and break the emotional bond. It is important to do this in order to save your romantic energy for someone actually worth it. One routine sequence of human behavior is that your love for this person will restrict your actions to move on with your life. They may actually use your “love” as an anchor to keep you in the situation by giving morsels of interest. They want to actually be with someone better than you, but would probably, but not always like to keep you as a fall-back.
Unlike the confused person, these people know exactly what they are doing because they deliberately fail to say the three words “I Love You”, and actually use you for convenience such as sex, a place to stay, or moral support of some sort. In other words, their agenda is a bout them and no matter how much money you spend, or what they desire, it will ever equal to being good enough. In fact, they will get to a point of expecting more loyalty from you than they are willing to give and of course being used is part of the process. They may want to use terms such as having their freedom, wanting to meet other people, or anything else, but if you propose to end the relationship, they are quick to object. “Why should they ruin a good thing for them?” One thing to understand about relationships is that when the sex and intimacy stops, a loss of respect is coming shortly and then a proposal for becoming friends.
If your partner cannot say “I Love You.” back to you, then it is time to move on, because you are wasting good energy on a bad situation. One thing to be mindful about people like this is that they will perpetually seek out others no matter who they are with and fidelity is commonly and issue. So in retrospect, you are not losing anything being without this person, but gaining your self-respect and saving emotional capital for a better person who can appreciate you. The premise for this behavior is usually based on a bad past relationship that had nothing to do with you, but you are stilled judged by the legacy. The fear for them is that he or she is missing out on life and that for some reason the expectation is that a new set of circumstances are better than the one you he or she is currently dealing with in the relationship. The only thing that changes is that the new relationship sought is not routine and they are not familiar with the work associated with potentially sustaining it. However, in many cases if things fail to workout, they may try to come back later or at least attempt to have updates on your life.
The main message here is to not allow yourself to become the fool and was time, emotions, and dignity on a pointless relationship. Having a piece of a relationship is not worth the headache, and remember when the sex dies a good portion of the relationship is dead.
