As the title states we realise it is time to move on. But how can you be sure?
Are you scared of hurting this person’s feelings?
You’re that person who’s used to looking out for everyone else’s needs, you don’t want to be in this relationship, but you’re scared of telling the person it’s over. You’re not doing this person any favors by staying with them out of sympathy …
I compiled and resorted reseach from online and came up with some points that I felt could help.
Are you scared of being single? People are reluctant to end a relationship because they don’t want to be alone. It is only unfair to them, and unfair to yourself. In result you’re less likely to develop as an individual and find the right person for you.
Be willing to accept that maybe you’re just not that into them. Or they’re not into you. Sometimes we just don’t connect. Or sometimes one person develops strong feelings, and the other doesn’t. It’s not anyone’s fault. Affection and love can’t be forced.

You try to change your partner. We fall in love with people who don’t suit us. If you’re constantly trying to change your partner, it is time to move on.
You’re doing all the giving (or all the getting). Relationships are about mutual benefit. If one partner is benefiting over the other, the relationship is unhealthy.
“If you aren’t getting what you want or need from being with someone, it’s time to move on,” Many people give up their journeys to take on someone else’s. Decide where you’re going, find others who are on their own paths and then see where you might fit together“Give more thought to what you’re looking for before creating your relationships,”
Breaking up is hard and people involved in long-term relationships find that they have given up their dreams, plans and future to “fit” into someone else’s. The difficulty in breaking up is forgetting how to be self-sufficient. This creates a fear of loss and insecurity, which keeps unhealthy relationships together. Understand that we’re alone throughout our entire lives — even when we’re with someone else. “It’s not a bad thing,in fact, it is quite freeing”.
