One Sided Relationships

Relationship That Is Imbalanced Or One Way

A romantic relationship is between two people. Since a relationship is between two people it should not be a one-sided relationship. When an emotional person falls deeply in love, they do everything in their power to keep their partner happy and satisfied at every level. They give selfless love without expecting anything in return. There is unparalleled support for the other. There is complete dedication towards the other. All these are good things and are healthy signs of a great relationship but only if there is reciprocity and mutuality in the relationship. It is like just giving and giving without receiving anything in return. When only one person ends up doing all these things it leads to a one-sided relationship. A true relationship is a two-way street, not a one-way street to nowhere. There is constant belief that one day things will change but that day never comes. Some people are stuck in such relationship for years together without being able to repair or exit it. There is an age old saying a stitch in time saves nine.

One-sided relationship usually happens when one partner is sentimental and is deeply in love. The other has a more casual approach towards love in general. This could be relationship in which one is in love and other is simply infatuated. One partner is the one pitching in while the other doesn’t care less. This may work out perfectly in the beginning but eventually it can create a havoc in a relationship. Things can turn ugly and it can be long painful road to hell.
Following are some signs that you are in a one-sided relationship and it may be time to do some talking in order to bring some parity.

One person does most of the things in the relationship and the other almost docile. If only one person does everything and the other take any initiative or doesn’t even care to return the favor at all then it means they are taking their partner for granted.

One person initiate most of the communication in person and via phone calls or text messaging. If only one person is the only one to initiates all communications and the other only responds and never makes any effort on their own even if days go by without exchanging even a word then it shows the level of interest or keenness from the other side to remain in touch.

One person always proactively makes plans to meet up and spend time together. If only one person makes the effort to hang out and spend quality time together and the other agrees to it sometime and tries to make excuses other times for not being able to meet then it is apparent that things are just dragging.

One person is always held responsible for everything and asked to apologize without their fault. If one person is continuously taken on a guilt trip and made to feel apologetic then that can never be a good sign in any relationship.

One person always has to justify everything. If one person has to always provide justifications and clarifications for each and every thing then it leads to a controlling relationship.

One person is always constantly making sacrifices and giving up things for their relationship. If only one person is the one always compromising and letting things go in order to meet the demands in a relationship then it means there is no fairness in the relationship.

One person is always worried about the survival of the relationship while the other is carefree. If only one person is always stressed about making things work and other it doesn’t really matter to the other then one person is in total control over the other and this can be a very dangerous situation.
