- Ten Ways To Ruin A Relationship:
1. Be critical. Even "constructive" criticism can make your partner
defensive and reduce the feeling of safety in a relationship. Being harsh and
judgmental when angry can trigger a "flight or fight response."
2. Insist your partner be exactly the same as you. Hendrix and LaKelly Hunt
say "absolute compatibility" is an express route to a dull relationship. If
you insist your partner have the same feelings and perceptions as you do, it
can lead to despair and misery.
3. Flee from intimacy. If you habitually avoid being physically or emotionally
close with your partner through escaping into work, hobbies, television, or
other activities, you risk creating a divide between you and your partner that
may become impossible to breach.
