9 Surefire Ways to Sabotage Your Relationship

SOURCE:  Kim Blackham

Have you ever wondered what the most effective way to ruin a relationship would be?  Below are 9 simple and surefire ways to sabotage yours.

  • Criticize your partner, point out all his or her flaws, and demand that he or she fix them. This kind of interaction will certainly help things fall apart quickly.  The meaner and more cutting your tone, the better.  And don’t forget facial expressions.  Make sure they are condescending and clearly communicate your disapproval. 
  • Ignore your partner, shut him or her out, appear emotionless and totally unresponsive.  If you really want to get the fights going and increase the fear and panic in your partner, this is the way to go.  Talk logically and reasonably, and make sure to stick to the facts.  Facts really don’t matter in relationships as much as the connection, so if you stick to the facts, you are sure to back the relationship into a corner to where it can begin to deteriorate.
  • Involve as many other people as possible – friends, family, church members, co-workers, etc.  The more you can talk negatively about your partner, the more damage you can inflict.  As soon as everyone around you starts forming an opinion – based only on your side of the story of course, the more you can feel justified in your negative emotions and eventual decision to end the relationship.
