Love isn’t always enough to keep a relationship going. You can love someone with all your heart but if they’re dragging you down it’s either jump ship or drown with them.

Ending things might not be easy, but sometimes it is the best option. Leaving someone you care about is painful and can take a lot out of you but can serve as a serious wakeup call for those who are being left. Being aware of your limits and boundaries is very important when it comes to figuring out whether it is time to leave or not.

Below I am going to go over some of the more common reasons why a woman might choose to cut ties with someone she loves and what those reasons boil down to. She might not want to stop being with you, but she has to for her own good. She can only take so much.

8 Reasons Why She Might Leave You Even If She Still Loves You:

1. You’re not putting forth the efforts she feels she needs.

She might not need you to go out of your way to change the world, but a little effort would be nice. If you’ve shown her time and time again that you’re not going to do anything for her or for the relationship itself she will eventually get to a point where she is fed up. She is not going to be with you if she has to continue on feeling as if she’s the only one putting work into the relationship.

2. She just isn’t happy.

At the end of the day no matter what kind of relationship you have if she is not happy she shouldn’t be with you. She has to do what is best for her and if that means leaving, it’s a decision that will happen whether you want it to or not. While this might be hard to come to terms with it is something that happens quite often.

3. You’re not willing to listen.

She needs you to be there for her and support her in all possible ways, this includes lending an ear sometimes. She wants to be with someone she can come to about her issues and talk to when she needs a friend. If you’re the kind of person who allows her words to go in one ear and out the other she will feel as if you do not care quite quickly.

4. You are not making her feel appreciated.

In a relationship, we all want to feel appreciated. If she feels like you don’t really care about her or value her she won’t be sticking around. She is not a toy and she has her own needs. You can’t go through the whole relationship beating her down or criticizing her only to expect her to stick by your side through thick and thin.

5. You’re trying too hard to fix everything for her.

You might think you’re doing a good job at being in the relationship if you’re trying to do all you can, but the truth is sometimes she doesn’t want you to fix things. She might come home and vent to you about her day or simply come to you with a problem but not wanting you to go out of your way to solve her problems. She just wants you to listen and be there for her, you can’t hover over her like a father all the time, you’re her lover, not her parent.

6. You don’t look at her the same anymore.

She wants to feel wanted and if you’re not providing that for her she will become unhappy. You might not want to be physically intimate anymore or you might refuse to give real compliments. While this might not send off red flags in your mind, it will in hers.

7. You’re emotionally unavailable.

She cannot be with someone who is closed off emotionally. If you’re unable to express your feelings and really let her in she has to do what’s best for her. Emotional availability is a big deal in serious relationships.

8. You never own up to your mistakes.

You as her lover need to know when to say you’re sorry and if you don’t then problems will come on quickly. While she might care for you she is going to get tired of always having to apologize for you or feel down when you refuse to place blame on yourself and instead force it onto her. She is not a punching bag, and you should never make her out to be one.
