Relationship expert Kimberly Chapman has gone viral on TikTok for sharing five reasons that you’re wasting your time on someone. Her vid gained so much notice that “Newsweek” also spoke with her to chat directly.
What were her five signs?
- They don't seem eager to move the relationship forward.
- You are making significantly more of an effort than they are.
- They've stopped getting to know you on a deeper level.
- They don't involve you in their life.
- You spend most of your time confused.
Chapman says "My clients tell me that, even though their intention is to end up in a committed relationship, they're willing to keep things casual in the beginning so they don't scare off the other person. The problem is that, without having these direct conversations upfront, people assume they're on the same page until it becomes clear they're not," Kimberly explains.
She also says that she urges her clients to not get into “situationships” if the other person isn’t “equally as interested” as you are since this could do harm to your mental health.
