As a nod to splitting season, is tackling everything from the Why do people hold on to a relationship—trying desperately to make it work, convincing themselves it will get better, or ignoring their own misery—even when they know it's over? Here, 10 people share why they stayed in a relationship past its expiration date. Rachel: If I'm being completely honest, I stayed because I didn't think anyone else would ever love me that much. Instead of bonding over the puppy, we fought over everything the puppy did.But we fought all the time; he had drug and alcohol problems; and I had known it was over and I should get out for months. I would want to go out to brunch and he would tell me I was an irresponsible puppy parent.
Just before our two year anniversary, I met someone, who, simply, made me feel differently.Amanda: I tend to roll my eyes a little at people who talk about sex in an intensely emotional way, but there are some people your body connects with in a way that it simply doesn't with anyone else.Add to that a deep, fundamental insecurity that led this man to sleep around like crazy, his was a combination of skill and instinct that completely knocked me on my ass.I knew the relationship was over almost nine months before I was finally able to end it.And, even, then it only really happened when I had so much resentment and stress built up that I didn't want him to touch me anymore. He and I had been together for five years and I'd spent multiple holidays with his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.Rob: I was dating this British guy who was perfect on paper: good job, handsome, and we had great sexual chemistry.
About four months into the relationship, I realized I hadn't met any of his friends. Acknowledging this factor put him in a whole new light for me, and I started seeing other things I didn't like about him, like the fact that he was pompous, and liked to live as a one percenter when actually he lives paycheck to paycheck.
I finally had to stop responding to his text messages and eventually texted him to say that I couldn't see this working out.
Monica: My longest relationship lasted two-and-a-half years in my early twenties.
The first time we slept together was one of the most intense experiences of my life.
At its peak, he could practically make me orgasm with just a look.
But at the end of the day I was the one who needed help, from myself.
