5 Types of Relationships that will Never Work Out For Long

The journey of finding a long time partner or the one you feel to be the one perfect for settling down with is always hard and comes with a number of experiments. Many of us are on the relationship journeys. Through this, there are a number of relationships that we come across the way to ‘the one’ that do not always work out.

If you haven’t come across at least one of these five types of relationships, my brother/ sister, you still have a very long way to the so-called ‘right one’.

Codependent Relationship

This type of relationship always involves when one or both the partners cannot function without the other.

It is always characterized by a  feeling of anxiety or depression when the other is not around. One can even do out of the ordinary things to keep his/ her partner’s love such as canceling a trip planned months ago with friends or give up a great job to have more time with each other.

Rebound Relationship

This relationship comes when one or both involved have just gone through a breakup and need love to cover up the pain. This relationship is always fragile and almost never works out because it is built on the fear of facing the reality of your recent breakup, rather than focusing on this new person and whether or not they are compatible for you.

Open Relationship

At some point, any one should think of giving this relationship a try. Here, the two individuals are emotionally committed to one another, but are both free to sleep with other people. This type of relationship mostly only works when both parties aren’t that emotionally invested in one another.

Toxic Relationship

Most often this one is recognized in hindsight, but even still it leaves you feeling emotionally, mentally and physically drained. The toxic relationship is one in which you and your partner have an extreme attraction to one another, but have such drastically different morals, opinions, or integrity that all you do is fight.

You bring out the worst in each other. But you can’t stay away from each other. You’re always on edge in this relationship but it’s like being on a drug.


This relationship starts with a lot of fun but doesn’t involve plans for the future. There’s nothing wrong with your partner, but something just isn’t right. You enjoy spending time together, but there’s no ding ding; This relationship is easy, and good for distraction for a while.
