Have you been in the relationship for a while and over the years it seems as though the relationship has hit a dead end? Has the subject of marriage come up periodically only when you bring it up? Do you feel like leaving but for some reason you hang in there because you think things are going to change? If your answer is yes to any of these questions you may just be his eternal girlfriend.

An eternal girlfriend is a woman who has been in a relationship with a guy but the relationship is not progressing. She is hoping that things will change when she knows deep down inside they won't. She makes suggestions of things for them to do and in some cases she plans and pays for the activity.

How do women get into this type of relationship?

There are some women who in the beginning of the relationship see the possibilities. At some point she gets so caught up in the guy and his needs until she gets lost when it comes to their own. Before she knows it time has gone. She is at the point where she has invested so much time into the relationship until she stays with the hopes that things will change.

How does she break away?

In order for a woman to remove her title as an eternal girlfriend she has to first realize that is what she is. Once she realizes that is what she is she has to decide that not only does she want more from a relationship she has to realize that she deserves more.

At this point she has to have the courage to remove herself from her current situation. Once this is done in some cases he will realize what went wrong and make it right. On the other hand he may go out and find someone to take over where his last eternal girlfriend left off.

Are you in a dead end relationship going nowhere? Are you his eternal girlfriend? Do you know someone else who is? If so, do they realize they are? Share your thoughts.
