Show Notes

Welcome everyone and pull up a seat at the table. It’s Lunchtime in Rome. Tonight’s episode 197 is entitled,    “Toxic Relationships”. We've all been there.  The time when we have finally realized that a relationship is not going to work and is, in fact, toxic. This week, we will be going over what many people have submitted when asked, "What is a dead giveaway of a toxic relationship?"

Pull up a seat at the table and join us!

What is a dead giveaway of a toxic relationship?

  • My 57 year old colleague constantly has to send videos and pics of him working to his wife

  • I found out the other week that my buddy has to send his girlfriend detailed notes with timestamps of legitimately everything he does while hanging out with the guys…

    • 9:14 went down to the kitchen for a glass or water 9:15 stopped to pet the cats before heading upstairs 

    • 9:18 made it back upstairs and sat on the right side of the couch

  • One partner always gets their way (mutual giving)

    • For me, it was "easier" to bend over backward than to deal with the whining and complaining if I stood my ground. Easier is in quotes because it was only easier in the short term - long term made life hell

    • Michael & Jan from The Office

  • If someone is always talking crap about their partner whenever they are not together

  • Inability to take a step back, listen and analyze the other person's point and actually come to a conclusion during a conflict

  • Someone who does not let you have a life outside of the relationship and gets upset when you see friends or do hobbies you like, even if you make time for them

  • Break up, make up, break up, make up, rinse, and repeat
