I won't get into details, but most relationships of mine end because of something I'm not doing "enough." Apart from long-term relationships, girls I'm dating tend to cease communication for reasons they don't ever explain (for example, you had great dates, great conversation, maybe even great sex and then you aren't receiving texts/calls back). In those situations, I assume that I messed up somehow, but I have no idea about how I am actually messing up. So I wanted to ask (especially guys), do you think relationships end from something that you did specifically? Or do you think that they end from something that you failed to do? And if you failed to do something, did you know what you failed to do beforehand? Or was it already too late once you found out (if you ever did)?

Usually, I try my best to communicate with my boyfriend. If he continuously doesn't do that, or makes no effort then I stop wanting to be in a relationship with him and detach. I give him plenty of time to work things out, but if it doesn't work then it doesn't work.1

I think omissions lead to break ups, but the actions are the last straw that cause breakups.
So for example, if a girl is recieving enough love, sex, affection, attention, and emotional connection from the relationship, she is more likely to only make a minor argument out of certain actions (provided that it isn't something that is completely unforgivable).
But if a girls needs are not being met, and she feels detached or neglected, then she is more likely to explode when such an action comes along--almost as if she was waiting for the action to happen, so that she would have a reason to break it off.0
