I, along with many other women I’m sure, am guilty of self-sabotage. I first noticed this when one of my friends pointed out that I will always find something wrong if I’m looking for it. I’ve tried to be more conscious when I know I’m self-sabotaging, and this list helps a lot.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Chiara Atik, a dating expert and author, identifies 8 things you may be doing to end the relationship early.

Nitpicking
There is no such thing as a perfect boyfriend. Atik explains more.

Testing His Breaking Point
How many times can Mr. Nice Guy get a perfect score? Don’t test him. Atik’s take.

Talking Too Much S*** About Him
Be choosy about what you blab. Here’s why.

Crushing on Other Guys
Don’t do it. Atik says this is “the big one.

Comparing Yourself to His Ex-Girlfriends
He’s with you, not her. And it’s for a reason. Atik explains.

Unprovoked Jealousy
Trust him or don’t be with him.
