  • A relationship becomes toxic when it involves abuse physically or mentally. It is also toxic when you start to question why you are with this person. If you are asking this question to begin with, it sounds like it already has or is beginning to be toxic. Cheating, questioning your relationship, disrespect, bringing out more negative than positive feelings are all signs that you are in a toxic relationship as well.

  • It becomes toxic when the relationship brings you more negative than positive. I would cut ties when I start avoiding situations with that person, when being around that person is the last thing I want to do.

  • I just spent over four years in a toxic relationship and now am sitting here wondering why I put myself through it. I learned a lot from it so it wasn't all bad but I'm not grieving over it being over. It opened the door for me to meet a truly wonderful man who likes and appreciated me and treats me with respect. If you cut loose of the bad, the good can come in to your life.

  • Abuse of any kind, you should walk away. 'Should', but not everyone can. When the person makes you...not you anymore. If they don't bring out the best in you on purpose, because they are just a bad person, it's toxic.

  • Abuse. It doesn't have to be physical. It can be mental or psychological.
