When she does not really care about you:

When a girl truly loves a guy, she finds it easy to tell him everything that is happening with her and also wants to know what is happening with him too.

Emotional blackmail

Does she threaten you? Does she intimidate you? Does she shame you? If the answer to these questions is YES, break the relationship. Girls that use this technique often say things like, “I cannot believe you would do such a thing, I thought you were much better than my ex from the past.” Or “I cannot survive another day if you leave me,”.
