A playlist full of reasons to forget them this year, ft. Khalid, KAYTRANADA, Dua Lipa & more.

If there's someone in your life you're thinking of ditching this Valentine's day, but you're just not sure if you want to go through with it, here's 14 reasons why you probably should. If any of these are true for you, it might be time for you to finally forget them and move on. And since it is the 14th, I picked 14 songs to help you do just that.

Reason 1: They Aren't Actively Showing Interest

"Back to Me" by Marian Hill & Lauren Jauregui

I know you want it, so you better get up on it or you'll lose it

If they're sending flirty vibes or hinting that they might be interested, but they never actually do anything about it, you should probably just forget about them. You might know in your heart that they want you, but if the actions just aren't matching up, is there really a point?

Reason 2: They're Taking You for Granted

"Leave Me Alone" by KAYTRANADA & Shay Lia

Boy you blew my mind

But I’m tired of my heart being broken

And my love being taken for granted

If you've put a lot of time and effort into a relationship, it doesn't feel good to have all of that go to waste. You might really love or care about a person, but if they continue to show you that they don't appreciate you and all you do for them, it might be time to leave them alone.

Reason 3: They Bring Too Much Negative Energy

"Colorado" by Kota the Friend

Dodging bad vibes like skrt

If the person you're with adds too much stress and drama to your life and they're affecting your positive mindset and hindering you from being your best self, it's time to leave them in the past.

Reason 4: You Know You'd Be Better Off

"Solitary" by Guardin

I think I'd be better off alone without you

If you've recently ended things with someone, chances are there will still be some lingering feelings floating around. But you may also be starting to realize you actually feel happier or more yourself when they're not there. If so, just know that the right decision has been made and you really are better off without them.

Reason 5: You Don't Like the Way They Treat You

"No More (Baby I'ma Do Right)" by 3LW

You can or you can't, can't

Be a man, be a man, man

If your significant other is sending mixed signals, acts differently around other people, or is demonstrating untrustworthy behavior, it might be time to end things. If they can't do right by you, then do right by yourself and kick them to the curb.

Reason 6: They're Not Giving You What You Need

"B.S." by Jhené Aiko & H.E.R.

Done dealing with you,

Don't know how to deal with me

If you're giving your all in your relationship but don't seem to be getting much out of it yourself, this likely isn't a relationship you should stay in. You shouldn't have to settle for anything less than you deserve, so cut them off and put all that energy into elevating you, not them. Then you can really flex on 'em and show them exactly what they'll be missing out on.

Reason 7: They Make You Feel Like You're Not Enough

"July" by Noah Cyrus

You remind me every day

I'm not enough, but I still stay

If your guy or girl constantly makes you feel like you're inadequate or not good enough, leave them. You deserve to feel and be treated like you're as special as you are. Don't be afraid to leave a situation that leaves you feeling less than. Change may be scary at times, but it's often necessary in order for us to grow and heal. Why stay the same when you can blossom into an even better version of your already beautiful self?

Reason 8: Their Love Isn't Genuine

"New Rules" by Dua Lipa

Don't pick up the phone

You know he's only callin' 'cause he's drunk and alone

If you feel like the so-called love you're receiving isn't authentic, and your partner is only treating you right when it benefits them, then it's time to get over them pronto. Remember Dua Lipa's 4 rules, and stop wasting your time with someone who only "loves" you when it's convenient.

Reason 9: You Just Don't Like Them Anymore

"Lost a Girl" by New Young Pony Club

I like you a lot, I guess I forgot

I don't like you much now

It's completely normal to stop liking someone you once had feelings for. And really, you might still even like them as a person overall, but you've come to the conclusion they're just not right for you. That is completely okay, and you shouldn't feel guilty for doing what's best for you.

Reason 10: They Aren't Completely Honest With You

"Cry Me A River" by Justin Timberlake

You should've picked honesty

Then you may not have blown it

If the person you're involved with isn't being truthful and is hiding things from you, this will naturally lead to trust issues in the relationship. If you can't trust them, you shouldn't be with them, period.

Reason 11: They're Not Ready

"How TF" by Deante' Hitchock & 6LACK

How TF am I supposed to tell you that

I love you when I just really discovered what love is?

Sometimes you might have really good chemistry with someone and you feel that the interest is mutual, but for whatever reason, they're just not ready to take it to that next level with you. If their feelings are indeed genuine, it's still possible for something to happen in the future once they've figured everything out that they need to. But until then, let them go and focus on you before giving too much of yourself to someone who simply isn't ready to receive it yet.

Reason 12: Their Love Lacks Depth

"Bad Luck" by Khalid

If you're gonna love me , you gotta love all of me

If you feel that the love you're getting from your partner is too shallow, and they only appreciate the prettiest parts of you, it may be time to find someone else who is capable of loving past the surface level. You deserve a much deeper love from someone who will love every part of you, and who appreciates and values you at your best and worst.

Reason 13: They Don't Like You for the Right Reasons

"Treat Me Like Somebody" by Tink

All you got to do is love me for me

If the person who's showing you interest seems to be interested in you for all the wrong reasons, you shouldn't be interested in them. They should want you for way more than just sex or an ego boost. They should love you because you're you, and they realize that what you have is something no-one else can offer them.

Reason 14: You're Ready to Move on

"Make It Happen" by Just John & Forever

Now that you're gone, now that it's over

I can move on, it's time for real change

Lastly, if you know you're done with this person and you're ready to move on, then own it! It's time for you to do you and flourish without anybody else bringing you down with their negative energy. Know that you are the absolute sh** and you don't need anyone to validate that for you.

If you related to one or more of these reasons, give this article a like and remember that you deserve the absolute best love this Valentine's Day, and every day! Enjoy the full 14 Reasons playlist below (:
