Falling out of love might be difficult or it might be easy as pie, but when a relationship has run its course, you just know. You might not want to admit it, but you know. When it comes to the signs and symptoms of falling out of love, here are some red flags and neon signs that are telling you your relationship has reached it’s expiration date.
1 / 10
Your partner is basically your roommate at this point: someone to eat meals and watch TV with. And I'm sure you love them, but you're not in love with them. At least, not anymore. You both need (and deserve) a little romance in your lives.
2 / 10
You no longer have conversations
Sure you talk, but you don't really talk, you know? When you're together, you're usually thinking of something (or maybe someone) else and it's just the daily mundane chit-chat, no actual, down-to-earth, loving communication, which is totally necessary for a healthy relationship.
3 / 10
Your sex life is nonexistent
Sex should make two people closer than ever. Sure, the frequency of it may dwindle over time, but has it come to a complete stop? Are you even sexually attracted to your partner anymore? If the desire is gone, there's really not much else to say. Not having it will only cause resentment from one (or both) of you.

Your eyes start to wander
If you're happy, no one else compares. When you're not, everyone else is a possibility. Or the idea of being alone is so much better than what your relationship has become.
5 / 10
Your other body parts start to wander
You are cheating on your partner (or have cheated in the past) and don't feel guilty. Maybe you're not getting any at home or maybe the attraction has waned; either way, get out. You're not doing anyone any good.

Disagreements don’t get resolved
People who are in happy, healthy relationships communicate. Those who aren't happy, well, don't. One argument evolves into a fight, which turns into 10 fights and you two are locked in the same old battle, so much so that you don't even remember what you were fighting about in the first place.

They annoy you quicker
Those cute little things your partner does? Yeah, they're no longer cute. Instead, you'd rather put your head through a wall than watch him chew. Or listen to him snore. Or hear her snort-laugh. You get the idea.

It becomes work
People get busy with different things, so when spending time together feels exhausting, it can stress a couple out. And who will you take that stress out on? That's right: your partner. If you no longer enjoy their company, the only thing that will come out of it is fighting, drama, bitterness and resentment. Just because you weren't happy, doesn't mean breaking up is easy.

You’ll do anything to be out of the house
You pick up a new hobby that takes up all your free time. Or you're at the gym earlier and longer. You drag out shopping trips. Hell, even going to work and overtime looks good. Don't be afraid of loneliness, it's time to move on.
10 / 10
Other couples in love are infuriating
You're not jealous, per se, but watching two people who appear to genuinely love each other while you and your partner are two feet apart and not talking is the reality check you didn't want. Why can't you have that? Well, you can. Just with someone else.
