We are often taught how to live and how to love, but the one thing we never really talk about is how to know when your relationship has ended — before it actually has.
Although it is daunting, these things happen… sometimes silently — so how do we know when our relationship is done?
There is no cold hard fact to the matter, however, according to Style Craze and Psych2Go, there are some red flags to look out for that may indicate your partner is ready to leave. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up 10 signs that may mean that they’ve lost interest in your relationship.
Fighting too much (or not fighting enough)
If you find yourselves fighting too much, your partner may be holding onto resentment, and if you’re not fighting enough (even about the little things) and you feel these situations are being swept under the rug, they may not care enough to fight. Keeping an eye out for extremes can help you identify if your relationship may need work
It is possible if your partner is distancing themselves, that they’re preparing for life on their own, and trying to figure out how to tell you.
While this is not always the case (and please don’t go jumping to this conclusion) distance in a relationship is always something to be talked about with one another.
Prioritizing someone else
They stop asking questions
If you’re invested in someone, you’re likely going to show your interest by asking questions and showing curiosity about their lives. If your partner used to ask you lots of questions, but they’ve stopped, it may be worth asking them why.
Lack of intimacy
If your partner isn’t interested in sex, or if they show a huge drop in interest compared to what is normal in your relationship, your partner may no longer be interested.
And the contrary...
They show no effort
Sometimes it's the little things like cuddling up and watching a good movie, going for a nice walk or just spending quality one-on-one time together.
If they no longer make romantic gestures or hint that they want to, they may be losing interest in you.
Seeing the future
Where to go from here?
The decision is yours to make, but a safe start is communication.
If you feel your partner is no longer interested, even after discussing these warning signs with them, maybe it is time to work on yourself and find someone who makes an effort, plans their future with you and prioritizes only you
