Surefire Signs Your Relationship Is Over
One of the most common complaints among newly-single people is that they wish they’d gotten out of their old relationship sooner. Why? Well, the signs of a deteriorating relationship are usually abundant, but people generally don’t know what to look for.
But like ripping off a Band-Aid, it’s often better to just get the breakup over with, rather than delaying the inevitable. I am spilling the top things I see that indicate an impending split. And if you see your relationship reflected here, be prepared the inevitable.
They’re Suddenly Spending More Time With Their Family and Friends
One of the biggest red flags that your partner is about to check out! You notice that they are spending less time with you & dedicating more time into other relationships in their inner circle.
You’ve Both Become Extremely Agreeable
This might seem like a good thing, but it can indicate the one or both parties in a relationship no longer care enough to put their foot down. Fighting is actually decreased & negotiating is not even needed anymore because the person or the couple is just done. They have chosen to submit to the fact they want out of the relationship, so their indifference displays as being agreeable. Most couples need to negotiate or discuss issues, not necessarily argue or bicker, but at least have a discussion. Being agreeable is great, but when your partner is always agreeable, the spark is clearly gone.
When Something Major Happens, They’re Not The First Person You Tell
When you get a promotion, lose a big client, or win your fantasy football league, who’s the first person you tell? If someone comes before your partner in sharing either good or bad news, they are no longer your primary confidant.
You’re No Longer Doing “Your” Activities Together
Every couple falls into rituals or habits that become their “thing”, For example, watching a certain TV show together or making tacos every Tuesday. When one person starts bailing on those plans or doing them on their own repeatedly, it could be a sign that the relationship is nearing its end.
You Feel Alone Even When You’re Together
Feel like you’re pretty much on your own, even when you’re spending time with your S.O.? This is the biggest concern. You are physically together, but emotionally feel alone & disconnected. It is a silent sign that the relationship is unfortunately headed south.
You’re Wondering If You Can Do Better
People evolve & change & grow. This is inevitable. That great person you met two years ago was great based on who you were then. You may not be growing at the same pace. He is a nice person & you have love for him, but there are thoughts of ‘where is this going?’ or, ‘do I really want this?’ When those questions start popping up, it’s your inner being nudging you elsewhere.
You Notice Their Flaws More Often Than Their Strengths
When you’re in love with someone, you tend to see the good in them more readily than the bad. If you lose sign of all of their positive qualities, it could be a warning sign. If you’re struggling to say anything positive about your partner & find yourself speaking poorly or bad mouthing them to others, it’s likely time to end the relationship.
You’re Not Talking About The Future Anymore
Couples discuss the future enthusiastically. They regularly discuss things like what’s next in their careers, where they want to live & whether or not they want to have kids.
Your Gut Is Telling You Something Is Up
Your body can register that something is off long before your brain acknowledges it, you can sense it in the other person’s mood or body language, even though nothing has occurred & they haven’t said anything. Yet, you pick up on something & have a hunch or a gut instinct that something is going on between the two of you. In the long run, it’s probably better to listen to that voice and do something about it rather than tamping it down.
