Not all relationships are built to last. It’s a sad truth, but it’s the truth nonetheless. Unless you’ve found the person with whom you want to spend of your life in one another, break ups can be inevitable.
Sometimes this can be a good thing. If you’re falling out of love with your partner, it can be better for the both of you if you decide to end things amicably. However, this can sting as hard as anything could if you don’t feel the same way. If you’re concerned that your partner is falling out of love with you, here are some signs you might want to look out for.
They Consistently Cancel Plans With You
Obviously not all plans can be followed through on; shit comes up and we have to adjust our lives accordingly. However, if your partner is cancelling on you consistently to the point where you hardly ever see them, they might not feel as in love with you as they once were.
They Avoid Talking About Your Future Together
If you’re trying to discuss your mutual future with your partner and they don’t want to talk about it with you, it probably means they don’t see that future happening. They might not want to get your hopes up only to crush them or they might just not be able to talk about it without hurting you, making this a definite sign that they are falling out of love with you.
They Seem to Force Themselves to Talk to You
One of the biggest foundations of any relationship is communication. If your partner doesn’t want to speak with you and only does so as an obligation, it likely means that they would prefer avoiding communicating with you. Partners need to be able to communicate in order to work through their problems, which brings me to my next point…
Conflicts Don’t Get Resolved
Disagreements in relationships are inevitable, and the strength of your relationship relies heavily on your mutual ability to resolve them. If these problems don’t get resolved, they pile up and pile up until they become insurmountable. Whether you and your partner can’t come to an agreement or if they simply don’t want to put in the effort to solve your problems, things are taking a turn for the worse.
They Don’t Want to Have Sex With You Anymore
Sex in a relationship is among the most intimate aspects of your partnership. If your partner is consistently turning down your sexual advances or if they stop making them all together, they likely don’t feel the same intimacy that they once did, which means that their feelings for you are falling away.
They Forget Important Dates
If your partner isn’t remembering things like your anniversary, it can potentially mean that they no longer consider it to be important. Although this is certainly not always the case because some people are bad with dates or just forgetful in general, it’s definitely something to keep an eye out if your partner was once very good with important dates and no longer is.
They Don’t Share Their Emotions With You
Going back to the subject of communication, partners sharing their emotions with one another is vital in the success of their relationship. By sharing emotions, we reveal parts of ourselves for only one person to see. If your partner stops sharing their emotions with you, they may no longer feel like revealing those parts of themselves to you. It can also mean that the only emotions they feel toward you are negative ones and they don’t want to hurt your feelings.
You Are No Longer a Priority
While you shouldn’t necessarily expect your partner to drop everything every time you need something from them, but they should be putting you ahead of certain things in life. If your partner starts putting menial things in life ahead of your needs, there’s a solid chance they’re falling out of love with you.
