It’s never easy to admit that your relationship isn’t as great or happy as it used to be, but you have to admit all that is bad, so you can either make an effort to make things better again or decide to call it quits and move on.
Do you know what makes a relationship fall apart?
How many times have you noticed a couple in a restaurant where both of them were completely absorbed by their phones? They didn’t talk to one another; their smiley faces weren’t for each other but for the content they were watching online. What’s worse is that they didn’t even look at each other; they were eating their dinner and paying attention to their screens.
For me, this is a RED FLAG that a relationship is about to end. I’m not even thinking about PDA, but the simple fact that the partners of a couple can’t seem to be bothered by their own company is a red flag.
There are many people who stay together for the sake of their relationship or for the fact that they have children together and think that it’s better this way. But in my opinion, if there’s no love, warmth, affection, and understanding in a couple’s life, the relationship is pointless.
Speaking of that, have you ever thought that your romantic connection is falling apart? As if you don’t care whether you stay together or break up the following month. There are many signs that indicate you and your partner grew out of love, and I’m going to talk to you about everything.
And if you want to give your relationship a second chance and find your way to one another so you can be happy again, I have a few tips for you to try. Without further ado, here are five serious signs that your relationship is about to end (and what to do about it).
1. Lack of communication
How do you know if your relationship is not exactly the happiest? You simply don’t communicate anymore. If you don’t say anything more important than hello, ask if they want to eat, wish them a good day, and say good night when you go to bed, or even if you don’t say these things at all, you should be aware that this is a red flag.
Of course, I know that there might be times when you’re so busy or maybe upset that the last thing you want is to have an hour-long conversation with your partner. The fact that communication is simply not part of your couple anymore should leave you thinking.
Experts say that the 1st thing you notice when you grow out of love is silence. You simply feel like there’s nothing to talk about, and you prefer to mind your own business and forget about texting or calling.
If you want to save your relationship, have a talk with your partner and address all the issues you might be having. Tell them what’s going on inside your mind and try to come up with different ways to talk to one another and open up again. You can simply start by asking each other about how your day went and then build up from there.
2. You get angry fast
When there’s something that you don’t like about your partner or about your relationship in general, you’re more likely to lose your temper the minute you find something that you don’t agree with.
If you’re always on the verge of getting angry with the person you used to consider your significant other, that might be a sign that your relationship is falling apart.
Analyze yourself and check if there are any personal reasons that made you act this way, then share everything you’ve discovered with your partner and find a way to deal with it if you both want to save your relationship.
3. No intimacy
Don’t be so quick to judge this, because things might be a bit different than they seem. There are many couples who don’t make it a priority to take care of the intimate aspect of their relationship, but it doesn’t mean that they don’t love each other anymore.
Sometimes, life gets busy, you’re stressed and tired all the time, and it takes too much energy and focus to have fun in the bedroom. Of course, if something like this happens, the best way to deal with it is to talk to your partner and share with them everything that makes you feel like that.
On the other hand, when it seems like the intimate life in your couple is long gone, but you don’t have any particular reasons why you don’t want to engage in any physical activity, it might be a red flag.
When you’re excited about your relationship, you want all the romance you can get, but if you’re bored or if the romantic connection you have doesn’t make you feel happy and fulfilled, intimacy is not going to seem fun and desirable. On the contrary, it will only annoy you.
Decide if you want to save your relationship or not, and check in with your partner to discover what the core reason is that drives you apart in the bedroom. This way, you’ll be able to come up with a solution to spice things up again and get you both excited about the beautiful connection you share.
4. No PDA
PDA stands for public displays of affection, which means all those cute and lovely gestures people make when they’re in love with one another, such as holding hands, kissing, hugging, and walking arm-in-arm.
When all these gestures have been replaced by a physical distance when you walk together, and maybe even keeping your arms crossed at your chest and your eyes on the ground, these are signs that your relationship is falling apart.
If you want to feel close to your partner again but simply have no idea how to do it, just reach out and tell them exactly what you think. They might be feeling just like you, and that will make your job a lot easier since it won’t take you a long time to rekindle your relationship.
But if you feel like you don’t care about PDA anymore, but rather that it makes you feel good that you get none of these gestures, that’s your clue that it might be best to go separate ways.
5. You don’t have common interests anymore
Doing certain activities together as a couple makes your relationship stronger and more enjoyable. If you want to know more about this topic, here is a book that will help you understand your situation better and it will also give you tips on how to improve it. That’s because common interests keep people together and make them more connected to one another.
Moreover, when you have activities that you both enjoy doing, it will make you excited to spend time together and then have the chance to talk about how everything went.
But when you and your partner don’t share the same passions and interests, you might discover that you are basically on a solo adventure. Do you like to engage in all these activities by yourself? That means that you might be better off without the relationship you’re in.
On the other hand, if you’d like your partner to be there with you and share that time and activity together, it means that you still want to save your relationship and should do everything you can for it.
I know that I already said it a couple of times, but in my opinion, everything starts with the basics, which means communication. If you talk to your partner and share everything that makes you feel sad and angry and tell them that you wish they’d do this and that, maybe they’ll tell you exactly what they need from you and you’ll find a way to solve everything.
